Fun July Wedding Reception Menu?

We are having a night reception outdoors in july starting between 7 or 8. Our ceremony will be at 6, so we know we will sever dinner for our 100 guests.

Our ceremony will be at 6, so we know we will sever dinner for our 100 guests. Our wedding is a fun rustic theme with fireworks and games. We are wanting to spend as little as possible on food. We wanted to stay away from the typical backyard foods. We really wanted a soup salad and bread bar, but think soup is kinda out of season for July. So we thought about doing different kind of bars, thinking they would fit our theme. So we thought a baked potato bar and maybe a salad bar. For the potato bar we will have butter, sour cream, bacon, chives, cheese, chili, onions, pulled pork, olives, peppers, ranch and other dressings, The salad bar will consist of cottage cheese, caesar salad, green salad with all the chef fixings, fruit salad, orange salad, and pasta salad. Is this enough food mainly meat? We also thought a burger or hotdog bar would be okay, just not regular hotdogs and burgers? Also we are open to any ideas :)
