Uber is offering to marry gay couples on demand

Posted Jun 27, 2014

Uber, the on-demand car company, has launched a new marketing stunt to “honor” San Francisco?s LGBT Pride week. Uber is offering to marry people on-demand.

“When your UberWEDDING arrives, we?ll get started right away. You?ll first work with our on-site notary to obtain your marriage license. Once the license is official, the violinist will begin to play and the ceremony will commence!” said Uber in a blog post. “You?ll walk down an aisle surrounded by flowers from Bloom That and candles from bella j. After you both say ‘I Do,’ we?ll celebrate with dessert from SusieCakes, cheers with champagne from Iron Horse and you?ll receive a gift bag from L.”

If you want to have a sudden wedding, open up the Uber app and drop a pin where you want the wedding to take place. Uber will also provide you with vows.

?From arrival to ‘I do’ will take 45 ? 60 min,? said Uber. “We?re thankful to be based in San Francisco, a city that recognizes love doesn?t have to look any certain way. In honor of Pride week, we?re celebrating the inclusive idea that love is love with something that lasts a lifetime.”

While this marketing campaign may sound sincere, many people are offended by it:
