    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.

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

    cbgmtx:  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. 🙂

    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!

    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 🙂

    cbgmtx:  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!
