The organisation of a wedding can be one of the most stressful yet exciting experiences of your life. With so much to take into consideration, it is easy to have aspects that are overlooked. This can sometimes be the late-night reception menu. In order to keep the celebrations going deep into the night, your guests are going to need to be properly fueled by some high-energy foods. In this blog, we are going to cover some of the best late-night snacks that we can create, to keep the wedding party going to ensure your wedding reception is one to remember!
The reception is the time to let loose, laugh, dance and create memories. If you’re looking to keep the festivities going, offering some late-night snacks is a fantastic option. Not only do they provide sustenance to hungry guests, but they also add an element of surprise and delight to the evening. If you’re looking for some initial inspiration take a look at our Wedding Evening Food Menu and read on.
Sausage & Bacon Butty
Who doesn’t love a classic sausage or bacon butty? A hearty bacon butty could be exactly what your guests are after. A simple grab-and-go option is perfect to keep the momentum of the night going strong. Giving your guests an option to refuel on the move will remove any interruptions and the risk of an awkward emptiness on the dancefloor. There is also a wide range of options when it comes to a sausage or bacon butty. Consider an alternative sausage option or a range of condiments. Allow guests to personalise their sandwiches and watch their faces light up!
A traditional wedding finger buffet is a fantastic choice for those wanting to offer a versatile range of bite-sized options. A buffet consisting of everything from sandwiches and wraps to vegetable samosas or chicken skewers is bound to have something for everyone. You can easily accommodate everyone’s dietary needs and taste preferences with a finger buffet. Feel free to take a look at our finger buffet menu for some inspiration.
Cheese & Onion / Cornish Pasties
These savoury delights are most definitely not one to overlook and these traditional treats have become a popular choice for weddings and events. Like the sausage or bacon butty, the beauty of a pasty lies in its handheld nature. These make them an excellent choice for those looking to keep their guests socialising, dancing and away from the seating options. Most of the major food groups all in one conveniently held tasty morsel!
Gourmet Cheese Boards
Cheese boards will always be an absolute win at any wedding reception! You can picture the look on your guest’s faces as a beautifully presented selection of cheeses is revealed. Cheese boards are a sophisticated option that offers a variety of flavours and textures. Our cheese boards are accompanied by a selection of breads, crackers, grapes, cherry tomatoes, butter & chutney. This allows your guests to create their own delectable combinations and elevate the night as a whole!
Alternatively, you could always opt for a sharing board or platter if you want some more variety.
Discuss Your Options
You should always prioritise communication with your caterer as they will often be able to accommodate any particular requests you have. Here at Green Fig, we understand how challenging it can be deciding on your menu. Any experienced cater will be able to create a menu or offer options that align with your vision for the day. Clearly express your desires and share any ideas you might have. Then your caterer can work with you to find a great solution.
If you are stuck between some options you can always request a tasting session with your caterer to sample the proposed late-night snack menu. This allows you to assess the quality, flavours, and presentation of the snacks before finalising the menu. It also gives you another opportunity to provide feedback to your catering team to ensure they meet your needs and find the best late-night wedding snacks for your event. The worst thing you can do on your wedding day is settle for less than perfection!
