If your dress is jet-setting across country, contact one of the bridal boutiques in Portland and set up an appointment to have it steamed.

    The easiest way to get your marriage certificate is to visit the county records office or courthouse and make the request in person. In Oregon and Washington, you need to secure your marriage license at least 72 hours before your wedding, so don't wait until the day before. Don't apply too far in advance though; a marriage license has an expiration date of 60 days.

    We are super fans of our partners and sponsors - so much so, we've teamed up with a select few in an affiliate program. That means through our partnership we're able to pass on savings to you and in some cases receive a small commission. We firmly stand behind the quality of these vendors and would never promote or recommend anyone who hasn't gotten the Union Event Co seal of approval.
