Dammit Taco Bell, I got married 4+ years ago. Why didn’t you have wedding gear then?!— Alison (@alphabet_soup9) July 2, 2018
The Taco Bell wedding collection isn’t totally out of left field. A year ago, Taco Bell announced that it would allow couples to tie-the-knot at its flagship Las Vegas Cantina Restaurant. Since then, more than 60 couples have gotten hitched in the chapel there. “From the couple who flew all the way from China to our very first wedding with Dan and Bianca, the Taco Bell chapel has been the site for 60 of the trendiest, sauciest and hottest ceremonies, with 25 additional ceremonies planned for this wedding season,” the company said in a statement. “Don’t believe us? You can flip through our wedding photo album with some of our favorites here.”
Encouraged by what it says was the better-than-expected response, Taco Bell decided to make wedding-themed promotional products available to anyone who wants them – whether they get married at the Vegas cantina or not.
Taco Bell also expanded the chapel/party room at the Vegas location.
