Tip of the Day: Marriage licenses expire after a certain period of time and some states have a several day waiting period, so make sure to plan ahead! Marriage license bureaus generally require you to pay in cash, and in most places, both bride and groom must apply together, in person. You'll need specific identification — in many states, a photo ID (like a driver's license) and Social Security card will suffice, but other places may require a certified birth certificate.The majority of states have dropped the blood test requirement, but some do retain it or another medical requirement.
