Taipei--The annual group wedding under the Sacred Tree on Alishan will be held in mid-October and registration is now open but only 10 couples will be selected to participate this year, the organizers said Tuesday.

Couples that have been married for less than a year or are planning to tie the knot soon are eligible to register to take part in the wedding, which will begin on Oct.14, the Alishan National Scenic Area Administration said.
