Applying to Get Married in DC (for same-sex couples)

Same-sex couples are - this very second! - lining up to apply for marriage licenses in DC!

History is being made as the 6th state in the country grants marriage equality.  

Here's the rundown of what you should know!

Hours of Operation - Mondays-Fridays: 8:30a.m.-5:00p.m.

  • The front door may be crowded but there are two other entrances
  • If you're one of the first 200 couples, you'll get a free cupcake from Hello Cupcake! 
  • Complete and print out your marriage application online before you go
  • Bring cash, at least $35
  • Bring a photo ID
  • There is a 3 day waiting period before you get your license so you can't get married until March 10th.
  • Be patient!  There will be long lines even though they've brought in extra staff to help.
  • Ignore any annoying protesters
Happy gay marriage in DC!  Did you apply today?  What was the scene like?
