Wyoming Wedding Laws

How to Perform a Wedding in Wyoming

The state of Wyoming has relatively standard regulations for marriage laws. It is important that any ordained minister desiring to perform a Wyoming wedding ensure that they adhere to these policies in a prompt manner to ensure the legality of the marriage.

How to Become an Ordained Minister in Wyoming

Wyoming allows ordained ministers from all religious organizations. Ministers of non-religious organizations may also officiate weddings as well. All ministers must be able to establish that they have been authorized by their respective organization to solemnize a marriage. Universal Life Church Monastery ministers who are ordained online meet these requirements.
