    What about the drippy factor?

    that would be my only concern.

    I’ve seen brides serve ice cream & etc, so I think freeze pops are in the same category. I guess it’s all about presentation?

     

    I want a freeze pop now. It’s hot!

    The tube kind?  No!  I would love that.  Freeze pops are cheap and yummy.  The only problem I see is the sissors needed to cut them open.

    I have a friend who went to a summer wedding that had sno cones during what would have been the cocktail hour and it was a HUGE HIT. She said it’s one of the most memorable things EVER!!

    I like the freeze pop idea and the frozen fruit idea. You could do diff kinds of berrys n stuff too!

    I love the idea, I’d be so happy to have freeze pops at a wedding!  It’s a unique idea and it’s practical, I say go for it!

    Do freeze pops dye your tongue and teeth? That’d be pretty gross in pictures.  You could easily test that though which would be fun and delicious.

    I was just going to suggest a snow cone maker but KansasPrincess beat me to it. You can find decent ones for about $30 and the syrup is pretty cheap but you can use koolaid or fruit juices too. I used to have so much fun with my friends making snow cones during sleep overs.

    I’d suggest any type of fruit would be a great option – but that does get more expensive.

    I also like the grape idea a little better, due to the stained teeth factor. (All of my labor and delivery pictures have me with a black mouth because all they would let me have was grape popsicles lol-NOT the best look!)

    Also, have you considered diabetics and those on strict diets? If you do use popsicles having sugar-free options would be thoughtful. Nice idea though! 🙂

    I like your frozen treat idea, but I don’t know about freeze pops. I’d definitely be concerned about everyone’s mouths turning various colors, dripping on clothes, sticky hands, etc. And while you don’t want to interfere with dinner too much, something for people to nibble on while they’re waiting for you to finish your pictures might be nice. How about some cold lemonade and ice tea and maybe your frozen grape idea?

    How about lemon italian ice?? I’m pretty sure they don’t stain cause for the most part they’re white/clear. I just bought some the other day from the dollar store so I’m pretty sure they’re equally cheap. And so so so so good.

    Similarly, frozen lemonade?

    I’m doing italian ice before the ceremony. They’re on sale at Giant right now, a box of 6 for $2.
