Engaged and worried you'll be paying for your wedding festivities for decades to come? Thinking about tying the knot be need a little push to get to "I do?" You are bigtime in luck. Uber is offering free weddings on Saturday, June 28 (that's tomorrow) between 12 and 6pm, to customers who request a "Wedding on Demand" through the company's app. Yep, free. They'll also provide a violinist, flowers from Bloom That, candles from Bella J, dessert from Susiecakes, champagne from Iron Horse, plus a sexy gift bag from L.
HotelTonight and Alaska Airlines will provide transportation and accommodations for your honeymoon. Uber even provides a handy link with instructions on all the documentation you'll need for a marriage license.
Your wedding can be as large or as intimate as you'd like, so let your family and friends know if you intend to request. In the spirit of the season, there's no charge for the ceremony and your honeymoon is covered, too. Demand may be high, so if you're not confirmed on the first try, keep at it!
Wondering if this could possibly be for real, or have any other questions about the possibility of getting married TOMORROW for FREE? Email Uber here. Note that demand could be high, and requests might take an hour or so to fulfill. If you do tie the knot tomorrow, please tag us on Instagram!
