One of the biggest wedding trends today is hiring a food truck to serve guests at the after-ceremony reception. Experienced food truck operators can supply everything from food and beverages to chairs, tables, silverware, servers and bartenders. But if you are planning a wedding ceremony, you also need to consider the food that is consumed before the vows are exchanged. We’re referring to the munchies that the bridal party and family members consume as they gear up for the ceremony.
Preparing for a wedding is stressful. Family members and bridesmaids are dealing with last-minute decorating chores, clothing and makeup preparation. The groomsmen and friends are trying on their tuxes and trying to remember where they put the rings. Pre-wedding food is rarely at the top of the wedding-day to-do list; but nutritious food is important. It keeps everyone energized and in a good mood during the preparations.
Here are four suggestions for providing healthy, easy-to-manage meals to the wedding party:
- Ensure everyone starts out with a healthy breakfast. Serve quality breakfast foods – including some protein – to everyone.
- Hydration is important, so make beverages, especially water, available all day long. Avoid alcohol until the reception in order to feel your best during the ceremony.
- Steer clear of salty or fried foods, and avoid anything that could stain hands or discolor clothing, such as fruits or juices.
- Make munchies available all day long. Platters of vegetables, fruits and cheese are ideal. Meaty sandwiches and casseroles will help maintain healthy blood sugar levels.
Fortunately, pre-wedding food preparation does not need to be an extra chore to tackle on your big day. Take a tip from the movie producers and TV production companies that always have a gourmet food truck standing by to ensure that everyone on the team is well fed.
There are many advantages to having a food truck on the scene. A gourmet truck brings its own professional kitchen directly to you, has refrigeration equipment to ensure that you have plenty of ice and leaves your own kitchen clean and tidy.
