So even though we’re getting married on NYE in the heart of the midwestern winter, FI and I LOVEEEEE ice cream and it is very “us”. So with that said, we’re thinking about doing a sundae bar!
Has anyone done this? Tips, tricks or ideas?
So far I’m thinking of a soft serve machine since it’s easier to deal with instead of having scoop ice cream to keep cold. I’m not sure the costs on that though.
Any help would be appreciated 🙂

We did! And everyone loved it!
After we cut the cake someone ran back and grabbed the ice cream (2 big buckets for about 100 people) from the freezer. People scooped their own, and we had homemade chocolate, caramel and berry sauces to go on it. I only got about a bite of it before dancing, but the chocolate sauce was amazing (definitely look into getting some really good stuff or having someone make it, sooo much better!)
I think it was put back in the freezer once the dancing started, but if the reception had gone later we would’ve brought it back out for people to enjoy again.
Afterwards a lot of people told me that they just went for the ice cream, not the cake. It was definitely very popular.

Oh ya our wedding wasn’t super fancy and everything was buffet style, so guests just scooped their own ice cream.

@laurel946: I have heard some soft serve machines can taste funky so I would recommend tasting the companys ice cream beforehand if you can.

@Tigerlilybride: Ooo nice! Yeah our dinner will be buffet style so I’m sure the guests can scoop their own! How big of tubs did you get?? Did you just buy different toppings besides the chocolate, ect?
@excitedtobeMRSF: Good to know!!! I did not think about that. I don’t want funky ice cream!

@laurel946: I don’t know the actual size… plus if I did it would be in litres and you probably know gallons. They were just the really big ones, the size that most ice cream stores have to scoop out of. I have no idea how much was used.
I don’t think we had any other toppings. I might be wrong though, I honestly don’t remember much from dinner.
