Many of the food trucks you see parked outside of popular places around the country like the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in Los Angeles, the Metropolitan Museum of art on 5th Avenue, or on your local city corner, are now parking themselves outside of wedding receptions. More and more couples are saving money and giving a boost to small businesses by having local food trucks cater their big day.
Food trucks are an ongoing wedding craze—they're a cheap and trendy alternative to a commonplace buffet or course by course sit-down dinner. They’re a great way to get special, unique, fresh food, out to guests on the fly. Because a food truck appearance at weddings is hardly overdone and relatively uncommon, guests are excited to see trucks they know and love at your wedding.
Many couples feel as though the food trucks bring something unique to weddings that highlight their own personal tastes as a couple, as well as celebrating the local cuisine. Some couples have the food trucks come as an excitement starter between the ceremony and reception. Others schedule the truck to arrive a few hours into the reception to provide a late-night pick-me-up after a night of champagne and dancing.
