How to Do Food Trucks the Right Way at a Wedding
These days, food trucks are no faux pas when it comes to wedding catering. They're a cheap, trendy way to get good, fresh food out to guests on the fly, and guests are excited to see trucks they know and love at your wedding. However, this is a wedding — not a street fair — after all, so here's how you should do food trucks the right way at your wedding.
Introduce Your Family to New Things
Hire Something That's Internationally Acclaimed on the Cheap
Even if you saw the food truck on the Food Network or think the truck is way too popular to be affordable, check it out anyway. You may be surprised by how affordable most food trucks are. Your guests will be mighty impressed and think it's so cool. Keep your eyes peeled for restaurant-turned-truck options, too. Available to some locations in California, In-N-Out has a cookout trailer to make burgers remotely. Sadly, it does not include french fries and shakes. You'll just have to hire another food truck for those!
Set Up Wait Staff
Alternatively, see if the food truck will let you hire waiters to pass out the dishes. It can be much cheaper than hiring wait staff from other companies, who will tack on more fees. In addition, guests can actually sit down and enjoy the food, rather than stand and eat, which can be a messy process!
Make It Disposable
Renting plates and silverware is a major expense, but bypass those charges by serving the food on the disposable plates of your choice, like these bamboo food baskets.
