McNuggets, McChicken, Mc...Weddings?


Weddings, weddings, weddings... that's all that's been on my mind lately. During the first two weeks of being engaged, everything was blissful and fun... but now that i'm starting to crunch numbers, it's starting to get a little stressful. 

Yesterday, I found the perfect answer to our wedding on a budget problem when a friend of mine shared a news article about McDonalds now hosting weddings! = McWeddings! (read full article here)

I can see it all now... 
  • We'd get married under the big arches
  • Chicken nuggets as appetizers
  • A burger of your choice + french fries as the main entree (you may supersize... don't worry, it's on us) 
  • McFlurry for dessert
  • A "Happy Meal" shaped cake to cut
  • Happy meal toys as wedding favors
As much as the money savings and the uniqueness appeals to me... i hope you all know i'm joking. . . or am i? ;P 

If you had to choose, which fast food restaurant would you have your wedding & reception at?

I read about this the other day!! I can't imagine getting married at McDonald's, at least here in the States. I know they have some locations in other countries that are much fancier, so maybe it could work, lol!

Oh, that sounds fun!!!

It is your wedding, so i will say do whatever you want to!!!

Wedding, i think is something special that you cannot imagine from now. I did what I want to in my way, and it came out perfect!

So, whenever you cannot find the answer, you can believe in yourself ;) There is no right or wrong because it will be in your color on the big day!!!

Prolly Burger King for me! I had a McDonalds cake for my birthday once and it was DELICIOUS! I was really young but I still remember how awesome it tasted!

(Judging by that picture..are you thinking of curling your hair for the wedding? haha.)

Kym!!! I cannot even believe McWeddings exist....
But if I had to choose a fast food restaurant to have my wedding at, I would choose... Fazolis or Noodles. Both Italian places. YUM!! Actually, that's not such a bad idea not that I think about it...

Carrie said...

haha this is too funny but it's definitely an interesting idea. If I had to pick, it would be McDonalds as well. I love their french fries!!!

Also, good luck with all the wedding planning. I'm helping my sister plan hers and I know how stressful it can be. Hang in there! It will be worth it.

Trish said...

IN N OUT!!!!!!!!!!! ahhaha =D i've recently fallen in love with the animal fries coz i never liked caramelized onions before, but now i do XD

Butakimu said...

omg...hahahahha...my friend used to joke about getting married at McD. I can't believe it's for real now.

Oh and congrats on your engagement! It must still be exciting despite the number crunching no?

What kind of wedding theme will you be having? ^-^

I guess if I must pick a fast food restaurant...probably McD. lol. I really like their nuggets & hamburgers.

I've been reading it on Twitter and wanted to finally congratulate you and your husband-to-be! Weddings are all around stressful, but can also be fun when you have enough time to plan within your budget. A McWedding is definitely within budget hehe. I'm guessing you went to the wedding show at the Convention Center? :)

jessonwordpress said...

Hahahah! Well then, I'd go for a Jollibee-sponsored wedding. You know, so there's more food to choose from. I mean, PALABOK, who can say no to that? :)

C. said...

THe idea of a Mc Wedding is so depressing ! I'd rather not marry :p

Totchii said...

oh wow!haha. I think I'd choose In-N-Out! or maybe subway xD

Kayla said...

I would pick chick-fil-a. But thankfully I have a mom that's a caterer so that probably won't have.

My friend was telling me about the weddings at Mcds in HK and suggested my other friend get married there hahaha (of course she was joking =] ) I don't think I can choose one for myself lol

de.lizzy.cious said...

hmmmmmm. tough choice. huhuhuhahaha.

please don't kym :)

H. said...

OMG !!
Well i think a wedding in McDonald is really, really unexpected. It'll be fun if happen.
Well if i could choose a fast food restaurant to have my wedding will be Burger King, or not, well i don't know.

have a nice week !!

Little Miss Tiara said...

omg lol, wouldn't that be lovely for such mcD fans? Haha... I have never seen it before so lololol... seriously Kym, would you have your wedding a mcWedding one? :d

that'd make mcD your memorable place, heheh...

RicAdeMus said...

Well, Buger King has that great onion ring sauce and they are happy to let you "have it your way", but it's hard to top the golden arches as a backdrop for your wedding photos. =)

MKL said...

I would only choose a fast food restaurant to marry, if someone put a fully loaded gun on my head. And I would choose a pizza place, I guess. Prefer pizza over burgers :)

MissA* said...

I honestly cannot imagine a wedding at McDonald's or Burger King. Both my parents and in-laws (especially my MIL) would kill us if we did that back in July *lol* BUT... If I really had to choose, I'd go for Burger King.

Kalmo said...

LOL I guess you can have Walmart weddings, why not one at the fast food place. I guess I would pick McDonalds as there is actually one in NY that is sit down with waiters.

izumi said...

hahaha oh gosh. um.. if i had to choose a place.. maybe my new recent love, chick-fil-a. ahah. trying to think of a fast food place with decent variety. WHO KNOWS. the idea of it kind of turns me off :P even though it IS really nice and cheap -- still!
