Substituting some or all of your catering for a collection of food trucks is a huge wedding trend. Choosing to serve guests via food trucks infuses your big day with a fun, casual vibe. There are an unlimited number of ways to add them to your wedding!
Serve Exclusively from Food Trucks
It’s completely possible to serve every element of your meal via food trucks. You’ll need a few trucks and the space for them to operate. Coordinate menus between food trucks to make sure that everyone will find an appetizer, main course and dessert option they enjoy.
Mix and Match Food Truck Service
Cocktail Hour Snacks
If you and your fiancée’s favorite food truck specializes in small bites, hire it to keep guests content while you take photos and mingle before dinner. Instead of the usual cheese and crackers, serve gourmet fries, bite-sized kabobs or egg rolls. The same style of trucks may be a good fit for after dancing snacks.
Just the Main Course
Burgers, tacos, pizza or stir fry make a great main course for a casual wedding. Add a buffet of condiments, salad and side dishes so your trucks can focus on making the main course. This will keep lines moving and guests full.
For Sweet Treats
Cupcake and ice cream trucks are popping up everywhere. Serve dessert from a food truck for sweet treats your guests will love and great photo ops for the happy couple.
Ditch the Bar
Instead of a traditionally stocked bar, find a local brewery or winery with a mobile serving station. Work with them to create a drink menu with a variety of options. You can also use a food truck to serve coffee with dessert or fun smoothies during cocktail hour.
Add Food Trucks to another Event
Before Your Ceremony
Instead of adding a food truck to your wedding reception, station one outside your ceremony. Your guests can help themselves to a donut and coffee before an early afternoon ceremony, or snack on gourmet popcorn before a later service.
The Day Before
Eliminate the headache of coordinating food truck service on your wedding day and opt for a rehearsal dinner catered by your favorite truck. A smaller number of guests and greater flexibility with your venue make this a more feasible option for some couples.
