NOTE: Massachusetts marriage licenses have a mandatory
3-calendar-day waiting period. You will be required to go to City Hall in person to complete the application process, and you must pick up the license - after those 3 days - also in person. Licenses are valid for 60 days from the date on which they are filed. For couples residing outside Massachusetts who are looking to get married in Salem, this may impact the length of your stay!
