Hi Bees —
For those of you who’ve been there, done that, did you list your midnight snack (if you were offering one) on your menus?
For those who either didn’t offer a midnight snack, or have been guests at weddings with one, should it be listed on the menu card? It’ll be a surprise in the sense that no one knows we’re having a midnight snack, but I’m thinking that it would be best to list it on the menu so that guests know to stick around! Thoughts?

I think that’s an excellent idea! We didn’t have menus so we had to spread the info by word of mouth but I think putting it on the menu is a great way to make sure everyone knows about the snacks.

I have never been to a wedding that offered a midnight snack. My preference in this situation though would be to see it listed on the menu, that way I know if I get hungry there will be something offered.

We had a grilled cheese bar brought out around 11pm. It was a surprise – we didn’t list it anywhere. Mmmm, grilled cheese.

Ive never seen the midnight buffet written down. It’s always spread word of mouth in my experience.
It couldn’t hurt to list it, then everyone will know for sure. 🙂

I wouldn’t put exactly what you are serving, but you could write “make sure to stick around for a midnight snack!” at the bottom of your menu, maybe? That way it’s more of a surprise

If you are wanting it as a suprise then no don’t list it. They will figure it out when it comes out. Plus if its on the menu as a snack they may want it then or like i said it ruins the suprise.

I’m not doing a menu (is that a huge deal?) so I don’t have to worry about this. BUT, I think I like it better when the late-night snack is a surprise! For us, we’re going to have pizza delivered by this delivery man who used to show up at college parties and sell $5 pizzas to drunk kids. It’ll be a throwback for me, FH, and our friends. 🙂

we are writing “save room for cupcakes & a midnight treat” on the bottom of ours.

Love the “save room for” approach from Miss Coral. I think it should def be on the menu since we left a wedding to get McDonalds cuz we were so hungry! lol! Not sure if they had a snack later or not, but had we known for sure we would have stayed!

mmmm..grilled cheese. Ugh I have tons of bread and no cheese.
OP, I think a surprise would be really nice

we didn’t do a menu and we had late night snacks brought out around 10pm…sliders, pizzas, and mozzarella sticks. I think most were surprised

We had one big menu on an easel, and we didn’t list our late night snack.
honestly, we had sliders, popcorn, and mini-root beer floats because we had a minimum to meet, and I think hardly any of it got eaten because people were still full from dinner and cake, but oh well 🙂

I had “Late Night Snacks” (wood fired pizza’s, etc). On my menu, I listed it after the wedding cake, and just stated “Late Night Snacks”. I felt that if I put it on, my guests would be more likely to stay knowing that the night didn’t end after the cake

I voted no because I think it should be a suprise. I am having a late night snack and I am not telling many people about it. Your guests should want to stay to celebrate with you, not just stay for more free food!
