Your Wedding • Marriage License Here’s what you need to know, and what documents you need to bring with you, to apply for a marriage license in Watauga County.

As of October 2001, a marriage license issued in any county in the state may be used at any place within the state within sixty days of the date of issuance. We recommend getting this legal aspect of your wedding out of the way a few weeks to a month before your ceremony date, but there is no waiting period to be married in North Carolina, so you could obtain your license the day of your arrival if the Watauga County Register Of Deeds is open at that time. The information at the publication date of this page was current but It is important that you verify all information with the Watauga County Office Of Register Of Deeds.
