McWedding - I'm Loving Her or Him
Would you like fries with your bride?
Starting in January 2011, you will be able to tie the knot at McDonalds locations in Hong Kong. Helen Cheung Yuen, director of corporate communications in Hong Kong was reported in South China Morning Post on October 10th as saying "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 chance."
A McWedding would cost about HK$ 2000-3000 (€185-278) and include a set menu or the possibility for guests to order during the event, a cake and gifts. Plus, in keeping with tradition French fries will replace the customary cherries "for the newlyweds to eat together and kiss."
McDonald’s Hong Kong will also be accepting bookings for engagement parties and wedding anniversary parties. Maybe for an extra fee, Ronald McDonald could be the best man.Hong Kong Phooey - She really is a super bride!
