A couple who intends to be married in New York State, must apply for a marriage license to any town or city clerk in the state. The state of New York does not require couples to be residents of New York to marry in the state, but licenses issued in the state of New York must be used within the state. The application must be signed by both applicants in the presence of the town or city clerk and representatives cannot apply for the license on behalf of applicants. Even if the representative is given Power of Attorney, the applicants cannot substitute their personal appearance.
Once you’ve got the wedding costs under control, the last thing you want to think about is paying for a honeymoon. If you find that your honeymoon funds are going to be on the limited side, you don’t need to ditch your plans altogether. Be prepared to research, research, research to get the biggest bang for your buck. It takes time and effort and feistiness to ensure frugality.
