You’re Engaged, Now What?

Hope you find the resources below helpful in preparing for your big day.

Legal Resources

In general, this is what will be required to obtain a marriage license; however, each county may have their own specific requirements.  Minimally prepare to have the following:

  • You will need photo identification, such as your driver’s license.
  • If you are 25 years or younger, you may be asked to show a certified copy of your birth certificate.
  • You will also need to provide Social Security numbers.
  • If you have been divorced, a certified copy of your divorce decree is required.
  • If widowed, bring in a copy of your spouse’s death certificate.

Once I perform your marriage, I will file your marriage license with the town hall or city hall. This is done in person, or through certified mail.  You may obtain an official copy of your marriage license once it is filed through the town or city hall, or by contacting
