Marriage License: How much does it cost and where can I get one?

Without a marriage license, a wedding is just a really fun party! So if you’re planning a wedding in Ontario you’ll need a marriage license. And while all marriage licenses are created equal, they do vary in price depending on where you decide to get your license. (A marriage licence is valid for 90 days from the date it is issued.)
