Pretty sure it is the same there as it is in any state. Just walk into the county clerk’s office. Their website should tell you what to bring outside of money and identification. They make you hold up your right hand, swear that you are who you say you are, and voila!

This page on theknot.com has info for the different areas in Tennessee. http://www.theknot.com/wp_mlresults.html?market=190&keyword=TENNESSEE Like all the other states (I’m assuming), you have to apply in person. But it doesn’t look like there is any waiting period, so even if you’re going to be there only a day ahead of time, you can still get it done (provided you allow time for it amidst all the other craziness!). And since your wedding is in less than a month, you can do it anytime from now un til then, since it looks like it has to be done no more than 30 days prior to the wedding date.

KissingLillith, make sure that wherever you get your marriage license, the marriage license is valid in the state you actually get married in. A marriage license doesn’t mean you’re married, it just means that you can get married, and in CA you must within 90 days or else the license expires and you need to get a new one. Also I know that in CA a marriage license from any county is valid throughout the state; however I do not know whether it would be valid in TN. If you go to the county clerk’s office (to find where that is, just google the name of the county and poke around on the county website) to get your marriage license be sure to ask if the license is valid out of state. If it’s not, you may need to wait to get your marriage license until you go to TN.

I live in TN, so maybe I can be of some help. You need to go to any county clerk’s office in the state of TN within 30 days of the wedding. There’s no waiting period, so you can go the day before the wedding if you need to. There’s no blood tests or anything like that. The license is good anywhere in TN. Also, some counties will waive the extra $60 they tacked on a few years ago if you live out of state, so I suggest doing some research and finding a county that will do that so it will be around $30-$40 instead of $90-$100.
