Marriage Licenses

All couples seeking to be legally married at the Hitchin’ Post Wedding Chapel will first need to obtain a Nevada State marriage license. Fortunately, it’s very easy!

Here are some things to know:
    • To obtain your marriage license, both parties must appear in person before a Clerk at the Clark County Marriage Bureau, 201 E. Clark Avenue, Las Vegas, NV 89101
    • The fee to obtain a Marriage License is $102.00 USD.
    • Requirements for U.S. citizens and non-U.S. citizens are the same, regardless of gender.
    • Applicants must be at least 18 years of age, and no nearer of kin than second cousins or cousins of half-blood, and not having a husband or wife living.
    • Identification to prove your name and age is required.
    • No blood test is required.
    • Nevada does not have a waiting period to marry.  Couples may marry immediately after obtaining their marriage license.
    • After your license is filed with the clerk by your Officiant, you may order a certified Marriage Certificate from the clerk’s office for a fee of $20.00
    • You may also obtain a Nevada State marriage license in jurisdictions outside of Clark County, Nevada. A fee of $10.00 is added to your officiant fee for such licenses to cover the cost of certified mail.

Expedited Certification is Available!

If you would like to get your Certified Marriage License fast, we can help with that. Your officiant will bring your license to be recorded and certified within 24 hours for an added officiant fee of $50.00, which includes the cost of the certificate . Your certified license will be available for pickup at the The Hitchin’ Post Certified the next day for weddings that take place Monday-Thursday. Weddings on Friday, Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays can receive a certified copy on the next business day.
