Now the plan is to be debated at a council meeting.
Clr Linda Wild, chairman of Kirklees Council's Huddersfield area committee, invited people to comment on the suggestion.
She said so far the response had been positive.
She felt the register office surroundings were unattractive and too small for wedding parties which gathered for photographs after ceremonies.
And it was not always suitable when people were coming to register a death to pass a wedding party in the foyer.
"Both men and women have written, including some who are going to get married at the register office and some who have got married there.
"All seem in favour of a move," she said.
"People can have their weddings at the town hall now but because it is classed as an alternative venue, they have to pay more for the registrar to come and for the room hire.
"But my idea is if normal civil ceremonies were held there as a matter of course there wouldn't be that additional cost.
"And I think it makes it more of an occasion if the wedding is held at the town hall."
She also wants to dedicate a special area of Greenhead Park which could be booked for wedding photographs.
She said she has spoken to cultural services chief Jonathan Drake about the proposal and will discuss it further at the next Huddersfield area committee meeting on July 29.
