Starting from next month, marriage registration offices across Beijing will offer the option of Chinese or western-style wedding certificate-awarding services to new couples at no extra charge, Beijing Times reported on Thursday.

The municipal civil affairs bureau announced at a press conference on Tuesday that the city would implement a new norm for marriage registration, the first revision in 11 years.

Beginning July 1, new couples who prefer a fancier customized service can make an appointment in advance with the marriage registration office, the paper said.

A civil affairs official also advised citizens to wear formal suits and wedding dresses, and make appointments for the registration.
