Hawaii Marriage License Information

Both getting married in Hawaii & obtaining a marriage license are very simple!


The steps to apply for and obtain a marriage license in the state of Hawaii are very easy.  To start, you can apply for the license online.  The license is valid on all Hawaiian Islands, so if you pick it up on Maui, you can still use it on Big Island. 

Most people will complete their marriage license application online. 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 and meet with a marriage licensing agent in person.  

Here at Kona Wedding Officiant, we'll assist you with this process by making your marriage licensing appointment for you nearest to your vacation rental (or home) before your wedding. Once you complete the application online, we will gather the information we need from you to make these arrangements.

Steps For Completing Your Hawaii Marriage License

1. Just visit MARRIAGE LICENSE APPLICATION 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

"Deanna at Kona Wedding Officiant is amazing. My parents were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary and my siblings and I wanted to have a vow renewal ceremony for them on the beach with traditional Hawaiian chants. Everything was absolutely perfect from the beautiful beach location to her soothing voice. Thank You, Deanna for helping my siblings and I, give my parents a day they will remember."
