Under the Marriage Act 1961 there are sure commitments that you, as a couple expecting to get hitched, must meet before a wedding function being solemnized.

Both sides are required to give a base one month. There are a few exemptions; for example if an accomplice is abroad or interstate and one and only can sign a month prior to the big day that is adequate. Nonetheless, if these conditions don’t exist then both sides are required to sign one month prior.
