Who would have guessed it but McDonald's is becoming a popular wedding venue for many people in Hong Kong, according to reports.
Since 2011, McDonald's locations in Hong Kong have offered wedding services for brides- and grooms-to-be; initially just three stores offered the services, but that number has since grown to 15.
The package appears to not only offer the wedding venue, but the restaurants also allow couples to celebrate their anniversaries, engagements and bridal showers.
We started the program because many customers tell us that McDonald's is where they first started dating...McDonald's is where their love stories grew," McDonald's spokeswoman Jessica Lee told CNBC.com. "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."
This service costs HK$10,000 ($1,290), you and your significant other could swap onion rings as part of a Love Forever Party.
"The deluxe version includes a 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 more."
In response to whether this might be expanded to other countries in the future, a spokeswoman for McDonald's notes that for now, this service is exclusive to Hong Kong.
