How to Obtain your Marriage License and Certificate in RI.
In Rhode Island, in order to obtain a marriage license, the bride and groom must personally appear at the town clerk’s office to sign the marriage license.
If the bride and groom, or only the bride, are Rhode Island residents, the license must be obtained from the town or city clerk’s office of the bride’s residence. If only the groom is a Rhode Island resident, the license must be obtained from the town or city hall of the groom’s residence.
In either case, the marriage can take place anywhere in Rhode Island.
*If neither the bride nor the groom is a Rhode Island resident, the license must be obtained from the clerk’s office in the town or city where the marriage will take place in order for the marriage record to be valid.
