"Marry You" was released in 2010 as part of Mars' debut album, Doo-Wops & Hooligans. The song was written by Mars, Philip Lawrence, and Ari Levine, who are collectively known as The Smeezingtons. The song was inspired by a scene from the movie The Hangover, where a group of friends get drunk and end up getting married in Las Vegas.
