I wouldn’t do corn on the cob; way too messy even if it’s a casual wedding; people will still be a bit dressed up.  I’d try maybe a corn pudding or spoon bread instead.  I’d also do some roasted portobello mushrooms for any vegetarians (or those who just like to eat a bit healthier), and maybe some grilled green/yellow squash skewers to get some varuety in the colors; the green salad and tomato salad will look nice but there is still an awful lot of brown/beige/white food going on, and throwing some bright colored veggies in the mix would really perk up the look of the buffet.  

Lastly you may want to switch the pork for beef or add a beef selection for those who don’t care for plain chicken but also don’t eat pork for whatever reason.  Or do a pulled beef and a few Texas-style bbq sausages (that helps with the color too).

As someone who thinks pork is gross, but loves barbeque sauce, I’d want there to be a chicken with barbeque option.  I would add some vegetables, too.

Sounds great, I wouldn’t consider corn on the cobb though, I mean, it’s super good, but most people want to slather it in butter and it gets pretty messy + it doesn’t look very formal when you’re chomping on that sucker!

Also, are you just having wedding cake for dessert?

I would add bbq chicken,  some veggies, corn spoon spread, maybe add beef & pepper skewers.

Sounds great.  In the south, lots of weddings have bbq.  Nothing beats an old fashioned pig pickin’.  We had bbq for the rehersal dinner, complete with corn on the cob.  It rocked.

Perhaps some banana pudding for dessert???  Yum!  You could aways put wet naps at all the place settings with cute tags, maybe even have some fun bibs on hand.  I’ve also seen homemade hot sauce for favors.

A BBQ dinner sounds great! I’m from the South and we are having a Southern BBQ rehearsal dinner at my parents’ house. I’m a big fan of BBQ chicken and I think that would be a good idea for you to include BBQ chicken and plain chicken. For our rehearsal dinner, I plan to sweet tea, homemade lemonade and fruit infused water for the drinks in drink dispensers like these.

We are also going to have a pie buffet for dessert and a campfire to roast marshmallows and make S’mores. I was also thinking of having an ice cream bar but that might be a bit too much. We are going to have lawn games such as cornhole, croquet, and outdoor tic tac toe at the rehearsal dinner.
