You may have to be flexible on this to achieve what you want: getting married!

Otherwise, we are back to square one, which I think is what you actually asked in the first place (sorry: we trying to be helpful. Honest!)... how to do both in India as non residents.

Does this particular wedding date have something to do with astrological mumbo-jumbo?

The county in which I live in Colorado allows individuals to solemnize their own marriage so nothing would really be necessary but we already have everything booked in India. It's not really a matter of if it can be done or not I was just trying to see if there was a way to keep the dates correct. We're unable to do the paperwork until we return because my fiance is out of the state until we head to India.
Not to be pedantic. But....

Forget online information available for the moment-
  • Go to the nearest gurudwara in Colorado - There are a few I am sure, given a good % of sikh population of late... Ask the granthi if he can do the ceremony and what information he needs from both of you. And would he sign a marriage certificate against the issued marriage licence.
  • Ask your relatives to do the same in pindlandia.
  • Ask your relatives to go talk to Anand Karaj registrar about his requirements from the gurudwara !

The last point is important. In fact very important. It is procedural to prevent innocent kudis (girls) from being duped by vilayati
(people from foreign lands, typically NRIs)

Have a Plan B.

Different country, different circumstances, different rules. We married in a temple in India (Hindu Marriage Act) and that date is our wedding date. The necessary registration of the temple marriage in Kerala was a couple of days later.
In Germany, we had the marriage registered, which means it was checked if everything was correct and we got a certificate about our Indian marriage with the correct date. We had to explain that the actual marriage was in the temple and at that day and that the registration was just necessary paperwork.

Nope, I just wanted to have the date registered in the state as the date of the actual ceremony. The date is arbitrary, we just picked one based on when we could make it to India and everyone would be available.

Thanks for the info. I think we're just going to do the ceremony in India and then sign the paperwork after. I did find out that I can go get the marriage license ahead of time and then submit it with only our signatures on the marriage certificate after we get back.

Luckily both of us US citizens so it's not really a matter of having to have it registered in India or anything. It was really a preference that I wanted it to be registered for the date of the actual ceremony

Hi Its about Marriage certificate spelling error

My friend is a green card holder got married to India citizen on 1st June and went back, they registered and got Marriage certificate, but after reaching they realised there was an error in their M certificate ( both of their parent mother's name is not correct )


Will it create problem in future if they don't correct parents name spelling error. or should I ask to update the certificate and get new one

Congratulations !

No, the mother's name is not a definitive document of proof in a Marriage certificate. Yours and the spouses is.
