Late Night Snack? Did you or are you going to?

We have the option to add a late night snack. Ive been to a couple weddings that have had them (though when I got married for the first time 10 yrs ago this wasnt popular) Ive been to one that  had pizza and one that had coney dogs and white castle!

Did you do this or are you going to do this and what are you having?


Our hall offers a few options but right now we are trying to decide between pizza and a taco bar. I think the taco bar would be alot of fun!

    We're doing a late night snack. By then, it helps to get a little food in everyone. We went with pizza because it's not too messy. We had the option of a coney dog bar (yum!) but I've seen those before - it's a big mess.

    We had an ice cream sundae bar with Ray's ice cream and various toppings at 9:30 pm and the caterer pre-ordered 30 cheeseburgers, 20 hamburgers and 30 orders of small fries from Bates Burger in Livonia and picked them up and served them around 10:30 pm. It went over VERY WELL. Pics below:



    ( I LOVED the raspberry sorbet from Ray's........had the "server" put a scoop into my champagne flute........yum)




    With 50 burgers, there were about 6 left over at the end of the night and my son took them back to the hotel to share with his friends.

    We're doing pizza since it's so simple but can help those alcohol-fillled bellies. Plus, a lot of our family/friends wouldn't turn down taking how the leftovers if necessary. [:

    Unfortunately, our venue doesn't do them :( But if we had the option, we'd totally do it! After a couple hours of dancing and sweating, it would be really nice to have a snack! I've only been to one wedding where they did this, about a month ago, and it was a big hit! All the guests were ver appreciative.

    We are doing pizza too.  It really makes a huge difference to those partiers especially since our reception goes until 2 and they may not be able to get a " snack" that late:)

    I think so. My only fear is both knowing how much food to get, and what if people have left by 9:30 or 10? (which would be so sad for so many reasons... :-( )

    We are doing one. We chose coney dogs and sliders to fit with our Detroit theme. Pizza was an option but I am not a big pizza eater and I though Coney dogs fit with the Detroit theme way better.

    My venue said that you should only order late night snack for half of the guest because of people leaving or not eating it.

    We're highly considering doing one as well. I think pizza is our best option...I don't think many people will turn it down after hours of drinking/dancing/sweating before driving home. Our venue only charges for half of the total number of people since many people have left by the time the snacks are put out.

    We're doing it, we probably won't do anything during the reception because We're having the wedding at our home church so the Dessert table will be set up all night. But at ten we're gonna light a bonfire, cut the music and have some smores untill everyone wants to leave. (Hoping there will be enough left in the budget for some fireworks!)

    I love the late night snack idea, but I never seem to eat it at weddings. Anyone else? We are not providing a late night snack, do you think people expect one?

    We're doing a taco bar!!! 

    Arnaldo's has awesome pricing on it. $1/PP...can you beat that? seriously! I would do it, or do both since they recommended ordering for only half of the guests...so I figured $160 for that is very very reasonable! 

    We thought about also doing coney's, but our dinner is already being served late...we didn't want a ton of food no one ate!

    We had a piza buffet at 10pm.  It was a HUGE hit, and probably one of the top 3 things we got complimented on that night.  I highly recommend doing a late night snack if you can!

    everytime i've gone to a wedding either a- i leave before the snack is delivered or b- there wasn't one. So i have no say on how great it is- although i'm sure it's pretty awesome :)
    i went to a new years party this year that was at a hall and they had a pizza late night snack. i thought that was awesome.
    personally, i would choose pizza over tacos.

    We are going to, but only because it is free.

    Pizza and coneys (no need to choose, w00t!).

    i kind of expect afterglow food by now.  we are definitely doing this.  it helps people sober up too!  do it to please your guests!  if you want them to hang around and party all night you should print a timeline for each guest...this way they know what to stick around for!

    We supposedly had pizzas although I was too busy to even realize they were put out.  I think it's nice surprise to guests and I don't think you can go wrong to do it.
