Food Truck Wedding - Would Like Advice (moved from L.A. board)

KNHaw | May 18, 2011 11:59 PM

My fiancée and I are getting married in October and she would like to have the wedding at least partially catered by one or more food trucks (we may do appetizers ourselves to keep our guests from starving while we do the photos between the ceremony and the reception). We're looking at 100-120 people and having it in the Long Beach or OC areas (our respective stomping grounds). I'm already checking out trucks but am coming here hoping that perhaps you guys have actually attended some food truck weddings and might be able to help out with three things:

1) What venues can you suggest? We need a place that allows outside food and has parking and/or room for the trucks. We have other requirements, too: Outdoor ceremony, indoor reception, liquor friendly.

2) At weddings you attended, how were the logistics handled? Did the guest go outside and stand in line at the trucks or did they bring the food inside (the latter isn't much different than a caterer)?

3) Did the trucks cater the whole thing or was it just a midnight snack as I've seen some mention?

Also, any food truck recommendations would be great as well.
