I think if the salad is on the buffet, I wouldn’t worry about a salad fork, since everyone will just use the same fork for all the dinner items.  If the salad is being served separately, then I would consider getting salad forks, since people often forget to keep the fork for the next course (the buffet, in your case).

Looking at your menu, I don’t think you’d need spoons for anything.  The only thing I could think of is if you were serving coffee/hot tea, and wanted people to have a spoon for stirring.  Your place setting ideas look good to me!

More than you think you will need. Some utensils will fall on the floor, others won’t get to use their silverware because someone else picks it up and takes to the kitchen. The last wedding I went to, no one used knives or spoons. They had stirring straws to mix in cream and sugar in coffee. But they actually ran out of forks before the cake was cut. Have a complete set with knives and spoons because you never know what you will need and it’s better to have something on hand and not use it than to not have it at all when you need it.
