From Miss Adventure:
Planning the food has been challenging. My family pictured a sit down dinner and I pictured people eating tacos on paper plates from a taco truck. Mr. Adventure and I both come from families with strong opinions about food, and we both are pretty handy in the kitchen. Serving a standard wedding menu didn’t seem to fit with the rest of the wedding we had planned, and my family wasn’t totally sold on my kitschy taco truck.
Not one to back down from an idea, I started researching other “food truck” like options. I was inspired by weddings that happened in other cities with a stronger food truck culture, whose options ranged from gourmet gastro-pub type fare, to In and Out Burger.
We were super happy when I stumbled upon Bomb Digs, a newer food truck that just started serving in Omaha this winter. The graffit-style painted tour bus will be a fun backdrop at our wedding. Plus, the food is awesome — gourmet without feeling stuffy — perfect for a barn wedding and picnic dinner. The best part is the fact that it serves as a kitchen on wheels, ensuring the food will be hot and fresh. Overall the cost per person will be on par with any of the other local caterers we considered.
Our day is going to be about enjoying the beautiful setting of the farm, playing lawn games, and throwing back a few beers with friends. The food truck option will allow people to choose when they sit down and grab a bite, and not hold people to a tight reception schedule of cocktails—dinner—dancing.
While my family is still a little nervous about stepping outside of the box a bit, I know after the first bite of stuffed pork tenderloin or chicken flautas, all will be at ease.
