There are three Washington State Marriage Databases on FS
Basic Vital Records
B ~ M ~ D
All can be found in many online sources, but begin with Family Search, as it is free - If you do not have an account, be sure and sign up.

When  you have harvested all you can, then use the FS Catalog and look for specific types of records such as Church Records and Genealogical Society Publications.

Your local library might also have a subscription to World Vital Records.

Finally, if you have a subscription to Ancestry go there, or go to your local public library where they might have access to the Library edition.
Check your local FHL - they have access.


 Note: Due to privacy concerns, all of the records here have a birth cut-off year of 1935.
