We’re having a plated dinner at 7:30 pm at our venue, with full bar package, for 200 people. I’ve been to a wedding before where the couple had the freedom to have pizza delivered to their venue at 11pm for all the guests before last call — it was an amazing idea, and I can say as a guest, a life-saver. Unfortunately my venue doesn’t allow outside food nor a food truck to park outside. I’ve been against favors up until now, but now I’m trying to skirt around the rules and find a way to feed (tipsy) people at the end of the night. I can do this by bringing in food “favors”. Does anyone have any ideas?…Maybe, popcorn and trail mix in baggies or something?

Our venue offers a huge selection of late night options. We went with pizza, but we’re considering the pub food buffet too.
I love the cupcakes in a jar, I’ve never seen that before. That would probably be a lot neater to eat when drunk than a regular cupcake. 🙂

We had mini grilled cheese sandwiches, mini philly cheesesteaks, and sliders along with an assortment of Krispy Kreme donuts. The cupcakes in the jar might be overkill after wedding cake, if you are having cake. But almost anything is appreciated after a long night of drinking and dancing.

I’m ordering individual packages of cotton candy. I figure my drunk friends will destroy that on the way out.

If the aim is to feed people *because they are drunk*, I’d avoid super sugary things. Those will not “revive” drunk people and will likely make them feel a little sick/hungrier. I’d do a search for savory favors…trail mix could be really good (especially if you mixed in “puppy chow” for sweetness), granola, savory tartes…if you just want an edible favor, cupcakes would be awesome haha. But don’t put them in jars. The jars just get thrown away.

we had a similar dilema where the venue wouldnt allow us to bring in outside food, but our caterer is extremely accomodating and so were doing an indian taco buffet, but im sure a regular taco buffet would be just as fun!
