Deliciously Fun Ice Cream Wedding Details

Blog Post

Ahhh, is there anything more refreshing on a hot summer day than a scoop of ice cream? Find out how to incorporate this sweet treat into your wedding details!

Wedding Cake Alternative

Don’t want to serve a traditional wedding cake? Consider having a multi-flavored ice cream tower, instead! Cold Stone, Ben & Jerry’s and Carvel all offer options that will satisfy any couple’s sweet tooth. Mini ice cream cone-inspired cake pops (like the ones pictured below from Jenny Cookies) are also a crowd pleaser.

Ice Cream Bar 

An ice cream bar is the ultimate dessert idea for a warm-weather wedding. Recreate an old-fashioned ice cream parlor in the middle of your reception and include a fun assortment of sweet and savory toppings. From sprinkles to hot fudge and candy to whipped cream, guests will love coming up with their own concoctions.
