This is sweet, and McDonalds is a thing for us too – we met working there! Love amongst the Big Macs, our friends call it.

 

Anyway, while I do think it’s cute, I would be aware of people that might not get the joke – for example, my FMIL is adorable but doesn’t get that sort of humour and would probably think it’s a bit weird/cheapening our engagement. 

 

So I think it’s great but do have a good think about your guests before you send them! What might be a funny inside joke to you and your close family and friends might be bizarre to Aunt Jane from out of state, or your FI’s boss that he felt he should invite.

@CallMeMrsG:  I get the sentiment, but I wouldn’t do this. You don’t want people opening your save the dates and going “huh? I don’t get it.” I would save the inside joke stuff for just the two of you!

I think doing something out of the ordinary is kind of cute! But I agree with the others that it may not be for everyone. Could you create two seperate STDs? One for those who would get the joke and one for everyone else? Or what if you got permission to do a picture on the playground at a McDonalds- it would be playful and fun but still “classy”?

@CallMeMrsG:  Since all of your family and friends know it is an inside joke between you guys, i say go for it!

Maybe you guys could take a couple pictures with Ronald or pictures on the playground (before they kick you out for being over 12 haha). I am not sure how far you would like to go with this theme… an extreme, but cute, idea would be to have little paper pockets that look like french fries containers with a slip that comes out with ur STD.

Some McDonald’s have a statue of Ronald– you could always take pictures with him. But I love the archs that @Gribberama posted! Totally works!
