Most offices provide a return envelope for mailing the marriage license back to the office. If an envelope is not given to you, ask for one. The clerk may have forgotten to give you one.
If you wish, you may file it yourself after it has been signed by the officiant performing the ceremony. Some couples need to get the license before they leave the state so this is an option for you.
