Are you lovely couples enjoying your summer? Almost the summer is coming to an end. My Bridal Budget had the opportunity to coordinate a fun and unique wedding at the Queens County Farm located in Little Neck, NY.
Instead, of a formal catered dinner at a reception, the laid back couple hired Food Trucks for their wedding reception. Yes! Food Trucks! The Food Trucks you see in the NYC streets, such as dessert and ethnic food trucks. Food Trucks have been a popular trend in NYC for several years, and now have entered into the wedding industry.
Korilla BBQ served Kimchee Chicken, Pork and Beef Tacos, FritesNMeats served Burgers and Veggie Burgers with French Fries, and for dessert-Andy Italian Ices served all flavored Italian Ices and Iced Coffee, including unique flavors such as Canolli ices, and lastly decadent Red Velvet Cupcakes from Brooklyn Cupcakes.
The guests had a blast and it felt like a BBQ but with a creative twists. Guests placed their orders at the trucks and picked up their dinners in a white “doggie bag”. Indeed, it was an informal affair and unforgettable way to celebrate the big day!
To plan your wedding with Food Trucks in a fun location -

We all know about the Garter Toss/Garter Placement traditional game – right? After the Groom tosses the garter to the single men, a man catches the garter to place the garter on the Bouquet Winner’s thigh or leg- which is a single woman.
How about twisting this old tradition into a fun joke?
Blindfold the Garter Toss Winner, and have the Groom sit on the chair. The Groom will raise his pants up to his knee; take off his shoe and sock- so he mislead the winner that it is a woman. Spin the Blindfolded Garter toss winner in circles, and then lead him to the Groom. The Garter toss winner will get excited due to the mystery of who is this “woman”, as he puts the garter on the Groom’s leg- take off his blindfold- SURPRISE! He will see that it’s the Groom! It’s a funny joke that family and friends will always cherish this humorous moment!
