Do you want fries with that?

In what can only be described as a crazy stunt by the local radio station, a McDonalds restaurant in Australia is following in the footsteps of the Hong Kong chain and offering to host that ‘special day’ – a wedding…. of sorts. 

Edith, 61 and Denis Schultz, 63, will renew their 1966 wedding vows at a McDonald’s Toowoomba, in Queensland on Friday, watched by their daughter and friends. The radio station will then send them off on a honeymoon, one they didn’t have in 1966.

Most brides are content with having one Arch at their wedding, Edith though is having two gold coloured ones, for all the world to see.

The idea is in response to several McDonalds outlets in Hong Kong that have announced wedding packages for couples, inclusive of decorations, a personalised menu, and an apple pie “wedding cake”.

Edith said

When I heard about it on the radio I thought, oh well, why not? I don’t mind McDonald’s

Instead of the white wedding dress, pillbox hat and veil in 1966, her attire will be in total contrast.

She said

The bride’s wearing black this time, nice black pants with a chiffony top, I’ve told everybody. We might end up on YouTube. Denis said ‘Oh bulls—!’ when I told him I’d won. He better show up, otherwise I’ll have to take a cardboard cut-out of him along.
