Get Hitched In Seattle – Beware Of The 3-Day Waiting Period!

If you are eloping in Seattle or anywhere in Washington State, beware of the 3-day rule.

I can’t tell you how many calls I get from couples wanting to be married today or tomorrow AND they forget about the 3-day waiting period once a marriage license is issued.

So here is what you need to know.

Yes, you do need a marriage license.  And from the date of issue, there is a 3-day waiting period in every County in Washington State.

So before you get hitched – elope – whatever you want to call it, get your license and plan to sit on it for at least 3 wonderful days!
