Getting a marriage license may not be the most fun part of wedding planning, but it is a must and you cannot forget about it! Below are some answers to questions that might come up:

Where can you get a marriage license?
The easiest place would be the county clerks office. If you plan to get married out of the state you live in then you will need to plan ahead to stop by the clerks’ office in the state that you will be married in.

What ID is needed?
A birth certificate, or some sort of citizenship identification like a passport, photo ID, (proof of divorce if previously married), and proof of consent by a parent if you are under 18.

How much does a marriage license cost?
Depending on where you live it can be anywhere from $35 to $115. You can check to see what it will cost in your state.

Is there a waiting period for the license?
This also depends on the state you live in; if you follow this link it will take you to a list of states and their waiting periods:

Make sure the license is dropped off at the same place you got it at after the bride, groom, officiant, and one or two witnesses sign it.
