Today I learned that it that it is easier to setup an LLC in DC than get a marriage license. All it takes it is residency, $300, an internet connection, and a dream. It is easier to get a marriage license than it is get a one day liquor license for your wedding. For the marriage license all you need is the name of an officiant and the two people getting married, their IDs, a trip to the courthouse and $45. To get a liquor license for one day for your event you need to notarize a form, get a clearance from the police in person, have the layout of the venue, a certificate of occupancy from said venue, and a letter from the venue who likely require insurance, and $300.
