McWeddings: fast food for couples who are seriously “lovin’ it”

When I lived in China a few years ago, I noticed that McDonald’s there was significantly classier than those in the US.  They were clean, bright, fresh and — because they were Western — somehow modern.  So it wasn’t unusual for a guy to take a girl to McDee’s for a first date, or for students to chill out and study there for a couple hours.  But starting in January next year, Hong Kong will be taking it up another notch — for about $260, couples can purchase a McDonald’s wedding ceremony package.

Yup, people actually want to get married with Double Cheeseburgers, Chicken McNuggets and good ole Ronald McDonald.  The wedding package even comes with a cake made of apple pie or burgers.  Yum.

“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,” McDonald’s Hong Kong director of corporate communications and relations Helen Cheung Yuen-ling told the South China Morning Post. “People said they’d dated here, or met here, and wanted to get married here.”

Hmm… which would you choose: a wedding at McDonald’s or the Apple Store?

    If any of my friends suggested to their girlfriends about getting married in Maccas or in an Apple Store, I’m certain they won’t live to see daylight again.
