Late Night Food

Jasmine, on October 17, 2022 at 10:19 Posted in Wedding reception 0 12
Is it okay to skip the late night food option? Our wedding will end at midnight with dinner ending around 8 or so. I really don’t want to do it as it’s more $$$

    I think it depends partly on liquor laws. We had a late night snack option starting at 10:30 pm (wedding ended at 12:30 am) but there were not a lot of takers as many were still full from dinner. We had a poutine bar!

    If dinner is at 8pm, I would have something small such as a dessert table...

    Late night food is definitely a nice to have, not a must have. But if you're running a bar for four hours, it is a good idea to provide something, like a dessert table.

    Definitely do whatever you want and within ypur budget. If you're cake ceremony and serving to your guests that may be just enough. But again, do what you are comfortable/happy with. My cocktail hour is at 5p with appies and drinks, dinner at 615p and late night snacks at 10pmish. The main reason for my late night snacks/desserts is cause we are having an open bar and need something for these guests to absorb the alcohol. 😊

    It is totally up to you! I found that the late night snack only recently became popular (within the last few years). I would just make sure to do your cake cutting a bit later so they have a treat later in the evening.

    My timeline is like this:

    Reception starts at 5:30 pm and there will by appetizers there. 6:30 pm dinner will be served, 7:00 pm - cake cutting and cupcakes. 10 pm - late night snack.

    Our dinner was at 6pm. We did our cake cutting at 930pm so our guests did have cake as a snack

    We didn't provide any late night snacks, dinner was served around 7 with us getting "kicked out" by 1pm. We did have our dessert table out all night, so that was kinda our "snack" option.

    My dinner starts at 5pm and ends at midnight so we are just going to do like a charcuterie board and pizza just so that way my out-of-town guest aren't starving to the hotel after the wedding.

    Like Stevie mentioned it's your wedding, maybe have a desert bar or a snack bar with candies, chocolate, cakes without breaking the bank.

    You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to at your own wedding! I would say that if you’re having some kind of dessert option, you could do a dessert table an hour or two after dinner so that people have something to snack on but it’s something you would’ve had anyway - just switching up the timing a bit and not having it served seated at tables. Maybe that’s an option?
