WOODBURY - Gay couples on Long Island may have to wait an extra day to tie the knot.

The state's same-sex marriage law goes into effect on July 24.

The date falls on a Sunday, so many clerk's offices on Long Island will not be open to get a marriage license.

Officials say if you head to the city, the offices will open at 8:30 a.m.

There is a 24 hour waiting period before people can be married but a judge can waive that.
