It’s Too Late for Me…

…but perhaps you can have your wedding at McDonald’s!

Listening to NPR on a recent commute, I heard a news story that I just had to share with the hive—McDonald’s now offers wedding packages for the Big Mac loving bride and groom!

To be honest, it seems like quite a steal. Here is what you get for the low, low price of $400:

1. Ceremony and reception space at the home of the golden arches (though they won’t close the restaurant for you [the McNugget addicts need their fix, even if it is your wedding day]).


2. Catering for up to 100 guests. Let the french (fry) kisses and then milkshake dancing commence!

(Source for both)

3. A wedding dress made of twisty balloons (extra charge for lotion caused by the inevitable chaffing).

I’m actually really smitten with the blue dress and the skirt on the red one. (Source)

4. A wedding cake tower made of warm apple pies.

That gent on the right is super pumped! (Source)

5. Plus, they’ll provide all your guests with kiddie toys as wedding favors!

(Source for 1, 2, 3)

The package deal really adds up to one sweet (and salty and greasy) deal, don’t you think?

Would you ever get married at a fast food joint? Where would you pick?

I think I would go with Wendy’s and have a fountain that endlessly flows with chocolate frosty!

    And then you can take home a commemorative big mac that will last the length of your marriage since they don’t ever disintegrate!

    er.. decompose I guess is a better word than disintegrate. But you get my drift… an anniversary burger that the couple can pull out 20 years later and it’s still the original from their wedding! How.. umm.. romantic?

    I’d do Dairy Queen or Tim Hortons.
    Reason: A ton of our early dates were at DQ, and he is obsessed with Timmies coffee.

    I’m just waiting for the teasing to commence from my family after this makes the rounds on the internet. I love Mc Donalds more than I care to admit, I’ve never celebrated any life event there, but I certainly wouldn’t rule out McD’s as an post reception snack. Haha!

    I mis-read that, I thought you said “Or have I been puked”. It’s ok that you didn’t though . . . I did it for you 😛

    Oh gosh…these photos terrify me!!!

    Well, since I don’t really eat fast food, I’d have to say Chipotle as well (that isn’t fast food right? Well, it is “fast” but it isn’t processed)! That, or Mr. Buttons would request Chic-Fil-A…endless boxes of chicken biscuits!

    I think it’s your wedding, and anything goes. I would never do it, my family is too big for most places, lol. I would totally go for Qdoba or Panera if I was doing it! We have lots of dates at Qdoba because they have a rewards program. I would do it on a Sunday, you get triple points. We would have more free burritos than we could ever eat, lol.

    Down where Mr. G and I went to college, some locals got married at the Taco Bell! It made the newspaper and everything!

    We drove past Hardees in our neighborhood one day and there was a wedding wrapping up, they even tied Hardees cups to the back of the getaway car.
