1. HOW CAN I ELOPE IN ST PETERSBURG?

To get married in Clearwater, visiting couples should go together to the nearest clerk of the circuit court office to obtain a marriage license. Florida marriage licenses are good for 60 days. Florida residents must wait three days to get a license. However residents who can provide documentation showing they completed a state-approved marriage preparation course within the year won’t have to wait three days.   A marriage license does not mean you are married, and it is not proof of marriage. Rather, it's documentation that shows you are allowed to get married. You still have to do the marriage ceremony/say your vows! But don’t forget to return the actual license to the clerk’s office where it was issued as your final step. They will give you certified copies of your marriage license for records.
