First off, this is serious. There is really a contest for people to enter, that will give them their wedding ceremony at an Aldi's location and they will also give the winner (aka happy couple) $5000 in Aldi gift cards to spend on groceries.

Aldi's has a special website set up where you can enter your and your partner's info as to why you deserve to be joined in holy matrimony next to the Stroopwafels, and Peanut Butter Pretzels.

So, would Aldi just host the ceremony and leave you on the hook for the reception?

As an Aldi "Super Fan" they would not just say get married here and then Adios. Wait, it's a German company so Tschuss or Auf Wiedersehen. They would also treat you and your 50 guests to a small reception featuring food items that are from Aldi, including a wedding cake made with ingredients from their store.

So, you going to apply? Do it! Then let us know that you applied. We would also love to hear your story!
