How to order a Florida Commemorative Marriage Certificate 

A commemorative certificate is signed by the current Governor and the State Registrar of the Bureau of Vital Statistics. The certificate is suitable for framing and preserving as a family heirloom. A Commemorative certificate is not acceptable for official purposes.

Florida marriage certificates from June 6, 1927 to present that have been recorded by the Clerk of Circuit Court are available through the Bureau of Vital Statistics. After the ceremony, the marriage license is returned to the Clerk of Circuit Court to be filed and recorded. The Clerk will then forward the marriage record to the Bureau of Vital Statistics for permanent filing. This process takes approximately 60 days.
