Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Dear Customer, thank you for choosing Just Answer. There is nothing that prevents you from having a wedding ceremony.
The state does not have any interest or control over these ceremonies with the exception that you must have one to become legally married. As you note, you may not become legally married until you have received your divorce decree. (At which time you will need to perform a second wedding ceremony to fulfill the requirements for marriage in the state of Ohio: https://www.ohiobar.org/ForPublic/Resources/LawFactsPamphlets/Pages/LawFactsPamphlet-35.aspx)
