Magali Jaskiewicz and Jonathan George had planned to wed at their local town hall in November 2008, but he was killed just two days before the ceremony in a motorcycle accident.
Ms Jaskiewitz, 32, used a little-known section of the French civil code that allows posthumous marriages if all the formalities for the wedding were completed before one of the partners died, including the setting of a date.
She proved to officials that she and Mr George had been living together since 2004 and that they shared a bank account.
She also provided a photo of the wedding dress she had bought to wear to their wedding.
Standing alone in the aisle at the town hall, she was "married" to Mr George at a ceremony attended by 30 family members and friends in the village of Dommary-Baroncourt, in eastern France, on Saturday.
Around ten posthumous marriages are carried out each year in France, French interior ministry officials said.
