First, each team will take an all-expenses-paid trip on the Love Boat Launch before sprinting down the aisle on the Springivator, which will lead them to the wedding crashing Big Balls. Players will then have a wedding cake tasting in the Wipeout Kitchen before heading to the wedding chapel-themed challenge.
