This beautiful antique marriage certificate comes from a circa 1880s book. It’s actually a sample of a marriage certificate. I love that it’s blank and can be customized so that you can use it as you like! I’ve included a high resolution printable for you so that you can download it and print it out. I also think each individual graphic on the page, could be used for different purposes, so I split out the word “Marriage” and the oval floral frame. They are both so lovely!

    THANKS! :)

  25. When we got married almost 12 years ago, our marriage certificate met a tragic accident of spilled water in the back of my MILs car while we honeymooned.
    I’ve never gotten over that.
    Now I can print and frame this, and I’m oh-so-grateful! THANK YOU! ;)

  26. Love this! Are they editable? I need one for renewing our vows. We’re celebrating our 40th anniversary in July.

  27. So, am I the only one that can’t figure out how to fill this in? I am having problems with the bottom. Is the first blank the time? Second the state? The third also the State? I’m pretty sure I have 4 (the date) and 5 the month correct. I am missing something?

  28. So fantastic & totally fit our theme we were working with! Thank you for sharing! I had to make sure to pass it on (

  29. I do nnot even know the way I ended up here, but I assumed this
    publish used to be good. I do not know who you are but
    definitely you’re going to a famous blogger for those who
    aren’t already. Cheers!

  30. What a beautiful frame. Thanks.
