Ophélie and Thomas Billaudeau didn’t simply roll up to the McDonald’s drive-thru and ask for one of everything, and their decision to exclude the fast food giant’s iconic fries was well thought out. “We didn’t serve fries or potatoes to avoid them getting cold and soggy,” Thomas explained to People. Hopefully, TikTok won’t roast them for the omission.

It’s clear that the menu was exactly what the couple wanted, but some of the guests were a bit hesitant about the unconventional choice when the couple revealed the caterer by having a McDonald’s employee carry in bags of the food. Luckily, it turned out to be a hit. Thomas told People, “The guests were surprised, happy, and some were initially hesitant, but everyone ended up loving it.” Still, Thomas admitted that while he believes “everyone should do what they want for their wedding,” serving up McDonald’s isn’t something he would wholeheartedly suggest to other couples. The most important thing at a wedding, though, as he points out, is that “there’s a good atmosphere and the guests enjoy themselves.”
We couldn’t agree more, but we advise future weddings to find a way to incorporate the fries.
