Wedding packages are now on the menu at McDonald’s restaurants in Hong Kong, as well as engagement and anniversary parties, and bridal showers.

Launched a few years ago, the program has expanded from three to 15 venues, with prices ranging from $373 to $1,290, according to CNBC. The deluxe package includes renting the venue for two hours, two McDonald’s balloon wedding rings, and 50 McDonaldLand character gifts.

“We started the program because many customers tell us that McDonald’s is where they first started dating … McDonald’s is where their love stories grew,” McDonald’s spokeswoman Jessica Lee told CNBC via email.

“This connection is exactly why they want to hold their wedding parties, and even anniversary parties at McDonald’s—to relive sweet beginnings and bring their romantic story full circle.”
