Final question!! Is your style more sweet or savory? Would you rather have a dessert table full of sweet options, or savory late-night snacks?

    Late night table for sure! Our guests aren't huge into sweets so we're going for a pub style tray

    We will be doing a “midnight table” being rolled out around 11ish and it will be a mix of Italian pastries and pizzas with fresh fruit. That is usually when we serve the wedding cake as well.

    Dessert table.

    Our wedding is a dry event, so I imagine people won't stay as late, so bit of a roll of the dice if anyone would be there for a late night snack...lol. Dessert table people can can throughout the even and later if they want to.

    Late Night Snacks for sure!

    We haven't decided on what we want to have for dessert yet and we didn't leave much room for it in the budget because it's not that important to us.

    Late Night Snack on the other hand was one of our first decisions. We both love one of the local mexican restaurants and they have a "midnight lunch" catering option so we're definitely treating guests to some of our favourite tacos!

    We are planning to have both! Some sweets like tarts and Nanaimo bars with the cake on the dessert table, and savoury late snacks around 9pm. I like the idea of Wendy's burgers! I love their burgers

    Ours doesn't quite fit into either of these. Our venue has a firepit area, we are going to bring out supplies for smores later in the night for anyone that wants one.

    Late night snack- defiantly believe needs to be actual foods instead of sweets

    We're doing a popcorn late night snack. It fits with our venue and is cheap. However, at weddings do do not discriminate with food and like any sweet or savory option Smiley xd

    We are having a little bit of both. We have fondue going out for late night that has fruit, marshmallows, pretzels and cookies. But we are also having pizza and cheeseburgers for those late night booze absorbing foods lol

    Hmmm I think I would go with savory, I know for myself that after a few drinks and dancing I'm not looking for something sweet.

    Both....

    I'm thinking right now we will have dainties as the dessert option and for the late night snack we may go back to the social food we had as sandwiches are always a hit and also good on the wallet.

    I'd take both but we're likely doing late-night snacks.
