Schedule a Wedding

The Springfield Municipal Court performs weddings on Fridays at 11:00 am.  Municipal Court weddings must be reserved, there are no unscheduled walk-ins for wedding ceremonies.  Each Friday is limited to a maximum of 4 ceremonies.  Please call and book your date as soon as possible.  The court maintains a yearly calendar for wedding ceremonies. 

Weddings should be scheduled through the coordinator at 417-864-1372.  Provide your name and phone number and the date you want to book and the coordinator will return your call to confirm if the date is available.  The coordinator will also provide general information as to the Court's policies regarding the wedding ceremony.  Leaving the voice mail does not guarantee a booking.  You must confirm with the coordinator by phone.  Wedding scheduling is done on a first come, first served basis.  Calls will be returned in the order they are received.
