If you're looking to have the kind of wedding that would be your mother's worst nightmare, then go ahead let Uber marry you this weekend.

On Saturday, in honor of Gay Pride, the always-controversial car-sharing service Uber is offering free on-demand marriage ceremonies for couples who are feeling a certain level of spontaneity.

Here's Uber's step-by-step instructions on how to get married tie the knot in a low-budget, yet high-tech way:

  • Come Saturday between noon and 6 p.m., go to the UberWEDDING app and drop a pin on the location where you and your partner would like to tie the knot.

  • Wait for your wedding to arrive.

  • If you haven't had time to pen your own vows, no worries, your Uber driver will provide them for you. But do make sure you have all the documents necessary to get your marriage license.

  • When your UberWEDDING arrives, the company's on-site notary will help you obtain your marriage license.

  • Next, the violinist will begin to play and you will walk down the "aisle" surrounded by flowers;

  • After saying "I Do" the happy couples will cheers with champagne and cake.

  • Uber promises to wrap up the wedding within 60 minutes.

Your wedding can be as large or as intimate as you'd like, so let your family and friends know if you intend to request. In the spirit of the season, there's no charge for the ceremony and your honeymoon is covered, too. Demand may be high, so if you're not confirmed on the first try, keep at it!

In the weeks after your nuptials, our friends at HotelTonight and Alaska Airlines are providing flights and accommodations for your honeymoon. They're proud to help you celebrate your marriage with the person you're sharing your new life with.

No word on whether Uber will be offering on-demand divorces soon.

  • Permanent Residents

    San Francisco is not just skin deep to these folks — it's a permanent resident of their bodies and souls. They may be scattered far and wide — everywhere from Bernal Heights to Brooklyn, El Paso, Tokyo, and beyond — but the one thing these self-defined San Franciscans all share is a deep commitment to the city by the Bay.
