Im doing a sundae bar too, but I’m just buying the large tubs of ice cream and having it open for an hour to advoid a melted mess. a soft serve matchine would rock, but out of my budget.

That sounds amazing. Does your caterer or reception venue have any recommendations for local places?

Everyone that I’ve done, we’ve always used hard ice cream, and hired someone to scoop. 

However, have you thought about calling an ice cream truck? Lots of companies will stop in at a wedding for a reasonable price.

I’ve been considering a Sundae bar and saw the neatest tip for serving ice cream:  Freeze single scoops on trays, then put them in bags when they’re rock hard again.  To serve, pile them in big bowls–guests can just pick up a scoop with tongs and off they go!  It avoids the sticky mess and controls serving size.

While tent shopping I think I saw a soft serve ice cream machine for rent, so try wedding rental companies in your area.

We are also doing an ice cream bar! We are getting the giant tubs and putting them on ice, as it’s pretty inexpensive. Our guests would have to scoop it themselves, though, so maybe that freezing ice cream idea would be better! 🙂

I am arranging to have an ice cream sundae bar with my caterer – we’re using martini glasses, I thought it would be a nice treat to have a dessert other than wedding cake!

@MapleCreekBride:  We are probably haveing it put out shortly after dinner. We’re doing first dances after dinner, and the mother/son dances and all that business, so it will probably be sitting out for about 15-20 minutes before we get to it but I’m not worried about it melting 🙂

We’re doing an ice cream bar too! I haven’t been able to find an soft serve ice cream rental, so I’m considering buying one, and then either selling it afterwards or renting it out. They are expensive, but figure the demand is there. Please message me if your interested in renting/buying.
