Dubai will witness its first metaverse wedding tomorrow, May 19,  as Florian Ughetto and Liz Nunez are all set to tie the knot in Decentraland, a 3D virtual world browser-based platform, thereby redefining the #newnormal movement.

We dreamt of flying [with] our family and friends from France and Paraguay to Dubai to attend our wedding. However, covid and legal hurdles played spoilsport. That is when we decided to take things to metaverse

The Paraguayan bride’s white wedding dress and the French groom’s customized black and brown suit have been purchased from Open Sea, the largest NFT marketplace, for approximately $100. Although the final cost of the wedding isn’t yet available, it is estimated to be around AED 3000.
