Wedding Midnight Snacks

I think there is nothing better than being at a wedding, dancing your heart out and suddenly? Out come platters of delicious food that give you just a little more energy to dance until dawn.

Midnight snacks at a wedding are a brilliant way to keep your guests’ energy level up but it’s also a fun way to bring out your favourite food that you might not have considered serving during dinner (cheeseburgers? french fries? doughnuts?). Consider making the portions bite size so they’re easy to eat between songs!

Stuck for ideas? Let my stomach grumble as I ramble off my favourites – grilled cheese with shot glasses of tomato soup, mini burgers, shot glasses filled with french fries covered in tomato sauce, ice cream, tiny chocolate chip cookies with milk, doughnut holes,  mini hot dogs, Hot chocolate, curry with poppadums, pikelet stacks with fresh berries, party pies and cocktail frankfurters (you may laugh but these are always the first to go at any party, let’s be honest!), mini tacos, macaroni & cheese, baked potatoes, meatballs, sausage rolls.. the list goes on!

What would you serve?

    I love this idea! Ben and I have been toying with the idea of having a burrito bar for our reception…but to bring it out as a midnight snack option is PERFECT! Keep everyone’s bellies full so their feet can keep moving! :)

    Awesome idea!! Especially for those who have guests that may be a little “tired & emotional” at this time of the evening!! Cookies & cream on a stick– GET OUT!

    My sister has just built a pizza oven at our parents house where we are having the wedding- so midnight wood fired pizzas for all!
