Step One: Decide which size of marriage certificate you want to order, because Alberta has two:

1. Wallet size: 9.5 cm x 6.4 cm

Included on the wallet size certificate:

  • Name of both parties to the marriage
  • Dates and places – when and where – the marriage took place
  • Registration number and date
  • Date issued

2. Framing Size: 21.5 cm x 17.9 cm

Included on the framing size certificate:

  • The same information as the wallet size, plus
  • The birthplace of both parties to the marriage
