Couples are responsible for picking up their licence from any City Hall in Ontario prior to their wedding. Although everyone gets the same licence regardless of where they pick it up, the prices charged by the cities will vary.
Here is a list of the current prices for licences in the Toronto area starting with the best bargains:
Brant (Paris, Ontario) $120
Wasaga Beach $125
Toronto $140 (Toronto, Etobicoke, Scarborough, North York)
Richmond Hill $156
King city $168.50
I always recommend that couples get their licence 2 months prior to their wedding to get it off their to-do list. Its is valid for 3 months, but it's wise to have an extra month in the (eek, don't say it...) case it gets left at home on their wedding day and the signing must be done later on. If you DO leave your licence at home, the date put on licence is the date it is signed.
