    I think it would be really fun! Would they be willing to make half portions or something smaller so that guests can “sample” from a few trucks? I would *love* to have options like that, and it’s very unique. Icecream truck follow up sounds fantastic 🙂  

    …now I want a Philly.

    I think this sounds totally creative and will make your wedding stand out. Plus with a food truck, you can have different options that cater to different tastes and it would be so much more interesting than typical “wedding food.” I live in a city where food trucks rule the lunch hour and attending a wedding with them would be awesome!

    It’s a bit too trendy for my tastes. It seems like everyone’s doing food trucks these days. I’d opt for something more traditional and express myself through the actual cuisine. If you want people to mingle instead of being confined to a dining table, you can do a ton of fun things with serving stations, still get your ethnic flare and “street food” funkiness but not introduce that “flavor of the month” angle to things. Plus if you were to do food trucks, you’d really limit yourself to only an extremely casual gathering; I’d not want to be even a step up from business casual and have to eat from a truck window.

    Love love love it!!!  Fiance and I were just discussing the other day how cool it would be to do that at our wedding.  Food truck food is the best.  I say go for it!

    I think this is a great idea, but I am obsessed with food trucks. 🙂 I would have fun at this kind of wedding and enjoy not being confined to a table with the same meat/starch/vegetable on a plate setup. We are getting a food truck for our welcome dinner and if Fiance would have let me, I would have done the same for the wedding. It might be trendy right now to a certain extent, but I think it’s trending for a reason. It’s a fun, lower cost option that I think many guests will enjoy.

    I think it sounds like a ton of fun, but also a ton of money.

    It’s cute but I would worry about lines. Maybe add statrions to space the food out?

    Fiance and I were thinking about food trucks, since we want all sorts of different food at our wedding.

    I’m with @fishbone — it seems a bit too trendy.  But that’s probably because food trucks are everywhere in my city, to the point that it’s overdone. If they are more of a novelty where you live, people might think it’s awesome.

    With wedding trends, most of the time, only brides and grooms in the thick of planning (or people who read wedding blogs) know what the trends are. From what I can tell, the food truck trend is more of a California based thing, so in Pittsburgh, it might be a really fun new thing that most of your guests have never experienced (and maybe never even heard about!) I say, if you like it, go for it.

    I love the idea of food trucks, that’ll mean that everyone has a choice and it’s something a bit different. I’ve never been to a wedding where this has been done. Sounds like a fantastic idea.

    It sounds fun but where would guests eat?  Are you wanting people to get their food from a truck and eat outside?  I wouldn’t want to do this in fancy clothes.

    Or are you wanting the food truck people to cater your indoor reception?  If this, I don’t see how this is any different than a normal catering company, since the street truck would be taken out of the equation.
