McDonald's Does Weddings in Hong Kong

This is seriously a WTF.  I didn't even think that this would be a go in Hong Kong of all places.  The vast majority of Hong Kongers are of Chinese descent and a fast food wedding is a definite no-go.  Modern Hong Kong weddings are a mix of eastern and western tradition.  The bridal party usually has the ceremony in western clothing (bride in white, groom in a tux/suit as well as a handful of bridesmaids, groomsmen and perhaps some kids (flower girl and "flower boy" (the boy escorts the flower girl rather than carries a pillow with fake rings)).  At the reception, which is usually a 12 course Chinese dinner, the bride will change into a Chinese wedding outfit and into at least one or two more outfits throughout the evening.  There are some cases of the groom changing, but I've only seen that once.  A McWedding would be totally against this tradition.  Heck, even more rebellious couples who decide on having a full western style wedding would find this rebellious.  If you want to save on money, why not just run off to the marriage registry and get it over and done with?  McDonald's?  The food isn't good anyway.
