No-Cost Nuptials: Get Married for Free in New Hope this Weekend

Couples that arrive at River House at Odette’s in New Hope this Sunday — with marriage licenses in hand — can unite in a free civil ceremony, reports Kristen Schott for Philadelphia Magazine

To partake of the wedding glam without the financial slam, participants must be ready. 

A Bucks County wedding license takes approximately five days to obtain and relies on the USPS. So this event may be better for brides and grooms that already have their paperwork in hand (Bucks County marriage licenses, available here, are good for 60 days). 

Preregistration is a good idea, but walkups can be accommodated as time allows. 

The offer includes flowers and bouquets, linens, strings for musical accompaniment, a champagne toast and onsite dining. Couples should bring their own vows, rings and any traditional items such as glasses for stomping or brooms for jumping. 

A COVID-19 questionnaire must be completed prior to the ceremony, and health-safety guidelines will be in effect. 

More information on getting hitched in New Hope for free, is in the Philadelphia Magazine article, here
