Wedding concepts are changing everyday. We no longer feel pressure to get married in a big church by a priest or minister followed by a big seated reception with a white cake and champagne. People now get married on the beach, a barn, a winery, a meadow, a backyard, a brewery… The list is endless and full of fun possibilities.
Formal Is Out, Food Trucks Are In!
So, why should you feel that same pressure to serve a formal, seated dinner with a three-course meal? Usually plated dinners are the most expensive ones when it comes to catering options, so if you’re on a budget, a great option is to opt for a food truck!
Food trucks are fun, more personal, and there are an array of options so you won’t feel limited in any way when choosing the right cuisine for your wedding!
If you plan on getting married in beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona you’re in luck! Not only are there luxurious and affordable wedding venues, but the sunny and warm weather make it perfect for an outdoor wedding… which means you have the ideal setup for a food truck for catering!
Now the question becomes, which food truck? To help you decide, we selected three outstanding food trucks in Scottsdale, AZ that are all completely different, but delicious all the same:
- Aioli Gourmet Burgers:
Wait a minute, burgers for a wedding? Yes! Especially if the burgers are ranked #1 in Arizona! With 10 different menu possibilities, choose between salads, sides, desserts, beverages and, of course, the famous gourmet burgers.

- Le Crepe
Let’s talk about everyone’s favorite part: dessert! If you have a sweet tooth like me, I am sure the amazing sweet crepes from Le Crepe would be an amazing addition to your wedding menu repertoire! Deliciously made from scratch, with five different flavors you will have a hard time choosing which one to indulge in!
For catering they offer two different packages: the small package costs $500 and serves up to 75 crepes for 2 hours, with an additional charge of $6 for every extra crepe. The large package is $1,200 and serves 200 crepes for 4 hours, charging an extra $5 per crepe after 200. Both services include up to 3 menu items of your choosing, plates and silverware and serves. They also have the choice of a delicious savory crepe ‘The Frenchman’ with turkey, avocado, tomato, provolone and pesto mayo, in case you just want the whole deal!
Take advantage of picturesque Scottsdale whether by hosting your wedding outside, among the mountains and make it casual, fun and creative for your outdoor reception in one of the many luxurious properties you can only find in this area. Food trucks are also perfect if you don’t have a lot of space for big tables, since they usually serve food people can easily eat with their hands, like some of the ones listed here, they are also very convenient for venues that don’t offer a kitchen space.
Doesn’t matter if you decide to go for a food truck because it fits your budget, because it logistically makes sense or because you simply love the concept (don’t we all?), if you decide from one of these three options listed here we promise there’s no way you can go wrong!
