    @Selene221: I would be pleased with any hot food really, as I have been to weddings at a dinner hour with no food. I think it depends on the venue and level of formality of then event. If it were a fancy hotel ballroom wedding and they brought in bucket of KFC, I’d think it was odd/distasteful. If it were a intimate backyard wedding, I’d be all for it. Once again, I’d eat it in any case I just don’t think fast food chicken belongs at a formal wedding.

    I’ll admit that although I would not refuse to eat the meal, I would find it curious if a couple had KFC or Popeye’s at their wedding.

    Well, would it be presented in KFC buckets? That changes things.

    For my HS grad open house, we had Popeye’s chicken with homemade sides, and everyone was complimenting my mom on her chicken lol.

    I don’t eat fried chicken from fast food restaurants, ever.  If it was a casual wedding and they had a caterer make home made fried chicken (among other options) I would be have some.  But if someone brought in some Popeye’s I would most certainly not eat it, and I would be annoyed.

    Sounds great to me. I can’t imagine why it would be served in the original packaging for guests to see. When you have a catered meal, the caterers aren’t dumb/lazy enough to leave their packaging out as serving dishes, so why would that be the case in this hypothetical situation? Without any packaging in sight, how can anyone tell where it’s from? They can’t, end of story.

    Practically everyone loves fried chicken of some sort and would be thankful for a hot meal provided by gracious hosts. If someone has a problem with it, perhaps they’re better off staying home or going to a completely different event.

    When you stop to think about it, how it is any different from the popular In&Out food truck (or any food truck which is the new trend at weddings) that many people dish out tons of money to have at their weddings or the couples who have their reception at McD’s or wherever that you see in the various blogs such as StyleMePretty? It isn’t any different so why discriminate that one type of comfort cuisine is ok while another isn’t?

    I would eat if if there was no other choice and I was hungry, (but I would take off the fried skin!).  I just don’t eat fried anything because it feels really heavy.  But you’re sort of held hostage at a wedding to eat whatever is served so I’d make do.

    But I do think that a wedding is a occassion to serve something a little nicer than the norm.  Something at least a step up from what you would eat everyday.

    I wouldn’t mind fried chicken at a wedding but it might get messy, ya know?  and frankly if they bought it all at KFC and put it in a chafing dish and said it was an old family recipe people wouldn’t say a word.  LOL

    I’ve never been held hostage at any wedding I have attended and forced to eat what was served, nor has anyone else I know. No one is holding a gun to your head or has you tied to the chair.

    As far as messes, that’s what napkins are for but alot of formal foods (including hand-held appetizers) are equally messy. Who eats fried chicken with a fork anyway?

    @Ember78:  I guess you’ve never been on a yatch wedding, stuck for 6 hours and starving… (yes true story).

    I would totally eat and not care, but then again I am not picky and I feel like the bride & groom are nice enough to have some sort of food, why would I complain?

    @MrsWilson, that is true. They are being gracious and there is no reason to complain about anything as a guest. Some couples don’t serve anything at all during a meal time.
