So today, our team has put together everything you need to know about getting married in Florida.
Florida Marriage License
According to StateofFlorida.com, you can apply for your marriage license at any county clerk’s office and get married in any county in Florida, regardless of where you obtained your license. You’ll need to bring your picture ID such as a driver’s license, state ID card, or valid passport, and both parties will need their Social Security numbers. There is a $93.50 fee but you can save $32.50 if you complete a licensed Florida pre-marital course. Your marriage license will expire in 60 days, so you must have the ceremony within that time period. And, in Florida, there is a 3-day waiting period after issuance of the license before you can get married.
