For those getting married in Pennsylvania, I know that you can obtain your marriage license in any county in Pennsylvania, even if you are getting married in a different county/city in PA.
My finace and I are getting down to the wire (less than 3 weeks to go) and we need to get our marriage license, but we were hoping not to have to take off work to travel to PA and get our marriage license (most of the offices are only open M-F, 8-4:30).
Does anyone know of any counties that issue marriage licenses on Saturdays?

I unfortunately don’t know of any counties that issue marriage licenses on Saturdays. The one thing I did want to tell you is that you have to hold your marriage license for 3 days prior to getting married, so just wanted to be sure you knew that. You unfortunately can’t go a day or two before your weddiing…so just keep that in mind!

Since it is a state/govt office, 99.9% gaurantee it is only open M-F. It does not take that long and unfortunately it is something you probably need to take a little bit of time for.

I know for IN (and GA and NC where two of my friends recently got married) you have to go to city hall / some other government run building to get a marriage license. Nothing government run that I’ve ever seen is open in Saturdays so I’m guessing you’re out of luck. I had to take off last Friday and went back to IN this past weekend so I could get my marriage license last Friday – the things you have to do when you choose to get married out of state!

Thanks for the input ladies. It does seem like we will have to take at least half a day from work to get it done, but I’m still searching. I did find one place open on Saturdays.
Lackawanna County (Scranton area) has one Saturday a month where they are open 9:30-3:30 to issue marriage licenses. Unfortunately we missed the June date, and the July date is too late for us, but maybe this will help someone else.
