Getting your License

Groom and Bride outfits waiting to be worn

While the idea of running off to elope is very romantic, the truth is we can only be a little bit spontaneous here in Washington.  

Washington State has a mandatory 3-day waiting period which can not be waived.  This means you and your co-eloper need to apply for your marriage license at least 3 days before you are allowed to wed. And no more than 60 days before your wedding day.

Please visit the Pierce County website on marriage licenses for more details.
