Has anyone done a late night snack at their reception? What was it, and how did it go over?
We’re thinking about bringing our freezer (we have a travel sized freezer chest we use for hunting meat that fits in the back of my truck and is easy to travel with) and filling it with ice cream bars, like dilly bars, ice cream sandwhichs, drumsticks, fudge bars, and fruit flavored popsicles. Just a bunch of different ice creams. No real reason, just that we like ice cream and thought it would be a nice treat for our guests, part way through the reception.
Anyone done any? How’d it go over? What did you have? Any suggestions on how to make it go smoothly?

I have not been to a wedding that had that, but I think it sounds like a good idea. I would make sure that your reception place can accomodate that/ you are allowed to do that. I would put one person in charge of taking over that- i.e. setting up, taking away at end of the night, etc.

Im assuming your venue allows outside food.

for our late night we had our coffee/tea, cake (cup cakes), fruit, meat, cheese, buns and condiments.
a variety of ice cream sounds amazing. my dh would have loved that idea.

I did a dessert bar when the dancing started. It was a huge hit! Ask a couple people to be responsible for putting everything out, make sure you have plates for everything, napkins, ect. Otherwise go for it!

yeah, we’re allowed outside food. We asked specifically, because of dietry restrictions with us we have to be able to bring our own. It was the first question we asked haha.
I never even thought of having to get someone else to do it. My brothers can do it easily, so thanks for that, because I wouldn’t have thought of it!

Strangly enough I’ve only seen this at two canadians weddings and one destination wedding. We want to do it too but I’m on the fence becuase I not sure how many guest will still late. If we do it we will keep it simple, it will probably be three or four kinds of sliders beef, chicken, lamb, roasted veggie option, plus french fries with different toppings.
