There is a really awesome ice cream truck in Seattle that people often get to come to their weddings!

 

Personally I wouldn’t bring McDonald’s in (but that’s because I don’t eat it) but if that would make you and your fiance happy then go for it! Doughnuts, however, would be much appreciated in my book. 🙂

At the end of the night, I’d be sooo all over some Tim Bits & Coffee !!

They’d be great on their own, or as an addition to a Midnight Buffet / Sweet Table.

And they please EVERYONE… young or old.

(Not so much with Fast Food Burgers… more often than not these days people don’t do fast food or McDonalds)

I like the idea of an Ice Cream / Food Truck too… but I think they tend to “seperate” the Guests as then you have some inside and some outside… and well it spurs some folks on to leave “as they are already in the Parking Lot”… and except for the younger Guests, I don’t so many Older ones GET IT.

Hope this helps,

Maybe not fast food from a chain restaurant, but ice cream would be awesome and some delicious burgers!  My mum loves to throw parties and she would have the Schwan truck come and people could get whatever they wanted for ice cream.  I want that right now!

An ice cream truck sounds like a cute treat. Stacked Mcdonald’s burgers just sounds gross and nasty. I would go for the ice cream.

@This Time Round:  Timbits would not please me.  I’m a foody and I can’t stand Tim Horton’s – when they switched to par baking, I had been nearly done, and that was the final nail.  I’d like to think I just wouldn’t have any myself, but at that point in the night I’d probably mutter and roll my eyes.  I shouldn’t, but I think I might.  But an Ice Cream truck?  That’s just flat out fun!  And it’s an event/experience, as well as a snack.  Of course there are others who will roll their eyes at the ice cream truck, so ya know….

Do what you want.  No one who likes McD’s or Timbits will NOT like ice cream, and YOu want ice cream, so have ice cream.  Your wedding, your rules!

And I agree with secretlyabee:  Burgers from McD’s WILL BE Gross & Nasty… (says the gal who worked there as a teenager).  By the time they arrive (someone gonna go get them ??)… they’ll be less than perfect.  Because if it is a large order… and we assume it will be for a Wedding, the burgers will be made in sets… so even if the last set will be warm (doubtful it will be anything close to hot) the first set made will be cold & greasy.  Ick !!

Go with the Tim Bits, no issues with keeping things Hot or Cold, and you can pick them up a bit earlier in the day (maybe have someone do a run between the Ceremony and the Reception). And as a Canadian, I can tell you they’ll be a HIT for sure.  Such an unexpected treat.

AND BONUS… any leftover (ya right like that is gonna happen) can be taken home.

Not so much with the Burgers… leftovers will be going in the trash !!

That said, ICE CREAM is a hit with just about everyone… no argument there.

But I’d personally rather see a Sundae Bar than an Ice Cream Truck.  But that is probably just me (and oh ya, for the record, Mr TTR & I are both HUGE Food & Wine Lovers… but I still see a Food Truck at a Wedding as being problematic because of the reasons I’ve given earlier, and the fact that the OP has now revealed further location details)

@mrs-to-be-2014:  Just a suggestion, but you can actually get Cold Stone Creamery or Marble Slab (the Cdn equivalent to Cold Stone) to come in to your reception and serve ice cream in the evening. I can’t remember how much it costs, but there’s a price per person. It could be a compromise so your guests don’t have to leave…

ETA: Here it is, it’s Marble Slab: http://marbleslab.ca/index.php/creamery/catering

@julies1949:  OMG, Tiny Tom donuts…. lady, you’ve got me drooling over here!

OP, I don’t think you could go wrong with Tims or ice cream, so go with whatever you want or whatever is more feasible! Great idea to finish off the night with something fun 🙂
