article imageFood trucks becoming a hot trend with new brides and grooms

Weddings can cost a fortune and for a young couple it can create debt that can haunt newlyweds for several years, but the hottest trend in food could be just the answer to help lower the cost of the big day and create a buzz with guests.
According to social media platform Pinterest, the site has seen a 30 percent increase in food trucks being used at weddings. The idea seems a bit out there, but when evaluating the cost and the possible variety of good eats, it makes perfect sense.
Reports have the average cost per person of $60 or more just for a few appetizers and a catered dinner, but the cost of using a truck is just $20, a savings of $4,000 based on 100 guests. The savings isn't the only positive as these meals on wheels also give guests more options and likely a meal that comes out hot and juicy, not precooked and warmed hours afterwards.
Food Revolt did a terrific article on the subject and suggested that using two or three trucks can create a menu that fits any theme, including gluten free, vegetarian, tropical, or just good old fashion BBQ, though the latter isn't best when wearing an expensive white gown.
For those cold night, hot food ideas will keep everyone warm and the reception going at full speed. Warm nights and guests can be served cooler dishes with the idea of keeping all the people at your big day more comfortable and for those partying late into the night, some nice greasy food is perfect when the alcohol level is a bit high.
Food trucks have become the rage in big cities and for good reason. Hot food, good service, and a terrific variety of dishes makes everyone happy and for the lucky couple, it could help save years of distress with a more affordable way of feeding family and friends by keeping the finances in check.
