That is a lot of food!!! I feel like the ice cream cart before dinner and hour d’evours might be overkill?

I think you certainly don’t NEED midnight snacks with all of that food… but if you want them then go ahead. ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t think a late night snack is necessary at all. And i agre–go with just the appetizers. Ice cream at 515pm….not so much–that’s definitely food time. You could offer an ice cream dessert bar, though! I like that more.

Could you move the ice cream to later in the evening? Like a sundae bar or something? That would be a nice sweet treat to end the night.

Considering that you are starting dinner at 7pm, you don’t really need a midnight snack. Especially since you are having a cocktail hour preceding. You can certainly have them if you want them since people do work up an appetite by dancing. But I don’t think you need the ice cream at 5pm which is the dinner hour. You will kill appetites by serving it at that time and if you serve dessert before dinner, the dessert served after dinner may go to waste because people are way too stuffed at that point.

What about making the ice cream cart your late night snack? Or are you trying to offer your guests something in between the church and the cocktail hour?

YUMMY!if you really are wanting something to cool everyone off you should have like flavored ice or something. it is lighter and that way everyone will still have room for the yummy dinner and cake! ๐Ÿ™‚ since you already have them booked maybe you could request lite ice cream optinos only. no chocolate double brownie anything. maybe just vanilla and they might have flavored shaved ice or whatever. I would call them and ask.

Love the idea of something cold after a hot outside july ceremony! SO COOL

I LOVE the idea of an ice cream cart.  I’m actually a little jealous!

Well I’m a late night snacker (which may account for the extra weight.. haha), so I’d love a late night snack. But if you’re not having a sit down meal, just a buffet I don’t see why guests that wanted something more couldn’t go back and get it. Personally I think you’re treating them great. I love the idea of the ice cream cart, but I think that the cart, cocktail, hour d’evours is a lot going on before dinner. You don’t want them to get stuffed on hour d’evours before they get to dinner. Then you’ll have wasted all that money on their dinner because everyone will be so stuffed from the hour d’evours, ice cream, and cocktails.
