2nd: Food trucks should be chosen to offer a variety of foods including appetizers, beverages, main meal and dessert. This will cover you from cocktail hour to dessert with no worries of when will this arrive and will they cake make it until cake cutting if you’re having an outdoor wedding.
3rd: You should plan 1 food truck for every 75 guests to avoid waiting in long lines. Most wedding have an average of 150 guess and with normal catering you must buy silverware, the food, and the service of the food. In this case you buy two food trucks and you have your wedding guest covered
4th: Food trucks come in many different styles and can be chosen to complement the decor and atmosphere of the wedding. They will match your theme which will tie in the food truck to your event. Who wouldn’t love this!
