Activists are still working to line up judges who could waive the waiting period for same-sex couples who want to exchange vows first thing Monday, when gay marriage will become legal in New Jersey.

Garden State Equality executive director Troy Stevenson said Saturday that the effort was "work in progress."

Stevenson didn't have specific details on how many judges would be available to consider the waivers. But he says many marriages will be held across the state as soon as possible once the new policy takes effect at 12:01 a.m. Monday.

Meanwhile, many same-sex couples continued to scramble Saturday to plan their ceremonies.
