    KFC? No way!

    Chicken as you are describing and home made mac and cheese with a little gourmet thrown in? YUM!

    When I ate meat, I would’ve loved that menu! That sounds delicious. Just make sure you have enough real food for any non-meat eaters! Mac and cheese (as long as its a normal serving of it) would be perfect for me, especially if there were mashed potatoes, green beans, cornbread, etc!

    We had fried chicken at our wedding!  It came with mashed potatoes, biscuits and gravy, collard greens, cream corn, and we added macaroni family style to all of the tables.  We had a southern kind of theme to our menu and everyone absolutely loved it!  It was by far the most popular meal of the night (our other options were shellfish over grits and grilled twin filets of beef).

    Fried chicken is wonderful and most everyone loves it. Not sure what makes it gourmet though. Buttermilk fried chicken is not considered fancy or exotic by most people since it’s generally a staple that everyone knows to fix.

    Your menu sounds delicious and everyone should love it.

    The food sounds delicious!  But unfortunately I had to pick “no way”.  But no way for me due to my family being picky, health conscious eaters.  I wouldn’t mind eating fried chicken at a wedding with yummy mac n cheese, but for me after eating fried chicken I usually get this gross feeling in my stomach and go directly into food coma haha.  But it is your wedding and if you want it go for it!

    We served chicken and waffles and grilled catfish with shrimp sauce at our wedding. We wanted good food and everyone was happy. 

    ETA: I forgot to mention that my wedding was semi-formal.

    I think for those that would eat it it is perfectly fine and fun! As long as you have a lighter option that isnt so heavy an unhealthy for those that would prefer it, then I say go for it!

    I think it depends on the feel of your wedding reception, if its a more laid back affair then no one would mind, but its very formal people wouldnt expect fried chicked and mac & cheese

    No clue what makes it gourmet. But folks love comfort foods. The latest trends according to magazines (not that that should be your main source) is that comfort food is back in style regardless of the formality.

    Your guests can handle one indulgent meal in their lifetimes if it is not their normal cuisine. But most people will gladly eat it and thank you that it isn;t stuffy.
