Incorporating your wedding theme into an outdoor picnic style wedding is super easy. More and more couples are bringing something new to modern weddings by having local gourmet food trucks cater their big day. Not only is it inexpensive, this unique idea highlights both the couple's personal taste and the local cuisine.
You could opt to hire trucks in place of a buffet or sit-down dinner or have the truck arrive later into the reception to provide late-night menu or 'surprise comfort food' for guests after a night of champagne and dancing.

Compared to traditional catering services, food trucks offer a lot of flexibility when it comes to sampling. Instead of scheduling appointments with caterers, couples can simply wander from truck to truck at their own time. Personalized menus are another feature that many food trucks boast - so you shouldn’t hesitate to ask for what you want.

Despite their many advantages, food trucks do have their downsides. Parking can often be a drawback. For example, if the wedding is to take place in a ballroom, there typically is not a prime space for the truck. Also, most food trucks don’t coordinate rentals or offer a full-service staff. You also have to make sure that the truck has insurance and will provide all of the items needed to serve like napkins, cups and utensils.
