Late Night Reception Snacks

Late Night Reception Snacks

Picture this… your wedding reception is headed into the late hours of the evening, but the party is starting to fizzle out. One way to keep the party going? Late night reception snacks! Offering guests a snack a few hours after dinner and cake has been served is a great way to keep guests energized and ready to party. While we’re pretty sure you realize we’re experts at being wedding DJs, photographers and videographers, we are also experts at reception snacks! Check out some of these snacks that are always a hit with guests.

Coffee bar. Coffees, cappuccinos and espressos will re-energize your guests to keep the party going to the last minute! Be sure to offer a decaf version too.

Donuts and cider. Perfect for an autumn wedding, cider and donut stations are a great late night snack that keeps the theme of your fall wedding.

Gourmet popcorn. Perfect for a casual or formal wedding reception, popcorn bars are a favorite among guests. Whether you buy bulk popcorn and offer a variety of flavoring options or go for extravagance and offer gourmet popcorn, guests are sure to enjoy popcorn for the late night snack. You can order personalized bags and cones, or stamp brown bags with your new monogram.

Cookies and milk. For the kid in all of us, cookies and milk are a big hit late night. If you are inviting children to your wedding reception, they’ll appreciate this simple snack. Offering chocolate and strawberry syrups for the milk is another great touch.

Candy buffet. Candy buffets are quite popular, with many couples using this as another opportunity to work in their wedding colors. Candy can be purchased in bulk and placed into your own variety of containers; don’t forget scoops for any loose candy. Who doesn’t like a trip to an open candy bar?!

Pizza. After a night of dancing (and drinks) guests appreciate a little substance, so many couples opt for a late night pizza bar. Consider vegetarian and gluten restrictions of your guests if you decide on pizza snacks.

Hot dog bar. Whether you serve Detroit coney dogs, or Chicago style sausage, hot dog bars are a fun snack at your wedding reception.

Cupcakes. If you like the tradition of a wedding cake, but still want to serve cupcakes at your wedding reception, your late night snack is another time to do so. This way you can have the best of both!

Soda bar. If your wedding has a retro theme, glass soda bottles are a perfect way to accent the event. Regional favorites are always a big hit. Pair it with vanilla ice cream for a soda float bar.

Pretzels. An assortment of toppings such as mustard, cheese and chocolate make a pretzel bar memorable. You can also offer a variety of both sweet and salty options.

S’Mores Stations: The perfect treat for your summer wedding reception. Whether you have a self-serve table, or pre-portioned s’more treat bags, your guests will love this sweet treat.
