WOW that looks amazing!! Great idea – I’d be inclined to see if you can get a soft serve machine, will be much easier than guests scooping it and messing the beautiful labels and general prettyness!

My sister had one at her wedding – it was their splurge.  They had the ice cream set out in bowls by the staff ahead of time – so no scooping in front of the guests.  They also had a tub of “jack and jill” novelties like drumsticks, ice cream sandwiches, etc.

I love ice cream just as much as the next person, and at my wedding its actually included as part of the dessert hour (with fresh waffles!!) but I don’t know that I’d splurge for an extra if it wasn’t included.

Um.. YUM.

I’m pretty sure the way to do it is to have an attendant from the caterer with the bar. I know someone who worked in a hotel for years and this was one of the things they did for weddings, sounds like it usually worked that way.

@litljen84:

We are doing this. Ice cream comes with the wedding cake at our venue. I had to pay a little to have an attendant stand there to prevent the ice cream from melting, but I get to bring whatever toppings I would like. I’m doing this rather than favors. We’re just doing vanilla ice cream, but I think everyone will find a way to dress it up to make it their favorite.

I had a make your own sundae/ ice cream float at my wedding and it was a hit!  We had choice of chocolate or vanilla and an attendant who scooped the ice cream.  they had the ice cream in chiller tubs of some sort.  There were then a dozen different toppings that you could put on.  We also had chocolate chip cookies and brownies.  It was a lot of fun and a great way to end a hot summer day.

Our venue charged an additonal $3 per person for the sundae bar. They had every topping you could think of…M&M’s, reeces, sweedish fish etc.

They had two large tubs of ice cream (vanilla and chocolate) and our guests scooped it them selves…..Worked out fine!!! People could take as much or as little as they wanted. We were married in July, so it was hott out and this was just a perfect end to a night.

We are still receiving rave reviews of envy!!!

I wish we could have an ice cream bar!!  I would be all over that.  LOL!  I would do it if we could.  You’d just have to make sure the ice cream stayed cold.

People were scooping it out and eating it so fast, there was no time for it to melt, even in 78 degree weather. 

I think they went through 4 big tubs.

I too though melting would be an issue, but it wasn’t.
