Who Filled Out a NYC Marriage License in the 1920s #usa #records

Who filled out a marriage license in New York City in the 1920s? I am asking because I just obtained marriage licenses for two of my grandfather's brothers. For groom's mother, there are the following entries:

Mollie Bienenstock (1925) - correct
Margaret Bienstock (1924)

I know lots of mistakes were made on census forms, and other documents, but in this case I would have thought it would have been the groom, or someone with the
groom watching. In both cases they have the grooms' signature. It's not a big deal, but quite interesting, that they couldn't get their mother's name straight.
