HONG KONG, July 16 (UPI) -- It's been said that "If you liked it, then you should have put a ring on it." Well apparently if you're "lovin' it," then you should put a ring on it at McDonald's.

Hong Kong residents started having their wedding receptions at McDonald's in 2011, and the practice has become so popular that 15 venues now offer opportunities for nuptial celebrations.

"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. "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."

Wedding packages offer things like McDonald's balloon wedding rings and a balloon wedding hat for the groom, and packages range from $373 all the way up to the super-sized $1,290 deluxe deal.

"Thinking about throwing a really special party for your wedding, engagement, anniversary or bridal shower? Think McDonald's," the McDonald's Wedding Party website states.

"Our Wedding Party packages have just everything you need, including unique venue decoration, customized games and special gifts for bride & groom and your guests. Everything will be taken care of by McDonald's. All you need to do is to be there and enjoy the moment of your lifetime."
