There’s some good news for those looking to get married on a budget: City and town halls are back in the nuptials business.
Wedding bells will be ringing again, for example, at the New York City Marriage Bureau. Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Thursday that the city will again book appointments beginning on Monday and will start handing out marriage licenses Friday.
City hall and town hall weddings are a popular way to have a low-key marriage ceremony without spending a lot of money. In New York, for example, the cost for a marriage license is just $35. To get married on site, expect to fork over an additional $25.
New York-based wedding planner Amy Shey Jacobs, founder of Chandelier Events, expects couples to be running to the Big Apple’s city hall.
