When you apply, you’ll let them know you need to get married within 24 hours, and you can request the Judicial Waiver.  Do you plan to get married in the courthouse, or are you taking your license and getting married somewhere in NYC?  Once you get the judicial waiver, you’ll need to present it to your officiant along with the license so they can legally sign the document (which states it can’t be signed until a certain date and time, exactly 24 hours after it was issued).

It shouldn’t be a huge deal, but is there any way for you to either extend your trip or go there a few weeks early and apply?  I believe licenses are valid for at least sixty days.

You should call the bureau, they can answer most of your questions.  While you can get a waiver, it’s not something done for a whim thing, so just be prepared if you are told you can’t get one.

If you both can go to NYC early and get your license to still have it valid for a wedding within 60 days, then I’d go that route.  GL.

You are fine to get it and get married on the same day with a judical waver. If you want… you can start the process online, but not more than 60days in advance.
