News: I accept Texas, Mississippi and Tennessee Marrriage Licenses in addition to Louisiana Marriage Licenses. And they are Legally Binding if you get married in New Orleans, Louisiana. 

By law, Texas, Mississippi and Tennessee marriage clerks can issue marriage licenses that are valid outside of those states. Additionally, Texas, Mississippi and Tennessee residency is not required. You do not have to live in Texas, Mississippi, Tennessee -- or Louisiana to obtain a marriage license and get married in Louisiana, so couples from anywhere can use this option for their conveniece.
