Loving, would really like to incorporate smores into my reception. We are having a variety of cupcakes instead of cake. Our whole reception including cocktail hour is 5 hours. Is offering smores shortly after cupcakes too much? Do many people partake?

    I don't think so. We are having a s'mores bar later during the reception as a late night snack. I'm super excited for it!

    I love s’mores. There’s never a bad time for s’mores. Just make sure you have hand wipes for people to clean up with since they can be messy.

    We had s'mores as one of our late night snacks and I think about a third of our guests ate them.

    I wanted a smores bar so badly but our venue doesn't allow open flame, so the caterer is making a smore cake! It was so delicious at the tasting. Tbh I'd probably skip the cupcakes and wait for the smores

    You could do smores as a party favor too! I think it's ok to do smores as a separate dessert table or bar too

    We are also doing s'mores bar as a late night snack. Perfect way to end a summer wedding.

    We are just serving cake for dessert but having a s'mores bar later.

    Also thinking of adding a Margarita bar along with it.

    I think s'mores would be a fun late night snack, but I'd pull them out as much later after cupcakes as possible. And I think PP is right on the money with her similar experience - I'd expect about 1/3 of your guests to have some. That being said, s'mores materials are cheap, so I'd personally have enough supplies for everyone to have one.

    We wanted s'mores too so we included s'mores cupcakes! I think guests might prefer them a bit later as a snack or even a favor but you know your crowd better than we do.
