Marriage license applications will be available to same-sex couples in Hennepin County beginning June 6, FOX 9 reports.

County officials are expected to offer an overview of the applications during a media conference Thursday afternoon, the Star Tribune reported. “Basically, there are language changes,” county spokeswoman Carolyn Marinan told the Star Tribune. “For instance, the current form says bride and groom, which will be changed.”

Ramsey County plans a similar application unveiling in the “next few days,” spokesman Art Coulson told the newspaper.

After a high-profile debate and widely-watched votes in the Legislature this year, Gov. Mark Dayton signed the bill May 14 that legalized same-sex marriage in the state.

Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak plans to officiate weddings after midnight on Aug. 1, MPR reported in an FAQ feature about the new gay marriage law.
