hi, we are looking at getting married next yr in newyork (heading over for shopping trip with family). less than 10 people including ourselves. anyone any idea how to go about it or where would be suitable and not too expensive. just looking for small ceremony and then meal and couple drinks somewhere. not sure if going to wear dress or not but will be wearing it for party afterwards here. any ideas or suggestions helpful.
The City Hall marriage bureau has recently been renovated and is trying to become a international wedding destination. You'll find the info on what you need at the link below. It's cheap $35 for the marriage license and an additional $25 for the City Hall ceremony.
Many NY restaurants have private rooms suitable for a dinner for 10 or you could just have a large table in the main dinning room. Do you have any idea the kind of food you'd be interested in or the per head budget.
City Hall is quite near China Town - real fun and very cheap would be to have a meal at one of the dim sum palaces after the ceremony.
