Should You Serve Late Night Snacks at Your Wedding?

Are late night snacks worth it?

Late night snacks are a must at any wedding. With friends and family dancing and indulging in drinks and party chatter, a snack at the peak of the night is always a hit with guests. 

Typically, late night snacks are served later in the evening after the dinner reception, usually around 9 to 11 p.m. when guests are enjoying themselves on the dance floor. Providing snacks for guests can help replenish their energy before the end of the reception and enhance the festive atmosphere of the wedding. If the budget allows, offering late night snacks is a great idea and can leave a positive impression on guests.
