Once you've applied for and obtained your marriage license in Tucson, Arizona, the next step is to get married. Saying your vows in front of witnesses and a licensed officiant legalizes your marriage once you and your new spouse, the officiant and a witness sign your marriage license. Your officiant will file your marriage license with the Pima County Clerk of Court in Tucson and you will officially be married. Couples that obtain an Arizona marriage license do not have to wait to use their license. It is issued the day you apply and can be used immediately, anywhere, in Arizona.
Plan the details of your wedding if you have not already done so prior to applying for your marriage license. Details include choosing the type of wedding you want, a venue and an officiant.
Contact the appropriate people, such as venues, officiants or your local courthouse to book a date and time for your marriage. Invite the guests you'd like to be in attendance at your wedding ceremony.
Get married. Bring your marriage license to your wedding with you. You, your new spouse, your officiant and one witness need to sign the license once the ceremony is over.
