Couples looking to marry in New York must secure a license to do so from the State of New York at least 24 full hours before the ceremony is held. The fee is $35, payable by money order or credit card. Divorce and death decrees may be required if applicable. Both parties must provide proper identification (e.g. license or passport) and fill out a marriage license application, which is now possible to do online. The ceremony must take place in New York State for the license to be valid.

While the focus of a destination wedding is the happy couple and the wedding itself, many couples look to set up some organized group activities while everyone is together to make the whole experience even more memorable and fun. Our guest relations team would be delighted to help you plan these activities, and has even put together some fun options to consider.

Most of these are outdoor-oriented, in keeping with the times:
