We want to get married TODAY. What are my choices?

OUR ANSWER? Washington DC. We can be there in an hour and a half. Obtaining a marriage license in the District involves just TWO STEPS. STEP 1. apply online ( STEP 2. go to the Marriage Bureau at the Moultrie Courthouse to show ID and pay the $45 fee ($35 for the application and $10 for a certified copy of the license). THAT’S IT. The District's three-day waiting period was officially eliminated in 2014, meaning the license will typically be issued the same day that you apply and you can marry immediately afterward. Bonus: Self-officiating marriages are legal in DC (and recognized everywhere else). You can do the whole thing yourselves, without even so much thinking about an officiant. The two of you would simply complete the above application process and submit your fee in person, then leave the courthouse premises to marry yourselves, and finally, return for the clerk’s signature to make it official. For more information, including links to the marriage license and officiant applications, visit the DC Courts website.
