We're on a tight budget and catering our dinner ourselves. We want to do a buffet and came up with a tentative menu:

Fried Chicken
Fried Shrimp
Homemade Mac n Cheese
Coleslaw
Pasta salad
Jello pretzel salad
Cheese, fruit and veggie tray
Ranch fountain
Something else
Our Cake

We are only having about 75 to 90 people and I know his family is used to just going to KFC after a wedding at the JOP

I think it's fine. I don't see anything tacky about it. Your wedding, your day.

I missed the ranch fountain. That's different.....My son would love that. He's gross, and has been known to drink ranch out of a cup!

I say whatever you want.

For some reason the ranch fountain is a turn off for me as well.   I don't think it is tacky, just makes me kind of sick to my stomach for some reason, LOL

Happy Wedding!
