For those who got married in Oahu, how many days to get the marriage license?

Recommended Posts

Hello Ladies! We are getting legally married in Oahu on September 3, two days after Labor Day. We are applying for the marriage license the day before our wedding. Is a full day enough to get the marriage license? Thank you in advance for your help!

Thank you Yari! I tried calling them but I only got a recording. I am still hoping somebody from this forum who got married in Oahu can share their experience. Thanks a lot again!

 

Best to you!

Im getting married in Oahu and my WC set up the appt to get our marriage license on Wed morning and we are getting married on Fri. morning so I dont think it will be a problem.

From what I have heard all you have to do is go the the state health department with your ID's, $60 in cash and it takes 45 min. to do all of the paperwork. Then its good for 30 days.

Here I just pulled this off of the hawaii state department of health's website:

Upon approval, a marriage license is issued at the time the application is made. So I think you are going to be fine.

pinkie.gif Thanks to all of you ladies for the help! I appreciate it very much! I love this forum! Here is Gina's (of Pixoflife) reply also:

 

Hi Jessica,

 

How neat to have not 1 but 2 destination weddings! The process for a marriage license on Oahu went very smoothly. I think we were there for less than an hour tops and received the paperwork immediately.

Not sure if you have viewed this site, but you can download the marriage license app here and it will speed the process up even more if you complete it beforehand. Once you arrive, you just sign in, a staff member will take you to complete the app and should give it to you after a little wait depending on how busy it is.

 

Regarding turnaround time after the ceremony, we did not get the rush option and received our license in the mail to our home in CA within a month.

 

Hope that info helps!

Here is more information regarding obtaining a marriage license AFTER OFFICE HOURS:

Hey Jessica!

 

I went two business days beforehand, just in case. It took less than 30 minutes, there was no line around 10 AM. They just have to re-type all the paperwork and make you say a little statement and sign the paper. The most difficult part was that we had to figure out our parents' full names and that was about it. They also asked if I wanted to expedite getting the certificate afterwards (which takes two weeks)... for another $10. That was a different line (records) so that took a lot longer.

 

If you dont want to change your name, make sure you tell them that as well.

 

Good luck!

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
