LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Big lavish weddings aren’t in style right now. That’s because the global pandemic has couples rethinking their plans.

A new Las Vegas business is offering a unique way to scale back wedding ceremonies in light of COVID-19.

I Do Drive Thru Weddings is an Australian based company that’s branching out in Las Vegas. They host elopements and tiny weddings.

Here’s how it works: you can choose your own adventure. Jump into a limo, vintage vehicle, or anything on wheels and head to a special spot to say “I do.” You can even walk to your destination, if that’s your preference.

“This is how I Do Drive Thru came to be as we realized getting married is still absolutely an essential business,” said Berlynn Holdmann, lead officiant in Las Vegas. “It can be done within the limitations and guidelines that are being enforced with social distancing measures.”

Couples can skip the cost of a venue, DJ, and catering costs, making this an affordable option. You’ll dish out closer to $400, Holdmann said.

There’s an option to live stream your ceremony so loved ones can be a part of the celebration from a distance.

I Do Drive Thru’s website says they will offer a full refund in the event of a total lockdown.
