KFC Sponsors S$2,300 Of Couple’s Wedding, Including Unique Fried Chicken Bouquet
One couple, however, held their wedding at a ballroom in a SAFRA clubhouse — but served guests KFC.
The fast-food chain reportedly even sponsored part of their expenses.
They did this because both the bride and groom are reportedly fans of their fried chicken.
Bride raves over KFC wedding of her dreams
The bride, Ms Wong Liang Le, posted photos of the wedding on Facebook today (26 Nov).
Describing it as the “KFC-themed wedding of her (my) dreams”, she said it was really cool to have KFC as part of her “unique and super memorable” day.
A video showed buffet trays full of KFC’s fried chicken.
The beaming bride also shared a photo of herself carrying a bridal bouquet not of flowers, but fried chicken.
She later ‘threw’ the tasty bouquet to a friend, as is the custom.
Bride reached out to KFC as she loves their food
The unforgettable event came about when Ms Wong, 32, reached out to KFC as she was preparing for her wedding, reported Shin Min Daily News.
As she loves to eat KFC, she had hoped that her nuptials would be related to the fast-food chain in some way.
Thus, she emailed them asking for a souvenir of some sort, but never expected them to offer to sponsor half of the wedding food.
They also provided some decor to be used as a photo backdrop.
KFC sponsored food, photo backdrop & bouquet
A KFC manager told Shin Min that they were touched by the inspiring story of Ms Wong, who is a wheelchair user due to a spinal injury caused by a rare spinal condition called spinal Arteriovenous Malformation.
Despite her illness, she started a dropshipping business, got a double degree in accounting and business law, and completed the Chartered Accountant Professional Qualification Course (ACCA) last year.
As she’s also a loyal KFC customer, the company decided to show their appreciation by helping her out with her wedding.
He revealed that the chain sponsored half the wedding food comprising fried chicken, as well as the inimitable fried chicken bouquet and a photo booth backdrop, all of which were worth about S$2,300 in total.
Couple’s 1st date was at KFC
As for the groom, he fully approved of the wedding concept because he likes to eat KFC too.
In fact, the couple’s first date was at KFC.
Mr Xie Peng (name transliterated from Mandarin), a 40-year-old software engineer, told Shin Min that he was happy when Ms Wong suggested they meet for the first time at KFC.
As they got to know each other via a dating app, he felt that they had something in common even before they had met in person.
While many prospective partners would frown upon going for a date at a fast-food outlet, the fact that Ms Wong suggested KFC also meant that she was unpretentious, he said.
She had told him about her condition from the beginning and he didn’t mind continuing to chat.
After they met up, they found that they got along well and had similar life goals, so they decided to get married within the same year.
A love match that started with fried chicken
We applaud KFC for making the couple’s happy occasion even more memorable.
Their story is proof that one doesn’t need much for a successful love match — just two compatible hearts and a place where you both love to meet up.
We wish the couple a blessed and happy marriage.
