Come on, who doesn’t like street meat?

Food trucks are becoming more and more popular with couples looking to forego the “traditional” for something fun and non-conventional.

Food trucks offer couples a creative way to incorporate an old staple into their wedding reception, while highlighting the personal food tastes of the bride and groom.

For couples watching their budget but still wanting their guests to experience something creative, food trucks offer a lot of flexibility when it comes to selection. Don’t be quick to dismiss truck food as greasy budget food that lacks flavour and offers a limited selection. Food trucks offer a selection of vegetarian, vegan, ethnic and comfort foods and because many trucks are small businesses, most are receptive to personalizing a menu and customize the service to fit your wishes.

If however, you want to appease “the traditionalists” and provide a more formal reception meal, a food truck can still provide something unique for your guests. For example, a food truck can offer guests snacks and refreshments in between your ceremony and the reception and after a night of celebrating and dancing “your meal on wheels caterer” can serve up a midnight desert and fun bites.

For some of your guests, your reception may be the first time they’ve enjoyed the “comfort food” experience since their parents took them to the ball game years ago. Food trucks might not always be suitable for a traditional wedding, but they’re ideal for the more casual and relaxed celebrations – and usually much less expensive than traditional catering.

As always, follow along at our blog.  We post lots of content that will help you create your perfect, hopefully stress-free, wedding day.

Hi Belma

You were fantastic! You exceeded our expectations. You thought of everything, even key moments for our photos.

The Enduring Promises online Console was very user friendly and supplied us with ideas that we couldn’t have come up with on our own.

Everyone at Enduring Promises was a pleasure to deal with and wanted to make our experience stress free.

You are a sweetheart! You really made us feel comfortable and at ease.

Thank you for helping us make Nick’s Grandmother a part of our wedding ceremony as it was very important to us to include her. With so many things going on, it was nice to be able to rely on someone who could understand our direction and help us toward it. The rehearsal helped us have confidence for the big day.

You will forever be in our hearts and memories.
