A few weeks ago, Taco Bell launched a nationwide contest that generated a lot of social media steam. For $600, lucky couples were able to get married inside the fast food chain's chapel in Las Vegas. Complete with a Taco Bell garter and hot sauce bouquet, it was the wedding of (some) people's dreams.
One bride was so enthusiastic about the contest, she designed her own wedding dress...out of burrito wrappers. Imgur user Dianesaurusrex posted a photo of the creative gown with a heartfelt caption about her and her fiance's love for Taco Bell.
"Our love for each other is as cheesy as a quesadilla. We're nachos getting married, it's going to be a Las Vegas tacover," she said creatively.
31-year-old Diane and her fiancé, Nick, have been together for more than 10 years. "Taco Bell has been our go-to comfort food for a really long time and it only seemed appropriate [to get married there]," Diane told Delish.
