We did one around 10pm or so?  Can’t quite remember the time but it was hit.  We did a gourmet ‘make your own sandwich’ bar, with nice buns, cheeses, meats, pickles, veggies and condiments.  People loved it.  In hindsight, I think something more glutunous like poutine,sliders or hot dogs may have been more fun but this is what our caterer offered.  I’ve even heard of couples doing late night McDonald’s cheeseburgers and fries.  Of course, then you would have to have someone leave to go get it.

We did dollar menu cheeseburgers from mcdonalds at 10pm. Still being talked about 2 years later and everyone was ecstatic haha.

 

ETA: after seeing pp response above me, wanted to add that my wedding planner went to pick up – she was probably gone for 20 min 🙂

I went to a wedding which had a late night cookie bar. They served heaps of different cookies with tea, coffee and hot chocolate. It was awesome and a real hit with most guests.

We did a late night snack of grilled cheese and fries at our after-party. It was a big hit!

We didn’t really spend a lot more on it–just a few trays of brownies, cookies and pastries. Most of it didn’t get eaten, in all honesty. People were too busy dancing 🙂

One wedding I attended had an after party that had a couple sandwich platters and antipasti around 10:30/11pm.  There was not enough food! There were quite a few young adults who danced and drank the night away and had the munchies at 11pm.  I definitely recommend doing something, but maybe a bit later if you can?

My cousin did poutine and it was a hit, one of my friends also had a Belgian food truck from NYC come and make fresh waffles with toppings and that was a hit too. I’ve had an ice cream cart in LA come to a wedding too.

if the party lasts till 12 am or later, a late night snack is nice. Pizza, popcorn bar, crepes would all make me happy.

Walking tacos! Mini bags of Fritos and Doritos with taco beef, cheese, and all the other taco toppings set up buffet-style. It was amazing!

Totally love this idea! Any fun finger food is great towards the end of the night.

SamanthaF83 :  oh my a nacho bar sounds like the most delightful idea ever!  Nachos and margaritas are my go-to ladies night snacks.  I’m stealing this idea and adding tacos haha

SamanthaF83 :  It’s a nice idea. I think all the weddings I’ve been to in the past 10 years or so have had late night snacks. 9:30 seems really early though. I’d push it off until 10:30 or 11 unless your party is scheduled to end early. Or if it’s stretching your budget, it’s not necessary.
