Hello bees,hoping you can help me out yet again. The FI are debating if we should add another food option at midnight. We have selected the “Italian package” which consists of pasta, salad, some Polish meal, fish platter, a meat and dessert ( plus cocktail hour). We plan to have around 200 guests.
At midnight we will have a sweet table (standard stuff) and a Belgium waffle station which is already included in thepackage. We are debating if we should add sliders as well (extra cost). The sliders consists of mini chicken, beef and pulled pork sliders with assorted mini breads and sweet potatoes fries. There were other selections and sliders was the “best” option for us.
Some background, I am eastern European so I am used to having lots of food and a midnight station, whereas my FI is not. We planned for it in the budget but would it be too much food at midnight? Or should we just stick with the sweet table and waffle station? Thoughts?
Should we add the slider station?

@thelittleone: Most midnight buffets go largely uneaten. Your guests won’t finish eating dinner until late, and having had so much food before, I can’t see them being hungry for another meal’s worth of food so soon afterward.

If I were going to add anything at all, it would probsbly be to the cocktail hour appetizers or stations, rather than the midnight buffet, which already seems well covered. If your guests like to drink, it’s good to have some of the more substantial food options available at that time, since food slows down the absorption of alcohol.

Thanks! Yes we like to drink lol our wedding will be open bar. Our best friends wedding recently I believe they had lots left over plus they couldn’t bring out food option #2 because food option #1 wasn’t finished (they had limited space and had to use the head table as the midnight station as we have lots of space). I feel like I answered my own question lol
