Maryland

Marriage License Information

How Do I Get a Marriage License?

Maryland requires that a marriage license be obtained from the Circuit Court Clerk’s Office in the county where the marriage is to take place.

It is recommended that you contact the Circuit Court Clerk’s Office in the county where you plan to marry as each county has different fees.

The Requirements for Worcester County are as Follows
  • Only one of the parties needs to appear
  • The fee is $35.00 cash only.
The Following Information Must be Provided by Either the Man or the Woman
  • The full name of each party.
  • The place of residence of each party.
  • State or Country with providence of birth of each party.
  • The age of each party ID is required for both parties (Driver’s license, birth certificate, or passport).
  • Whether the parties are related by blood or marriage, and if so, the degree of relationship.
  • The marital status of each party.
  • Whether either party was married previously, and the date and place of each death or judicial determination that ended any former marriage (to include a copy of any divorce decree).
  • The social security number of each party. (note: this will be kept in a secure area of the computer and will not be made available for public inspection)
  • Copy of final divorce decree, if applicable.

The license is issued at the same time the application is taken. The license will reflect an effective date and time at 6:00 a.m. on the second day after issue, and will be valid for 6 months. This means that for a Saturday wedding, you must apply for a license no later than the close of business on Thursday.

You will be given three copies of the marriage license, which the official performing the ceremony will complete. Instructions for completion and distribution are on the copies of the license. If you would like a civil ceremony, please note that there are no justices of the peace in Maryland. Only the Clerk of the Circuit Court, or an appointed, designated Deputy Clerk of the Circuit Court, or a judge may perform civil ceremonies.

If it is not convenient to visit the Clerk’s Office in the county where the marriage is to take place, you may apply for a license using a Non-Resident Marriage Affidavit form for Worcester County. This form must be taken to the Clerk of the Circuit Court or comparable official where you reside. A “comparable official” would be a public official in the State, County, or Province where you reside who issues marriage licenses or performs the same duties as the Clerk of the Circuit Court in Maryland. A notary public’s affidavit is not sufficient, since that official, although a public officer, does not perform the same duties and is not comparable to the Clerk of Court in Maryland. Please call the Clerk’s Office for more information.

In Worcester County, the Clerk of the Court and his designated deputies perform civil ceremonies at the Courthouse between the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, with the exception of Holidays. Appointments are required. Upon request, the Clerk of the Court will perform civil marriage ceremonies in the circuit court’s wedding chapel. The fee charged for a civil ceremony is $25.00 cash only.

Certified Copies of Marriage Licenses

Certified copies may be obtained from the Clerk’s Office or you may request a certified copy by mail. Mail your request to the Clerk of the Circuit Court, Circuit Court for Worcester County, Marriage Records Department, One West Market Street, Room 104, Snow Hill, Maryland 21863.

Please Include in Your Request
  • Names of individuals at the time they were married.
  • Date of Marriage.
  • A check or money order in the amount of $5.50 for the certified copy, made payable to “Clerk of Court.”
  • Your return address.

For further information on obtaining a copy of a marriage license or questions about civil ceremonies, please call the Clerk’s Office at 410-632-5500.

Beach Wedding Favors

How To Choose Beach Wedding Favors

Seaside weddings are very romantic and usually casual and intimate at the same time. Like any traditional wedding, your favors for your guests need to reflect the mood and decoration of your ceremony, as well as each of your personalities.

Your family and friends will love non-traditional, but related favors that will remind them of your special day for years. Favors are also the way you and your fiancé say thank you to your guests, so make them special.

Your selection will depend a lot on your wedding plans. If you are having a sit-down reception, your favors could double as place cards since they would have the names of your guests already on them. A festive barbecue buffet would be perfect for a more whimsical favor, like wind chimes made out of driftwood and shells.

When you are thinking about wedding favors that complement the beach setting, consider creating your own. You can buy large clam shells, spray them gold and sprinkle some clean white sand in the wet paint to make a perfect holder for whatever you want to put in the shell, like miniature soaps in fish, dolphin or shell shapes.

Another suggestion for the clam shell holders, is foil-wrapped chocolates, a small bag of exotic nuts and a miniature bottle or two of an expensive liquor…a miniature party in a golden shell. Round, short candles that would fit nicely in the half shell are also welcome favors.

If you want larger favors, use colorful plastic beach buckets filled with suntan lotion, a tube of bug repellant, flip-flops and inexpensive sun visors.

Food, of course is always welcome. Your hotel might even offer a service for baking and wrapping small cakes or cookies so your favor treat would be fresh when you use them at your wedding reception.

Let your imagination design your favors for you. If your wedding ceremony is fun and full of the beach colors, sounds and scents, echo those feelings with your favors.

Beach Wedding Invitations

Beach Wedding Invitations

Your beach wedding invitations do not have to be formal if you want to carry out your theme of a casual beach wedding. Your choice of invitations can determine the overall feel and tone of your celebration.

