10 Wedding Food Truck Ideas for Your Big Day
Written by: Sophia Young
So you’re finally preparing those wedding rings. You and your soon-to-be spouse are brainstorming together, creating mood boards, and sketching out what the entire thing will look like in your head. Maybe you’re considering the traditional route—a big white dress, a grand venue with awe-inspiring decorations, and a food menu filled with dishes that you love.
News flash: weddings don’t always have to be traditional! You can wear a more casual wedding dress or tie the knot at a non-traditional wedding venue like a planetarium or a library.
However, if you really want to make your wedding an event your guests will talk about for days on end, food truck catering is the way to go!
Food can make or break any event, including your big day. So veer away from the boring ol’ dried chicken and side salads! Instead, opt for something that’ll give your guests a unique experience.
Below are some ideas that you, your partner, and every person in your wedding will love.
Pizza is always a good idea, especially at events that’ll go late into the night. After all the dancing and drinking, give your guests a delicious slice to snack on with a pizza food truck!
Not only is pizza everyone’s guilty pleasure, but it’s also versatile and affordable. You can expand your selections to accommodate everyone! Don’t forget to have options for your vegan and vegetarian friends and your guests who can’t eat a slice without meat on top.
Try These Tasty Tacos
If you’re going to have a fiesta-style buffet for your wedding, adding a taco truck might just make it all the more fun and exciting! For an elevated street taco experience, you can opt for food trucks that offer entrees with fresh and organic ingredients and impressive meat and seafood selections.
Some food truck options will also serve heavier options such as carne asada bowls, burritos, and quesadillas. If you want to give your guests some snacks while they dance the night away, check if the food truck provider you’re talking to offers chips and guacamole or salsa dips.
What’s not to love about a freshly prepared sandwich? Make it even more special with high-quality Italian cheeses and meats on authentic focaccia bread. Your guests’ tastebuds will definitely be in for an adventure they won’t soon forget!
The best part about sandwiches? Your guests can customize their orders to their hearts’ content. Whether they want a healthier option or something that’ll satisfy their cravings, paninis can be anything they want them to be.
Shelled seafood? At a wedding? Why not! If you’re having a coastal-inspired wedding and your guests are seafood lovers, then a shuck truck just makes perfect sense. Have an expert caterer onsite that will shuck everything from juicy oysters, fresh clams, and fan favorite lobster rolls.
Remember to check on your guests and their allergies, though!
Warm Hearts, Warm Cookies
Nothing will warm the bellies and hearts of your guests like a fresh batch of ooey-gooey cookies. To make your cookie food truck more interesting, give them a slew of flavors to choose from!
You can go for flavors that everyone loves, like chocolate chip and smores, and then dazzle it up with options such as funfetti and blueberry cheesecake.
Screaming For Joy (and For Ice Cream!)
A cup or cone of ice cream is a sweet, sweet reprieve on hot summer weddings. So let your guests indulge in a cold and yummy treat after devouring everything on their table.
Variety will make your guests come back for more! So don’t forget to add traditional crowd-pleasers such as vanilla and strawberry and unique flavors like honeycomb and mint chip. In addition, have vegan options available for your non-dairy eating friends and family members.
Bananas For Baonanas
Looking for a healthier dessert alternative? Baonanas is always an option! Banana pudding is a great dessert for those who love the texture of tiramisu and the sweet and distinct flavors of bananas.
Let your guests choose from various flavors like s’mores, matcha, and oreo. But, of course, don’t forget the vegan alternatives!

A Cup of Joe For The Soul
Sometimes, grand events like weddings get the best of us. We just need a little pick-me-up that’ll give us a much-needed energy boost.
Give yourself and your guests a caffeine kick with a coffee food truck! Plus, most coffee food trucks have a ton of pastry options included. Talk about hitting two birds with one stone!
A memorable wedding wouldn’t be complete without some alcohol! From beer on tap to bottles and bottles of wine, cocktail caravans or mobile bars will have everything you and your guests need to get a taste of that buzz.
For friends and family that can’t drink, offer non-alcoholic options such as kombucha, mocktails, and fruit juices.
