Marriage license

Karen, on 6/June/2018 at 22:26 Posted in Before the wedding
Does it matter where I get my marriage license in Ontario? I've seen on fb groups of lists where the cheapest to get marriage license but not sure if I can do so if I don't live and I'm not getting married in that area.

    I had no idea the prices varied in Ontario so much from one region to another. Nova Scotia has one set price as far as I know no matter where you get it from. Sounds like it is definitely worth a little travel, especially if you make a bit of a vacay out of it too.

    Awesome price! Thanks so much for this, I found $110 in St Thomas as one of the cheapest, so this is great to know! Mini day trip (we’re in London) to save some bucks, not too shabby!

    If your researching and will to go the distance for a cheaper price. The simcoe county has different ranges with taxes added on top. The lowest i found was Angus for $100 flat fee. It wasn't far of a drive which was was a good thing.

    I got it in Amhertsburg! I just checked again and it was about $20 dollars cheaper (117 in Amhertsburg versus 135 in Windsor). Might be worth the drive to save a little money.

    I purchased mine in a smaller town to get married in Windsor where it was about $30 more expensive. Anywhere to save money! As long as you buy it in Ontario, you can get married in any city.

    Thunder Bay is only $100, which is the same as Strathroy/Caradoc, so I will probably just get it here and save $30!

    Oh wow $161 is pricey. I'm going to Zora just outside London and it's $90 and will do a mini vacay with family to make it worth the drive.

    I had no idea that marriage license fees vary! I live in Thunder Bay but getting married in London (where I frequently visit) so I wonder where it would be cheaper. I don't think it matters where you get it, as long as it's in Ontario.
