Fun Food Truck Wedding Ideas | Here Comes The Guide

Food trucks are always a good idea...but in the midst of a global pandemic, they can be a lifesaver! Food trucks offer an outdoor dining option that's equal parts fun, flavorful, and festive. Say goodbye to the boring buffets of the past! With socially-distanced line markers and proper safety protocols in place, food trucks can provide a unique and memorable catering experience for your wedding guests.

Keep in mind that food truck vendors include exactly that: the food and the truck. Plus disposable utensils. So if you need things like tables, chairs, glassware, silverware, linens, etc. you'll want to factor that into your overall catering budget. But we love the idea of keeping things simple: Spread out some cozy blankets and floor pillows on the lawn, let your guests grab their food, and host a casual picnic-style reception they won't soon forget.

What to serve? The possibilities are endless! See these creative food truck ideas to inspire your own deliciously distinct wedding reception experience.

Highlight delicious foods from your culture, like empanadas…

Or Vietnamese Street Food!

Stick with fan-favorite comfort foods, like pizza...

Burgers and fries…

Or even an old-school ice cream truck.

Serve up local favorites, whether it's fish tacos in Hawaii...

Or lobster rolls in Maine!

The sky's really the limit, since food trucks have become as creative and varied as brick-and-mortar restaurants. From late-night bites to dessert to drinks, there's a food truck out there for every taste.

Pro Tip: Just be sure to check with your venue before inquiring with a food truck vendor. They are usually considered a BYO Catering option, and you'll want to inquire about the nitty-gritty details—like where the food truck can park, if they'll need a permit, and if they're required to be licensed and insured.