 Beach wedding invitations can have a beach graphic on them, like a photograph of a beach scene or shells washed up with the tides. Other good photographic choices might be sunsets and sunrises over the ocean or a simple pelican sitting on top of a pier.  You know – if you don’t have one, just check out some sock photo sites and you will find the perfect one for you.

A clever way to invite people to your wedding would be a message in a small plastic bottle with a little sand on the bottom. Use light paper with a beach theme or color, write the message and roll it tightly and tie it with a piece of silky ribbon. Before putting the cork on top, run a piece of ribbon attached to the invitation out of the bottle so your guests can get to it without a hammer.

You can buy large seashells, decorate them with gold or silver glitter, and tuck your invitation inside. Some tiny, metallic, colorful stars or shells sprinkled in the larger shells with your invitation would carry out your theme. Check craft and wedding stores for bags of glitter or design cutouts.

Your imagination is your only boundary here. Be creative.  And of course these days, it pays to visit Pinterest.  There are some very creative wedding designs there to grab as your own.  Just do a search for Beach Wedding Invitations and sit tight – TONS will pop up in front of you!

Enjoy !

Let me know how I can help as you are planning.

Beach Wedding Attire

Beach Wedding Attire

For a beach wedding you do not want to copy all the formal attire found at any wedding you’ve attended in the past or dreamed over in bridal magazines. You can be elegant and casual at the same time with a little attention to some of the practicalities involved in a beach wedding.

Beach Wedding Attire ~ For The Bride:

In any wedding the major consideration for the bride is her wedding dress and, while a beach wedding might be more casual, it is no exception to this huge detail.

Your first concern if you getting married on the sand, is staying cool in the sun,
This means avoiding heavy fabrics and absolutely NO ONE (maybe grandma) wears stockings. Some people will tell you to keep in mind is that long bridal gown trains are not practical in sand or sea breezes. I’m not so sure about that.  We have captured absolutely stunning photographs of just this during many weddings.  By no means it is essential or even important.  But if it is your dream, by all means do what you have dreamed about.

Traditional veils, may need to be weighted down, and loose hats need to be firmly attached so a sharp breeze doesn’t send your decorated wedding hat out to float on the tide.

Consider selecting a strapless satin sheath or sarong style wedding dress.  Beach Weddings have become so extremely popular, that Beach Wedding Attire has followed right along.  You will find many stores and websites dedicated to exactly what you are looking for.  Check out my blog post on affordable wedding gowns.  Gorgeous and inexpensive.  You won’t even mind getting salt water on them for the awesome photos you want!

Either type of beach wedding attire will cling to your body, showing off your curves. They can provide an elegant, casual look and blend in with your island/beach atmosphere. Make sure you have your selection hemmed up some to allow for your feet sinking slightly into the sand when you walk up “the aisle.”  You will find this one tiny tip to be HUGELY important if you have ever seen a bride trudge through the sand not realizing that with no shoes and soft sand – she would become shorter than hen she tried her dress on in the store.

High heels and hose will not work easily for beach weddings. Your heels will sink into the sand and your elegant glide to the altar will be very clumsy and ugly. A good, classy alternative could be dressy sandals. You might want to think about going barefoot, which is perfect for the beach.  Always keep in mind though – the sand can become hot – very hot – depending on the time of day and time of year your wedding is planned.

For The Groom:

With his bride looking casually elegant in her beach wedding attire, the groom will not want to wear a tux, suit or even a jacket on the beach when he weds the love of his life.

Light, tropical slacks and a casual dress shirt are popular selections for grooms to wear for their beach wedding attire. Wedding planners often suggest the groom select an outfit that reflects the soft hues of the beach and the ocean, like tan, white, cream or blue. Cotton or linen fabric is preferable and cooler than any other normal fabric you can wear for your beach wedding.

Aloha and Mexican wedding shirts look classy and cool and are often the choice of grooms. Shoes can be sandals or loafers. Going barefoot or even sandals or flip flops to match the bride is also an option.

Now, Go Shopping for YOUR Beach Wedding Attire and Have A Blast !!

I look forward to talking with you anytime –

Until then ~ Pastor Mary

Popular U.S. Beach Wedding Destinations

Seven Popular U.S. Beach Wedding Destinations

You don’t have to fly off to a faraway beach on a tropical island to find the perfect sandy setting and soft breezes. You can find beautiful locations right in the USA, where the travel fees will be cheaper and the requirements for marriages be clearer.

Ocean City, Maryland  – Since THIS is the location you really want, there will be more information posted here about Ocean City.

Ocean City, sometimes known as OC, or OCMD, is an Atlantic Ocean resort area in Worcester County, Maryland. Ocean City is widely known in the Mid- Atlantic Region of the United States and is a frequent destination for vacationers in that area. The population was 7,102 at the 2010 census, although during summer weekends the city hosts between 320,000 and 345,000 vacationers, and up to 8 million visitors annually. During the summer, Ocean City becomes Maryland’s second most populated town.

