My wedding is NEXT december 4th. I have now officially chosen the venue and we have decided to do the cooking there as it is an outdoor country venue that does allow cooking such as bbqing on site. SO thats what were gonna do! I have a question about the menu.
We are planning on having:
Undecided (sausage or chicken)
Yeast rolls (white and wheat)
Mac n cheese
fixins (onions, pickles, sauce..)
along with Tea/water/beer and oddly a margarita machine (FH family is hispanic and its tradition..)
Does this sound ok? am i forgetting something or do yall have any suggestions? I would love to hear from other brides that had bbq at their wedding. Thank you all in advance. I would love to hear back

A green salad for a healthier option? A vegetarian main?

Sounds tasty! It’s going to be a heavy meal! How about cole slaw or corn on the cob? What’s for dessert?

I think corn on the cob would be a great addition! we are having cupcakes and hot coco for dessert

I also vote for adding a green salad. If it is a buffet, I would serve salad and coleslaw dressings on the side.

add some veggie, lactose free and healthy options! And maybe a few ‘fancy’ small sides?
I don’t mean to offend at all, but the BBQ sounds a bit ‘boring’.. 🙁 It’s no more special than any other regular BBQ for 4th of July. I’d do some out of the box things! Don’t have to be expensive… but more special!

I’d really struggle with this menu!!! I’d only eat the chicken and a roll. However if you added a green salad and corn on the Cobb I’d be much happier.

You had the same post two months ago, same menu and now the same answers.
I lived in Texas for a bit and for me it would be a bit chilly for traditional BBQ, you on the right track for starches and “heavier” foods. I also couldn’t eat much beyond mac n’ cheese and rolls. Maybe stuffed peppers or smoked turkey with a cranberry sauce

Agree with PP. Definitely add a salad. Also a vegetable, such as green beans or asparagus, or possibly cole slaw.

I think it sounds great! At my wedding we had pulled BBQ pork and chicken, mac n cheese, green beans, corn bread, and potatoe salad with sweet tea, lemonade, and water to drink. It went over very well woth our guests. They loved having BBQ. But I’m in the Deep South so it’s well known and loved here. In Texas, I think you’re right to do brisket!

I would definitely add a green salad and probably another type of cold salad, with some color in it! Maybe some bbq mushrooms too!
