McDonald’s In Hong Kong Offers Wedding Parties For Less Than $400 And This Couple Tried It Out

Every couple has their own vision of the perfect wedding. And in Hong Kong, a surprisingly popular choice to have your ‘happily ever after’ is McDonald’s. The company there offers four different packages, ranging in cost from about $380 to $1275.

The Happiness Party, which is the cheapest option, provides newlyweds with a two-hour venue rental along with basic audio equipment and the services of a master of ceremonies.

On the other end of the spectrum, the deluxe Love Forever Party includes a two-hour venue rental, two McDonald’s balloon wedding rings, a balloon bridal bouquet, and a party MC. The decorations come with a romantic roses balloon arch, a heart-shaped balloon set, and a ‘love’ balloon table runner.

To see what all the fuss is about, recently engaged social media personality Safiya Nygaard, 26, traveled to Asia with her fiance Tyler Williams to experience it first hand.

While she made it clear that this was not her actual wedding, Safiya clarified that she was intrigued by the fact that many people in Hong Kong choose to host their wedding at the fast-food restaurant.

McDonald’s spokesperson Jessica Lee explained that the idea for these offers started because the company occupies a special place in the hearts of many young couples in Hong Kong.

“We started the program because many customers tell us that McDonald’s is where they first started dating,” Ms. Lee told CNBC. “McDonald’s is where their love stories grew.”

“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.”

That’s right, McDonald’s also throws engagement, anniversary, and bridal shower parties.

So far, however, the official wedding party service is exclusive to McDonald’s, Hong Kong. So if you’re thinking about celebrating your big day with a Big Mac, you’ll have to save up for a trip.
