Dig Local Asheville, NC

Where to Go, What to Do, Everyday

Dig Local - Weekly Scoop, July 16 - 27 

Looking to get hitched? Well even if you’re not, you may be interested in this... Fleetwood’s “Married for a Weekend” package lets you have a totally fake wedding with anyone, or anything, and now that we’ve got you on the edge of your seat, let’s take a look at everything Fleetwood’s has to offer.

Fleetwood’s Rock-n-Roll Chapel opened in the fall of 2017, built on a shared vision between old friends. They set out to create what was missing in Asheville, a mix of Rock and Roll, beer, vintage style, and weddings. Their mission is to offer rad vintage items, tasty beverages, live entertainment, and an inexpensive alternative to a courthouse wedding!

Let’s revisit their “Married for a Weekend” package. Fleetwood’s offers everything you could ever need for a proper wedding including churchy-looking-stained-glass windows. From wedding attire, to rings, and even a certificate, it’s certifiable. With a beer in hand and the local band playing, you might even feel like getting married by the end of the night. To top it off the quick ceremonies have vibes of a little bit of Prince mixed with some Flash Gordon, making it way more fun than actually getting married, with no real commitment! The folks at Fleetwood's love the creativity that surrounds our city and are thrilled to be a part of what makes Asheville unique.
