Getting your TN Marriage License

Click here for TN MARRIAGE LICENSE Information in our county, Sevier County.

The City of Gatlinburg is in Sevier County.  To be married in Tennessee, you will need to obtain a TN marriage license. Tennessee wedding license laws are very friendly and obtaining a TN license  is very easy.  You may get your license at any courthouse in Tennessee, however there are 3 in our County, including the one in Sevierville at the courthouse, one in Pigeon Forge (opened on Saturdays only) and a sub-station here in Gatlinburg.  Here's what you need to know other than being 18 years of age.

1. A Government issued photo id:  Either a valid drivers license, passport or your birth certificate. If your Social Security number is not printed on your driver's license, you will need proof of your Social Security Number, either have your SS Card or a document with you SS# and name on the document.  It's no longer just enough to know your number.   If you have any questions, please contact the county clerk's office directly.  

2. If you have been married before, you will need the month and year of your divorce, or the date of your deceased spouse's death. Please call the courthouse for specific details 865-453-5502. There are no waiting periods or blood tests. You can get married the same day you purchase your license, and you may get your license up to 30 days prior to your wedding.

* Each county in the state determines the price of the license. In Sevier County (where Gatlinburg is located) the fee is:

Out of state residents: about $45.00.  The clerk's office appreciates correct change if paying with cash.

Tennessee residents: $105.00, cash. If you have taken an approved premarital course, your cost will be approximately $45.00. Please call 865-453-5502 for specific details.

*All other Tennessee counties' fees will vary and also include an additional $60 if you do not provide a certificate stating that you have had 4 hours of counseling.

For more information, call the courthouse or contact us and we will be glad to send you a map or any additional information you need.
