Picking out your wedding day meals can be tricky, let alone during a worldwide pandemic. But what better way to hold a smaller-scale, socially-distanced wedding than to have your vendor come to you? Whether you want the entire meal catered by a food truck or you’re just looking to enhance the meals you already have set in place with a specialized vendor, these options will let you show off your own personality and offer a unique experience that guests will never forget. Here are the contenders.
For the couples who are young at heart: Instead of having a custom cocktail at your wedding reception, why not have a custom grilled cheese? Treat yourself to one of their specialty sandwiches like “the Hill”, featuring tomatoes, pesto and provolone.
This food truck has made it their mission to deliver a delicious burger made with organic, local ingredients. The Vulcan burger, which is smothered with caramelized onions, applewood-smoked bacon and spicy rocket sauce, is a must-have for meat-lovers. For vegetarians looking for an out-of-this-world veggie burger, the sweet potato and black bean burger is your go-to.
Plouf Plouf may be a food truck, but it’s one of the most gourmet food trucks around. Serving fine French cuisine free of antibiotics, hormones and high fructose corn syrup, you can guarantee your guests will leave happy. Try the truffle mac and cheese, duck burger or grilled salmon. Bon appetit!
Your guests will be on cloud nine with a visit from Le Petit Pouf, the most elegant cotton candy cart you’ll ever see. Their grand package is perfect for weddings up to 200 people, allowing guests to choose between flavors. This cart will be sure to make your big day sweet!
If you’re passionate about animal rights and ice cream, Like No Udder is a necessity at your wedding. With delicious soft-serve ice cream made without any animal byproducts, you can enjoy these treats completely guilt free. Start with a cup of vanilla or chocolate soft-serve and make it your own by adding peanut butter or sprinkle toppings. If you’re feeling like a true Rhode Islander, top off your ice cream with coffee syrup!
Tricycle Ice Cream cart is the perfect wedding treat for a sweet tooth! From mimosa sorbet push pops to red velvet cake batter ice cream sandwiches, Tricycle Ice Cream will have options for guests of all ages.
Established in 2019, this ice cream cart attached to a bicycle will be sure to cool everyone down at your summer reception. With flavors such as Fruity Pebbles, Cocoa Pudds and Golden Grahams give your guests a blast to the past on your big day.
The Cupcakory offers more than just cupcakes to put a smile on your wedding guests’ faces! From fried dough to cookies and cheesecakes, the Cupcakory even offers gluten-free and vegan options. With flavors such as chocolate banana, strawberry shortcake and many more, the Cupcakory is sure to be a perfect fit for your wedding reception.
A refreshing cup of frozen lemonade is just what you need at the reception of your summer wedding. As Rhode Islanders, we’ve been taught to always stop at the sign of the lemon so it makes perfect sense to include a Del’s truck on your special day. Serve the traditional lemon flavor or mix it up with flavors like cherry, blueberry or watermelon.
An open bar on the go, what’s better than that? Beer and Bubbles Truck is sure to be a crowd-pleaser on your wedding day. The truck comes fully-stocked with four different beer, wine, or prosecco options of your choice, allowing guests to help themselves throughout the day.
