Since you have the meat figured out I would make corn bread muffins, slow cooked beans, potato salad, pickles and jalepenos. Since you are doing BBQ these sides should all be acceptable (it is what I did) You could also have chips and home made salsa or other dips.

we always buy our alvacado dips but you could easily experament with salsa recipies before the wedding. You can use fresh tomatos or the canned crushed tomatos (the flavor does not change much.) We use an electrical chopper or a blender to mix it all up. I also put in fresh garlic (2 or 3 pieces depending), onion, bell pepper for flavor and jalepenos for heat. It depends on how spicy you want it, if you want really hot then leave all the seeds in, if not then only put in some seeds. You could also have a 7 layer dip http://www.ehow.com/how_11550_make-seven-layer.html that is a recipe for a layer dip.

It depends on your budget. You can then plan what foods you are going to prepare based on your budget. Try to choose foods that can be consumed by all types of people so that your preparation will not be wasted. Best Wishes!

It depends on what time of the day is your wedding. Mine is at 9 in the morning and reception was at around 12nn, in time for lunch. we basically serve our native food. We make sure that we have - soup, chicken, pork, beef, vegetables and ice cream fro desserts.

Food choice depends on several things but consider the following: What is your budget? How much can you/are you willing to spend per person on food? This is obviously the first consideration because once you set your price per person budget, that will narrow down your menu choices. What is the formality of your wedding? Are you looking to have a full service meal with a wait staff or a buffet? If you have a served meal, you'll need to have a choice between meat and vegetarian entrees. If you have a buffet, people can pick out whatever they want. If they don't eat meat, then they don't have to get the meat dish... From there, go simple. I've been to weddings where the main entree is something you would normally pay $20 for at a restaurant and can't order from the menu unless you are fluent in five languages. Conversely, my cousin's reception was a barbeque with a huge smoke pit and corn on the cob, potato salad....the "works." Pick out something that you will enjoy eating (it's your day, make you happy first). I'm planning on roast beef, chicken cordon bleu, twice baked potatoes, a green salad and bread.

Thank you for you response. We are doing the whole thing ourselves. I have saved alot of money so far on this wedding. I got the wedding dress for $30.00, because I went with a Pagent dress. The one I wanted and had the money for was $500.00. So we are going to use the extra money on food. We are wanting buffet style. Happy MyLotting and Thanks again.
