So where will weddings take place next? Who would have ever thought that McDonald's would be in the wedding business?

I've heard of couples hosting weddings in a backyard, old barn, vineyard, catering hall, field, beach, top of a mountain, park, and so on, however, with couples tying the knot in Home Depot, Target and other out of the way places why not have your wedding reception at McDonalds?

Well, people in Hong Kong can now have McWeddings, a McDonald's wedding.  As of January 1, 2011 McDonalds offered McWeddings packages including McDonald's food, pink invitation cards with the Golden Arches, a baked apple pie wedding cake, a dress made out of party balloons and kiddie party favors for guests.  The cost in Hong Kong dollars is equivalent to $128 US dollars with the actual cost depending upon what your guests order.

The first formal ceremony (imagine saying your vows under the Golden Arch's) took place on Valentine's Day in downtown Hong Kong near the financial district.

Many couples meet, have dates and fall in love in the fast food chain so the concept of marrying with hamburgers and fries is considered OK.

Mickey D's reception will not permit alcohol, since the fast food restaurant wants to ensure that the guests don't get inebriated and act inappropriately in their family restaurant.  So who needs a drink when you can toast with a premium iced coffee?

McDonald's in Hong Kong is not closing the restaurant to other patrons while your reception is taking place, so you will have many onlookers and well wishers who could also be party crashers or party delights!

If you're not into spending a lot of money on your wedding and having a McDonald Wedding excites you, go to your nearest Mickey D's and talk to the Manager about hosting your wedding there.

For your edification on 2/20/2011 I contacted McDonald's in Hazlet, NJ and was told they have no plans (at this time) to host weddings. I also asked if any information was available from their corporate headquarters and was told that no plans were in the works at this time. I called McDonald's headquarters in the U. S. and they confirmed that they still do not have plans to host weddings in the United States.
