Weddings don’t come without their fair share of trends, and we must admit that the food truck is one we take quite a liking to. Not because it’s a trend, we just love the fun and non-traditional element of it. Forget seating protocol, four course meals, how about a whole new concept of show cooking and personalised catering. Food trucks have become the new rock and roll stars recently, where previously they were known for nothing more than greasy burgers and poor food fare. The renaissance of food trucks has broadened the mentality of many, with some seriously good, tasty and organic eats being served from such vehicles. Some are ridiculously impressive, with elegant branding, excellent service and quite a queue. Barcelona is in full swing with it’s own share too, with the likes of Rooftop Smokehouse that specialises in smoked products and then there is Caravan Made that make gourmet sandwiches.
People are looking at ways to personalise their special events, and food is becoming an increasing part of that. Formal dinners are still very much the essence, but some also like the idea of having a more casual setup for people to get food. Perhaps an ice-cream van in summer months would work for you, and keep the little ones entertained.
A van on standby is can be an alternative to your usual reception and is likely to keep guests tied over whilst the newlyweds get there photos taken. It is also a nice way to introduce new food to people, if you’re having a destination wedding in Barcelona for example, tapas styled dishes can be served at a steady pace. Or if there are different cultures involved, you can offer a fusion of cuisines. If the idea of going over the food menu for your party is too much, a simplified menu can be adapted for the truck. You can also hire waiters to bring the food to tables, if you don’t like the idea of guests queuing up for food, so there are a variety of ways that a food truck can work for your wedding.
