When wedding planning, you quickly get the idea of how expensive it can get. You might wonder why to add the cost of late-night snacks on top of all that. Well, it bears way more significance than you can think of. Here are some reasons why you should plan for late-night snacks when planning a wedding:
Keep Your Guests Happy
Weddings are a long and tiring experience for guests. It's extra grueling for those who have traveled long distances to attend. Arranging late-night snacks can be a great way to keep your guests happy and satisfied. When your guests are happy, they are more likely to enjoy the rest of the wedding events and make great memories.
Show Your Appreciation
Providing late-night snacks is a great way to show your appreciation to your guests for attending the wedding and staying late to celebrate. It is a great way to let them know you care about them and want them to have a great time at the wedding.
Prevent Over Intoxication
By offering late-night snacks, you can help prevent guests from drinking on an empty stomach and reduce the risks associated with excessive alcohol consumption. When guests consume alcohol without food, their bodies absorb the alcohol more quickly, leading to a higher blood alcohol concentration. This can result in guests becoming too intoxicated, potentially causing disruptions or accidents at the wedding. So, this is yet another reason to serve snacks at your after-wedding party.
Keep The Party Going
Late-night snacks can help keep the party going long into the night. When your guests have food and refreshments, they are likely to stay and dance the night away. It can create a fun and energetic atmosphere that will be remembered for years.
My lovely clients, Ellen and Kevin, had just tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony. They had danced the night away with their family and friends and were feeling exhausted but happy. Their guests were getting a little restless as the night started to wind down. People had been dancing for hours, and many felt a little hungry. Nevertheless, we had worked with the caterer to set up a self-serve station in the corner of the reception hall, so guests could grab a snack whenever needed. The guests made their way over to the snack station and were pleased to see that it was a hit. As the guests snacked on some mini sliders, the couple felt grateful that we had arranged for these late-night treats. Not only were their guests happy and satisfied, but they were re-energized and ready to keep dancing. The night continued, and the snacks kept coming.
This is exactly what you can expect when you add late-night snacks to your wedding plan. And that is why, if you plan your wedding to extend till late at night, snacks are a must. With various options available, from savory to sweet, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
