My original plan was to have butler passed hors d’ouerves, a champagne toast, plated dinner service and late night snacks. I feel these are all important but I’m curious, do others feel that we may be able to cut one out of the service?

We had butler passed hors d’ouerves and wine and nonalchoholic drinks for the cocktail hour, no champagne toast, plated salad and a buffet dinner and cake, and for our late night snacks, which were really early evening snacks, we had a candy/cookie bar.

if you’re going to cut one i’d cut the champagne toast. people will toast with whatever they have in their hand.

I’ve been a wedding planner for years, and if you’re looking to cut something – do the champagne toast first. Typically 75% of the glasses won’t get used as most will toast with whatever is in hand.
Even late night snacks are underappreciated in some circles. If you want the most impact, maybe do drinks before the ceremony. Champagne punch, lemonade and water is simple but very unusual for most weddings.
Good luck 🙂

Maybe your guests are different, but mine definitely wouldn’t take advantage of the late night snacks. Even though its a fun event, people generally don’t like to overeat- it seems like everyone is on a diet or health kick these days. Plus, they’ll be too busy dancing- right?
