Choosing to have a Wedding Truck for your reception is fun, cool and should save you money on a formal sit down wedding menu. In most cases you could save up to $40 per head with the average food cost of a wedding food truck being as low as $10 to $30 per head.
These top tips will help to make sure everything goes smoothly.
1. Choose your Food Truck to what you know your guests will like.
