I want our Save the Dates to be some sort of funny picture and a play on words. For all of our family and friends, they know that McDonalds is a huge inside joke for us. (See my Valentines Day Surprise below) So I was wanting to capture some sort of funny photo of us at McDonalds and then caption it with “I’m lovin it” or use some sort of McDonalds lingo.
I keep getting stuck though… so I figured I would see if anyone out there can possibly help.
(For Valentines Day my guy surprised me with a Lobster Dinner … accompanied by McDonald’s Cheeseburgers, Nuggets and Fries. When I asked him why he did that, he said it was because when he asked me where I wanted to go for our VDay dinner, I said, “Doesnt matter to me! I wouldnt care if it was McDonalds”

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 Future Mother-In-Law 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.

Thanks everyone 🙂
I guess I should have added that this will be a small ceremony with only people who know us intimately so everyone would actually get this. Our invites are going to be more formal of course, but I wanted to do something more fun and funny for our Save the Dates.

How about just using the golden arches 🙂

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!
