For drinks you could do lemonade with sweet tea vodka. Totally delish and fits with your theme. 🙂 I also love pomegranate champagne punch, or I made this white peach sangria that was a huge hit at a party (if you want recipes let me know)

How about coleslaw, collard greens, mashed turnips, succotash, or corn casserole.

I’m thinking for sides, add collard greens and fried green tomatoes.

For drinks, mint juleps would look SO pretty in one of those holders.

ETA: Ooo also, my venue does a sweet potato parsnip fried cake. I think that would go well with remoulade. Also, corn on the cob OR cream corn would be a good idea. Oh, and grits. Can I come to your wedding? Sealed

You need you some greens. Get some spicy collards or some garlic green beans!

Fried okra??! 😀 

What do you think about mojitos? Or a “south side swizzle” (gin version)? Both are similar to a mint julep but without the brown liquor.

This is RIGHT up my alley!  I went to this awesome wedding where they served classy southern cuisine.  It was amazing!  They, of course, had shrimp and grits.  They also had these AWESOME martini glass meals!  They layered coleslaw, BBQ, baked beans, mashed potatoes with a piece of cornbread to garnish.  It was amazing, classy, but still southern!  I cannot stress how much everyone loved it and raved over it!

@ashleetoo:  I think BBQ baked beans to pair with the brisket, something green like green bean casserole or turnip greens and maybe some sweet corn. I would love to see sweet tea, lemonade with fresh lemons, strawberry lemonade with fresh strawberries and peach Sangria with fresh peach slices. OMG this sounds soooo good! I would love to come to your wedding.
