Getting your Alabama Marriage License

To get married in the state of Alabama, you need to obtain a license within 30 days of your wedding date. The cost is $70 as of July 2019 and can be paid via cash, credit card, cashier’s check, or money order. You must also have a valid government-issued I.D., drivers license, or passport.  


Whether you want to say your ‘I do’s’ at the beach, a church, a historic venue, a local restaurant, or even on the water, you’ll find a spot in Orange Beach to meet your needs.

The Port at Zeke’s Landing, Swift-Coles Historic Home, Perdido Queen Cruises, Graham Creek Nature Preserve, and Pensacola Beach are among the area’s finest places to get married. 


All Island Flowers, Coastal Flowers & Design, and Stemz Flower Shop are among the top-rated florists in the area. Check with your wedding venue to see if they offer anything for centerpieces or decor for the ceremony and reception.
