One of the oldest cities in the United States, it’s no surprise that Boston is full of historic monuments, romantic venues and glamorous hotels, all of which would make perfect wedding venues.

Marriage Requirements


The couple must apply in person at the Registry Division in Room 213 of Boston City Hall for a marriage intention application. This requirement applies to both residents and non-residents.

In Boston, proof of age is required if under the age of twenty-four. For proof of age, a certified birth record or passport is required.

There is a three day waiting period to receive your license. The license is valid for sixty days from the day you originally file and may be used in any city or town within the Commonwealth. This license cannot be used outside of this state. A waiver of the three day waiting period can be applied for at the city or town clerk's office where you apply and then presented to a court of competent jurisdiction for approval.

The person who performs the ceremony of marriage must sign the license and return it to the city or town where it was issued. That is the only place where the license will be registered.
