CyberCyndee99:  Green salad? Something potatoes? Green beans with almonds? Mac and cheese? Some kind of grilled vegetable medley?

CyberCyndee99:  I’d start with the general categories and then narrow down within those what you like.   You’ve got your meat covered with the entrees so for the sides that really leaves carbs and veg/salad.  Potatoes are cheap and delicious as a side.  For Veg you could do something hot like green beans or cold like a green salad.  For your third think of something make ahead that reflects your tastes.  Something like baked beans, pasta salad or potato salad (if you aren’t having it as a side). 

Cake is the traditional wedding dessert so you could make sheetcakes but I’ve also been served and really enjoyed brownies.

Pulled Pork

Grilled chicken

Mac & Cheese (or potato salad if u have ppl who can’t do gluten)

Collard Greens

Corn bread

You could make: potato salad, beans, green salad, cole slaw, green beans. I liked pp’s idea of corn but I’m afraid it’s too out of season to taste good.

various pies for dessert

if you need more ideas, you could look at the sides on offer at a BBQ place

i would LOVE this type of menu!
