Uber Celebrates Pride Week With Weddings On Demand

The 44th annual San Francisco Pride Week is coming up this weekend, and San Francisco-based car booking company Uber is celebrating it by helping folks get married nearly instantly.

On Saturday, couples who have been thinking about getting married for a while or are just feeling adventurous can request a wedding via the company’s one day only UberWEDDING service.

To request a wedding, the interested couple – or one of the partners, at least – have to open up the Uber app between noon and 6 PM on Saturday, June 28th. They need to select UberWEDDING and then drop the pin on where they want the ceremony to be. If their request is accepted, their wedding will be en route. The couple can bring their own vows or Uber can provide them with pre-written vows.

Of course, people can’t get married without the papers necessary for a marriage license, so those who want to get hitched should have the required documents ready to make things go smoother.

According to Uber’s post about the service, the ceremony – from arrival to “I do” – will take anywhere between 45 to 60 minutes. As soon as the UberWEDDING arrives, everyone can get started right away. Uber will have an on-site notary so the couple can obtain their marriage license on the spot. Once the license becomes official, a violinist will start playing and the ceremony can begin. The couple will walk down an aisle decorated with flowers by Bloom That and candles by bella j. The happy event will also have desserts by SusieCakes and champagne from Iron Horse. The couple will also receive a special gift from L.

The marrying couple can have an intimate wedding or they can invite their family and friends if they like.

The ceremony is completely free and Uber will also throw in a honeymoon – also for free! A few weeks after the wedding, Uber’s partners HotelTonight and Alaska Airlines will be providing the couple with free flights and accommodations for their honeymoon.

Uber warns that demand for an UberWEDDING may be high on that day so folks just need to keep at it if their initial requests do not get confirmed.

Uber has offered wedding-related services in some cities, but the UberWEDDING in San Francisco would be the first time that the company will offer a free wedding ceremony to a couple.
