How far in advance are you getting your marriage license?
In our province they are valid for 3 months from the date of issue, so we could get it as early as this Saturday. I mentioned it to my fiance and he said we should get it next week. So since he’s so excited and I like to be super organized I think we might end up getting it within the next few weeks. It’s always nice to check something else off the list!

@orchidaloha: I got mine the week before which was cutting it. We had planned to get it two weeks before but things kept on coming up. I say that the earlier the better now!

our license was valid for 90 days also, but we didn’t get ours until about month before we got married

I got mine on Monday, our wedding is in 24 days. I think they are good for 60 days here in Oregon. I filled out all the information online so all I had to do was go in, pay, show ID and we got the paperwork. There is also a 3 day waiting period before it can be used, so technically we could get married today.

Ours was valid for a month after issuance and we had five days to register the marriage after it happened.
ETA: We got ours a week before we got married.

- Wedding: August 2013 - Rocky Mountains USA
For some reason my guy doesn’t want to get ours until the week of – so it’s more exciting, I guess? Dunno. But we’ll do it the Tuesday before our wedding. (And yes, I checked and you can use it immediately in our state if need be – no waiting period.)

You can get it up to 60 days before the wedding in VA, so we’ll probably go sometime next month!

I am from Northeast PA. In our county, the license is valid for 60 dates from the date of issue. Our wedding isn’t until next May but we will probably get it sometime in April of next year.

We got ours about two weeks out because I didn’t want to risk losing it!

In MN they’re good for 6 months, so we’re planning on getting ours when we’re in town for Thanksgiving. It’s the only time before the wedding that we’ll both be in the Twin Cities (we live out of state), so we’re just going to go ahead and get it done way ahead of time, lol.

Ours was good for 90 days. We got it a month before.
The application specifically said that there were no refunds once it was issued, so we made sure to get all the dates and timing right so that we wouldn’t lose the $140 fee.
