KUPO!

If you happen to live in Japan, are a big Final Fantasy XIV fan, and have a wedding coming up, the stars have just aligned in your favor. Square Enix is teaming up with Bridal Hearts to offer a Final Fantasy XIV-themed Wedding Service for prospective couples in the country. The service will allow people to enjoy elements from the game and recreate the "Eternal Bonding Ceremony" with all the proper outfits and decor and legal authority of a wedding.

The full package will include a wedding dress and tuxedo modeled after Final Fantasy XIV's equivalent garbs, various in-game assets recreated for background images and videos, and replicas of the Bride and Groom's weapons of choice. Obviously, music from the popular MMO will be played and a gigantic themed cake will be shared with guests along with a fully catered menu of Final Fantasy food and drink.

A standard plan, which includes the service with 70 guests, will run couples 3.5 million Yen (roughly $31,500). That sounds like a lot, but weddings aren't cheap. The very first ceremony took place on Valentine's Day in Japan and the service will soon be open to the general public for booking. You can view photos from the wedding here (with a few shots uploaded in our gallery).

While I'm surprised this is being offered specifically for Final Fantasy XIV, I think this is a great idea. To certain people, gaming means a lot to their lives. Why not combine your favorite hobby with what should be the happiest day of your life?
