Food Truck Wedding Receptions
At my niece’s wedding a few months ago, she fed the troops via food trucks rather than a buffet or seated dinner. It was incredibly fun, quirky, delicious, interesting, and thrifty-compared to more traditional formats.
I would estimate one food truck per every 50 guests. That way, there’s no bottleneck waiting in line, and can be handled as a buffet would be-by table numbers called.
There are so many varieties and menus available with food trucks! My niece had one with corn dogs (OMG); one with salads and Paninis, and one with Mexican food. And at the end of the night, the ice cream truck came, bells ringing!
Of course, you’ll have to check with your venue to see if it is allowed or even possible at their location. I would guess that the less formal venues (barns, farms, open areas) would be more workable, but it is something to consider!

I attended that wedding and it was really lots of fun. They started with a huge sharing table, my first. I’ve seen a few since at different functions, great way to chat with other guests who gather around. Food trucks were awesome and perfectly unconventional. It was fun, the food was delicious, we danced and it didn’t cost a fortune. Great idea!!!
