    I vote for serving it after the wedding, with the cupcakes. I like your idea of clear plastic cups, and having people serve themselves. If you’re having a *lot* of people, though, the self-serve thing might get kind of hairy.

    I’d say it fits well during the cocktail hour, the flavor sounds like it would compliment well!

    Are you doing passed apps for the cocktail hour? Or stations? Or buffet style? I think passed sorbet cups could be really nice. Are you providing your own dishes or could your catering company provide something?

    Also, I’m curious if you’re really serving cupcakes as dinner, or if that was a typo in your first post ๐Ÿ™‚

    What do the free cups look like? Google image please! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Will the caterers be willing to scoop it into cups your provide, or will they charge extra since it’s not their food? If they’ll scoop, it seems least messy to have it pre-scooped, but it doesn’t seem worth it to pay a lot for that, since you kind of like the idea of DIY for your guests. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow you guys have Rita’s down there!?  I love the idea of having it at the cocktail hour!  But not everyone will love cranberry so maybe have an additional choice.  I see your date is in May…maybe a more “springy” fruit flavor or a cream ice?

    I kind of like them – would they fit your theme/atmosphere?

    I don’t love the idea of self-serve.  Whenever I scoop icecream or sorbet my hands get all sticky.

    But since your other hors d’oeuvres are stationery, I think you can get away with it.  But if you can afford it, I think having it served would be better.

    The cups are definitely “modern vintage” so I would guess they’d look okay with your decor. ๐Ÿ™‚
