Mouthwatering Ways to Serve Ice Cream at Your Wedding

It’s easy to get overwhelmed by your many wedding dessert options. Macarons, donuts, and cookies are all popular additions to the dessert table, but we think there is one more sweet that is sure to please all of your guests: ice cream. Think this frozen treat is difficult to serve on your big day (you don’t want it to melt!)? Think again. It should actually be a major contender for the sweet treat you serve at your celebration.

Whether you choose to serve ice cream along with other sweets or in place of a traditional wedding cake, know that this frozen treat will appeal to all of your attendees. Why? It comes in so many flavors. Offer multiple options (if you’re serving chocolate, you have to include vanilla!) to ensure everyone’s preferences are met. Want to stick to just one or two flavors? Make sure you have plenty of toppings. This couple topped their sundaes from Ted & Wally’s with mini wafer cookies, a healthy dose of whipped cream, and, of course, cherries.

Not only can you get creative with your toppings and flavors, but you can also play with how you serve this frozen treat. Ahead, you’ll discover that ice cream isn’t just limited to a cone or cup (although, it’s delicious served these ways, too). Many of the following couples opted for ice cream sandwiches, root beer floats, and milkshakes on their big days. Whether you decide to serve a little or a lot of this dessert, one of these ice cream wedding ideas is guaranteed to work for your party.
