Late Night Wedding Snacks ?  Will you provide them for your wedding guests?  The pressure is on to be the host with the most.  For many couples this includes “Late Night Snacks”.  Most caterers offer a variety of options, but this just piles on the cost to you per guest.  Is it necessary?  No, but it depends on your budget and what is important to you.  Feel it’s a must?  There are ways around the huge per head cost.  This OF COURSE, involves some DIY projects. Love, love the beverage above. It’s cute, sweet, and I’ve yet to see another like it.

The “S’Mores” above, usually with a tag that reads, “S’ Mores to Love” have been done and done again. But there’s a reason, it’s a nice snack and relatively inexpensive; and easily to assemble yourself before the wedding.

I adore the treat above, which in it’s beauty can also act as a wedding favor.  I remember the first wedding I attend at the tender age of four.  At the end of the evening, each guest was offered a piece of wedding cake in a pristine little white cake box.  My mom told me that if I placed it under my pillow at night, I’d dream of my husband. It was a hard decision to refrain from eating the cake, and save it to place under my pillow, but I did it!  Did I dream of my future husband? …No… 🙁  And as the photos above show, it doesn’t have to be cake you send home, but a treat such as fudge.

The next photo offers a light treat that presents a beautiful display and would be relatively inexpensive.  All you need is a stand, some chocolates and a creative eye.  Sometimes all guests need is just a little nibble to tide them over.

Of the opinion that your guests need more of a hearty snack?  The pies above would surely be filling, and if your theme is country based, fit in nicely.  You could even bypass the caterer, (provided he/she is not contracted along with the reception venue), and purchase the pies at a reduced price yourself!

I have long been a fan of the consumable wedding favor.  You enjoy it at the time, and then…it’s gone.  We all have cluttered lives, at lease I do any way, and who wants to add more?  These cookies above look delectable, and I bet the wedding had a nautical theme.

Desire something a little longer lasting?  Then this sachet is for you!  Not only will it make your guests’ drawers smell nice, it won’t take up much room.

The spoon above is an adorable keepsake, but I bet it didn’t come cheap, and would be another item to clutter your drawers…

Another consumable!  I love this hot cocoa and smores idea.  You guests could have an entire dessert one night…on you!  I’m sure they would reminisce fondly of the wonderful time they had at your wedding.

Of all the favors in this post, I think the jam and bread one is my favorite.  And the wedding couple even personalized it by stamping their names and wedding date on the bread bag!  You could even cut the cost if you knew someone with culinary talent, like my cousin Kim, who is a FANTASTIC COOK!  If you’d like some great recipes, just click on the link and you’ll be directed to her blog.  Kim’s Blog
