If you're looking to have the kind of wedding that would be your mother's worst nightmare, then go ahead let Uber marry you this weekend.

On Saturday, in honor of Gay Pride, the always-controversial car-sharing service Uber is offering free on-demand marriage ceremonies for couples who are feeling a certain level of spontaneity.

Here's Uber's step-by-step instructions on how to get married tie the knot in a low-budget, yet high-tech way:

  • Come Saturday between noon and 6 p.m., go to the UberWEDDING app and drop a pin on the location where you and your partner would like to tie the knot.

  • Wait for your wedding to arrive.

  • If you haven't had time to pen your own vows, no worries, your Uber driver will provide them for you. But do make sure you have all the documents necessary to get your marriage license.

  • When your UberWEDDING arrives, the company's on-site notary will help you obtain your marriage license.

  • Next, the violinist will begin to play and you will walk down the "aisle" surrounded by flowers;

  • After saying "I Do" the happy couples will cheers with champagne and cake.

  • Uber promises to wrap up the wedding within 60 minutes.

Your wedding can be as large or as intimate as you'd like, so let your family and friends know if you intend to request. In the spirit of the season, there's no charge for the ceremony and your honeymoon is covered, too. Demand may be high, so if you're not confirmed on the first try, keep at it!

In the weeks after your nuptials, our friends at HotelTonight and Alaska Airlines are providing flights and accommodations for your honeymoon. They're proud to help you celebrate your marriage with the person you're sharing your new life with.

No word on whether Uber will be offering on-demand divorces soon.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
