A Note to Couples Contemplating a Vermont Wedding,
Hopefully the following information will answer most of your questions about marriages in Vermont. Effective July 1, 2016 the fee for a marriage license will increase to $60.00 for the license. The fee for a certified copy after the ceremony will remain $10.00. There are no witnesses, waiting period or blood test required.
An appointment is not necessary in order to come into the office to obtain your license but it is advisable to make an appointment with the Justice of the Peace to perform your ceremony.
There is a one-page worksheet you will need to complete in order to obtain your marriage license. You do not necessarily need to complete the form in advance. You may obtain one from the clerk and complete it in the clerk's office. It will take you approx. ½ hour in our office to obtain your license. You may then have your ceremony on the same day, if you wish.
Our office hours are Monday-Friday, 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM.
Please feel free to contact our office if you need further information and enjoy your visit to Vermont!
