We were going to do one because, like you, I really really wanted one, but we were advised against it because the icecream would probably melt. If your venue/caterer is able to set it up for you without having the icecream melt, I think you should do it.

We are doing one.  My FI’s uncle actually owns a soft serve ice cream machine that he’s lending us!

If I had the money I would soooo have and ice-cream bar.  Cold stone caters and instead of cake I would love ice cream!  But reality is, that it is not possible.  Please post pics if you have one.

A friend had a local creamery at her wedding (sort of like Cold Stone) making personalized ice cream sundaes. They were amazing! It was very memorable, too.

I love the idea, but I need to work with the caterer to see if we can do both the cake and something fun like an ice cream bar. Our dinner is pretty late, so I wonder if people won’t want to linger over dessert and just want to party instead.

Our venue won’t allow icecream, it could melt. I would REALLY love an icecream bar….. Dairy Queen has been an integral part of our wedding!

We did one! When it opened, people literally ran to get in line. They loved it! We had our wedding at a restaurant, so they staffed the sundae bar, scooped the ice cream and kept it looking tidy.

I was wondering about this too! I spoke with my caterer the other day and decided to do it! I think its something that will make your wedding fun and memorable.

Why are they opposed? We really want to have ice cream at our wedding, and will probably do sundaes for the groom’s cake! 🙂

Does your venue not have a freezer? We will store the ice cream there until it’s ready. Also, FI’s parents are caterers and the cafeteria they work at has an ice cream station. We’ll probably just haul that to our venue and have people scoop there and then add toppings somewhere else. I would tell you to do the same thing, however it’s probably expensive to rent an ice cream station like that.

We had one at our wedding. It didn’t cost us extra, we just go it instead of mini pastries. It was awesome, everyone loved it!  We did have a cake, but we gave it to guests in little to-go bags.
