HONG KONG (KRON) — Fast food is temporary but marriage is forever.
That’s the lesson for a growing number of people in Hong Kong who are competing for a limited number of slots to hold their wedding and receptions at the local McDonald’s.
McDonald’s offered the wedding party program starting three years ago first in a trio of restaurants but recently expanded that to 15 locations.
Officials say they started the program because of the large number of couples who told them they met and nurtured their relationships while sharing a Big Mac and fries.
McDonald’s offers four wedding packages ranging from less than $400 to more than $1,200. The top price gets you 2-hour venue rental, McDonaldland character gifts for 50 guests, 50 invites, wedding gifts, a pair of McD’s balloon wedding rings, bridal bouquet, apple pie cake display, Crystal McDonald’s house, decorations, a MC, and even a balloon hat for the groom.
So far there are no plans to expand McDonald’s weddings outside Hong Kong.
