Marriage License Bureau

Civil Ceremony
In addition to applying for your Marriage License at the Miami-Dade County Clerk's Office, the County Clerk's Office can perform your marriage ceremony. A brief civil ceremony can be performed at any of the Marriage License Offices.

The marriage ceremony must be performed within 60 days of the issuance of the license. After the marriage ceremony, the marriage license must be returned to the Miami-Dade County Marriage License Bureau.

A small room has been designated as a marriage room and decorated by the clerks at each location for the purpose of holding marriage ceremonies. You may wish to bring family, friends, as well as flowers and a photographer or a camera.

Visit the fee schedule for a list of our marriage ceremonial service fees.
