If a standard seated dinner or buffet seems a bit too formal for your casual wedding reception, there is an alternative: food truck wedding catering. Turns out that many food trucks from around the country will cater events, and couples are totally jumping on the trend. Guests love the novelty of getting their street food favorites at a wedding, and the eats are sure to be top-notch. Just make sure that your wedding venue can accommodate a food truck, and work with your venue coordinator or planner to create a system so guests aren't spending half of your reception waiting on line. Depending on the number of guests you're feeding, you might even opt to book multiple food trucks—particularly if you're relying on the trucks to provide all of your wedding food.
A bit wary of this unique take on wedding catering? You can have it both ways—book a traditional caterer to provide your main meal, but hire a food truck to provide appetizers during cocktail hour, dessert, or a late-night snack for a fun twist—or cater your rehearsal dinner with a truck or two.
Check out these food truck wedding catering favorites from around the country, from tacos to ice cream, pizza to BBQ, and much, more.
