Aside from offering up the traditional menu, many modern brides and grooms who are hosting events that extend into late night – or even the wee hours of the morning – are opting to provide additional fare in the form of “late-night snacks.” Typically, these smaller bites, closer to appetizers in size, are passed around a few hours after dinner and forgo the formality of the previous cuisine. These smaller offerings are commonly a nod to the couple’s idea of “comfort food,” as many choose to include creamy desserts, salty snacks, and even fast food items.
Late-night eats are rising in popularity due to the after-party trend – the celebratory atmosphere is important to contemporary pairs and their commitment to their guests’ enjoyment remains strong. If you’re considering this culinary extension for your own nuptials, scroll through the inspirational pictures below of late-night bites included in some of our real weddings.
