Deliciously Fun Ice Cream Wedding Details

Ahhh, is there anything more refreshing on a hot summer day than a scoop of ice cream? In honor of National Ice Cream Day on July 20th, find out how to incorporate this sweet treat into your wedding details!

Wedding Cake Alternative

Don't want to serve a traditional wedding cake? Consider having a multi-flavored ice cream tower, instead! Cold Stone, Ben & Jerry's and Carvel all offer options that will satisfy any couple's sweet tooth. Mini ice cream cone-inspired cake pops (like the ones pictured below from Jenny Cookies) are also a crowd pleaser. Find local bakeries near you ►

Ice Cream Bar 

An ice cream bar is the ultimate dessert idea for a warm-weather wedding. Recreate an old-fashioned ice cream parlor in the middle of your reception and include a fun assortment of sweet and savory toppings. From sprinkles to hot fudge and candy to whipped cream, guests will love coming up with their own concoctions.
