    Commemorating Your Marriage

    Couples getting married may have a marriage license, but may not have an attractive certificate documenting the important event of marriage. The good news is that printable marriage certificates are available online, and can be downloaded and customized for the couple that is tying the knot.

    Of course, these certificates are not intended to be legal documents (hopefully couples have those safely tucked away), but are important and creative ways to help keep the wedding day alive for many years to come.

    Couples are not the only people who can use a souvenir marriage certificate. Clergy and other officers overseeing marriages can issue their own creative certificates, and so can friends and family members to make unique gifts that share the perspective of those who know, love and support the couple that just got married.

    Below readers will find four sources of downloadable certificates of marriage that are available online.
