What Is the Difference Between a Marriage License and a Marriage Certificate?

It's easy to confuse marriage license and , but it is important to note that a marriage license must be obtained before the wedding, as it permits you to get married.

  1. A photo identification (valid passport, driver's license, etc.)
  2. A social security number
  3. A marriage license fee

The marriage license fee is $86.00 when it is applied for in person, but it costs $136 when applying online. You can receive a discount on your marriage license when you complete an approved premarital preparation course.
