    No. Cheesesteaks and cheese fries are not a suitable replacement for a favor. : (33 votes)

    Sure This is a very cute idea. A snack after all the dancing.

    I think it’s an awesome idea and I would love it, much more than an object with the couples name and date all over it (sorry I hate typical wedding favors as well)

    I think that’s a fabulous idea! Not only have favors gone the way of optional, because let’s face it nobody wants your cheesy sh*t, but it seems like edible favors really are the most welcomed these days! I think a special treat like a food truck is an excellent and fun thing to do!

    What time is the reception meal?  What time would the cheesesteaks be ready for people?

     

    Honestly…it does sound good in theory, but I know for myself, I cannot eat anything that heavy that late in the day.  I think if you went ahead with this, you better be prepared for the realization that many of your guests won’t take a cheesesteak home with them.

     

    I don’t know…maybe they would if it could be wrapped up in foil so they could take it home and eat it the next day.  I guess that would be my vote.  I WOULD take one if I could transport it home to eat for lunch the next day.

     

    **I know I’ve never left a wedding hungry.  Philly people are quite the conisseurs of cheesesteak, so I hope you go with a good one that will appeal to everyone!  Which I know you will, of course!

    I agree that I’m not sure I would call this a favor, but I also don’t think favors are necessary:  I have received ONE in-edible favor that I actually liked and kept.

    That being said, I would be all over your food truck.  I love it when people have end-of-party food at weddings…after all of the dancing and drinking, it’s awesome to have a little food in your belly!

    Maybe if it was optional (like, they would go up to the food truck and get it, rather than handing them out to the guests) because I wouldn’t eat it, I’d feel bad to throw it away, and then I’d have to smell sandwich the whole way home in the car. But it’s definately a better idea than a useless trinket.

    I would love cheesesteaks and cheese fries as a late night snack in lieu of a favor! But, I lived in Philly for 5 years, so it would bring back great memories!

    The thought is there, and I think that’s an awesome gesture, but I don’t think people would see it as a “favor. Favors are known as stupid trinkets that people throw away. Obviously I’m not a fan of favors, but I like your idea! People who expect favors will probably not see this as an alternative.

    The people who said “no” are not from Philly and do not understand the awesomeness that are Chickie’s and Pete’s crab fries. 😉

    i think forget the favours, this is a much better plan. though if anyone asks about favours tell them you thought it would be nicer for people to get some post drinking food for the road.

    I don’t know if people will see it as a “favor” but it’s an awesome idea and I would do it in lieu of more typical favors!
