Williamson County dealing with marriage license shortage

WILLIAMSON COUNTY - Engaged couples in Williamson County will have to wait until Sept. 22 in order to be legally married in the state of Texas due to a shortage on marriage licenses.

Williamson County spokesperson Connie Watson confirmed to KVUE that the county clerks office ran out of marriage licenses near the end of August because of a miscommunication when they submitted the paper order. The clerk's office said their vendor waited 13 days to tell them about a potential delay with the order.

Watson said the new licenses will be printed in Waco on Sept. 21 and be available in Williamson County the next day.

People who have wedding dates set sooner than Sept. 22 can go to a different county to get a marriage license.
