Wedding Food Trucks Ireland

Food culture has come a long way in Ireland over the last number of years. Farmers markets, artisan producers and a real hunger (pardon the pun!) from the public for fresher, tastier and more creative food choices has raised the bar all around.
And this is very evident when it comes to weddings. More and more, it’s the food that’s one of the key driving elements when picking a venue for the big day. People want more than just ‘beef or salmon.’ They want something modern, fun creative and tasty. There’s also an appetite (sorry, not sorry!) for organic food with an eye on sustainability as well as food that can cater for different diets.

What’s great about the food trucks is that they can be a real surprise for your guests. You can have them as the main meal provider, or to cater for the drinks reception, the late night snack or the day after celebrations.

Here’s some visual inspiration for you. In the meantime don’t hesitate to get in touch with me directly if you wish to chat about any aspect of your wedding planning and décor.

 

Any drawbacks?
As far as cons go, the only drawbacks to consider for food trucks really are the cost. Make sure it fits with your budget and find out what your venues policy is on having these vans on their premises. Also while it might be tempting to get a hog roast van in for your main meal, bear in mind it might not suit all styles of weddings.

 

Main Meals
If you’re having a festival or glamping style wedding, or a more relaxed atmosphere, then a food truck catering for the main meal is perfect. And there are so many cuisines to choose from! Literally there are options from all over the world to consider.

Late Night Snacks
Having a food truck for your late night snack will be a real treat and surprise for your guests. In this case, look for vans that serve snack style foods, such as fries, poutine, bagels, pizza, fish n chips or even sliders. These would also be ideal for your day after get together.

Home Fries 

Drinks
From prosecco trucks, to gin caravans and even mobile traditional Irish pubs, there is a huge move toward these snazzy drinks vans in recent years. Ideal for your drinks reception or again for your day after get together if you’re having one.

Sweet Treats
Again, sweet treats are going to be super addition to your wedding day festivities and you could have these at the drinks reception or in the evening time. Think Ice cream vans, doughnuts, cotton candy, cakes, coffee, teas, cakepops and crepes.

Morning of The Wedding Surprises

The morning of your wedding day is really special. In many ways it’s the calm before the very exciting storm that is to come. It’s one of the only times on the day when you’ll have a moment to yourself. You’ll likely spend the rest of the morning with your close family and friends as you all prepare for the ceremony.

It’s also the last time you’ll be away from your partner as a ‘single’ person.

Those few hours are generally spent full of emotion, from laughs to tears to excitement and a little nerves. So it’s nice to surprise your other half with a little heartfelt gift or message to put a smile on their face.

There’s so many ways to do this and the only limit is your imagination. And don’t forget to enlist the help of the bridesmaids or best man too if needs be.

Here’s some visual inspiration for you. In the meantime don’t hesitate to get in touch with me directly if you wish to chat about any aspect of your wedding planning and décor.

 

Letter

There’s nothing wrong with a classic and these days how many of us have actually sat down and written our other half a love letter? Your wedding is the perfect time to do it and why not have a member of the bridal party deliver it, or hide in his or her luggage.

 

Send a Sneak Peek Text

Most couples don’t see each other for most of the day and night before the wedding and while some swap the odd text, you still won’t be seeing each other for a full 24 hours. So why not send a sneak peek text? Get your bridesmaids together with signs saying something like ‘Wait until you see her’, or get the groomsmen together with signs saying ‘He can’t wait to see you.’ So  while you’re not really giving anything away as such, it’s still guaranteed to bring a smile to their face

 

 

Boudoir Shoot

For something a little more unusual, why not arrange for a boudoir style photoshoot before the wedding and surprise your other half with a picture on the morning of the wedding. And this goes for the guys too not just the women!

 

Jewellery

Another classic, the presentation of a small piece of engraved or personalised jewellery like cufflinks or a necklace, is a very thoughtful surprise for the morning of the wedding.

 

Embroidered Hankie

This is a very sweet idea and you can go for a few lines that mean something very personal and special to your not as a coupe. If you’re stuck for words then a lot of craft website like Etsy or Notonthehighstreet will give you plenty of beautiful inspiration.

 

Customise Their Clothes

This is a great surprise if you can pull it off, but you’ll need someone on the inside to help! AKA a bridesmaid or groomsman. A secret note sewed into the grooms tie, or into the underside of the brides dress or something on the sole of a shoe will definitely elicit a smile.

Wedding Reception Drinks Ideas

Wedding receptions have come a long way from the traditional glass of bubbles on arrival. Of course, that’s not to say there is anything wrong with this however; you cannot beat a classic.  At the same time, there is now so much more scope for having something a little different for your wedding drinks reception.

Bubbles, prosecco, champagne are all wonderful luxuries and are perfect for the occasion, but if you want to put your own stamp on your wedding day and you have the budget, then why not consider creating something a little more unique. Something that reflects your personalities and tastes.

Think specially created his ‘n’ hers drinks, milk and cookies for the kids, winter warmers and summer coolers.

Here’s some visual inspiration for you. In the meantime don’t hesitate to get in touch with me directly if you wish to chat about any aspect of your wedding planning and décor.

 

 

Cocktails

The great thing about cocktails is that they are a bit special. The glasses, the colours and the names are often bursting with fun, which make them ideal for your wedding reception. Ideally it would be nice to offer guests a choice, but if you want to stick to your budget then why not choose a champagne style of cocktail that’s likely to appeal to everyone? If you want to do something a little more experimental then don’t be afraid to go for it, it’s your wedding day after all.

 

Bespoke

Why not create something totally unique to welcome your guests? A signature his ‘n’ hers drink (one of your favourite drinks) for example or cocktail is a wonderful idea as it will reflect your personality as a couple. If your venue has a mixologist, why not work with them to come up with a brand new drink that reflects both of you as a couple?

 

For the Kids

If you’ve got little people at your wedding day, then putting in a little effort to make them feel included really is worth it. A tray of snazzy milk and cookies for example, with cool straws and retro bottles will really make their day complete… and let’s just say one or two adults might love it too!

 

Non-Alcoholic Options

Not everyone is going to want an alcoholic drink at the wedding reception for a variety of reasons; people want to pace themselves, there will be designated drivers and non-drinkers. So don’t forget to cater for them. They can often feel a little forgotten at occasions like this, so why not come up with something that isn’t just your standard mineral. Homemade lemonade stations are a fantastic idea and then let the guests help themselves. Kids love these too by the way.

 

Warmer Uppers

If you’re having a winter wedding, then something warm is very welcome. Hot chocolate is a great choice and you can leave out an array of additions like marshmallows and cream for guest to adorn them with. But also consider drinks such as spiced apple cider or mulled wine or why not have a bespoke tea station with a variety of herbal teas for guests to try?
