Good morning. If you're getting married in the state of Wisconsin you must first apply for a wedding license at any in-state county clerk office. These offices, some of which are referred to as the "marriage license bureau," are usually located in the county probate court or circuit court.There is a mandatory 6 day waiting period before your license is issued to you. In most states, the waiting period does not include Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.You can get married immediately after your marriage license is issued, so if you plan the dates you can marry and receive the marriage certificate within the 10 days.I hope this clarifies. Please don’t forget to rate the question with stars
