Amy says, “We were married in a civil ceremony and now we want to have a real wedding. Can we do that?”
While you will not be able to change the date you were legally married, consider the following…
1. You could arrange for a religious ceremony. This would not constitute the legal marriage – but the religious body may issue a Certificate of Marriage recognizing the date you were joined in accordance with their religious rite.
2. You can consider treating the ceremony you are planning much like a vow renewal, with wording quite similar to a wedding.
These approaches are relatively commonplace.
