Dubai couple weds in the Metaverse

Florian Ughetto, a French national residing in Dubai and his fiancee, Liz Nunez, are planning to wed in the metaverse on May 19, after encountering legal difficulties registering their marriage.

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.

The report also said the soon-to-be husband and wife would go to a location in the metaverse for the after-wedding party.

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.
