Differences between Events of the Hindu Marriage Act and Special Marriage Act?

Hindu Marriage Act:

While applying for registration under the Hindu Marriage Act, the SDM will first verify the documents on the date of appointment. Therefore, both parties should be present on the appointment date along with two witnesses. After completing all the documentation and other formalities, the marriage certificate will be issued within a few days. 

Special Marriage Act:

Both the bride and groom needed to be present at the registrar’s office on the date of appointment, but before this, the couple needs to submit the documents for issuance of public notice in order to invite objections. The notice of the wedding should also be displayed on the notice board of SDM’s office and the copy of the same should be sent to the address of both parties (bride and groom).

Authorities will wait for 30 days for any objection and registration will take place after one month in the registrar’s office.
