For those of you interested in getting hitched (aka married) in a hurry, you may want to consider the AutoWed Wedding Machine. The folks at Concept Shed created AutoWed so couples could have a quick and cheap solution to marriage.
Autowed: How Does It Work?
Getting married using the AutoWed machine is easy. Just make sure you bring some spare change because it only accepts coins. So grab your quarters and your partner, and go to the nearest AutoWed wedding machine for a quick “I do.” For $1.00 you not only get matching wedding bands, but you also receive a custom marriage certificate. So romantic!
Is The AutoWed Machine Real?
Is AutoWed real? Yep. Initially, it was just a joke. But then people started wanting to buy them. The first customer was an American museum called Marvin’s Marvelous Mechanical Museum. They commissioned the Cornwall-based creative team at Concept Shed to make a real functioning version of the wedding machine.
Although the AutoWed vending machine is real, its marriage certificates are not. They aren’t legally binding and are just fun novelty souvenirs.
What Will Your Partner Think Of AutoWed?
Warning: AutoWed has the emotional capacity of an 8-foot tall parking meter and looks like a cheap dollhouse. It’s basically the fast food version of romance!
