Most of the time, marriage licenses are sent by mail to the bride and groom, but in many cases you will still have to go in person to pick it up. Once you obtain the license, you are still not officially married until it’s been signed by all appropriate parties. Usually this will include the wedding officiate and witnesses, and may or may not include the bride and groom. Once signed, the marriage license must be returned to the county clerk’s office (again, standard U.S. mail is usually fine here) and filed in their records. Once this is done you can order a copy.
