A colloquial phrase that refers to the solemnization or formalization of a marriage.

In a number of states there must be a celebration of a marriage through some type of official government ceremony before a marriage will be legally recognized.

Some statutes provide that every justice of the peace of a particular state, every minister, and every religious society be empowered to solemnize marriage. The type of celebration required varies according to state law and religious custom.
