Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and thank you for your question. For over 35 years I have answered questions just like yours. And I look forward to assisting you.
The answer to both your questions is YES though I can understand your hesitation and it may appear odd for the mother of the bride to also perform the ceremony. However, the following may also be helpful:
In Colorado there is no government licensing required for a minister to perform marriage.The minister does not need to be a Colorado resident, though he or she must be at least 18 years old. Likewise, you will be required to sign the marriage license before it is filed and recorded.
I hope this helps. Please rate my answer ok or better so that I can be paid for assisting you.
