It’s about 11:15 pm, and the reception is kicking into high gear … what’s will delight your guests right now? Food! A midnight snack is just what your guests need to keep going through the night and a great way to inject some personality and fun into the second half of the evening.

Comfort foods, finger foods and family recipes are great go-tos and sweet or savory work. Some couples opt for hand-passed items for elegance, while yet others go for a bar option with customization galore. Classic appetizers, sweet treats and fast food are also lovely ways to surprise your guests and keep them celebrating until the wee hours.
