Sturgis Marriage


Sturgis Marriages - the legal stuff...

Sturgis marriage

  • This is information we have gathered on getting married in South Dakota. You should call one of the Register of Deeds offices below to double-check the current situation.

  • You'll need a license from a Register of Deeds Office in a South Dakota county. They can be purchased from any Register of Deeds at any courthouse in South Dakota, and used to get married anywhere in the state. That's handy to know if you will be arriving in Sturgis after the courthouse closes at 5 p.m. You can pick up the license somewhere along the way to use here.

  • A South Dakota marriage license costs $40. Some offices accept only cash and possibly travelers checks.

  • For Sturgis Rally weddings, call a Register of Deeds office at:

    Sturgis - 1425 Sherman St (605) 347-2356
    Rapid City - 315 St. Joseph St (605) 394-2177
    Deadwood - 78 Sherman St (605) 578-3930
    Custer - 420 Mount Rushmore Rd (605) 673-2784

  • For identification you'll need either a driver's license or a certified copy of a birth certificate.

  • There is no blood test or waiting period.

  • Those 16 and 17 must have parental consent. South Dakota law does not permit marriage of those under 16.

  • The marriage must be performed within 20 days from the purchase of the license.

  • Once you are married, the person who married you must return the license to the Register of Deeds within 10 days. If not, there will be no record of your marriage.
