I’m getting married August 18 of this year and we are going on a NCL cruise on September 1st, exactly two weeks after the wedding. Becuase I will only be 20, we have to bring our marriage license so my husband can be my “guardian.”
Anyone that is already married know how long it takes for the marriage license to come in? Can we bring it straight to the court house to speed things up? Will be have to get legally married a month before just to be safe?

We got a display marriage license on the night of the rehearsal dinner from the priest. I would think that would work?
I’m in VA and it took over a month to get my marriage license. I had to wait 2 weeks and then I had to send off for it.

We got married in Maine on September 24th. We didn’t get our marriage license until late October (so almost 1 month later).
However, the town office processing our marriage license had just undergone a new software update so they were a bit behind.
Our officiant took the license in the first business day after we got married so we couldn’t have gotten it to them much quicker.

I would recommend calling the county courthouse. It can really depend upon how big of a courthouse it is. It only took us 5 minutes to get ours at the courthouse.
