“We love to make a suggestion that the couples add on a fun, late-night snack for their guests. I think this is always a pleasant surprise,” says Carly Ziemer, director of sales at Together & Company. “We suggest to do something that is easy to eat or easy to grab and go. Set up your late-night bites by your exit and have mini to-go containers for them, so [guests] can just walk out the door with their treat.”

Here are a few popular options, both sweet and savory, from three local caterers to get you thinking about your own bites.
