A La Mode

…to continue the saga of our wedding cake:

My mom felt really bad that we wouldn’t be able to hold a pie contest at the wedding. She, too, agreed that it would be fun to do something nontraditional for dessert, although she wanted to have a wedding cake regardless. So she came up with the brilliant idea of hiring an ice cream truck to deliver sweet treats to the reception right after the cake cutting. That’s right, y’all—we’re having an ice cream truck!

When my mom dreamed that one up, I was like:

We did some research into ice cream truck rentals in the Houston area, and we decided to hire Shannon of Snowdog Ice-Cream. For a pretty low cost, she will drive her truck to the venue (probably at the designated “cake cutting” time so our guests can enjoy their cake a la mode!), she will serve an ice cream for every guest, and she will play whatever music we like. The ice cream selection is great: Blue Bell ice cream sandwiches (you Southern brides will know what I’m talkin’ about!!), snow cones, cartoon character ice cream Popsicles and ice cream bars (the kids will love these!), frozen fruit bars, Choco Tacos (!!!), Skinny Cow ice cream bars, and Austin’s Organic ice cream in a wide variety of flavors. Gosh, I am drooling a tiny bit right now just typing this post. My favorite part about the ice cream truck is that Shannon lets the bride and groom serve ice cream to their guests right out of the truck! Mr. Wallaby and I can’t wait.
