Getting Your Marriage License
ID Requirements: In Texas, you will need one valid form of ID such as driver’s license, certified copy of your birth certificate, U.S. Passport, military ID, and your Social Security number.
Residency Requirements: Neither one of you have to be a resident of Texas.
Premarital Education: Is not required in the state of Texas.
Waiting Period in Texas: There is a 72 hours (3 days) waiting period in Texas. This can be waived for active duty military with your military ID.
Expiration Period: Do not obtain the license more than 90 days before the wedding. The license will expire on day 91 of the issuance. I recommend getting it 2-3 weeks before the ceremony.
Blood Test: Not required in the State of Texas.
Fee: Approx. $72.00 fees (price may vary by county)
Your license is good in any county in Texas but can only be used in Texas.
No witnesses are required at the wedding in Texas.
Please read the guidelines for your particular county for all questions answers.
A: Many Weddings are planned up to a year in advance. Many Weddings are planned in a few months or a few weeks, while others are only a couple of days. I suggest that as soon as you and your fiancée have chosen a date, that would be the time to book the wedding officiant
A: As long as there is room in the schedule, last-minute requests are fine. There are often circumstances that require last-minute planning with your wedding officiant.
A: Absolutely. Yes. I am of non-denominational Christian faith wedding officiant, but I am more than happy to join anyone that wants to celebrate their love by getting married! It's your day. We can customize the ceremony in any way you like. I’m here to help!
A: Someone who is a legally authorized wedding officiant will preside over/perform a couple’s wedding ceremony. Making sure you are legally married!
A: Modern non denominational minister/civil officiant. “Officiants” are known and called by many different names: wedding officiant, wedding minister, wedding officiator, marriage officiator, marriage minister, marriage officiant, marriage official, wedding clergy, marriage clergy, wedding celebrant, and reverend.
A: As a wedding officiant I serve every type of couple from purely civil (get hitched quick) to religious full all out church ceremonies, themed and everything in between. Oh, and I specialize in renewal of vows.
A: Yes. In the State of Texas an Ordained Clergy, Wedding Officiant Member, Minister, Priest, Rabbi, Reverend Etc. who are authorized by their church can legally marry you. (Marriage in Texas is governed by Chapter 2 of Title 1 of Texas’ Family Code. Sec. 2.202.)
I have been legal since 2015.
Yes! Once you book your date we will set up a consultation in person if possible. At that time we will seal the deal and you will be further known as " Bride & Groom, and I as your wedding officiant . If we must connect via video, I will email the agreement contract to you and we will be secure. Then the journey begins!
A: Yes, I do traditional and custom vows. Keep in mind I also assist the bride & groom with writing vows, poetry, and offering a unique professional wedding song you are free to use as part of my wedding services.
A: I do not ever include a “Tip” or Gratuity” in my ceremony services as some may do. Offering a “Tip” or “Gratuity” for job well done is at your complete discretion. The BEST tip is a great review and a referral as your awesome wedding officiant or Day of Coordinator.
A: I understand life sometimes gets in the way and changes must be made. I will make every effort to work with your schedule. With that said, once the deposit and/or full payments are received for wedding officiant services, or 'Day of Coordinator' it is non-refundable. If it is a postponement, I do not charge a rebooking fee; all other monies will be applied to the new date.
I will always work with you!
