Hi all! Really need some input here. We are doing a small wedding. We will have dinner at a restaurant and going back to a cottage for a bonfire. We want a late night snack that can be made ahead of time and won’t have to be heated up. We don’t want our family to have to spend to much time on it. Thanks!!!

    Yes I love Leanne’s idea. What’s better then s’mores, hotdogs, and chip dip around a fire at a cottage. You could even add in some finger sandwiches, and fruit if you wanted too. I would really play off the environment you will have back at the cottage. Just keep it simple. Smiley smile

    The venue let us have a late night snack and we chose sandwiches, fruits and veggies and everyone loved it. The night before the wedding, my family spent time with me at the bonfire having smores.

    Late night snack at a bonfire I immediately think s'mores, spider dogs and chips & dip! If you wanted to amp up the menu, instead of plain hot dogs, wrap them in bacon, or you could do some sort of kebab. Any sort of sandwich or meat and cheese platter would work as well.

    Oh this is a great idea!!! You could even pre-cut some bite size pieces and put them on sticks for guests to heat up! Wouldnt be as messy and bite sized snacks are always easier!

    My first instinct with a bonfire was a weiner roast! No one has to cook anything ahead of time, and people can cook 'em how they like it. It's interactive, and people love campfire hotdogs!

    Because the late night snack is often for the slightly intoxicated... I suggest something like chips and dip, spinach dip bread bowls, etc... Fruit/veggie trays are fine too... but they aren't exactly what I picture as "comfort food" at 11pm...

    It's totally up to you, and you know your guests better than anyone, so it will be mainly dependent on the convenience factor for you.

    Could take a fruit platter to the next level if you/someone you know have a fondue pot to get chocolate fondue going!

    Platters are always great! Veggies, fruit, meat and cheese. Then you can also have chips and stuff like that. Then you can just buy the platters and you don’t need to prep anything lol

    I love the ideas already provided but here are some more:

    S'mores (shouldn't take too long if who wants are making their own), soup in a cup, shrimp ring, cheese/crackers/pickles/deli meat, cream puffs, chips and guac/salsa/queso dip, and of course veggies and ranch Smiley tongue

    You could get some cute bags and fill them with popcorn for all of your guests once they're back? Maybe some different flavorings/seasonings for them!

    You can do chips and dip (something like a taco dip that is better cold)
    pizza is always an easy choice
    fruit or bite sized desserts like brownies and cookies.
