Marriage Ceremonies

Seattle Municipal Court judges are available to perform marriage ceremonies at the courthouse at 4:30 p.m. every weekday. The courthouse is closed on weekends and holidays, however judges can perform marriage ceremonies at flexible times at a location of your choosing. There are a limited number of marriage ceremonies available at the courthouse per day, so we may not be able to accommodate all requests.  

Wedding parties are limited to a total of 6 people, including the couple and 4 witnesses. All members of the wedding party are required to wear face coverings and practice social distancing.

We do not accept requests that are made more than 8 weeks in advance before the requested date. If your wedding date is more than 8 weeks away, please wait to submit your request.
