Some couples in Hong Kong are opting to hold their weddings in a rather unconventional venue — McDonald’s.
The global fast-food chain first launched its wedding package a few years back due to strong demand from the wedding market. McDonald’s spokesperson explained that many couples wanted to hold their weddings there because that was “where their love story grew”.
“This connection is exactly why they want to hold their wedding parties and even anniversary parties at McDonald’s — to relive sweet beginnings and bring their romantic story full circle.”
McDonald’s deluxe wedding package, which includes a two-hour venue rental, 50 McDonaldland character gifts, two McDonald’s balloon wedding rings, an MC, decorations, and more, ranges from $373 to $1,290. Considering that most weddings cost at least a five-figure sum these days, McDonald’s certainly offers a sweet deal for the budget-conscious couples out there.
For those of you who similarly hold nostalgic memories of McDonald’s dates (who still remembers first dates at the East Coast Park McDonald’s?), don’t be too disappointed as this special wedding package is currently only available in Hong Kong. But who knows if it might come to a McDonald’s outlet near you if enough couples request for the same package?
