3 Adorable Ways to Serve Ice Cream at Your Wedding

Deep down, every couple wants a wedding as unique as their relationship. From destination weddings to backyard nuptials, newlyweds hope to entertain their guests by making their wedding one to remember.

While there are many ways to make a reception more unique, serving ice cream can add a special sense of fun and nostalgic charm. Summer weddings and weddings that welcome children are especially well-suited for sweet, frozen treats.

If you’re hoping to make your wedding a bit more fun and unusual, consider serving ice cream. Here are just a few adorable and creative ways to wow your guests with America's favorite dessert:

1. Design Custom Ice Cream Cups

Serve up something special by ordering custom ice cream cups for your wedding. Dessert cups decorated with your shared last name, the wedding date, or other special symbols of your love can take the ice cream you serve to a whole new level. As a bonus, custom ice cream bowls look adorable in reception photos, and you might even notice guests taking extra cups home as party favors!

2. Design a Signature Sundae

Pair custom ice cream cups with a custom flavor experience! Though a survey of International Ice Cream Association member companies revealed that vanilla remains the most popular flavor among their consumers at 28%, your wedding is a special day that warrants a unique taste. Create a sundae bar loaded with toppings that pair with other parts of your wedding meal, like strawberries and fudge to go with steak and a dessert wine. For a summery wedding serving Pina Coladas, carry the tropical flavors over with a toasted-coconut sundae. The possibilities are endless!

3. Go Beyond the Cone

Though ice cream is wonderful, ice cream served in cones can become a bit messy. If your guests will be arriving in more formal attire, spare them the stains and offer cleaner ways to enjoy your frozen treats. Though bowls and spoons are an obvious option, consider tastier alternatives, like wrapped ice cream sandwiches, milkshakes, or even an ice cream cake. Your well-dressed guests will thank you.

Everyone expects cake at a wedding, but fewer people expect ice cream! Upgrade your reception sweets with these fun and memorable ice cream ideas.
