allow me to explain.
how I convinced the husband elect
above all i wanted to have a wedding that was very 'us' which meant keeping things casual and quirky.
casual? you see victor strongly dislikes formal functions. first because he really dislikes dressing up and second he hates feeling like he is being rude by not following ettiequte unknown to him. so I convinced him having food trucks over a seated formal meal would be more in line with vibe we wanted.
quirky? at several points i straight up said to victor "we've been to 14 weddings together. describe the food we had at each of them?" now to be fair he was able to describe a few, but for the most part classic wedding fare isn't that unique and we thought food trucks would be memorable.
how we pulled it off
well we went heavy on the appetizers (more on that later), and then we had three separate options for dinner.
first there was nora's spanish catering, who served vegetarian and regular paella.
in addition to being delicious this was a smart move because the paella, being ready to serve, was a was a quick moving line.
then we had sam's chowder mobile, who provided fish tacos, blue crab sandwiches, po' boys, and lobster rolls.
finally we had the chairman provide baos and steamed bun sandwiches.
the end result
we could not have been happier with how the food trucks turned out. we feel that like the beer and wine, doing it this way allowed us to serve nicer food (lobster! duck!) for about the same price as a standard seated formal meal.
plus no one really minded mingling while the food was prepared, and if they did they were smart enough not to tell the bride or groom.
thank you victor for letting me have my quirky wedding food!
