Long gone are the days where the hottest trend at a wedding was a sit down 5 course dinner! Now it’s all fun, frivolity and total and utter yumminess. More and more couples are taking the plunge and choosing a modern foodie trend to feed their wedding guests – whether it be a food truck, an ice-cream parlour or a burger shack, the focus is on an interactive (and delicious) experience. Let’s take a look at the most popular food trends hitting the wedding scene this year.

First up is the good old food truck. And we’re not talking eewy, gross and greasy food – nope, the food trucks are now all about gourmet, high-class and trendy eats. Think mini gourmet burgers on sourdough buns, sliders with pulled pork, gourmet hot dogs with a range of fillings, hand cut fries with garlic aioli and fried chicken in waffle cones. Because the food is being made in the truck, you know it’s going to be fresh and hot for your guests – plus, it comes with the added benefit that your guests can go and grab a cheeky snack anytime they like!

Make it easy for your guests by supplying them with disposable cutlery and mini salt and pepper sachets. Coordinate with your wedding decor for an ultra-chic feel.

We are absolutely loving the idea of setting up your very own ice-cream parlour or gelato stand, because let’s face it… who on earth doesn’t love ice-cream!? This is the perfect idea for an outdoor wedding.

For a fun alternative, hire a Mr Whippy van for the night – think about all of the childhood memories you’ll bring back for your guests!

One of the most popular foodie trends at the moment is the gourmet burger. Set up a burger shack at your wedding and let your guests create their own burger extravaganza! Have a range of gourmet buns, pulled meats, drool worthy salads and sauces on hand… and don’t forget the all important sides – thick cut fries, grilled corn and baked potato wedges.
