Wedding Planner: Would You Get Married at Ikea?

While this might not be for everyone (or for most anyone), I'm sure there are some Ikea addicts out there who will be charmed by the prospect of getting married at the big blue store.

The Ikea "I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do" Want to Get Married at the Mamma Mia! The Movie Wedding Event Couples Search (whoo! that's a mouthful, huh?) will take place on July 17th, a day before Universal Pictures' release of Mamma Mia! The Movie. Twenty couples will be selected to renew vows or get married at the Ikea Burbank store. Ikea has you covered — everything from the reception, justice of the peace, entertainment, and cake. Just bring yourself and up to 16 of your closest friends.

What else do you get? Well, there's a $500 Ikea gift card, other assorted, unnamed goodies, and a pre-screening of Mamma Mia! The Movie, You can complete the entry form until June 10th, telling Ikea why you'd like to get married, renew your vows, or participate in a commitment ceremony.

So tell me, are you tempted by this offer?

I just entered on a whim, but to renew my vows, not to get married. I think it would be nice eventually to renew my vows in the church, but for now this wouldn't be bad.

Hey, that's my Ikea! This is very interesting because about 15 years ago a good friend of mine worked for Micheal's Craft store in Encino. In June they were having a wedding fair to exhibit their vendors and ideas, etc. They choose an employee to get married in the middle of the fair.. it turned out to be my friend. They got a horse & carriage ride into the parking lot.. friends & family were invited.. the bride could have brides maids and the whole nine! I was in the wedding and although it was a bit weird being in a parking lot, it was still a lovely wedding!

Why strive for Ikea? Surely Sears, or better yet, Dollar General or Wawa would gladly take care of your wedding, nevermind this fancy-pants Ikea, just invite you and your closest family! I don't think so. Also, what's with the 'dress' the bride is wearing? It's so low cut and plain, it looks like lingerie!
