- Wedding: November 2014
Hey bees; I have a quick question for you guys. We are having a 6PM half-hour ceremony followed immediately by a reception at 6:30 (everything at the same place). Cocktail hour will be 6:30-7:30, dinner around 8, reception wraps up around 11:30. Then starting at 11:30, we are having an after-party at the private club next door to our venue. At the after-party we will be providing a “late night snack” of pizzas, sliders and french fries around midnight.
However, our package with the venue also comes with a late night snack served around 11:00. We have a few savoury choices (sliders, pizza, hot dogs) or we can do a dessert table (mini cheesecakes, cannolis, lava cakes, lemon bars, etc). I’m not sure what we should pick considering that dessert will be served no later than 9-ish as is, and we are doing cupcakes so there will be lots of options. But if we go the savoury route, then people will be having more of the same at the after party. So I guess my question is, which would you prefer? Here’s our rough menu/schedule:
6:30PM – 7:30PM: Cocktail hour
-mini spinach pies
-prosciutto and fontinella-wrapped asparagus
-cheese, crackers, fruit, vegetables, etc.
8:00 PM-9:00PM: Diinner
-rolls & butter
-choice of filet, halibut, or vegetarian stuffed shells (all w/ appropriate starch & vegetable)
-cupcakes in 8 different flavours (lemon drop, cherry chip, chocolate, salted caramel, red velvet, pumpkin spice, chocolate peanut butter, strawberry cream, vanilla truffle)
-coffee station with whipped cream, flavoured syrups, chocolate shavings, cinnamon sticks, etc.
11:00PM: Late night snack (??) we have a choice of pizza, burgers/fries, coney dogs/fries, or desserts
-vegetable & cheese pizza
The bolded area is where I’m not sure whether we should do something savoury or sweet. Either way I feel like it’s a bit of an overload, but like I said, it comes with our package. Would you prefer double dessert or double snack food? We will have an open bar at the reception (after-party will be cash bar) so I assume people will be drinking pretty heavily, if that influences anyone’s opinion!
