Tips For Food Truck Weddings

Food trucks have long been a favorite lunchtime and late-night food option, but they’re not just for local farmers’ markets and festivals anymore. Street food has become the next big trend in weddings and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down. Food trucks are a casual, tasty and budget friendly way to serve your guests. So if you’re interested in joining the trend, here’s what you need to know:

 

1. COORDINATE WITH THE VENUE

If you’re set on having a food truck, seek out venues that can accommodate your vision. Do they have the space and equipment to house such a service? Is there a large enough seating area nearby?

 

2. WEATHER CONDITIONS

Think of the weather. Consider all of the options when deciding on where to station your food service. Will there be a possibility of rain, wind or high temperatures? Ask the venue whether an indoor or outdoor location is possible and what type of equipment is provided and will need to be supplied.

 

3. TIMING IS EVERYTHING

Discuss timing once you have selected a food truck. Ensure that there is enough time to serve your guests, and that everyone has had the opportunity to eat before the food truck departs.

 

4. PICK YOUR FAVORITE DISHES

Choose a smaller selection of food options for your big day that will appeal to everyone. This will help keep costs at a minimum and keep the line moving. Make sure to also discuss sides, toppings and refreshment options.

 

5. SERVICE COORDINATION

Before hiring a food truck service, make sure they are capable of serving a large group of people in a short amount of time. Discuss presentation, service staff and supplies needed to have a successful event.
