Couples can purchase a license and say their vows at the Office of the Civil Marriages or buy a license and get married elsewhere. Once a license is obtained, if can be used for up to one year.

Beware of the chapel guys, try to run past them, if you can. Before and after we went into the bureau, as we were walking down the sidewalk, we had like 15 or 20 guys approach us with flyers from their chapels. It's kinda funny, they'd like stand in line until the guy ahead was done telling us about the packages. Some of them didn't speak english, and a couple of them drew us pictures of their "ceremonies" lol --
