Taco Bell wants to turn those wedding bells you're hearing into—you guessed it—taco bells. The Tex-Mex fast-food chain recently opened a new Las Vegas Cantina flagship restaurant, and in true Vegas fashion, the venue comes complete with a chapel. And because it's Vegas, where everything is bigger and brighter, Taco Bell is holding a glitzy contest to determine the first couple to get married in the chapel when it opens in summer 2017.
The Love & Tacos Contest actually comes with so many awesome perks that you may forget you're saying your wedding vows in a fast-food joint. The winning couple will get airfare for six to Vegas, a free ceremony and officiant, a Taco Bell dinner, Taco Bell–themed wedding gear (T-shirts, champagne flutes, a garter, and a bow tie), professional photography and videography, a room and private pool cabana at the Planet Hollywood Hotel, two tickets to the High Roller ferris wheel at LINQ, a VIP table for six at Drai's club, and a spa day with bae at Qua Baths and Spa. Taco Bell will also livestream the nuptials. Sign us up.
And the cheese on top of the taco? The flagship location is way nicer than your average TB: It boasts modern design, an open kitchen, beer, a gift shop, and patio seating, plus it's open 24/7. So even if you don't win, you can roll through anytime to elope amongst the Nachos Bell Grandes.
"From sauce packet proposals to couples catering their wedding parties and after-parties with Taco Bell, we have known for years that some of our most creative fans have been incorporating Taco Bell into this momentous occasion," said Marisa Thalberg, chief marketing officer at Taco Bell Corp., in a statement obtained by Brides. "Now, through our new flagship restaurant on the Las Vegas Strip, couples can come right in and order a wedding off of our menu. In a town known for pulling out all of the stops, we think this will be the most crave-able matrimonial experience to ever hit Vegas."
To enter the Love & Tacos Contest, just share a photo or 30-second video about Taco Bell's role in your love story on Twitter or Instagram, with the hashtag #LoveAndTacosContest. You have from Valentine's Day to February 26 to enter, and the winning couple will be announced on March 16.
So stock up on those hot-sauce packets and get cracking!
