I wonder what took so long?
In a city where you can commit matrimony officiated by none other than The King in a drive-through chapel, why wouldn't you want to give serious consideration to tying the knot at Taco Bell's 24-hour Las Vegas strip Cantina? Heck, you could even book it for Taco Tuesday and look outrageously sophisticated.
It all starts this summer for taco loving couples ready for some serious re-fried romance.
Taco Bell's more than reasonable $600 wedding package includes Taco Bell champagne flutes (Who knew?), "Just Married" t-shirts, a Taco Bell bow tie and garter, a Cinnabon Delights wedding cake and a wedding bouquet for the bride made entirely of hot sauce packets. Also included in the hitching piñata is a full blown ceremony presided over by any officiant you care to ordain. (In Vegas this can be accomplished in as little as four hours. For example: I, Reverand Ken, am ordained at the Bookie Buster Discount House of Worship & Lingerie.)
To kick off this new promotion Taco Bell is sponsoring a contest for couples that requires them to share a photo or 30-second video explaining how Taco Bell played a part in their big romance. Add the hashtag #LoveAndTacosContest and fans will vote on their favorite stories; then beginning March 1st judges will choose the winning couple. The winners will receive an all expense paid trip to...LAS VEGAS! including a honeymoon suite at a local hotel and an order of chalupas with a side of "oh baby, do that to me one more time."

On the surface this seems like a fairly well thought out promotional vehicle for Taco Bell. Most guys, if given the chance, would gladly trade a traditional wedding wingding for a $600 blowout at Taco Bell, however, I do see one big problem. How do you get the potential bride drunk enough to make this seem like her dream wedding? Remember she has been watching movies like Tammy & and the Bachelor, Father of the Bride, and Sleepless in Seattle since she was a little girl. Good luck peddling hot sauce bouquets and Taco Bell garter belts to well, uh...just about any female you know.
Maybe the executives at the Bell need to give this a little more think time. Perhaps adding a jumbo order of re-fried beans for those traditional wedding night Dutch ovens?
Yeah, maybe that's a guy thing.
