I'mnot sure if anyone can answer that,I have heard greatly differing time frames,from a month to six months.
Maybe someone who has recently married can answer better.
However long,it's exciting to think you will be setting a date and getting married.

Thanks im very excitied butstressing over the rings obviously i have to purchase them but im wondering if they want a reciept for his ring i know some facilties ask for them. i guess $150 is the max that can be spent on inmates? He sent a letter with the drawing of his ring size lol so hopefully i can match it to an actual ring. its weird cause since for now im buying my own ring im not sure how much i should spend on myself??? something little just to signify the marriage or something on the expensive side?? Im prolly thinkin too much into it but its my first marriage, his second and im nervous!!

I think perhaps go on the less expensive side with an engagement type ring and ask that when he is working and a free man,he put a wedding ring on your finger.
You both can also do a family ceremony after he is released.
I doubt they will ask for proof of cost as long as the ring is simple.
It has to be in order to be approved.Plain band only I believe,for him anyway.
There are somenice titanium mens rings on e-bay and they are inexpensive but sturdy.

my hubby sent me the marriage request form back in october 2012 i think and then we got approved by early december and we are getting married in 7 days now so for us it seemed super fast. It just sucks that they assign you a wedding date, they dont give you options...they only gave me a 17 day notice so it was alot of last minute pplanning for hotel reservation and asking for days off from work and getting his wedding band and figuring out what to wear and all that stuff. But yeah i made it work somehow

yeah just make sure you and your man stay on top of things...my hubby was writing the marriage coordinator and counselor every week and i was also calling every week...i think they got fed up with us so they processed it fast lol .... When they ask you to send in your birth certificate make sure its the real one, not a copy...they will send it back to you once everything is done...anyways i will be getting married on saturday...2 days! Ahhh! Im so nervous and excited. Im ki9nda bukmmed because since they only gave me a 17 day notice, i didnt have much time to plan and didnt have much money to shop for something nice to wear so we will see what they let me in wearing lol im taking a few options. Ive heard that you can take a picture kissing your hubby so im excited about that one since usually theyre really strict. Neither one of our family members will be able to attend our lil ceremony so it sux but nothing will take away our happiness on our special day. I was told to check in before 9am so i hope traffic isnt too bad because of the rain in la. But other than that i dont have much info on whats really gonna go down...i will be sure to ask alot of questions and after i come back on sunday i will update you on everything. Wish me luck!

The marriage REQUEST is just one form...then once it gets approved, he will send you the marriage certificate & license application...after that is sent in with the 2 money orders, you will get assigned a wedding date which HAS TO be within 3 months of the time they receive yur marriage certificate & license application. They gave me mine within a month of turning it in so it was fast.
