Many brides and grooms want their wedding receptions to be parties that carry on well into the wee hours of the morning. If you are inviting a few close friends to a second location for late night festivities, you will want to have something to feed them. These are some tips on planning for late night wedding munchies.For couples who have decided to have this type of wedding after-party, it will mean needing to plan for one more phase of food service. In addition to the usual cocktail hour and dinner fare, you should have some great late night snacks to offer your guests. The number of people that you should expect to feed will depend in part on the mixture of your wedding guests. It is safe to anticipate that less than half of your dinner guests will stick around for the late night fun. Normally, the people that stay will be the young adults and maybe a crazy uncle or two.
