The Most Original Food Trucks for Your Wedding

by Wendy and Marina, authors of Bodas de Cuento

We have been seeing them on the streets of the main cities in countries such as USA, Mexico, and China. Food trucks are typical in many places around the world and, although in Spain they arrived recently, they have become a true must for any event or party.

I’m sure you’ve been to an event where there was one. But, can you imagine them at a wedding? We can! In fact, we have included food trucks in some of the weddings we have organised and we can guarantee that they provide a unique touch to the cocktail or even a refreshment when dancing, when enjoying a hot dog or a crepe while enjoying the music is a fantastic idea. Take it from the wedding planner!

You can even set up a pretty lemonade bar to welcome your guests before the ceremony. If the truck is pretty, you can use it to decorate the wedding area.

Although food trucks were initially linked to fast food, they have become true mobile restaurants that allow us to enjoy delicious and even haute cuisine dishes. Options are endless. From a desert truck to enjoy after the reception to different vintage trucks that will surprise your guests with a varied cocktail-type dinner.

Some companies offer the option of renting the caravan, RV or food truck and you can use them to serve the food and drinks you wish, while many other companies offer the complete gastronomic service, each one being specialised in something different.

Signature tapas, savoury pastries, cold cuts or vermouth for a delicious aperitif. Gourmet hot dogs, burgers or sandwiches, artisan pizzas or international dishes like tacos, nachos, sushi or savoury crepes to replace or complement the menu.

If you love deserts, you can always hire sweet trucks with doughnuts, cupcakes, waffles, ice-creams or the typical churros. Is your mouth watering from thinking of these suggestions? Your guests will love them…

Another idea could be drink trucks, which could serve artisan beers, organic wines or from different denominations of origin, mojitos, gin and tonics or other delicious cocktails. It’s sure to be a success in the open bar or the aperitif.

Aside from the dishes you can enjoy, food trucks are perfect for any celebration: outdoors, industrial, romantic or urban weddings, food trucks always provide a casual and festive look to any wedding, no matter its style. And they are always picture perfect!
