Fancy ordering a wedding celebration with a side of fries? Well, now you can. That’s right, Hong Kong is the only city in the world where you can host an official McDonald’s wedding party.

Of all the weird and wonderful things you can do in Hong Kong, hosting your wedding reception at McDonald’s probably takes the crown. Due to customer demand, the fast food chain launched its wedding party service in Hong Kong in 2011 and it’s been all the rage ever since.

Couples can choose from a total of four different wedding packages, ranging in price from HK$2,999 (US$380) for the ‘Happiness Party’ to HK$9,999 (US$1,275) for the ‘Love Forever Party’. The most expensive package includes venue rental for two hours, a pair of McDonald’s balloon wedding rings, character gifts for 50 guests, 50 pieces of invitation cards and thank you cards, a party MC, and even a McDonald’s apple pie wedding cake display.

Since launching in 2011, the wedding program has expanded from three restaurants to over 15 and continues to grow in popularity. Jessica Lee, a spokesperson for McDonald’s, told CNBC: ‘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.’

Lee added. ‘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.’

So there you have it, proof that love can blossom in the most unexpected places – even in McDonald’s.

Currently, the wedding party service is something unique to McDonald’s Hong Kong. So if you fancy celebrating your big day ‘Big Mac’ style, a trip to Hong Kong it will have to be.
