The other evening, after a night of good music, drinks and lovely company, some friends and I proceeded to a local pizza parlor for delicious late-night carb-loaded snacks. As we sat down to eat our delicious pesto and cheese pizza slices, we had the opportunity to see a bride, groom and some of her wedding party members come into the establishment and order slices for themselves. This being said, the bride was fully dressed in her white wedding gown, with only her groom's cream colored coat to cover her shoulders. The bridesmaids were also still dressed in their bridesmaid dresses and the groomsmen in their suit and bowties. It was a sort of spectacle to observe, but it makes sense. They're people also, and like most people who have just finished an exhausting day's worth of glamour, glitz and smiles, they too would seek out refueling. What better than the only open pizza place downtown whose slices are also the best ones you'll find in the city?
This got me thinking about late night snack options for events, especially when the hours slowly start creeping upon us. However, with party events where drinks are served, going to a different location is not always ideal; too many people, too many drinks, it can get become a bit of a mess for the bride and groom. So, why not bring the late-night munchies to the guests? Food trucks immediately seemed like the perfect fix! Not only can they come to you, but food trucks have the ability to serve a large number of people at an impressive rate. But what kind, and how many? So many questions! So we took to the internet and researched possible answers for you who might be interested in late-night food options.
California sunsets and In-N-Out have a lot in common. Aside from both being on the West coast, they're both also like nothing you've ever experienced in your life. Your guests will swoon so hard, they'll melt just as hard as the cheese that's on their burgers when they see the iconic arrow and bold red letters come their way.

Say it slowly, and like you want it more than anything else. Donuts. Just biting into one of these savory morsels makes you feel all sorts of things, guilt being one of those feelings, but we don't listen to that feeling because 'deliciously satisfied' is much more potent. Just ask your taste buds as your mouth begins to water upon smelling these sugary delights. Your guests will forever love you. Maybe take it up a notch by offering caramel filled churros, or vanilla, or maybe even chocolate. The world is your oyster--erm, churro. Donut? Everything!
(#BRB we're going to go get one-- or a dozen).
Someone call Idina Menzel because it just got Frozen over here. Delicious and refreshing, your guests are sure to be singing "Let It Go" by the end of the night, because "the cold never bothered them anyway."
One word, like Madonna. These babies need no introduction as they are the epitome of delicious and mouth-watering (sorry, donuts, but Tacos > Donuts). Easy to eat and filling, this late night option needs no introduction. Tacos are always an option. Always.
There are so many options for late night snacks. What would you have as an option for your guests? Thai curry? Korean BBQ? Oh, the options! We're excited, can you tell?
