When you’re planning your wedding menu, it’s easy to fall into the standard “chicken or fish” trap. But, have you ever thought of serving something a bit more unique? What about something totally off the beaten path, like tacos?
Now, before you laugh, hear us out.
There are lots of reasons to consider having a wedding taco cart. Eight of the best ones are listed below.
1. Great Taste
Who doesn’t love a good taco?
The combination of savory meat and cheese paired with spicy, tangy salsa, and creamy guacamole, all wrapped up in a soft tortilla. Is your mouth watering just thinking about it?
Tacos are almost universally loved. If you want your wedding guests to be happy and well-fed, a taco cart will definitely do the job.
2. Easy to Serve
Nobody likes sitting around at their table waiting for their food to arrive. It can also be quite expensive to hire servers to deliver food to your guests.
A taco cart is much more cost-effective, and, with a buffet-style setup, it’s easy for your guests to serve themselves. They can also go back for seconds (or thirds) whenever they’re ready.
3. Give Your Guests More Time to Party
Do you want your wedding reception to include lots of dancing? If so, you definitely ought to consider a taco cart.
Because tacos are so easy to serve, your guests don’t have to waste precious dancing time waiting in line or waiting for a waiter to bring them their dinner.
They can grab their food and get on the dance floor sooner.
4. Lots of Options
There’s virtually an unlimited number of combinations people can put together at a taco cart.
Why only let your guests choose between chicken and fish when they can choose between beef, chicken, vegetables, corn tortillas, flour tortillas, and different types of salsa?
Everyone has different preferences, and a taco cart lets you cater to all of them.
5. Easy to Customize
It’s also easy for your guests to customize their tacos to their liking.
Don’t want to look around and see people picking vegetables off their plates or swapping side dishes with their neighbor?
Set up a taco cart so everyone can get exactly what they want.
6. Pair with Fun Beverages
Tequila, margaritas, beer, fun cocktails, flavored lemonades for the non-drinkers — the beverage options are endless when you go with a taco cart.
Why limit yourself to stuffy, traditional cocktails and boring, bottom-shelf bottles of wine? Give people the beverages they actually want to drink.
7. Easy to Accommodate Different Dietary Needs
Do you have guests who are vegan? Gluten-free? Paleo? Tacos are the perfect option to fit just about every dietary preference.
For guests who need a vegan protein source, offer black beans or pinto beans. For gluten-free guests, offer corn tortillas. For paleo guests, provide a taco salad option.
A taco cart makes it incredibly easy to accommodate everyone’s needs and preferences.
8. Give Your Wedding a Laid-Back Vibe
A taco cart also gives your wedding a fun, laid-back vibe and sends a message that you want your guests to have a good time.
If you serve tacos at your reception, people will be more inclined to laugh, sing, and dance while celebrating the love between you and your partner.
Setting Up the Perfect Wedding Taco Cart
With all these great benefits in mind, are you feeling eager to set up a great taco cart for your wedding?
When you hire a catering company to prepare the food for your taco cart, they take care of all the hard parts for you. But, it’s still important to think about how you want to customize your taco cart.
Be sure to keep these factors in mind when you’re planning your ideal wedding taco cart:
Pick Your Proteins
Some of the most popular protein options for a taco cart include:
Most people offer two or three protein options when they’re putting together their taco cart.
For vegans and vegetarians, you can also offer black beans or pinto beans so they can make their tacos a bit more substantial while sticking to their dietary preferences.
Pick Your Tortillas
Corn tortillas and flour tortillas are the two most popular options for taco carts.
You might also want to offer a tortilla-free option for people who like to avoid grains or who stick to a low-carb diet.
Giving people the choice to make a taco salad with romaine lettuce ensures that everyone has something to enjoy at your wedding.
Pick Your Toppings
This is where it gets really fun. There’s almost a limitless number of taco toppings you can choose for your wedding guests.
Some options that are sure to be crowd-pleasures include:
Don’t forget to offer a few different salsa options. Most people stick with a mild, medium, and a hot option.
Choose Your Sides
Good sides for a wedding taco cart include tortilla chips, rice, and beans. You don’t need to get too fancy with sides, especially since there are going to be so many fun toppings available.
Consider a Fun Dessert
Of course, the wedding cake is the traditional dessert option. But, if you’re going with a taco cart at your wedding reception, you’re probably not too concerned with tradition.
Why not serve something fun and unique, like churros or flan? There are lots of great desserts that will pair well with your taco cart and be something your guests talk about for years.
