Lettuce celebrate! You can get married at McDonald's for less than €400

“DO YOU take this man to be your lawfully wedded husband - and do you want fries with that?”

Those aren’t exactly the words any bride or groom-to-be wants to hear on their big day. Unless, of course, they are celebrating their nuptials at a branch of McDonald’s.

According to the Daily Mirror, the world-famous fast food chain now offers wedding day packages for couples eager to tie the knot in the company of a couple of Big Macs, a few McChicken sandwiches and a strawberry milkshake.

The McDonald’s wedding package is currently on offer to patrons living over in Hong Kong, with as many as 15 different outlets offering the service.

"Thinking about throwing a really special party for your wedding, engagement, anniversary or bridal shower? Think McDonald's," the official website says.

"Our Wedding Party packages have just everything you need, including unique venue decoration, customized games and special gifts for bride & groom and your guests.

"Everything will be taken care of by McDonald's. All you need to do is to be there and enjoy the moment of your lifetime."

Those looking to get McMarried can sign up for everything from official McDonald’s branded invites to balloon arches, fancy photo frames and special wedding favours.

Best of all, your McSpecial Day won’t set you back too much with the basic package on offer for about €380.

That includes venue hire, audio equipment and a party MC – if you want to hire Ronald McDonald to provide a little entertainment that is likely to set you back a bit more.

A deluxe Love Forever Party offer is also available for those looking to splash out, and comes with two McDonald's balloon wedding rings, a balloon bridal bouquet and a party MC.

This includes table balloons, seat covers, fries photo frames and, best of all, a three-tier wedding cake made entirely of McDonald’s apple pies.

The service has been on offer for much of the past eight years and while there are no plans in place to bring the service to the UK or Ireland, its continued success could convince McDonald’s to take the plunge.

McDonald's spokesperson Jessica Lee told CNBC: "We started the program because many customers tell us that McDonald's is where they first started dating.

"McDonald's is where their love stories grew.”

Onion rings will not be accepted in place of wedding rings. Mainly because McDonald's doesn't sell them.
