Starbucks weddings start trendingFebruary 3, 2015
When you search the hashtag #StarbucksWedding on Twitter, you’ll be greeted by couples appearing to have their wedding celebrations in various Starbucks coffee houses.
The trend seems to happening primarily in the U.S, with hundreds of newlyweds posing for photos in a Starbucks.
Whether ceremonies are being held there remains unknown.
However, Inc. has claimed the whole thing is a marketing ploy created by the coffee giants themselves.
Starbucks CMO, Sharon Rothstein said: “We are always delighted to hear how our customers are using our stores to share important life moments, big and small.”
Just in time for Valentine’s Day Starbucks stores in the U.S are hosting “The World’s Largest Starbucks Date” on February 13 2015, which will offer couples a special pairings menu and other romantic experiences.
The event has been organised in partnership with the coffee company and Match.com.
While the U.S is sparking the trend for Starbucks weddings, we think it may not catch on in the UK.
