Hire a Food Truck to Cater Your Wedding

If you are looking for a unique way to cater a wedding whether it’s big or small, consider local food trucks. Now you might be thinking why on Earth would someone want to have a food truck cater a wedding, but truth be told, there are all kinds of options when it comes to what selections you can have for both dinner and dessert.

The best thing about food trucks is that they can show up anywhere and begin their usual routine; if you are going for something really unique for your wedding, especially if it is outdoors in the summer, this might be an option for you. It’s not only a way to provide something different for your guests that usually expect either a buffet or plated dinner, but is a great way to support a local company from the town you have grown up in, or one that you are visiting.

A food truck can be considered for any part of the meal, including small appetizers to go with pre-dinner drinks, desserts to compliment the cake cutting or even a midnight snack after everyone has burned off dinner while dancing up a storm. Since food trucks usually focus on only one or a few menu items, it’s generally pretty easy to figure out what kind of company you’ll be looking for.

Due to their very mobile nature, its easy to research and read reviews on your cities favorite food trucks. These are also a fantastic idea for destination weddings because even though the city may not be familiar to you, social media sites will help you easily track down some information on the food truck and what they have to offer. Some food trucks have a wealth of staff that will cater to you and create unique spreads of food; others are run by just one or two people and your guests will have to line up to choose what they want. But who would complain when they can have a unique dining experience offered by someone with a passion for food?

Delicious DIY Wedding Favours

When thinking about your wedding, many brides and grooms don’t think much about the wedding favours. While beautiful wedding favours can be purchased, it will always mean a lot more if wedding guests know that the couple made the favours with love and with them in mind. Even better is to give them a favour that they can take home and use instead of letting it sit on the shelf and gather dust. That said, where would someone start when it comes to making favours? Here are some easy ideas.

Cake Pops

These are the big new thing at parties, baby showers and weddings. You can make them yourself with cake mix and frosting, as well as some decorative items like sprinkles. You can make them your wedding colors, or you can decorate them like little bride and grooms. A delicious treat for every wedding guest!

Herb Plant

The plant that can keep on giving. You can decorate a clay pot that the herbs will grow in and this would be a great addition to anyone’s kitchen. You can even add a name stake into the plant and it can double as a place tag. If you have a lot of people coming in from out of town though, make sure you take into consideration the transportation of the plant.

Olive Oil

Gather bottles, olive oil, corks and some herbs and you can make your own olive oil. Guests will love this and it’s something practical that they can use. A week or two before your wedding, add your selected herbs to the bottle so that it has time to add flavour to the oil. Make sure to add a custom label on the bottle with your names and the date of your wedding for an added touch.

Chocolate Spoon

All you’ll need is bakers chocolate, plastic spoons, bags and ribbon. Melt the chocolate and dip the spoon in it; place on wax paper to cool. Once cool, package the spoon and tie with a ribbon that represents your wedding colors. Make sure to also add a tag with your names and wedding date. You can also package the spoon with two mini marshmallows and a package of hot chocolate for a hot drink treat.
