(Newser) – Hong Kong couples can now celebrate their union at McDonald's, reports CNN. Starting in January, several branches will offer wedding packages complete with baked apple pie wedding cakes, party favors, bridesmaid dresses made of balloons (you read that right) and, presumably, the sweet, sweet smell of a Big Mac. Booze won't be available, but the newlyweds can toast the occasion with soft drinks or milkshakes.

A McDonald's rep says they launched the plan, the chain's first wedding party package anywhere in the world, because they get about 10 requests per month from engaged couples. Apparently, jokes the South China Morning Post, there are plenty of people who find the idea of a fast-food wedding "tray chic."
