Default Stupid Question

Right where to start.

The wife and I are coming back to New York after visiting there last year, and having the time of lives.

this time though we are bringing the children 12 & 14.

On Christmas day, got a cracking present, she proposed to me again, asking for us to renew our wedding vows. She gave me two options, Elland Road (Leeds Fan) or New York. I chose New York, as when we visited last year it was for our honeymoon (13 years late) so the place sort of has a place in our hearts (big place actually).

Now the question....

Can we do this as Foreigners, would we need a license of some sort, where can we do it, how do we do this. Would love to be able to do this at the top of the Empire State Building as my wife fell in love with the building and we have over 100 photo's of just the building.

Any info or website links that people may be able to give us would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks very much, from a couple of people wanting to say I DO again

Others will offer the required info, but I want to offer my congratulations. Lovely to hear of those that love each other enough to want to say "I do - again" many years later in the marriage.

Thanks Patrick.

Any idea where we can get the license from, and do you know if we can get this prior to our arrival in NY. Was thinking maybe to contact the US emabassy in Muscat

I may call on your services to renew our vows...depending if you can arrange a pre-nup weighted heavily in my favour.
