A Trail Mix bar is a nice snack option because the couple can add a lot of variety by switching flavors and treats based on the mood of the wedding.

Having a night wedding? Provide specialty cheese, rich nuts, pralines, and pair the mix with wine.

Having an outdoor wedding? Provide pumpkin seeds, colorful dry fruits, pretzels, and minimal amounts of chocolate.

Having a large wedding? Provide a pre-mixed, specialty trail mix, and avoid peanuts.
