As you prepare to walk down the aisle with style, there are a few key details to remember. Before your big day arrives, you will need to apply for a marriage license. Your marriage license is the document that makes your union legal…so it is rather important.

Depending on the county you are getting married in (not the county you live in, if it’s different) there are a series of questions you need answer before applying for your marriage license. These include who has to be present at the filing, the time window your license is active for, any legal documents that are required, any medical or blood test results that are required, the fee for the marriage license, the payment methods accepted (you would be surprised) and which office to file at.
