Unbelievable but True.  Starting in January 2011, McDonalds in Hong Kong will be offering On-Site Wedding Ceremonies complete with Menu options that include wedding cakes mad out of Apple Pie or even Cheeseburgers. 

The Indepent reports:

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.

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.”

Okay, I don’t know who are the 10 people who were calling a month that prompted this move, but I think that it is safe to say that they need to get out a little more and experience some new things.  I will say this, a Wedding is definitely economic and would cost between $250-650 in America Dollars.  That considered, I think that I would just spend the extra money.  I cannot even imagine how irritated I would be if I receive a piece of Wedding cake that was made out of Cheeseburgers.  I am looking forward to seeing the pics from the first wedding.
