To commemorate the proud institution of marriage, the Texas Legislature has authorized the creation of an "heirloom" wedding anniversary certificate. This certificate may be customized to recognize a couple's wedding anniversary - from the first to the one hundredth. This parchment-like certificate is suitable for framing. It bears the signatures of the Governor of Texas and Texas State Registrar with a cost of $60.00 per certificate. The certificate may be purchased by anyone, including the couple, their children, grandchildren, other relatives, or friends.
This is not a legal certificate of marriage. And it does not establish and may not be used to establish a marriage relationship. A legal certificate of marriage can only be obtained from the county clerk's office in which the marriage license was purchased and filed.
