Drop the corn sugar and reduce the IBUs a bit and you have a very nice Grissette recipe!!  My recipe for Grissette is 7# Pilsner and 3# Wheat.  I also step mash as per the schedule outlined in Farmhouse Ales which makes the beer nice and fermentable and I also used the Belle Saison Dry Yeast with great results.

Let us know how it turns out!!

I wouldn't be afraid to use the original hop schedule.  Although Nelson is a high alpha acid hop it is low in cohumelone so shouldn't be harsh and is a good hop in a Saison.  Also, you originally had almost 90% of your hops added in the last 15 minutes which is going to add aroma more than bitterness and aroma fades with time anyway.  You also have a 1/2 pound of aromatic which I think would add some maltiness to stand up to the hops.  Just my two cents.
