Per Wisconsin State Statute 765.17, a letter of sponsorship is required for a non-Wisconsin resident clergy who is performing a marriage ceremony in the state. That Sponsorship letter should:

  • be addressed "to Whom it May Concern". It must be dated and contain the name and signature of the in-state sponsoring officiant.
  • name the bride and groom
  • state the date of the ceremony
  • specify that the sponsor is an authorized marriage officiant in Wisconsin
  • specify that the sponsor knows of the out of state officiant
