Quaker Wedding Certificate with lines for signatures

A Quaker style marriage certificate is signed by the bride and groom, as well as witnesses and guests. But you don't have to be a Quaker to have a marriage certificate with places for the bride, groom, the officiant and guests to sign! It's your wedding, and your choice.

NOTE:  Be Careful To Protect the Document for Signing

Here’s an important note: make sure you have someone help guests sign your certificate so it will be balanced if all the lines are not used. You don’t want people to sign one after another, and have blank spaces on the opposite side of the marriage certificate.

Also, make sure you provide a paper towel or hand rest so the oil from your guest’s hands don’t spoil the certificate. Also, a good practice is to make sure that guests are not carrying food or drinks near the certificate – have a place away from the certificate for them to put down anything that might damage the document!


Ketubah for Jewish Weddings

Jewish marriages can also have the bride and groom and or witnesses sign a document called a "Ketubah".  I do not work in Hebrew, but if you are interested in having an acutal Ketubot written in Hebrew I can refer you to another scribe who is a great friend.

I remember reading in Jewish history that in Russia, in the Jewish Shetls, one woman who keep all the contracts safe. If a woman wanted a divorce because the husband wasn't living up to their contract, the Ketubot would be brought to the Rabbi and the marriage would be dissolved.

Totally Customized Marriage Certificate

I love designing an entire certificate so it reflects the couples design preferences. Of course that is a more expensive choice because of the extra time it takes.
