Thinking about your beach wedding in Florida? Are you coming from out of state? Well here are some things you need to know about a marriage license and how to acquire one. Many people are coming to get married in Florida and Alabama. Why some of you ask? Because of our white sand beaches and turquoise waters. It really is beautiful here. If you are getting married in Florida you will need to have a Florida marriage license, no other state’s marriage license will be accepted in Florida. This same goes for Alabama, if you want to get married in Alabama you must obtain an Alabama marriage license. Marriage licenses for the states cannot cross state lines. There are no exceptions whatsoever to this. Laws that govern the states govern the marriage license offices as well. And although the Pensacola Beach wedding appeals to so many people because of the beautiful beaches you cannot bring a marriage license from Georgia and expect to get married in Florida. That’s not going to happen. Please make sure to check out our marriage license page with all the requirements listed for obtaining a marriage license from Florida or Alabama, including addresses and telephone numbers for marriage license offices. I’m looking forward to seeing you on the beach soon.
