    I really like the sound of your lighter fare menu! But I would add mac and cheese. Because everyone loves mac and cheese! Yum!

    I voted for the heavy southern deliciousness, but I’m biased because that’s the type of menu we want to have πŸ™‚ It’s important to us to have food that we actually want to eat and not the typical chicken breast type meal (not that there’s anything wrong with that). Some good comfort food just sounds great to me. (And I was already hungry. This isn’t helping!)

    @sherchristine:  I agree that you should do the lighter fare, heavier food may make people tired and not want to dance. I love mac and cheese though and agree with pp that you should add that (Maybe in place of the pasta salad).

    I went to a wedding that was “upscale” BBQ … grilled shrimp, steak, tilapia, skewers … everything was so so so so good !!  Sides were a mix of grilled veggies and rice with a teriyaki sauce, mac n cheese and I forget what else.  It was delicious !

    We are having it catered, so our caterers are keeping everything warm and tended to.

    We are doing the same thing!

     

    I PERSONALLY like the southern style one better, but my caterer mentioned…..I have vegetarians coming. And I have weird friends. πŸ˜‰ So I want to make sure there will be something for everyone. So I’m doing a little mix of both….I’m gonna have a salad and either veggie kabobs or a veggie lasagna on the side. And hopefully it won’t be TOO much of a gut bomb for everyone.

    @sherchristine:  I don’t like mac and cheese or casseroles but I realize some people do.

    I would definitely have mashed potatoes and caesar salad, though. Yum! I know it’s not that exciting, but it is a crowd pleaser.

    Love coleslaw. Will you be BBQing any veggies? That would be delicious. And do baked potatoes on the BBQ as well, and have a station where people can load them up with whatever they want (i.e. sour cream, chives, bacon bits etc.).

    Is there any way to incorporate both? I like mac & cheese and collared greens and they’re staples of a BBQ but I also would like fruit and a light slaw. If you don’t want to spend $$$, even just slices of cold watermelon would be nice.
