Are you planning your dream wedding and looking for a unique and unforgettable way to entertain your guests? How about incorporating an ice cream truck into your special day! Ice cream trucks are fun, whimsical, and offer a delicious treat that your guests will love. In this blog post, we’ll share some tips and ideas for incorporating a Scoops Soft Serve ice cream truck into your wedding celebration.
1. Choose the perfect spot for the ice cream truck
When planning to include an ice cream truck at your wedding, it’s important to find the perfect spot for it. Consider placing it near the entrance or the reception area, so your guests can easily find it. Make sure there is enough space for the truck and that it’s accessible for both guests and staff.
2. Match the ice cream truck’s décor to your wedding theme
At Scoops Soft Serve, we can customise our ice cream truck to match your wedding theme! Whether you’re going for a vintage, rustic, or modern look, we can decorate our truck to fit seamlessly into your celebration. Just let us know your vision, and we’ll make it happen!
3. Select the perfect ice cream flavours
With our extensive menu, you can choose from a variety of delicious ice cream flavours and toppings to delight your guests. You can even create a custom flavour that represents you and your partner, or offer a selection of your favourites for guests to choose from!
4. Offer creative dessert options
In addition to traditional ice cream cones and cups, consider offering other fun dessert options like ice cream sandwiches, floats, or sundaes. This will give your guests more choices and make the experience even more memorable.
5. Plan the perfect timing
To make the most of your ice cream truck experience, consider when you’d like it to be available during your wedding. Some great options include:
- During cocktail hour: Offer ice cream as a refreshing treat between the ceremony and reception.
- After dinner: Surprise your guests with a sweet treat after they’ve enjoyed the main course.
- As a late-night snack: Keep the party going with a cool and delicious pick-me-up for your dancing guests.
6. Create fun photo opportunities
Our Scoops Soft Serve ice cream truck is not only a source of delicious treats but also a fantastic backdrop for photos! Encourage your guests to take fun and candid pictures with the truck, and provide props like inflatable ice cream cones, colourful sunglasses, or chalkboard signs for them to use.
7. Personalise your ice cream cups or cones
For an extra special touch, consider personalising your ice cream cups or cones with your names, wedding date, or a cute design that matches your theme. This adds a fun, custom element to your dessert and makes it even more memorable for your guests.
8. Offer non-dairy or vegan options
Don’t forget about guests with dietary restrictions! Make sure to offer non-dairy or vegan ice cream options, so everyone can enjoy a sweet treat at your wedding.
9. Use the ice cream truck as a unique guestbook
Instead of a traditional guestbook, ask your guests to sign the side of the ice cream truck with washable markers or chalk. This creates a fun, interactive experience and leaves you with a one-of-a-kind keepsake from your special day.
10. Include fun games and activities
Make the ice cream truck experience even more exciting by incorporating fun games and activities for your guests to enjoy while they wait for their treats. You could set up a bean bag toss, giant Jenga, or even a DIY ice cream cone decorating station to keep everyone entertained.
11. Provide custom signage
Create custom signs to place near the ice cream truck, informing your guests about the available flavours, toppings, and dessert options. You can also include a sweet message, like “Love is sweet, enjoy a treat!” to add a personal touch.
12. Share the love on social media
Encourage your guests to share their ice cream truck experience on social media using a custom wedding hashtag. This not only helps you collect fun memories from your big day but also shows off your unique and creative wedding celebration to friends and family who couldn’t attend.
Incorporating a Scoops Soft Serve ice cream truck into your wedding is a delightful way to add a touch of whimsy and create unforgettable memories for you and your guests. With our flexible options, delicious menu, and commitment to making your day extra special, we’re here to help you bring your dream wedding to life!
