Wouldn’t it be nice if you could bring great food to your wedding reception without worrying about all the caterers, plates, and mess? With food trucks, you can. Designed to give restauranteurs the chance to offer high-end dishes and great street food on-the-go, food trucks are an economical, welcome addition to large events like weddings—as long as you plan carefully beforehand. Here are three tips for using food trucks at your wedding reception:
Call Your City and Venue
Before you book that food truck, contact your wedding reception venue and ask if you are allowed to bring in outside catering. Also, contact the city to see if food trucks are permitted to park in public lots and streets. If you want to park the truck outdoors on your venue’s property, make sure you have enough space to set up tables, chairs, and decorative displays.
Think about how many people are coming to your wedding, how many trucks you would need to accommodate your guests, and how long the food will take to prepare. If you have questions about what the process would be like in person, talk with your caterer to learn more about ordering turnaround time and capacity.
Limit Menu Options
Since making choices in a hurry can be difficult for indecisive people, consider working with your caterer to limit menu options to speed up the ordering and cooking process. For example, if you want to serve fresh gourmet pizza at your event, you might offer an Italian Margherita pizza option and your favorite pie—instead of the entire regular menu.
