    I went to a wedding that had BBQ and they offered pulled pork and brisket with pretty much the same sides you are having. Everyone loved the food and no one complained about the lack of options or anything like that. I personally thought it was perfect for a bbq reception. For some reason the polls haven’t been working for me so I can’t vote, but I’d vote for having a beef and a pork option. Those two will pretty much cover every type of guest.

    i would loooove your reception. i voted brisket and chicken. i’m not a huge fan of pork but i would eat it if it were there (instead of chicken). brisket is my favorite.

    I would probably only eat chicken.  I may try a bit of the pork, but I only eat turkey at Thanksgiving and I don’t really like brisket.

    I love pulled port, so I picked that. Plus beef can be kinda dry if it’s been sitting out. I think chicken is safest since most people like chicken.

    Pulled pork & brisket are my 2 picks. But chicken is probably a safer pick. So maybe chicken & pulled pork.

    I’d do brisket and turkey.  Even if the wedding is fairly casual, people will still be dressed a little nicer than usual, if not full on dressed up, and BBQ chicken on the bone is way too messy for that.

    while my personal tastes lean more towards the pork, there are many reasons that people choose not to eat pork, making brisket more likely to be enjoyed by more folks.

    If you offer a third meat I would look into the texas-style smoked/BBQ link sausage, as it would give a little more color and shape to the overall buffet display. Break up all the brown and beige tones with some smokey, deep red/reddish-brown sausages.

    Try to get as much color into your sides as possible. BBQ sides tend to be very brown, white or yellow. Get a really nice autumn tomato/mozzarella/basil salad going on (St Augustine should still have nice tomatoes that time of year?), or pesto/tortellini salad.  You pretty much have to have potato salad, cole slaw, beans or mac and cheese but add some extra sides to bring in some reds and greens to make the overall buffet look really gorgeous.

    @beachbride1216:  we are doing bbq also! we chose pulled bbq pork, beef brisket and smoked chicken. just to make sure their is something everyone likes! so 3 meats may be a better choice unless you dont want to spend that much. ours came out to about 20$ a person with all those choices

    our sides are the same except we have cole slaw instead of salad
