Frequently Asked Questions

I would like to enter into a civil marriage. Do we need a civil marriage license? Do we need blood tests?

Before your ceremony, you must buy a Vermont marriage license. It must be given to the officiant before your marriage is performed. While your license may be bought up to two months before your ceremony, it "becomes void" 60 days from the date of issue if the proposed marriage or union is not solemnized. You do not need a blood test.
