For couples who are simply seeking to have their marriage made legal and are not interested in a more elaborate affair, our “Express Marriage” License Signing Service is the perfect fit. At $249 ($349 for weeknights after 3pm, weekends and holidays), it is a quick, convenient, and inexpensive way to “make it official.”
Often, we meet couples who have already been together for many years and have simply been waiting for the right time to turn their union of the heart into an official legal commitment. When they go to the courthouse, assuming that without a ceremony this will be a simple process, they are often shocked to find out that there is actually a waiting list of a few weeks or more to have a legal ceremony performed by a court official.
Here is where we are able to help. Available with or without our DC Certified Copy Courier Service, one of our authorized, registered officiants can be hired to perform a legal marriage license signing in Washington, DC. We are required by law to ask you a few simple questions, such as, “Do you come here of your own free will and do you chose to marry this person today?” before making things official. We then sign your license (no witnesses required) and afterwards, we will take care of filing your completed license with the District of Columbia. You will get a copy of your license to keep and there are three options for obtaining certified copies after the wedding, with the most popular being our DC Certified Copy Courier Service.
Most people travelling in from out of town to be married in DC choose either our Legal Online Marriage Package or our Simple Elopements Package “B”, which combines an in-person elopement ceremony in DC with an online legal marriage service. This is also a popular choice for local couples who do not want to spend hours during a work week waiting in the DC Marriage Bureau to get a marriage license.
