Marriage in Wyoming

So, you've decided to get married and have your wedding in Wyoming. You have already decided up on a dress, and the reception is all sorted. You have your Best Man and the Maid of Honor, and now it's time to get your marriage license!

Getting your Marriage License:

First of all, you must get you and your Groom together, along with either the Best Man or the Maid of Honor, or someone else that knows both of you, and get yourself along to the County Clerk's office. You also need to make sure you have $25 cash in your purse to pay for the application of the marriage license as well as a couple of important documents. Firstly, if you've been married before, you need to show proof that you are no longer married. You will also be expected to provide a valid drivers license, a certified birth certificate and also a scrap of paper with a few of your parents details, such as their names and addresses.

Having your Marriage License:

So, you've applied and it's all come through, you have your marriage license! Now, for the important stuff. This marriage license doesn't have an expiry date so you can use it whenever you want, just in case there are a few last minute glitches and you need to change the date of your wedding. However, this marriage license means that you can only get married within the state of Wyoming, so you cannot change the location to another state. However, once you are married, by a licensed or ordained minister of the gospel, you must request a marriage certificate for yourself, as well as the minister sending one off to the county clerk to get it validated and to say that you are married.

Last Minute Things to Know:

You should have no problems getting married in the State of Wyoming, as long as you have done the above things. Remember that you can not get married if you under the age of 16 unless you have a court order, and if you are under 18, you must have parental consent. You cannot marry your cousin, or someone of the same sex. Marriages by proxy and common law marriages are also not permitted in Wyoming.
