The fee for a marriage license is $93.50 and there is a three (3) day waiting period for Florida residents; there is no waiting period for non-residents.
Florida residents who have completed a premarital preparation course and can provide completion certificates will only be required to pay $61.00 and the three (3) day waiting period will be waived.
If both applicants ARE NOT a resident of the State of Florida, then no waiting period is required.
If either applicant is a resident of the State of Florida, then Florida does require a three day waiting period from the date you apply for your license.
