If you’re planning a wedding, you’re probably putting a lot of thought into how you can indulge your guests and show them how much they matter to you. At FIVE Event Center, we see plenty of wedding trends come and go, but we’ve been noticing the number of couples offering late night snacks has been much larger lately- and we can see why! Here’s why this treat might be exactly what your reception needs and how to provide a late-night snack that will delight your guests.

Why Offer a Late-Night Snack at Your Wedding Reception?


Today’s wedding receptions are true celebrations. They can go on into the night, sometimes lasting hours after the meal is over. For guests who are mingling and hitting the dance floor, sustaining this kind of energy can get difficult. But when hosts surprise their guests with a late-night snack, it boosts blood sugar and enthusiasm, keeping the party strong right to the end.

Providing one last delicious nibble before the reception ends also leaves your guests feeling pampered, so they go home full of enthusiasm about the event. A late-night snack is a detail that makes your reception stand out in the best possible way.

Unique Late-Night Snack Ideas to Wow Your Wedding Guests


The food selection for a late-night snack is usually more casual and fun than a meal or appetizer. This is a time to play and spoil your guests with something delicious and light-hearted.

Each caterer will have a different selection of snack choices, but the types of foods that work well are usually small portions that are easy to handle and feel like an indulgent treat. This isn’t another meal but a nibble to round out the evening.

Some examples of good late-night snacks are pizzas, mini sliders, a nacho bar, gourmet popcorn, a variety of soft pretzels, or a sweet treat like a donut bar with a selection of toppings. The snack can work with the vibe or theme of your wedding for an extra dose of style.
