Idk specifically about Florida, but at least in Michigan you just have to get it within a month of the date you get married.  

Marriage license is valid for 60 days after issuance. You must perform the ceremony of marriage before this 60 days has expired. Blood Tests are not required. There is a 3-day waiting period after issuance of the license before you can get married, unless you have completed the Florida pre-marital course, in which case the waiting period is waived. Florida Marriage Statutes can be found here: http://www.leg.state.fl.us/statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&URL=0700-0799/0741/0741.html

@everyheart:  I’d believe the county clerk over your sister- it’s his job. To be safe, you might want to get it sooner rather than later, but check how long it is valid (as PP said, usually 60 days)

We got married in Florida in April. When you go to the Clerk of Courts you will receive your license. However, if you are a florida resident that did not do marriage counseling there is a 3 day waiting period. In addition, you must get married within 60 days of receiving the marrage license. On the marriage license they will write a time frame stating when the marriage license is valid. Hope this helps!
