What I call the  '90-72' rule.

 

You will not be allowed to obtain your license until 90 days from your wedding date and no later than 72 hours from your wedding date (this is waived for military personnel).

 

FEE"S for your License can vary from one county to another.  In Bexar County it is currently around $60.00
