my "perfect" wedding venue may not be so perfect afterall :( help?? *piog*

i'm glad i decided to start planning my wedding early (it's not for another 16 months), because i just received the application form to my "perfect" wedding venue. or, at least, i thought it was perfect... but now i'm wondering if it'll be too much hassle. i never took into consideration that my venue, although only 45 minutes from my house, is in a different state (i'm in pa and the venue is in ny). on the application it says that all weddings must be sanctioned by the state of ny. so how do i go about doing this? and would this mean that i'd have to get 2 marriage licenses? one for pa and one for ny? or would i have to take my pa marriage license to a ny courthouse?

also, the form states that i need to send in a copy of insurance, indemnifying this venue for 1 MILLION DOLLARS! ok, i have NEVER heard of such a thing... anyone have ANY idea? this is starting to sound like more work than it's worth. all i wanted was a really nice outdoor wedding. i'm sure i can find a place just as good that isn't as confusing.

If you get married in NY it should stil lbe honored in PA... People get married all the time then move to another state later and they are still considered husband and wife. So I don't see where the issue is... I would check on it though to make sure.

Never heard anything like this before. Im getting married at a local park and its only a $350 fee for the day and we have to clean up afterwards.

i haven't heard of the insurance thing... I would have thought any venue like that would already have an ins. policy.... weird! As for the license... I think you only need to have it for the state you are getting married in. I'm in Nevada, and that's how it works here. Anyone wanting to get married here, no matter where they live, has to have a nevada marriage license and that's it.

i have a feeling we're going to be keeping it local now, too. though i shouldn't complain. we live about 15 minutes from the beach... so we'll probably have it there.
