Florida is famed for its immaculate beaches, lush green forests, and sunny weather all year long. The state is bounded by the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico on either side, so expect to catch sight of clear waters and sandy shores wherever your eyes land. The warm temperature is one of the many reasons why the Sunshine State is the perfect place to get hitched. As per the legalities, no citizenship or residency is required to apply for a marriage license in Florida, so even non-residents and non-citizens can legally marry within the state’s boundaries. You just have to be over 18 years and you’ll be free to apply for a license.
