With today being ice cream for breakfast day , I thought it was a great opportunity to talk about ice cream at weddings!! Firstly some history! In the 1960’s Florence Rappaport came up with the idea to make ice cream for breakfast to keep her children entertained when a huge blizzard hit Rochester, New York. Every year her children kept up the tradition and now it is celebrated worldwide. So thank you Florence for giving us an excuse to have ice cream for breakfast!!
Whatever time of year you are getting married, ice cream can be a great addition to your day! Here are some ideas that will give your wedding a quirky twist!
Have something different!
Want to get a non traditional wedding cake? Why not opt for an ice cream cake and give your guests something different! Try going for a 2 tier ice cream cake or mini ice cream cone inspired cake pops or even Baked Alaska!
Something to keep your guests entertained!
Allow your guests to make their own ice cream and hire an ice cream machine for your wedding reception! Make it a day everyone will never forget and the kids at the wedding will love it!!!
Get someone else to do it!
If you would prefer to have your guests relax and have a bit of fun why not hire a wedding cart and let them do the job for you! This is a great way to keep your guests from getting peckish and will get everyone up and moving around! Even a mix of ice cream and crepes instead of an evening buffet!
Beach themed wedding!
If you’re going for a beach themed wedding why not have ice cream keepsakes as wedding favours such as customised ice cream scoops! Have some fun signs hanging places saying phrases such as:
‘All you need is love and maybe a little ice cream’
‘Life is too short eat dessert first!’
‘Let us treat you to some ice cream for making our day complete!’
Fun fact: Research has shown that even just a spoonful of ice cream lights up the same pleasure centre in the brain as winning money or listening to your favourite music! So not only on your wedding day will it look good, taste good but it will also make everyone even happier on the day!! 😉
So go on get planning and don’t forget to have an ice cream while you do it!!! 😀
Happy ice cream day!!
