New York City’s new rules limiting the number of couples you can invite to your wedding will be a boon to single people.
New York City will now require couples to provide a name, address, phone number and social security number to make the arrangements.
New Yorkers have been complaining about having to send in invitations for a while.
And some couples have even tried to sue New York for making it more difficult for them to arrange their weddings.
So, the New York Times reports that the city is taking action to reduce the number and complexity of wedding invitations.
But, there’s a catch: New York’s rules will apply to single weddings, and not couples.
If you’re a couple, you’ll need to create an online account and sign up to receive invitations.
New Jersey will also ban you from sending invitations to a person you don’t know.
You’ll have to register your name and phone number online and submit your request to get an invitation.
And you’ll have five days to submit a request to send a single invitation.
The rules will take effect Oct. 1.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is promising that New Yorkers will not be forced to go through the hassle of signing up to get married.
And, he says, the city has made the rules so people will have to get used to them.
The New York state law applies to all weddings, including those for same-sex couples.
