Marriage license in Miami

Just wondering if anyone has gotten their marriage license at the MIami-Dade Courthouse that has been from out of state? We are getting married 3/17/12 in South Beach but live in Pa. I'm skeptical about gettting down there on the Thursday before and going to the courthouse to get the marriage license. i'm just afraid there maybe an issue but doing it by mail is $300. Has anyone had any issues with getting their license at the courthouse a few days prior to the ceremony?

    Hi, I did before. Here's the link to their website.

    Remember that it takes 3 days before it is valid unless you take the required 4 hour premarital courses. Not sure how that will work out of state so just  make sure you get it 3 days or more before your weddings so you will not have any issues. You can also make an appointment on their website so that you don't have to wait that long. Also fill out the pre-application that way they have everything all set in their system and you will feel good knowing that everything is correct.  It's pretty easy & all of the info is on their website. You can also call them to confirm. They were nice on the phone & at the court house. I thought it would be like going to the horrible DMV but nope, I was wrong. It was a nice experience.
