You usually have to get the licensein the state where you are getting married.  We live in New York and we are getting married in Florida.  We have to get our license from Florida.

Michigan works the same way. You have to get your license here if you want to be married here.

The only way to be sure would be to check with the state’s marriage laws (where you are having the ceremony). Each state has different marriage laws. They should have them available on your state’s website. Make sure you check into that state’s requirements too! They may require testing, counselling, additional documents that your state does not.

No. The location you get married is governed by that jurisdiction’s marriage laws. The person marrying tou must do it under that state’s authority. You need to get your license in Tennessee if that is where you want to get married.
