Trend Alert: Snack Bars

The first time I saw a midnight snack at a wedding, I was floored- this was the best. thing. ever. That was years and years ago now, and that little sandwich station has been pushed aside in my dreams for some magnificent alternatives. I would be thrilled to see any of these snack stations at a wedding I was attending. I can see the candy bar losing popularity next to these babies!

Snack Bars at weddings... love this idea!

ONE: A pie bar, seriously! I’m not sure that my sweet tooth could get any happier than this! Plus it’s completely darling and you would get to use every cute cake stand you could get your hands on.

TWO: A cookies and milk station was the second midnight snack I experienced at weddings. It was amazing and I think every wedding needs one. But I’m not sure that it could get any classier than this station with milk shooters! Plus, I don’t know that anyone could turn down an Oreo.

THREE: These fruit cones are a great summer wedding snack. I love the idea of them as a sweet treat between ceremony and reception for guests as they mill about an outdoor location.

FOUR: This trail mix bar doubles as favours for a small gathering. Guests pick out a mason jar with a sweet thank you note and fill to their hearts content (mine would be mostly smarties… don’t judge me 😉

FIVE: I love a good bag of popcorn! This station features baskets and baskets of popcorn with seasonings of your choice. I’d add in some sweet fixins’ but that you know how I feel about smarties!

SIX: Mini food is the cutest food… isn’t it? These mini grilled cheese sandwiches paired with tomato soup shots would make the perfect snack to tide guests over at cocktail hour or to give them some hearty nibbles after a night of drinks and dancing.

SEVEN: Set those grilled cheese sandwiches next to this tower of mini burgers and fry cones? You’d have some very happy wedding guests! I’m not sure I’ve ever seen such classy burgers!

EIGHT: I love my ice cream, and I’m sure I’m not alone! Why not treat guests to the perfect sundae- crafted by them with all the toppings they could dream up? This sundae bar has it all!

NINE: This chips and salsas buffet is from a Fiesta, but who wouldn’t love a refreshing snack like this after a hot outdoor wedding? Or a night of dancing?


I’m going to sign off now and go grab myself a snack! If I could choose any of these snack bars to raid, at the moment I’d have to choose the mini grilled cheese and tomato soups. But hey, I wouldn’t complain about any of them! What’s your favourite? And have you ever been treated to a wedding snack bar? Tell us about it in the comments!
