How do I get a certified copy of a marriage license?

According to Idaho Statute Title 39, a marriage license does not become public record until 50 years after the date of marriage. However, members of the wedding party may appear in our office and receive certified copies of his or her marriage license, as long as they have identification. Requests can also be made by calling the Bureau of Vital Statistics in Boise. Vital Statistics can be reached at 208-334-5980, or you can visit their website.
