Oh No, KFC Has Announced It Wants To Host Your Wedding
Forget churches, manicured gardens or romantic beaches because now you can say 'I do' next to the deep-fryers at Kentucky Fried Chicken.
In a bizarre turn of events, the global chicken chain has launched itself into the wedding industry, giving six lucky couples the chance to "offer one another a wing" with a KFC-themed ceremony.
If you've recently gotten engaged but have been unable to lock down a venue, you can head along to the KFC website to fill out a form to request the absolutely bonkers service.
According to a statement from the restaurant, the package will include catering by the KFC food truck, a KFC-themed celebrant (we're guessing a Colonel Sanders impersonator) and a KFC photo booth. There was no mention of what kind of cake would be on the menu -- but perhaps they'd provide an elegant swirl of mashed potatoes and gravy instead?
If you're wondering why on earth anyone would want to celebrate their big day with a fast-food chain, it's apparently because KFC restaurants are a popular choice for proposals.
“Over the years we’ve seen some amazing Facebook comments and have heard of some incredible proposals from fans taking place in our restaurants in Australia and around the world," Nikki Lawson, the Managing Director at KFC Australia said in a statement.
The thing about planning a wedding is, it's all about celebrating what you love as a couple and if you both love deep-fried chicken and chips that much then this could actually be a weirdly perfect day.
Plus, it seems as though KFC will be footing the bill (for up to 200 guests) and who could pass up a FREE wedding? The only major disclaimer is that you have to pay for your own booze or risk serving your guests Pepsi.
Applicants have to write 200 words about why they've dreamt about a KFC wedding since childhood, so start planning your mini-essay now to nab that chicken feast.
And then cross your fingers that this guy doesn't show up to DJ your first dance as a married couple.
The weddings will start taking place from as soon as November 2019 until May 2020
