Late Night Food

Looking for some ideas on late night food options! We would love something a little different than the usual, but are open to more or less anything!

    We have a friend who has a Fast Food Truck...

    Pick your poison...




    Corn Dogs,

    Hot Dogs,


    Deep Fried Pickles,

    Taco Bites...

    Here's the kicker tho...we're going at the Reception the only REAL food avaliable will be the Wedding Cake for the Reception....

    Everything else is at the Food Truck out Front...ALL proceeds go the the Vendor...

    Another thing we did differently was B Y O B....Bring your own Beverages....We are after all Rustic and outdoor and in the a remote area...

    Our guests haven't given us any grief and are actually very supportive of this option...

    Definitely different, and I am sure that there are those who will be both Amazed and Stunned by this option works for us and many of our friends and we've had NO blow back...

    Your Wedding is about WHO you are, What you like and being a team...It shouldn't be about anything you are not, OR anything you would not be comfortable with...

    To all my September Bride Sisters...ENJOY YOUR DAY...don't second guess yourself, and go with your gut.

    I used to do weddings here are some I've done.

    Sliders, Tacos, Egg Rolls, Samosas, Pizza, Pierogies, Corndogs, etc

    My best friend is doing pretzel bar because her partner is of German descent. We are doing tacos and poutine. That way people can just have fries if they don't like poutine.

    We had the option of getting the late night buffet choice in our price range which was an advantage. We had sandwiches/wraps, fruits and veggies served to guests for them to help themselves and put on the menu card placed on the tables rather than making an announcement.

    I went to a wedding recently that had fajitas! They were very good and seemed to fit in for the time of night!
    Another wedding I went to had finger sandwiches later and I personally didn’t enjoy them as much.

    We're doing tacos!

    I'd say think of the food you crave when you've been drinking, and go from there. We are usually late night burrito people so we thought tacos was an easy option

    Personally, I always appreciate a good fruit table after a heavy dinner. Melon, grapes, and pineapple are so refreshing after a carby and protein rich dinner.

    I totally get the appeal of poutine but it's never any good at any of the weddings I've been to that had it. The gravy always suck - it's either too runny or not enough salt. The best fry bar I've had at a wedding was one where they have a ton of toppings where you can make kimchi fries or a Mexican style fries supreme.

    One wedding I went to had a late night seafood table. Basically a long table of mussels, shrimps, crayfish, squid, and crab legs in a tomato broth that people can go fill up a small bowl with.

    My Best Man had a porchetta carving station with grilled pineapple as his late night food. Best late night food at a wedding ever.

    We will likely do pizza because it's cheap and who doesn't like pizza, but I think a lot of caterers have fun options these days. Some examples of other things I've seen are:

    - pasta bar

    - poutine bar

    - mac and cheese bar

    - tacos

    Or really anything you can do in a food truck you can probably do for a late night snack.

    We were originally having a NYE wedding and we traditionally have crock pot mac & cheese on New Year's Day every year, so we asked the venue to do homestyle mac and cheese. It was AMAZING - so happy with our request. Everyone loved it. I am big on good, unique food for weddings but honestly love poutine as a late night snack when drinking 😅😅. We've gone to a few weddings with poutine bars, nacho bars, and taco bars but the tacos got real messy haha. Our venue had the option of a fajita bar too. Two I've recently heard of which sound awesome are chicken & waffles and soft pretzels.

    We've decided to do pizza. But our first idea was a taco bar!
