Best Food Ideas to Serve at Your Exit Station!

There are so many benefits to having an exit station filled with delicious foods or offering late night snacks to your guests. This delightful addition not only elevates your wedding experience but ensures for a memorable goodbye. Having an exit station is just a small element on top of everything else you have already planned or added, yet the best thing about this is that it does not need to be anything over the top! It can be remarkably budget-friendly or more extravagant, depending on your preference, and effortlessly set up for guests to conveniently grab as they make their way out.

1.) Personal Pizzas
Everyone loves pizza and it is super filling which is even better! I personally love this idea because if you wanted to get really creative with it, you could personalize your pizza box. Whether it says the newlyweds’ names, “thank you for coming,” a play on words, or even just matches the color scheme, the options are endless!

2.) French Fries
Similar to pizza, you cannot go wrong with french fries. They’re so easy to make in mass amounts which guarantees enough for everyone. You can offer different mini dipping sauces as well. You can also serve french fries in so many different ways, whether it like the photo above, a mini bag, or a cup, & even better if it’s personalized! In addition, loaded fries are another option. Serve up an assortment of loaded fries, such as truffle fries with parmesan and rosemary, chili cheese fries, or sweet potato fries with marshmallow drizzle.

3.) Mini Sliders
These are adorable and the most perfect finger food. However, if you have a lot of guests that are vegetarian, vegan, or any dietary restrictions, these would go along perfectly with french fries.

4.) Churros
Something sweet that everyones loves. These are the cutest addition to your wedding and are super versatile as to how they can be served.

5.) Empanadas
The best things about empanadas is #1, they’re delicious, and #2, there are so many variations! You can offer both sweet and savory and set them up buffet style. That way people can grab them as they are leaving or have a snack while they continue to enjoy the event.

6.) Cater
Many people or couples already have their favorite go-to late night fast food, why not incorporate that into your wedding? If it’s something you and your significant love and many of your guests know about the both of you, it is a great way to add a personal twist to your exit station!

7.) Soft Pretzels
Soft Pretzels are a huge fan-favorite. These can be mini pretzel bites, regular sized, pretzel twists, or even a different shape like a heart. However, it is important to keep in mind that these can quickly taste stale if not left in or near a warmer!

8.) Milk and Cookies
Offering milk & cookies is so simple yet so cute and memorable. This is easy and hassle free and can be offered in mini bags for guests to take home or on mini trays for guests that are still there.

9.) Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Grilled cheese sandwiches with different types of cheese and add-ons like bacon, tomato, or caramelized onions for added flavor.

9.) Fried Chicken and Waffles:
Serve bite-sized pieces of fried chicken paired with mini waffles, allowing guests to create their own savory-sweet combinations. Offer a variety of sauces like maple syrup, hot sauce, or honey butter.

10.) Honeymoon Inspired Food:
Depending where you are spending your honeymoon, if there’s a popular food item from that region that you think could be served well in a grab & go scenario, why not include it? It is a fantastic way to incorporate the excitement of the trip and share that with your loved ones. Since it is your exit station, you can also get creative with how you decorate it or what details you device to include!