The land upon which the city was built, as well as much of the surrounding area, was obtained by Englishman Thomas Fenwick from the Native Americans. In 1869, businessman Isaac Coffin built the first beach-front cottage to receive paying guests. During those days, people arrived by stage coach and ferry. They came to fish off the shore, to enjoy the natural beauty of the Atlantic Ocean pounding against the long strip of sandy beach, to collect seashells, or just to sit back and watch the rolling surf.

Soon after, other simple boarding houses were built on the strip of sand, with the activity attracting prominent businessmen from Baltimore, Philadelphia,, and Wilmington. They came not so much to visit as to survey the spit. A decision was made to develop it and 250 lots were cut into it, and a corporation was formed to help with the development of the land. The corporation stock of 4,000 shares sold for $25 each. (Don’t we all wish our forefathers had bought some!)

Prior to 1870, what is now Ocean City was known as “The Ladies’ Resort to the Ocean.”

The Atlantic Hotel, the first major hotel in the town, opened July 4, 1875. Besides the beach and ocean, it offered dancing and billiard rooms to the visitors of its more than 400 rooms, and for years it was the northern-most attraction in Ocean City. By 1878 tourists could come by railroad from Berlin to the shores of Sinepuxent Bay across from the town. By 1881, a line was completed across Sinepuxent Bay to the shore, bringing rail passengers directly into the town.

Ocean City’s inlet during the off season

The Ocean City Inlet was formed during a significant hurricane in 1933, which also destroyed the train tracks across the Sinepuxent Bay. The inlet separated what is now Ocean City from Assateague Island. The Army Corps of Engineers took advantage of nature’s intervention and made the inlet at the south end of Ocean City permanent. The inlet eventually helped to establish Ocean City as an important Mid-Atlantic fishing port as it offered easy access to the fishing grounds of the Atlantic Ocean.

Ogunquit, Maine:

This gorgeous place by the sea was discovered by artists over 100 years ago and they helped to create the town it is today; full of museums, art galleries and hikes in the mountains of Maine. The 1-1/4 mile beach, Marginal Way, is perfect for a beach wedding and a clambake or a banquet of famous Maine lobster and cocktails after the ceremony. You could get married with a background of waves crashing into granite cliffs and tall evergreens rising above the birch trees.

More info: http://www.ogunquit.org/

Crane Beach, Massachusetts:

Located near Ipswich, you have 4 miles of white sand on one of the most charming beaches in New England. This beach was once part of a large, early 20th-century summer estate of  Richard T. Crane, a successful Chicago industrialist. The Crane Wildlife Refuge and Castle Hill are nearby.

Ocracoke Island, North Carolina:

This island is located on the southernmost tip of the famous North Carolina Outer Banks and is perfect for a private, highly romantic wedding. The 16 miles of undeveloped, natural beaches are only accessible by ferry, private boat or small plane. The island is not heavily populated with only 800 residents living there year-round, so your wedding would be as private as you want it to be.

You can get married on windswept beaches, at Ocracoke’s 1823 lighthouse, on a sunset cruise or quietly at a beach cottage.

or http://www.OcracokeVillage.com

Coronado, California:

Romantic beauty is everywhere on this very popular beach located a quick heartbeat from San Diego. Getting there involves a trip over a curving bridge with magnificent views of San Diego and the Pacific Ocean before reaching the island and one of the top wedding destinations in the U.S., the Hotel del Coronado. The sunsets alone are often so spectacular that crowds gather most evenings just to watch the evening’s beauty.

For more information: http://www.CoronadoVisitorCenter.com

  Jekyll Island, Georgia:

A wedding wrapped in Southern hospitality and the charms of one of Jekyll Island’s 10 miles of unspoiled beach might just be what you’re looking for. This island is one of Georgia’s barrier islands. The weather is mild and pleasant year-round, which makes it a perfect backdrop for long walks on the beach with your fiance. The tides are famous for scattering beautiful shells in the sand to add to your hand-in-hand walk along ever-changing beaches.

Information: http://JekyllIsland.com

Kapalua Bay Beach, Maui, Hawaii:
Situated between two lava points that have shaped the shoreline into a crescent, Kapalua Bay Beach is reputed to be one of the very best beach wedding sites in Hawaii. The tranquil surf and gorgeous sunsets make it a perfect choice for your dream wedding ceremony.

Information: http://mauiisland.com/_popKapluaInfo.htm

Caladesi Island State Park, Florida:

If you are looking for a more rugged, natural wedding setting, this park consisting of six undeveloped barrier islands, might be perfect for your ocean-side ceremony. One aspect to consider is that these islands are very susceptible to threats of floods, fires and many other natural ocean-side  disasters, requiring some flexibility and backup planning on your part. It might be good practice for your marriage.
