There are numerous scams related to wedding time; here are some to watch out for:
- Once your completed marriage license has been filed by your officiant, you can order the certificate off the Clark County Recorder's website at http://www.clarkcountynv.gov/Depts/recorder/Pages/OrderingMarriageCertificate.aspx That is all you need, but starting a week or so after filing, you're going to start to get 'official-looking' letters claiming to offer expedited license service, printing service, whatever the case may be. They're all going to charge you several times more to do the same thing; ignore them.
- Ensure that your family (on both sides) do not put a wedding date announcement in your, or their, local newspaper. Preferably no announcement at all, but if they must, don't include the date. The reason for this is criminals have been known to monitor papers for wedding date announcements because, unless you're getting married at your house, there's a fairly good chance you won't be home on wedding day, leaving your house vulnerable. How often does this actually happen, probably very rarely, but how often does being paranoid about personal security harm you, also probably very rarely, so never hurts to be cautious.
