in-and-out burger weddingMove over dessert bar (that’s soo 2008)…enter the Wedding Food Truck!

It seems that everything else had gone mobile, so why shouldn’t food follow suit. Food trucks have long been a mainstay in Hollywood and New York City during day-long production shoots and pedestrian-style
downtown dining . And in fact, these mini-restaurants on wheels have gotten a bad rap over the years, most often being dubbed the “roach coach” for their seemingly unsanitary conditions. But it appears that the mobile food truck industry is cleaning up their act and revamping their persona, so much so, they’re blazing new trails into custom event catering.

Everything fron In-n-Out burgers to cupcake sweets, the wedding food truck is popping up at weddings all over the nation. I must admit, it’s a fun way to incorporate some of the unexpected into a “been-there, done-that” ho-hum wedding. What better way to throw your guests for a loop and put a smile on their otherwise yawning faces as they wait for you to finish up your photos during the unbearably long cocktail hour? You can pick any theme you want to coordinate with the flavor of your special event. But I have yet to see how this concept can be incorporated into the upscale wedding. I’m not saying that it can’t be pulled off well, but I haven’t seen evidence as yet. I’m open to ideas though…what do you think?

If you had to choose:

  • ice cream food truck at weddingwedding catering truck
  • photo booth
  • dessert bar
  • cigar bar
  • signature cocktail bar
  • smoothie bar /coffees bar (I guess that falls under food, huh?)

Which would be the most fun for your guests? Leave your comments and suggestions here…
