Looking for fun and interactive elements to add to your wedding day? Unique experiences that will give your guests something to interact with during a cocktail hour or while you're off taking photos, leaving them speechless and wowed? How about something totally Instagramable, worthy of all those wedding magazines or blogs you follow, while also supporting a local small business? Well my friend, look no further! I've gathered up 10 different types of food & beverage trucks local to Kansas City who would love to make an appearance on your big day!
1. Wild Way Coffee
What Is It and Why I love it - Kansas City's first coffee camper, using sustainably sourced coffee and tea, crafting drinks with local and organic ingredients. I love this setup for its uber-cute camper style, incredibly kind staff, seriously tasty drinks, and ability to customize drinks for your special day.

2. Betty Raes Ice Cream Truck
What Is It and Why I love it - "Our truck is an ice cream shop on wheels: we carry 15 flavors (the most popular from the shop plus a few vegan flavors) in cups or cones; sundaes with caramel and fudge and an assortment of toppings; and root beer floats. Gluten-free cones are on board, and ice cream sandwiches, cookies, brownies, waffle cones and anything else from our store menu is available for a small additional charge." Betty Raes is hands down my FAVORITE Kansas City ice cream (where my lavender honey ice cream fans at?!). With vegan and gluten-free options, there's something for all ice cream fans! I love this setup for its colorful truck, tons of flavor options, and overall deliciousness.

5. KC Prosecco Truck
What Is It and Why I love it - "The KC Prosecco truck is a refurbished Piaggio Ape, pronounced “Ah-Peh” (Italian for “bee”). Born in 1977, our Piaggio Ape was a tiny (and we mean tiny) work truck maneuvering around the tight, cobblestone streets of Milan, Italy. With a small truck bed, one seat, and just three-wheels, it hauled countless loads of olives for its original owner. Since making the journey from Italy to Miami to Kansas City, the Ape has had some work done. Now fully custom renovated and rebuilt, it’s equipped to cater and entertain as the KC Prosecco Truck." What I love about this setup is its chic white and gold aesthetic, small frame with the ability to fit at any venue, and overall fun alternative to traditional cocktail hour.

6. Bubble Tap KC
What Is It and Why I love it- "The Bubble Tap Trailer by Tap Trailer Co. is the first mobile bubbly bar in the U.S., owned and operated by two effervescent sisters who bring fizz and style to celebrations, events and festivals. Based in Los Angeles, the buzzy new concept has sparked a fast-growing national franchise business serving up prosecco and other bubbly offerings on tap from its signature mobile bar crafted from a fully renovated vintage camper." What I love about this setup is their crazy cute vintage camper styler, female-owned and operated with a mission to empower more female business owners, and overall fun and unique alternative to a traditional cocktail hour.

What Is It and Why I love it - "We’re a mobile bartending service dispensing goodness through the streets of the City of Fountains, and we can’t wait to pour you a drink. The Fizz loves to party! We’re a Prosecco truck, an adorable kegerator on wheels, a piece of Italy’s la dolce vita, and we’re available to book for whatever your heart desires. If you’re looking for something both totally adorable and booze-filled for your party, Fizzolino can do the job, whether it’s a wedding, birthday party, corporate event, or any private event, really." What I love about this setup is its drink versatility, husband and wife owned and operated, and endless photo opportunities!

Surprise your party guests with a party favor or dessert experience they'll be telling their friends about!"

What Is It and Why I love it - "We're proud to offer the best all-natural cotton candy event service in the country; and now, a second brand that offers specialty ice cream sandwiches with homemade cookies, hand-rolled in unique toppings!" What I love about this setup is its dessert variety, option to interact with drinks, size of their operation, and efforts to remain non-artificial! Their cotton candy is dye-free, dairy-free, nut-free, GMO-free, gluten-free, vegan, allergy-free, and some flavors are even certified Kosher!
