McWeddings? Sure. Or tie the knot at Taco Bell.

McWeddings in Hong Kong are only the latest iteration of the fast-food wedding. Besides McWeddings, couples get married at places like Taco Bell and White Castle.

A Hong Kong couple – Kelvin Kwong and Ashley Tse – is drawing worldwide attention for having their engagement party on a Valentine's Day at a McDonald's in Hong Kong.

The chain is promoting McWeddings as a new way to tie the knot.

Except, it's not so new:

  • In 2006, Trisha Lynn Esteppe and Tyree Henderson exchanged vows at the McDonald's in Fairborn, Ohio, where they worked together and met three years earlier.
  • In 2009, Rosemary Coones and Clinton Smith, 25 tied the knot at a White Castle in Louisville, Ky. and got a catered reception featuring White Castle's Silver Tray service, sponsored by a local radio station.
  • That same year, Paul and Caragh Brooks were married at a Taco Bell in Normal, Ill. Employees, who kept serving customers during the ceremony, displayed hot sauce packets labeled "Will you marry me?"
