Marriage License Info

You'll need a license to get legally married in Colorado. 

Here's what you need to know:

 

#1: Marriage Licenses are valid anywhere in Colorado. The license must be returned to the same County Clerk that issued it - but the wedding can take place anywhere in the state. 

#2: The license cost is $30.

#3: Licenses are valid for 35 days before your ceremony. I know you're excited - but don't get it too early.

 

#4: You can fill out the application online to save some time. You'll still need to show up in person to sign and show ID - but every little bit helps, right? Check the links below for info on the most popular County Clerks.

#5: If you're coming from another state, you'll need a Colorado license. Do consider this when planning your trip: be sure to make an appointment for your license before the ceremony. Most County Clerks are open by appointment: M-F 8-4:30. Find links below for specific clerks.

#6: Marriages legal in Colorado are recognized in all 50 states. My own credentials are a combination of online and brick-and-mortar churches to make certain that all legal liabilities are considered.

 

#7: Just to be super clear: I cannot get a marriage license on your behalf. You will need to complete your own application and show several forms of ID.
