- Wedding: March 2015
SOOOO. I plan on using a food truck to cater our wedding. A food truck that represents FI and I perfectly. A poutine food truck. Its costing us either $10/person +$250 set up fee, or a minimum of $1000 +$250 set up fee , so basically I have to guarantee 100 people, which is fine because I doubt I’ll find a caterer for less. They make the best poutine i’ve ever had in my life. As in fresh cut locally sourced russet potatoes, they offer a traditional eastern style gravy (vegan & GF) or an even more delicious beef style gravy. Their cheese curds are locally made and also the best I’ve ever had. (Super squeaky!) They told me I can do just the standard poutine, or 4 of their most popular. I plan to do the 4 to give people some options.
So what I wanna know is, what would be your first thought seeing a Poutine Food Truck as your meal for the night at a local wedding of about 100 people? I personally don’t know anyone who doesn’t like poutine, or at least fries. And the portion is huge. They have a small size, and a big size, and they only do the big size in the food truck, which is extremely filling. (As in FI and I usually can’t finish even the small size)…
Also, rather than spending a shit ton on a dumb cake (I don’t mean to be offensive I honestly just don’t see myself spending $1000 on a cake).. We plan to bring in a carnival food truck that will do mini donuts at $5/bag.. so $500 ish. We won’t be doing any other desserts, other then special GF cheesecakes for gluten intolerant friends & family, and that will be at their seat.
What would you think of that? i just want a cool non-cookie cutter wedding lol. If you haven’t noticed.
I’m also wondering if I should do appies? The ceremony is at 1pm, then we will do the reception at a different location.. Guests will begin to arrive around 5:30, Food truck will begin serving at 6:30. The only thing I can think of is maybe doing some edible arangements or just plain fruit trays, but these people really should be feeding themselves lunch in between so maybe I don’t need to worry about it? The bar will be open at 5:30, so people won’t be completely lost….
And is a mid night snack necessary? I think it’s cool but I would only be able to budget about $300 for it, and I have no idea what it would be.
