"Do We Need Any Official Witnesses?"

The simple answer to this question is, no.

The current practice throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts uses a marriage license which does not require, and does not provide any opportunity for witnesses in addition to the officiant.

Often, couples will have a close friend ask if that person can be the couple’s “official witness” for their marriage ceremony. However, the marriage license used in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts does not provide an opportunity nor does it require additional witnesses.

Your officially licensed Justice of the Peace is the only witness you need!
