PURCHASING A MARRIAGE LICENSE:
In Saskatchewan, couples who want to marry must purchase a Saskatchewan Marriage License.
A marriage license is only valid for a period of three months, or 90 days. The marriage license becomes effective the day after it is purchased. Therefore, the marriage license can be purchased anywhere from one day to 90 days prior to the wedding ceremony.
The fee to purchase a marriage license is $60.
Your marriage license can be purchased in Regina, it takes minutes to complete. Both you and your partner need to be present, along with two pieces of government issued identification (one with photo identification). If you were like me and didn't have your middle name listed on your passport, be sure to bring a document that DOES list your middle name.
