Wedding RingsCouples can be married either by a member of the clergy, Justice of the Peace, or friend/family member.

Want a friend or family member to perform your wedding ceremony? A One Day Marriage Designation is available from the Governor’s Office. Applications are available online. The application must be in at least six weeks, but no more than three months before the ceremony is to take place.

The rules and procedures for getting married in Massachusetts are defined by Chapter 207 of the Massachusetts General Laws (MGL). 

See Massachusetts Law About Marriage for links to laws, forms and more.
