How to Obtain a Marriage License in Honolulu, Hawaii
To get married in Hawaii, a Marriage License must be received from the Department of Health before the Wedding. No blood tests (or divorce records) are required, only valid photo ID's and $60 cash (or $65 online payment).*
*Important: If you are under 19 years old, please bring your Birth Certificate and a Photo ID as proof of legal age to marry. If you have been divorced less than two months, please bring your Divorce decree.
Single persons 18 years of age and above may marry without parental consent. 17 year-olds need one parent's consent, and 16-year olds need both parents' consent.
Wedding packages do not include a Marriage License, which can only be obtained by the Bride & Groom by appearing in person together at the Dept. of Health.
