Your wedding feast was cleared away hours ago and you still have dozens of people cranking out moves on the dance floor. How do you keep them satisfied all night?  With these late night wedding snacks of course!

While it may seem a little OTT to cater for late-night snacks, chances are both you and your guests will be grateful when a few trays of nibbles make an appearance as the reception parties on.

On the flip side, if you don’t want to cater for a sit down affair, you can look at some playful ideas for snacks that guests can nibble on during a stand-up function.

With the emergence of the drip cake as the latest trend in dessert options, snacks and nibbles are also taking a more whimsical route and become reminiscent of childhood parties.

If you bring these babies out after an hour or so on the dancefloor, your guests will love you for it.

Popcorn is an all-round favourite. Image: New Trend Party Hire

You could embrace the full carnival experience by hiring a popcorn machine for your reception and let guests help themselves, or if that clashes with your wedding style, simple paper cups or cones of popcorn will be appreciated by peckish guests.

You can also customise the cups to match your colour scheme.

The sugar rush will become a hit and a give guests the energy they need for another hour or two on the dance floor.
