McDonald's Offering $400 Wedding Packages

With folks now getting hitched in Walmarts, Taco Bells and Home Depot, it would make sense that McDonald’s would eventually get around to adding weddings to their menu. And that’s exactly what the fast food chain is doing in Hong Kong, where happy couples will soon be able to say “I do” under the Golden Arches.

Starting in January, Hong Kong McDonald’s will begin selling a package that includes the ceremony, reception, wedding cake and catering for up to 100 people — all for around $400.

A rep for the company says that the wedding package was created in response to public demand:

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.

Unfortunately you won’t be able to have booze at the reception, as local laws forbid alcohol at family-friendly eateries like McDonald’s.

And you will also have plenty of hungry wedding crashers since the restaurants will remain open to the public during the ceremonies.
