Food Truck Weddings Are Becoming More And More Popular Nowadays — And For Good Reason

“Have you ever imagined having your wedding catered by a food truck? Heck, maybe that is some people’s dream. Dream or not, more and more couples are getting their weddings catered by mobile catering trucks. When you think about how great food truck food is, and the amount of money you could be saving, it really is a no-brainer.

“While some folks might be wondering if weddings being catered by food trucks is just a trend, these same folks should be pondering this question: Is saving money a trend? Realistically, getting a wedding catered by a mobile kitchen is a smart option, because of the money factor alone.

“According to foodrevolt.com, hiring a food truck could save a couple around $3,500. If you could save $3,500 (yes, $3,500!), why wouldn’t you? That money could go toward the honeymoon, or it could simply stay in the bank. Nonetheless, that is a lot of dough.

“Here’s the logic they used for that one:

““The average American wedding is running about $66 dollars per guest for reception catering so if you’re running the average number of guests, then you’re looking at around $8,844 in spend.  You should be able to negotiate $20 a guest for the night which would put you at $5,360 for two trucks…saving you around $3,500 bucks!”

“So, if you think saving money is a trend, then, sure, maybe food-truck-catered weddings are also a trend.

“The best part about the food truck industry — well, one of the best parts, that is — is the fact that there is so much variety. When thinking of a lunch truck, most people probably think of the traditional hot dog stand, or a taco truck, but there are so many unique concepts that also call the food truck industry home. Heck, the crazier the meal, the better. By the way, there is nothing wrong with hot dog stands or taco trucks — we 100 percent support them and the delicious food they have to offer.

“As foodrevolt.com points out, a good wedding is all about setting the mood, and a lunch truck completely helps out in the ambiance department. Getting a food truck to cater a wedding is considered cool nowadays, and it can also display to the guests that the act of a wedding is a celebration — and people should have fun at celebrations, and weddings.”
