That’s right, kids! Looks like several of Hong Kong’s ”Golden Arches” have upped the ante for wedding vendors everywhere! We’re talking Happy Meal menus, Big Mac attacks and apple pie tower cakes (oh my!)! According to msnbc.com news reports:
If McDonald’s has its way, the traditional white wedding arch will be replaced with the golden ones. Some of the fast-food chain’s restaurants in Hong Kong are now allowing customers to “supersize” their order to include McNuptials. (today.msnbc.msn.com)
And all I can say is, thank GOODness my Mister and I have already taken the plunge… ’cause you already KNOW this would be all over his radar like white on rice! Twenty-seven years old, and the man would still pick the entire McDonald’s menu over everything else. (What this says about my cooking shall remain unmentioned… however, I’m guessing assumptions are already being made. Eh.)
Anyhoot, the world’s most recognized restaurant – ha, there’s just something about calling Mickey D’s a “restaurant” that will always be funny to me – is officially open for wedding business and already booking January 2011 weddings!!! Offering an appetizing spread of Happy Meal favors, apple pie tower wedding cakes, their full menu of meal deals and even party balloon dresses, Ronald and his crew have pulled out all the stops… well, and by “all the stops,” I really mean doing the same stops, mayhaps with just a few more stairs :)
What would really impress me is – however – is if they would offer different levels of packages. Let’s say Small, Medium, Large and Supersize??? Supersize, of course, containing the option of a Ronald McDonald minister! Yep, who’s with me!?!?! <waits for high fives>…<still waiting>… Alright, forget it! <high fives self> Yes!
However, there are a few things you may want to consider before booking your flights and jumping on board this dream wedding scenario. Chief among them?? Exclusivity. Even though Hong Kong’s Golden Arches are open for wedding business, they are not closing their doors to the rest of the world. So tourist Two Buck Chuck and his sweet lady friend, Sideburns Susie, just may have a cameo in the wedding album while they get their order on during your vows. Just saying…
Also, McDonald’s is a family establishment lacking a liquor license; therefore, NO ALCOHOL is allowed on the premise. Sorry, crazy beer guzzling uncles, you’ll have to settle for strawberry shakes instead. Other reports also suggest substituting the champagne toasts with soda… Classy!
So, if any of you are planning this for your wedded bliss, feel free to invite me! And with all the money you’ll be saving on catering and rental equipment, you can even fly me out! Haha… but for reals :)
