Mine was mailed. and It took about 2 weeks. It was here by the time we got back from our honeymoon. Give it another week before you get worried.

Mine was also mailed and was in our mailbox when we returned from our honeymoon (4 weeks after marriage).  We were told it takes about 3 weeks.

We got ours as soon as we dropped off the signed license from our officiant.  No waiting.  Gave them the signed copy, and 10 minutes later, they handed us the certified copies to use for legal purposes.

It depends on your location. We had to order ours- they didn’t just send it automatically.

We had to pick up at the courthouse or order it online and have it mailed but it would take a few weeks. I highly doubt they are just going to send it to you.

We got married in Hawaii and they told us it would be a month before we got it in the mail – in only took 2 weeks.  They told us we would only had to go online to order additional copies.

weatherbug:  I went to go get mine. I got married in Cedar Grove. Even though it was an hour from my house it was easier. I don’t remember them saying they would mail it.

weatherbug:  I was married in NY on Sept 14, 2013 – my officiant mailed out the signed license that we are now married on Sept 16 and I received my marriage certificate mid October 16 2013 – only reason I know exact date I received it was bc I posted a picture on Instagram that I am officially “Mrs P” Lol

I had to pay for mine, and it came less than a month after. (I’m in Canada though)
