Oh, how we love weddings that ditch traditional sit down dinners! Instead, why not opt for a stack of food trucks and vans?
Opting for casual wedding catering is a fun way to ensure your guests are fed and ready to party the night away.
Here at HOORAY!, we love the idea of tasty treats that we can roam around the dance floor with… that’s why we’ve put together the ultimate list of food trucks to cater for your wedding.
When it comes to great food trucks, we’re talking cocktail bars on wheels, portable taco stands and old-school ice cream vans… just to name a few!
