Planning is the most important task you will need to perform in order for your wedding to be a success. The more people that will be attending the more planning you will need to do. It is highly recommended that you come here prior to the big event to be sure that everything you have chosen (lodging, chapel, reception hall, etc.) is exactly like you want it to be. Weddings are such an important part of life that you should never leave any detail to chance or assume that we or anyone else can read your mind as to what you want.

Marriage Licenses

Marriages in Tennessee are surprisingly easy; there’s little red tape to get caught up in. A Tennessee marriage license can be obtained in person or online (license online) from any of the County Clerk’s Marriage License Centers. There is no waiting period. Both parties must be present to obtain the marriage license. Proof of age is required by a valid driver’s license; if applicants do not have a driver’s license, they may use a state-issued I.D., a valid passport or certified birth certificate. They must present a social security card if it is not provided on the applicants’ driver’s license. No blood tests are required, and applicants need not be residents of Sevier County to wed here. Couples may also bring a valid Tennessee marriage license from anywhere in the state of Tennessee, but licenses are only valid for 30 days after their issue. If applicants are under the age of 18, both parents or legal guardians must sign the marriage certificate. No appointments are necessary to obtain the license. Contact one of the offices listed below for current fees and requirements.
