Marriage License Information

Marriage licenses must be obtained and presented to the wedding minister / marriage officiant prior to the beginning of your wedding ceremony. Marriage licenses are obtained from the county court clerks office.

A license obtained in any Oklahoma County will be valid for marriage in all Oklahoma Counties. An example would be if Jane and John live in Oklahoma County but wish to be married at a special location in Tulsa County. This couple could obtain their marriage license in their home county and it would be valid for their ceremony in Tulsa County or any other county in Oklahoma. There would be no need to visit Tulsa County in advance of their wedding day.

Your County Court Clerk will be able to inform you if they require that the marriage license be returned in a shorter time-frame. Your Oklahoma Marriage license will require the signature of two witnesses, the bride, the groom and the minister or officiant who performs your wedding ceremony. The bride should sign the marriage license with her name as she will be known going forward. This means that the bride will sign the license with her first, middle and new last name if she chooses to take the grooms last name as her own. The groom will also sign the marriage license with his full legal name, first, middle and last, no nicknames or abbreviations.
