Here’s the low down:
wedding is at 6pm, we’re having hors d’oeuvres, platters, finger foods etc. but no plated or buffet dinner.
We want something delicious and filling for a late night buffet so people will still be fed, want it to be delicious and fun, and a little different and also appropriate for the time.
I really want to do a Poutine bar, regular fries, sweet potato fries, and a variety of toppings. There’s a restaurant here called Smokes Poutinerie, i think they’re a global franchise and I’m looking into having them do it.
Most people I’ve told this idea to think it sounds awesome, but a few have said they think it doesn’t sound classy – cue MIL lol. What are your thoughts? Would you think it was awesome and delicious after a few hours of drinking and dancing? Or not?

I have one word for you, and that word is YUM!

I would not judge you at all, it is my understanding poutine is popular and if you love it you should totally have it at your wedding.
Buuuuut I probably wouldn’t eat it because poutine kinda freaks me out.

We’re doing a poutine bar for our late night buffet. It’s not supposed to be classy. It’s supposed to be a yummy, fun, late night snack. By the point it’s brought out everyone will be inebriated anyways.
Also, I don’t know about you, but I know some of my guests have never had poutine. Sacrilegious for a Canadian! The poutine will be a novelty.

@Bebealways: You need to go to Montreal and eat poutine.

we also having a poutine station, along with a waffle station and a mini burgers station. Majority of our guests are in the 20’s-30s age who LOVE to party and drink so we had to make sure we have some good food late night 😉

Brilliant idea! And it can be vegetarian/vegan friendly if you have different types of gravy available for guests to top their own.
Will Smokes provide the stuff for guests to DIY it (in which case fries might be not so hot or soggy) or will they be there with the truck?

@MrsPhilly: We did this late night menu option (sweet potato fries, regular shoe-string fries, and a variety of cheeses and gravy) and it was a HUGE hit. People were lining up waiting for it to be served. I don’t think there was any left over.
I think Smokes has a truck that you could probably rent for your venue. I’ve seen it at the Toronto Exhibition. Brilliant idea.

I should have done this instead of tacos!!

we’re planning on doing one too – actually…we’re hoping that our caterer can bring their Food Truck 🙂
Our reception will (hopefully) be in a repurposed industrial building so we’re having a very offbeat wedding
