Florida Requirenments

On your wedding day the only required and typically the least expensive professional you’ll hire is your officiate. It’s common for most couples want to know, “What’s the fee?” so that is why this is listed on my home page.  Please see “Included in Cost for Officiate” and additional details and requirements, below.

Required –  On your wedding day you must bring your marriage license and ID’s to your officiate.  For anyone to marry you, you must have a FL Marriage License.  You are responsible for obtaining your Florida marriage license.

To obtain your Florida marriage license, both you and your fiancé must go to any FL Clerk of Court’s office, together, with ID.  The Clerk of Court charges every couple the same fees to obtain their marriage license – you have to have one; without this license you cannot be legally married.  Contact your FL Clerk of Court for their fees and hours.  

FL residents (only) have a three (3) day waiting period after they obtain their license. The date you may marry on or after is clearly written on your marriage license; check the date!  Your license is good for 60 days from date of purchase. You may use your FL marriage license to marry anywhere in Florida, regardless of which FL county you received it from.  No blood test is necessary.
