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.

@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.
