There are, of course, some must’s that apply—- like getting your marriage license. We will ask for your marriage license before the ceremony begins, Here in the Golden Isles, you can apply for your license at the Glynn County offices in Brunswick GA or near you if you’re a resident of Georgia. We hear a lot that couples are nervous about the process and in all honesty, we have heard nothing but glowing recommendations about the staff here.
The in’s and out’s of getting a marriage license in Glynn County: (Check your county website for their specific requirements if you’re not marrying here).
If either of the applicants is a resident of the State of Georgia, the marriage license can be obtained from any Probate Court in any county in the State. It is not required that an applicant obtain their marriage license from the county in which they reside. If neither of the applicants is a resident of the State of Georgia, the license must be obtained in the county in which the ceremony is to be performed.
