Weddings: now with added class, fries

14 Oct

Somewhat scary news out of Hong Kong today that McDonalds now offers, wait for it, wedding packages.

Hong Kong will be the first city in the world to roll out McDonald’s nuptial packages for couples starting January 1 next year.  The package has all the details to attract a wedding banquet cynic or a Golden Arches obsessive: a baked apple pie wedding cake, dress made out of party balloons, kiddie party favors for guests, and of course, catering by McDonald’s.

I’m actually kind of surprised its taken them this long to cash in on the most special of special days, but I reckon they could have gone further.  Happy Meal toys are just begging to be upgraded to bonbonerie status for one, while nothing says ‘professional wedding’ more than matching branded cutlery, table decorations and serviettes.  Plus there’s a whole side industry available for printing Hamburgler style invitations.

And fair play to the couple who went for it; hell, if its a sentimental spot for you why wouldn’t you do it there?!

    I wonder if the ice cream cake comes with a little bride and groom on top.
