This Company Organizes Fake Weddings For Young People Who Don't Want To Actually Get Married

The experience of getting married, but with zero commitment.

Posted on

The company was created by a group of friends who realized that the aversion to marriage among twenty- and thirtysomethings meant a large number of young people had never attended a wedding.

The parties are all about the key wedding details: A bridal couple who re-enact marriage vows in front of the guests.

And hundreds of other wedding guests who have paid to be there.

"Once, a group of guys came to a Falsa Boda​. They arrived a day before the party, pretending to celebrate a 'Fake Bachelor Party'. It consisted of picking a 'Fake Groom' and going from bar to bar celebrating and having fun all night long."

"We went there because one of my partners’ sister is a pro tango dancer and at that moment, she was dancing in Moscow," De Girolamo said. "She told to the owner of a dance hall about what we do and he loved the idea, so we started our journey."
