    Hi all,
    Finally gave notice today went through all questions and ID and confirmed date which was all great and then we got given a form to bring back to collect notice on 1/10/14 so we can give to cathedral :) Now our wedding date is 11/07/2015 and on the form we have to take back it says our wedding is on Sept 11th 2015 now I have rung and they said they would speak to the lady and she should call back tomorrow but it doesn't matter if it says wrong date as all that means is Sept 11th 2015 will be latest our notice can be used for us to get married .
    Now I am a worrier and I know I'm just panicking but has this ever happened to anyone else ?

    I was a bit lost there but then I recall from mine which the registrar explained - when you give notice it's valid for a year, so if for any reason you didn't get married on 11/07 you would be able to any time up til 11/09 with that notice - if it was postponed (as an example) after that date, you would have to give notice and pay again. However tht also means you can actually get married from 11/09/2014! Lol. Hope that helps x

    As April said above, you have a timescale. As long as your registrar has the right date for the actual booking. The main reason for giving notice, is for them to check your details, and to provide you with an authority to marry

    Troop, that's why I'm giving notice a bit later so if the worse happened we have 3 months to try and reorganise without having to refuge notice.

    I'm feeling a bit blonde, what is giving notice? Is it something everyone has to do? We've met with a vicar after booking our wedding and went through details of family etc but no ones told us we have to give notice. Have I missed something?

    Normally the vicar would of mentioned it when giving in details as that's how we found out and the priest told us where to go and costs. It also depends on your religion if you check out direct gov you will see if you need to :)

    ErinV: usually if you're Anglican you don't need to give notice, so this could be why it wasn't mentioned. I'd probably check with your vicar to be sure.
