How To Get A Marriage License in Saskatchewan

Getting married in Saskatchewan is an exciting and memorable experience. But before you say “I do,” you’ll need to get a marriage license. Here’s a comprehensive guide on how to get a marriage license in Saskatchewan.

Gathering All Necessary Documentation

Before you can apply for a marriage license in Saskatchewan, you’ll need to gather some essential documentation. This includes government-issued identification for both parties, such as a passport or driver’s license. You’ll also need to provide proof of your age, which can be a birth certificate or a baptismal certificate.

Find A Marriage License Issuer Near You

Once you have all your necessary documents, you’ll need to find a marriage license issuer near you. In Saskatchewan, marriage licenses are issued by marriage commissioners and authorized religious representatives. You can find a list of marriage commissioners in your area on the Government of Saskatchewan website.

Apply for Your Marriage License

When you’ve found a marriage license issuer, you can apply for the marriage license. Both parties must be present when applying, and you’ll need to provide all the necessary documentation. You’ll also need to pay a fee, which varies depending on the issuer.

Wait for the Marriage License to be Issued

Once you’ve applied for the marriage license, you’ll need to wait for it to be issued. This typically takes about three days, but it can take longer during busy periods. It’s important to note that a marriage license is only valid for three months from the date of issue.

Give the Marriage License to Your Officiant

Once you’ve received your marriage license, you’ll need to give it to your officiant before the wedding ceremony. They’ll need to sign it during the ceremony and return it to Vital Statistics within 48 hours of the wedding.

Getting a marriage license in Saskatchewan is a straightforward process. You’ll need to gather necessary documentation, find a marriage license issuer near you, apply for the license, wait for it to be issued, and give it to your officiant. With these steps, you’ll be on your way to saying “I do” in beautiful Saskatchewan.
