On top of you wedding planning to-do list?  Have your venue, caterer and DJ lined up?  Kudos!  As you plan your big day, it is important to remember the legal components of your marriage.  Filing for your marriage license is an important to-do that can be left to the last minute.

It is vital to understand the marriage license filing process and timeline in the county you plan to marry in.  Each county has specific deadlines and requirements, so do not rely on advice from friends who married in different counties.  You will need to research if both you and your fiance need to file for the license in person, how many days prior to your wedding you should file, how long your marriage license is good for, if there is an age requirement, what the fee is and if any blood test results or legal documents need to be presented when you file.

MarriageLicenseNow is an online guide designed to simplify marriage license research for engaged couples across the United States!  No more confusion and frustration as you try to figure out your county’s marriage license requirements.  You simply select your state and county on MarriageLicenseNow and will instantly be able to view detailed information on exactly what you need to do and bring to file for your marriage license.  Added perk: you can check the chat boards to see what brides in your county are saying about the filing process.  Everything from the best clerk to visit to where to park!
