I am a fan of good BBQ. It is on of my favorite things about the weather finally warming up. Did you know the month of May is also known as National BBQ month?
Just because you’re planning a wedding doesn’t mean you have to stick to a traditional menu of chicken or steak, potatoes, and a side of steamed veggies. Fun, quirky, and easy, having a barbecue-inspired wedding reception will have your guests feeling right at home. Bright sunflowers in mason jars, bandana napkins, smoky meats and ribs, is a nice departure from the previously mentioned traditional menu options. Luckily, there are plenty of barbecue places that will cater your wedding, especially in North Carolina.
Go the extra mile with a few ideas for cocktail hour and the post reception meal: line up lawn games like Bocce ball and corn hole to loosen people up; consider having a food truck parked at your venue to grill on the spot (just about everyone loves a food truck); lastly, secure an awesome country band to lead the party.
I’ve rounded up some of the most awesome barbecue ideas that will create the perfect recipe for a barbecue bash that will have your guests ready to chow down and hoe down with you and your spouse. Don’t forget the lemonade!
