Screw Wedding Cake, Couple Celebrate Wedding With KFC Meal

Now, I'm going to put this out there right away: I only ever eat KFC when I'm extremely lashed.

That's not because it's bad in anyway, it's just that I only get the 'Sanders' hankering after a night on the sauce. Booze sauce.

So let's not sit here (I'm sitting) judging Cherish and Edward Simms, who celebrated their nuptials (it means wedding, it's not a side dish) by having a mega KFC meal along with their 40 wedding guests. That's because when any of us eat KFC, we tend to do it very, very alone, surrounded by fellow pissheads in our local branch of the fried chicken vendor.

The couple from Worcester love KFC so much that they decided to have their wedding reception there, even ringing the outlet every month just to make sure it had gone ahead.

Presumably they were worried KFC might be chicken and duck out of it's wedding-hosting responsibilities. BOOM! CHICKEN JOKE!

Cherish said: "It was a joint decision and we thought it would be a bit of fun. We love eating chicken and chips and we probably order food from there around once a week.

"We didn't want a boring reception where we would have to organise everything ourselves so we thought why not see if it was possible.

"When the guests saw on the invite that the reception would be there, they weren't surprised at all, they know what we are like.

"We got in touch with the manager, who thought it was a bit strange, but was willing to give it a go for us."

Not only did the couple enjoy a bargain bucket, their family and friends also got to tuck into sides, desserts and family-sized sharers all for under £100. Hear that? That's two wings in the eye of wedding planners up and down the country.

Cherish said KFC went out of its way to ensure everyone had a fab time.

"We had more than enough to eat and they had really gone to town with the decoration," she said. "We didn't even plan anything with them, but they really managed to make our day special."

Finger. Licking. Fab.
