You must inform the state at least three months before your wedding. no harm in doing it now - though your appointment with the registrar won't be for a while. I did mine a year ago and look at my ticker!

You have to notify the state of your marriage at least 3 months before your marriage so you can go about doing that now, you need to make an appointment with the registrar this link should help you http://www.groireland.ie/getting_married.htm also this site will help you http://www.gettingmarried.ie/pages/index.php?nd=16

Note girls that havnt organised this yet, the registrar in my area offaly, said that its actually best to give 6months notice as alot do it at last min and if your county cant do it you may have to go to the next nearest county O:| O:| But im soo greatful that i checked this out today :o)ll :o)ll

You are still within the 3 month mark just about Ring them first thing tomorrow I say they will try and fit you in. You might have to go to a different county. But I am sure they would have left some time set aside for people in your case. I wouldn't worry about it but definitely ring you local office tomorrow
