Marriage License

You may apply for your marriage license from the Town Clerk in the town where the actual ceremony will take place by completing a Marriage License Worksheet.  The license must be obtained no earlier than 65 days prior to the wedding date.  Both spouses must apply in person (not necessarily at the same time) at the Town Clerk's Office.  You are required to bring valid photo identification when applying.  The fee for a marriage license is $30.00 payable by cash, check or money order payable to "Town of Sprague."  Blood test and waiting period are no longer required by the State of Connecticut which allows a couple to apply as late as the day of the wedding.

Certified Copy

Once the marriage ceremony has taken place and the marriage license is returned to our office by the officiator a certified copy can be obtained by completing a Request for Copy of Marriage Certificate. Only the bride and groom may obtain a certified copy with social security numbers, all other requests will have the social security numbers redacted.  There is a fee of $20.00 per certified copy.  Valid photo identification will be required.
