Imagine this happy meal strutting down the street. When Chen Guanyou got his groomsmen to accompany him to pick up his bride, Joanna Tan, on his wedding day, they showed up as McDonald’s menu items, to complement Chen’s Ronald McDonald outfit. The guys were marching to Tan’s residence in a tradition practiced by many Chinese couples in Southeast Asia, where the groom and his party have to complete a series of quests set by the bridesmaids in order to “win” the bride. These quests are often messy, embarrassing, or even painful in some cases. For Chen, he and his groomsmen completed tasks such as mashing their face into clingwrap and peeling off duct tape submerged in buckets of ice – all for the bride’s (and her friends’) amusement. Chen told Mashable he is a McDonald’s junkie who eats fast food once a week. “My wife hates fast food – she’s very health-conscious,” said Chen. “So (if) she wants to marry me she has to accept this.” Best of all, Chen made the costumes himself. He’s also taken out his crafting scissors on previous occasions, such as for company functions, he said. He noted that his wife enjoyed the surprise fast food show. “She knows there’s no choice. And she knows I love making costumes so it’s part of me,” he said. Here’s how the morning went for the couple. Read the full story here.
