Would you like a marriage with those fries? Hong Kong McDonald’s have added something new to their menus – weddings. The $400 package includes ceremony, reception and apple pie wedding cake. You’ll have to toast with Coca-Cola instead of champagne though. Alcohol is prohibited in family-friendly restaurants in Hong Kong.
But just because people can doesn’t necessarily mean people will, right? Wrong. A rep for the golden arches confirms:
“Over the past two years, we’ve started receiving calls from people who want to have a wedding party in our restaurants. There are about 10 calls a month.”
“People said they’d dated here, or met here, and wanted to get married here. We see this as a business opportunity.”
McDonald’s weddings are currently exclusive to Hong Kong, but could become the global juggernaut that you are already picturing in your mind. Now you’ll have a new way to break your mother’s heart all over again by hosting your gay wedding at McDonald’s! We joke, we joke.
Would you ever consider a McDonald’s wedding?
