Now Only a 24 Hour Waiting Period For Marriage Licenses in Tangipahoa Parish

Let’s talk about marriage licenses. When, where, and how?!

First, I want to start off with some good news! As of today (August 1, 2018), all of our Tangipahoa Parish couples only need to get their marriage license 24 hours before their wedding day instead of the previous waiting period of 72 hours.

This news brings us to the “when” part of this blog post. When should you get your marriage license? For Louisiana couples, you typically need to get a marriage license at least 72 hours before your wedding day. These Louisiana marriage licenses expire after 30 days though, so don’t get one too early!

Where you get your marriage license could be more complicated than you think. It’s not where you live that matters. It’s where your ceremony will take place. For example: If you are having a destination wedding in Florida but you live in Louisiana, be sure to get your marriage license from the county in Florida that your wedding will be in.

How do you get a marriage license? Everywhere differs, but in Tangipahoa Parish you’ll need to visit the Clerk of Court with $35 cash, check, or credit card, and both parties will need a valid ID and their birth certificates. See more details here.

This all might seem a bit intimidating, but it’s really a simple process. If you have any questions, contacting your town clerk is a great idea. Again, remember the requirements for a marriage license vary by country, state, and even parish or country so be sure to double check those when you start the process of getting your marriage license.

I am so shy and awkward so I was nervous to have professional pictures done. But they make you feel so comfortable in front of the camera! Saying they are amazing is an understatement. I will always go to them for photography. Dylan and Danielle and truly the best.

Three Twenty Studio is the best!!! They have done my engagements, graduation, and wedding pictures.

What was MOST important to me was to connect with each of my vendors. They were so accommodating and thorough with anything I wanted or with any hesitation or fear I had for my day. I’m over the moon with my pictures and my film! Thank you so much. I’ll cherish this forever!

I just felt an instant connection on the phone with Dylan and I knew they were the right decision.
