Fake Weddings are Becoming the Hottest Parties for Singles in Argentina

Everyone likes weddings, right? You get to throw on some fancy clothes, eat free food, hit the open bar and dance the night away. What happens when you’ve got an itch to party at a wedding but haven’t received any invites? Argentina has got it all figured out: you and your friends BUY TICKETS to a wedding. Seriously.

It’s called a Falsa Boda.

But there’s no family and friends. Because the attendees are all strangers.

Yes. Young people are buying tickets to party together at a fake wedding.

It’s the brainchild of Martín Acerbi, who launched the Falsa Boda parties with a group of friends. Acerbi told BBC Mundo: “My friends love to organize parties and go out. One day at dinner we realized that we’d never party together at a wedding unless one of us got married… which isn’t really a possibility right now.”

A ticket runs you between $43 and $65. And the weddings are POPULAR.

Sound pricey? The organizers of Falsa Boda – who’ve thrown five “weddings” so far – argue it’s not much different from what someone would spend on dinner and drinks at a nightclub.

And people actually have pretty good reasons for spending their cash on a fake wedding.

For some, it’s got all the positives of a wedding and none of the negatives.
