Food trucks are famous for creating delicious dishes, often made from non-traditional food combinations. That’s a big reason they are often called on to cater wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners and bridesmaids luncheons. But did you know that your gourmet food truck caterer can arrange for all those things you’ll need to rent … and then get them picked up and carted away after the last dance is just a memory.
When planning your wedding reception, make a list of all the things you will need. Next, go down the list and determine what you can borrow from friends or rent from a service. Your food truck caterer is experienced and will know what your wedding reception requires based on the number of people you’ve invited.
At a dinner, for example, you will need several dishes, glasses and flatware per guest based on the courses you are serving and the wines you’ve chosen. Planning to start off with a cocktail hour? You can expect to use at least three glasses per person. If you want to rent linens for the tables, don’t forget to order extras for the tables holding your cake and guestbook. If you need to rent chairs for the ceremony or cocktail party, always order at least 10 extras in case additional guests show up (it does happen) or a rental chair arrives damaged.
There are plenty of different things you can do to make your wedding reception memorable, such as renting a cotton-candy or popcorn machine. Your food truck caterer should be able to make those arrangements too. Just be sure that a reliable person knows exactly how the equipment works before the celebration gets under way.
Arrange to see the dishes, linen and glassware selections from the rental company before making final arrangements. Ask if the set up and delivery fees are included in the order or if that is an extra charge. Most rental companies will require a non-refundable deposit or about one-third the total rental package price. Once you know what you need and how much it costs, let your food truck caterer handle all details, including getting those rentals off the premises and back to the rental company after the reception.
