Late Night Snack: This one is becoming more and more popular, and honestly I never see it going out of style!  After all of the important rituals are completed, cake cutting, toasts, dances, dinner, etc., the rest of the night is full of dancing and libations!  Guests are pleasantly surprised when a delicious late night bite comes out during the last hour of the reception.

 Some of my personal (and guest) favorites include a mini cheese burger, fried chicken waffle bite, truffle French fries, and mini gourmet grilled cheese!

Tapas: For those of you that do not know what tapas are, they are known as small plates. Instead of giving a full serving of an item, it creates a smaller portion so guests can enjoy everything and experience a variety of different options. The presentation is also pristine as the chef attendant is garnishing and saucing each plate before presenting it to guests.

 It is always good to do two or even three tapas items because it gives guests the opportunity to have a “little bit of this” and “little bit of that” instead of just filling up on one item off of your menu!

Gourmet Vegetarian: There are almost always a few wedding guests that opt for a vegetarian lifestyle.  Some brides opt to offer a special vegetarian option for their vegetarian guests, but there some options that will be sure to please the non-vegetarians and vegetarians alike. Not all vegetarian options have to be something that lacks in excitement, we have hors d’oeuvres and entrees that will meet the expectations of any guest at your reception. One of my favorite options is a Balsamic Marinated Stuffed Mushroom with Tomato, Garlic, Spinach and Parmesan. Mouth-watering, right? It seems that fresh, local produce is becoming the star of these dishes instead of it just being a side dish!
