Wedding at McDonald’s?
Starting in 2011, couples in love will be able to host weddings at any McDonald’s branch in Hong Kong!!
Ever since a couple met at one of Hong Kong’s McDonald’s and wanted to get married there, an idea began. Beginning in January, the upcoming McWeddings will first appear for a test period at three major McDonald’s branches. Their starting price is offered at packages of only HK$1000 ($129) , which is extremely cheap compared to the typical HK$10,000 ($1,300) for a table of 10 in Hong Kong.
Helen Cheung of McDonald’s Hong Kong said that they will offer French fries to replace the traditional custom of wedding couples eating cherries and then kissing. People meet at McDonald’s, date at McDonald’s and some want to get married at McDonald’s.
Included with the reservation is a personalized menu, decorations, McDonald’s-themed gifts, a special apple-pie wedding cake, and a lone fry in place of the traditional cherry a couple shares prior to kissing. The McDonald weddings are designed to be ultra-cheap and fun. However, one down side to getting married at McDonald is that couples aren’t not guaranteed any privacy. Regular customers will also be able to watch the ceremony and there will not be any liquor allowed. On a positive note, it’s cheap, you get get a ton of free Happy Meal toys, and you can have strangers celebrating with you too!
Apparently, only one couple has confirmed their reservation for a McWedding ceremony.
