Word on the street

Word on the street

Q. There's such a huge trend for street food at weddings that my fiancé and I are keen to jump on board! How do we know which is the best to choose?

A. Carl ODwyer says: Carl says: Street food is trending more than ever of late and getting very popular for weddings, especially for evening time. Key things to look out for are to check a business via their social media profiles, to see how popular they are – and how much they engage with their social following. Check out their reviews on Facebook, Google and Trip Advisor, and if possible contact a couple of wedding reviewers for feedback on their service and value. You can also choose to visit them at events or their usual trading place to get a feel for their customer service – and of course try their food before you commit. It's best to get several quotes from different vendors, too, to help you ensure you make the right choice for your big day.
