I believe it''s the city you get married in.

Smurfy, here is a link from the Cass County gov''t website -- I don''t know if this is where you''ll be getting married, but it looks like the info it gives is standard for the state. If in doubt, call the county clerk of the county you''ll be getting married in and they can tell you exactly what they require.

Make sure you read through all the rules for Cass County because sometimes there is a waiting period between when you apply for the license and when you can actually get married. I'll be getting my license right across the river in Clay County and it's valid for up to six months so I'm applying when I go home in March just in case something should happen where I can't get home in time to get it right before the wedding in May.

ETA: OK, so I just clicked on the link Octavia provided and Nodak doesn't have a waiting period and the application is good for 60 days. Very different rules than MN so obviously everyone needs to check out the requirements for their particular area!

Make sure you read your county''s marriage license procedures. Some places there is a "waiting period" before you can use the license to get married. Also there are expirations to a valid license as well.

My husband and I lived in San Diego during our engagement/wedding prep/3 post-wedding weeks, but we got married in the Boston area. Our wedding license is from MA.
