2. Keep it simple. Don't serve super fancy food towards the end of the night. Sure, it's ok to add some pizzazz, but don't go overboard. For instance, if you want to serve mini hot dogs with chipotle ketchup or ceasar coleslaw that's wonderful! The variations in toppings is a great change from the traditional ones, however serving a specialty bratwurst hotdog filled with a variety of cheeses may not be the best option.
3. Count on it. By this point in the reception, a lot of guests will have already left for the evening. So don't order as much food from your caterer as you did previously. Order at least 50% less. No matter what type of dinner service you had, your caterer provided enough for your expected guest count. Therefore, they will be able to provide enough food for your late night guest count. Estimating how many guests will still be around late in the evening can be tricky, so ordering half as much food should work for you.
4. Top 3 winners. Serve only your top three favorite snacks. Of course, you can just serve one snack, however you shouldn't choose more than three.
5. The clock is ticking. Serve your snacks 45 minutes to an hour before your reception will end. If your reception is scheduled to end at midnight, serve your snacks between the times of 11 pm and 11:15 pm. This will give the catering staff ample time to serve your guests and for your guests to eat, dance, and find their shoes.
Would you consider having a late night reception and serving snacks?
Happy Planningn & God Bless!
