New Jersey Elopement Packages
Couples looking to save money by staging a small and simple wedding would do well to consider New Jersey for at least three reasons: 1) it’s nicknamed the “Garden State”, which means it has plenty of beautiful outdoor venues perfectly suited for elopement weddings; 2) it has miles and miles of picturesque Atlantic beaches; and 3) it’s close to some of the nation’s most populous cities – so it’s easy to get to (yet far enough away to offer respite from the madding crowds.) For those looking to combine an elopement wedding with a trip to New York City or Philadelphia, New Jersey might be the ideal spot to plan your destination wedding.

Couples who wish to get married in New Jersey should apply for a marriage license in the municipality where the marriage ceremony will take place; non-residents of New Jersey will be issued a license that is valid only in that particular town or city. On the other hand, New Jersey residents can receive a license that is valid throughout the state. Each individual must produce proof of identification in the form of a driver’s license, passport, or state-issued ID. Also, a Social Security card or number is required. The fee for New Jersey marriage licenses is $28. The state has a seventy-two hour waiting period from the time of the application before vows can be exchanged. The marriage ceremony must be performed within six months of the license’s date of issue.
