If you considered that chicken nugget goop to be an aphrodisiac of the most romantic kind, then start looking up flights to Hong Kong for next year. McDonalds' weddings may be alcohol-free, but at least Ronald will be in attendance.

Sure, some couples have ambushed McDonalds and even Taco Bell with their wedding ceremonies, but Hong Kong will be the first country to actually offer the full official package, at prices of around $260 and up for the whole shebang.

Couples can expect a custom wedding cake made from either apple pie or even burgers, plus the guests' choice of meal deals. Here's hoping the couple's love lasts equally as long as the average McDonalds happy meal left out to rot.

McDonald's To Make Wedding Cakes

October 15, 2010

Beginning January 1, 2011, McDonald locations in Hong Kong are to offer on-site wedding ceremonies with menu option meals complete with your choice of a wedding cake, made of apple pie or even burgers.

McDonald's Hong Kong director of corporate communications and relations Helen Cheung Yuen-ling said, according to the South China Morning Post on October 10, "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.

"People said they'd dated here, or met here, and wanted to get married here ... We see this as a business chance."

Many fast food chains have catered individual weddings in the past including Burger King, Taco Bell plus there is a small following of self-towered wedding cakes made with Krispy Kreme donuts, however McDonald's Hong Kong is the world's first to actively promote wedding services and cakes.

A McWedding would cost about HK$ 2000-3000 (185-278) and include a set menu or the possibility for guests to order during the event, a cake and gifts. Plus, in keeping with tradition French fries will replace the customary cherries "for the newlyweds to eat together and kiss."

Wedding toasts will have to be alcohol-free and Ronald McDonald may attend as well as a host of other strangers since business will continue as usual.
