Witness Requirements on Marriage License

Many states require that 1 - 2 witnesses also sign the marriage license.

It is a requirement in many states that a witness, or pair of witnesses, also sign the marriage license. The witness(es) must complete their required fields on the license and sign the document. Traditionally this is done by the maid of honor and/or best man.
