Hawaii Marriage License Information

Steps For Completing Your Hawaii Marriage License

The process for a marriage license in Hawaii is very simple!  The website wording is confusing. The online application is valid up to one year.  The paper license in hand is only valid 30 days. You won't receive that until you get to Hawaii.  


1. Just visit https://emrs.ehawaii.gov/emrs/public/home.html;jsessionid=FD093771A7255776E36F7F74120B4A55.prodapp1 to complete your application online. The cost is $65 payable online. This application is valid online for up to one year from your issue date (the date you filled out the application).

What Our Couples Say

Beautiful ceremony with the spirit of Hawaii!

We had an amazing experience with Deanna. She is very attentive to details and very easy to work with. Communication was great and the ceremony itself was beautiful! I loved everything from flowers on the sand to Hawaiian words of commitment and beautiful singing. I highly recommend Deanna for your wedding or vow renewals!
