We’re doing cupcakes in lieu of a wedding cake at our wedding, and my fiance LOVES ice cream so would really love to have a soft serve ice cream machine there. So, I looked atMr. Margarita (SoCal company) and they’re decently priced, except that for more than 100 guests they strongly advise renting 2 machines instead of just 1. So, that pushes us over the budget that I’m trying to keep to. Anyone know of any other companies I could look into that are reasonable and reliable? Or, instead of machines perse, maybe just an alternative? I even thought about buying the huge gallon buckets of ice cream at Costco and setting up a serve yourself type of a thing….. Open to ideas please!

I don’t have a clue, but I wish there was a “like” button for your idea 🙂 Good luck!
ETA: I lied! What about renting an ice cream truck to stop by???

I have no suggestions for you as far as other companies go since you would need someone in CA and I’m from NY but I just wanted to say that I freakin LOVE this idea!
As for the alternatives, I dont love the idea of the buckets of ice cream simply because I’m obsessed with aesthetics and I’m not sure how it would look but maybe if the ice cream was scooped by the venue staff in the kitchen and set up on a table with tons of topping choices, that could work.
I second @Bakerella’s idea for the ice cream truck. In our area we can hire the ice cream truck to stop by our venue and all it costs is the price of the ice cream, which is like $2-$3 a piece. If we were having a summer wedding, we would have done this in a heartbeat.
