One of the cutest ideas I have ever seen is the thoughtfulness behind a late night snack bar. So many times there’s only dinner, next thing you know the Mother of The Bride is passed out and your ‘oh so married’ cousin is making out with some girl you went to high school with. Late night snacks are a great way to combine one or more of your favourite foods for a little late night nosh. They will also lighten the load of dinner a bit. No one wants to gorge themselves and look fat on their big day, or pop a button. *wink, wink.

These late night ideas can also get your guests ready to wind down the party, while you slyly put the booze and the bar away.
