Although much care and effort has been taken to ensure the information provided in respect of the legal requirements for getting married in France is correct please do not take it as legal advice.
I strongly advise you to consult the Consulate or Embassy of the Republic of France for first hand information.
However, it is very important to stress that this will be at the discretion of the Mayor at the Mairie (town hall) where you intend to get married.
Therefore, I would strongly suggest that you contact the Mayor first to discuss the options available to you.

Marriages performed in France are internationally recognised and legally binding.
At least one of the parties to be married has to have been resident in France for a minimum of 40 days continuously, immediately preceding the marriage.
In practice, this means that all marriages must be performed by the mayor (mairie) or his legally authorized replacement, such as a deputy mayor (adjoint) or a city councilor (counseiller municipal), of the town in which one of the parties to be married has resided for at least forty (40) days immediately preceding the marriage.
All Americans marrying in France must comply with this requirement.
