Vegas Puts The Drive-By Wedding In Gear

Ever wish you could take the so-called most special day of your married life and shorten the crap out of it? Well, in the spirit of Vegas, you now can. Introducing: The Drive-by wedding!

I guess when you think about it, spending months agonizing and planning the commencement of holy matrimony does seem a tad anomalous. I mean if the effort planning equaled the duration of success… we probably wouldn’t have more than half ending in divorce. Given those numbers, why shouldn’t getting hitched be more like a lazy trip to the McDonald’s window?

Need time to rethink the decision? Don’t worry. It will take whole ten minutes (weather permitting) to get a minister-equipped van that comes curbside to marry you for a cool $99. A hundred bucks and we’re done? Woo-hoo! Screw the white doves! And we’ll have rice at the Chinese place down the street! I’ll even throw it at you, honey.

According to ABC, “The Las Vegas Wedding Wagon is the brainchild of Andy Gonzalez and James Cass (‘Reverend Andy’ and ‘Reverend James’), two refugees from the corporate world who say they got the idea last year. They performed their first Wedding Wagon wedding just last week and have so far married four couples.”

After doing some research, the two were thrilled to find out that “7,000 to 9,000 weddings get performed in Vegas every month.” With Elvis chapels getting increasingly booked and busier by the month, they saw the opportunity for a mobile niche.

In fact, I covered the Sin City “Hangover Bus” a few months back that also helped to give them the ‘driving’ nudge to pull the trigger on this. The guys say they are non-denominational. But I’m thinking they should have a little fun here and say they belong to the Church of Octane.

If we could just find a few more “service” vehicles, Vegas could go completely mobile. Think about it.

The LIMO brings you to the hooker. The curbside WEDDING VAN marries you. You party the night away in the BOULEVARD PARTY WAGGON. The next morning requires the services of the HANGOVER BUS. After you realize what you have done… All we need now is the DIVORCE TAXI on the way to the airport.
