"Almost time to say 'I do'", Biles captioned the post, with Owens, 27, responding in the comments, "Soon." The couple, who have yet to announce the date of their planned wedding, chose to remain casual when they received the certificate. One full-body shot taken outside the county offices and uploaded on Biles' Instagram Story shows the couple laughing and posing while proudly holding up the license.

Biles wore a pair of light-colored torn jeans and a gray sweater in the photo, and her hair was pulled back. Owens wore his own ripped jeans, a black T-shirt, and a pair of black running shoes.
Biles also revealed that the couple celebrated with cocktails immediately after receiving the license. Over an image of the beverages, the gymnast commented on her Instagram Story, "Post marriage license things." She played a song with the lyrics "Girl, let's just get married" over the footage. "I just wanna get married."
As the big day approaches, the couple has been making the most of every opportunity to celebrate with their loved ones. Last week, Biles posted many photographs from her heavenly-themed wedding shower at The Juliana in Houston Heights with family and friends on her Instagram Stories.
On one of her Instagram posts, she also released a series of images of her wedding party dressed in powder blue gowns with the remark, "On Cloud 9 BRIDAL SHOWER, feeling so loved & blessed."
Earlier this year, the bride-to-be attended a "boujee" bachelorette party in Belize and wore a pair of light-wash trousers with the moniker "Mrs Owens" printed across the back pockets. "Thanks @alaiabelize for hosting the most epic bachelorette we had, TIME!!!!!!! It was truly unbelizeable," Biles captioned an Instagram reel of the celebratory bash.
Biles and Owens announced their engagement in a series of Instagram photographs in February, after two years of dating. The NFL athlete proposed under a gazebo in Houston, Texas, with an oval-cut diamond ring with a diamond-encrusted band fashioned by jeweler ZoFrost.
"THE EASIEST YES," Biles captioned the slideshow. "I can't wait to spend forever & ever with you, you're everything I dreamed of and more! let's get married FIANCÉ 💍🥺🥲🤎 @jowens_3."
