I went to a wedding last summer that had Coldstone come during dessert time. Guests could pick from a handful of ice cream flavors and then a bunch of toppings. It was a huge hit! I would suggest calling ice cream places around you.

You cool them by keeping them in the freezer. Only put out one or two at a time so they don’t set out and melt. We self-catered out ice cream sundae bar in TN… in June. It was very simple.

What’s your venue like and how many people are going to be there?  Do you have someone who can man the sundae bar?

If I were you, I’d call around to local ice cream places and get quotes if you want it professionally done, and then call your top venue choices and ask if they could provide a sundae bar and say that it is a must-have for you and your FI; if you have local ice cream shop prices for catering, you’ll be able to know whether a venue can offer a better price or find out whether they would allow the local ice cream places to provide the service.  Be firm about needing a sundae bar if it’s a must-have!

@Jmayinc:  No, actually the food cost was less than 100 dollars, and the bowls, utensils, etc were about the same. We did it for 60ish people.
