How do I get married in New York City?
People getting married in New York City first need to obtain a marriage license. You can begin the process of obtaining a marriage license online via "City Clerk Online." Both the prospective bride and groom must appear in person at one of the borough offices of the City Clerk of New York (sited in each Borough Hall) and bring proper identification. The fee for a Marriage License is $35 by credit card or money order payable to the City Clerk. A blood test is not required to obtain a Marriage License in the State of New York.
