How much did it cost you to get married at the courthouse?

I am having a wedding ceremony next spring, but I want to get the actual legal mumbo out of the way before then.  This is a recent development.  We don't want the whole vow and witness thing there.

I can't seem to find anything on our city's website saying how much it would actually cost, though.  I will call, but they are closed.. I just want a ballpark estimate so I know how much to budget in for it.

We had a judge come to our house, had the wedding in our back yard with family and friends, it cost 75.00 at the time.

I'm in Texas too, ours was $65 for the license and I don't think we paid anything for the JP. It was just us and her and a clerk.

We only had to pay $25 for our marriage license in GA.The judge performed the ceremony for free for us.Not sure how much that would normally cost.

We got married while we were living in las Vegas, and it was $60 for the license. We went through the drive thru chapel and it was $50 for that ceremony. There were more expensive packages, with pictures and stuff, but we didn't want that. They provided a witness.

We paid $100 for the licence and something like 350 for the wedding itself in a small chapel. Wasn't anything fancy as hubby and I only took two people with us and we didn't get too dressed up.

In MN it was around $50-$75 for the license (in 2010). We h ad a family friend marry us. We needed two whiteness be sides the officiant.
Look at the dates, the marriage licence is only valid for a certain time.
My sister went to the Justice of the peace. It appeared easy. Good luck.
