To schedule a wedding with a District Court judge, you must schedule the wedding appointment with a specific judge.
Call 206-205-9200. As soon as the message begins select English or Spanish then press option 7, then option 2, to hear information about weddings.
If the judge is not available to answer when you call, you will be connected to voice mail. Leave a message including your name, phone number where you can be reached, and when you would like to schedule the wedding.
Be aware that judges are not allowed to perform weddings between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday – Friday. Weddings may be performed before 8:30 am, after 4:30 pm, weekends and holidays – by appointment only.
On the day of your ceremony you will need to bring the entire marriage license envelope containing all the documents, and two people 18 years or older as your witnesses to sign the documents.
The wedding ceremony fee is set by each judge, so you must ask the judge what their fee is and how it should be paid.
