A McDonald’s wedding lunch might not sound like paradise to most people tying the knot, but, to Steven Asher and Emily Marshall, it’s the perfect spot to celebrate with friends and family.
The young couple took several of their first dates at McDonald’s, and, at 20 and 27 years old, they, like many young couples, sometimes struggle with finances. Because of money issues, they sometimes rely on McDonald’s for a few cheap weekly dates.
The couple is planning to celebrate their upcoming nuptials with a breakfast of chicken nuggets and a Chicken Legend burger.
Like any happy couple who just tied the knot, they will arrive at the McDonald’s in a stretch limo with around 40 guests. The restaurant has even agreed to rope off an area for the newlyweds.
Instead of alcohol, the couple and their guests will sip on lemonade since adult beverages are not sold at the location. Although, they still hope the ban on alcohol can be lifted for their McDonald’s wedding lunch.
Steven explains that the idea was agreed to by Emily because she loves the food. Speaking to the Daily Mail, he explains:
“Even when I say to her that it can be somewhere posh she still picks McDonald’s.’It’s Emily’s favourite – if we ever go out for lunch I always ask her where she wants to go and she always says McDonald’s.”
‘… What my princess wants, my princess gets.”
Steven and Emily will tie the knot at the Bristol Register Office on Saturday, July 27.
After the meal, the couple will complete their wedding day at the Avonmouth Working Men’s Club.
Emily and Steven aren’t alone in their idea for a McDonald’s wedding lunch; it was actually Emily’s mothers idea to hold their special meal at the restaurant that brought them together.
This isn’t even the first McDonald’s wedding we have witnessed. A couple in China held their entire event at the fast food chain:
Sure, some of our readers might laugh at the couple’s idea for a special day, but they would probably laugh at other people who have $30,000 in wedding day debt.
Do you think the idea of a McDonald’s Wedding Lunch is crazy or a smart decision in uncertain economic times?
