What’s the latest trend in wedding receptions? Skipping the traditional caterers, and hiring food trucks, instead! We’re talking gourmet trucks that serve things like tacos, grilled cheese sandwiches, and cupcakes.
So, why are they so popular? For one thing, food trucks are much less expensive than a sit-down dinner, or a catered buffet. They’re also unique and creative, and allow the newlyweds to show off their personal taste.
It’s also easier for couples to figure out what they want to serve at their wedding, because instead of scheduling “tastings” with several caterers, they simply go from truck to truck at a weekend food festival.
Some newlyweds use trucks for all the food at their reception, while others schedule the truck to arrive for a surprise “farewell” dessert, or a late-night snack.
If you’re thinking about hiring food trucks to cater your wedding, make sure you think ahead. Some venues don’t have places where food trucks can park. Also, most food trucks don’t coordinate rentals for tables and chairs, or offer a full-service staff.
