There can be confusion betweena Marriage License and your Certified Marriage Certificate that will be explained below:
Your Marriage License is your legal permission to get married. The couple must go together to theMarriage License Bureau prior to arriving at #MarriedInVegas Studios.

You must have a valid photo I.D. in order to be issued a marriage license. The cost of a marriage license is $77. You will be issued a MarriageLicense, and two blank Marriage Certificates. Please do not take any papers out of the issued license envelope, as the Minister knows what papers are needed. If your Marriage License is damaged ortorn, it will not be accepted and a new license must be obtained prior to the ceremony.
*Obtaining your marriage license does Not mean the couple is legally married. The couple must still have their license signed by a legal wedding officiant.
Certified Marriage Certificate
After the ceremony is over, you will immediately receive your Souvenir Marriage Certificatewith information on how to order the certified copy. The minister is legally obligated to file thecertified copy of the marriage certificate within 10 calendar days, after which you can place anorder online for your certificate to be mailed to your address. Typically, most couples will have the certified copy2-4 weeks after their ceremony. The certified copy is what is used to make name changes with theSocial Security Office, and DMV, as well as making any changes to Insurance status, or whenfiling for Immigration paperwork. A Certified Marriage Certificate is needed to make all of theselegal changes.
