Dubai Couple Ties the Knot in the Metaverse

by Terence Zimwara
A Dubai based couple has decided to be wed in the metaverse after legal problems stemming from their nationalities initially forced them to tie the knot in Georgia in 2019. After the wedding, the couple said they will use their own experience to help others get married in the metaverse as well.
After encountering legal troubles registering their marriage, Florian Ughetto, a French national residing in Dubai and his fiancee, Liz Nunez, were reportedly planning to wed in the metaverse on May 19. The couple said the decision to tie the knot in the metaverse comes nearly three years after they got married in Georgia.
According to a report by the Blockchain Group, the couple’s wedding outfits were acquired via Opensea, a non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace. The report also said 20 of the couple’s closest friends would join them via the metaverse.
Explaining the steps that the couple will take exchanging vows, the report said the soon-to-be husband and wife would go to a location in the metaverse for the after-wedding party.

Metaverse Wedding Company

As per the report, the couple got married in Georgia in 2019 after they encountered problems registering their union locally due to their nationalities.
“That is one of the reasons why we chose to fly to Georgia to register our marriage,” the report quotes Ughetto explaining.
Meanwhile, the report said the couple has since established their wedding planning company that will specialize in virtual weddings. The couple hopes to use their metaverse wedding experience as a test run.
While the final cost of the ceremony has not been revealed, the report estimates this to be over $800 or DH3,000.
