Wow, it seems like Northern Africa has decided to invade Italy these days. Temperature has risen beyond 35° and humidity is high as well. As you can imagine, it can be really, REALLY tough to stay cool these days.

In the offices of WED Couture we have been lucky to have an exceptional designer. She surely saved our day as she came up with the perfect solution for our problems with too much heat. She simply thought of…ice pops.

If you are planning a summer wedding reception in Italy and are in need for an original idea for your party, you need to try these out. Let us rethink your food design – serving ice lollies instead of the more normal signature cocktails. A delicious and refreshing detail that is sure to wow your guests who will be delighted by your extravagant style and great intuition.

Mojito, Sangria, Frozen Strawberry Daquiry, Cucumber Vanilla Martini… all you need is a portion of each of your cocktails, some glasses, a couple of ice cream sticks and a little patience, and voilà! you’ve chosen a fabulous way of refreshing your summer party guests.

Think of how elegantly you can serve a drink and how the people at your summer party will enjoy this special treat.

And you are not limited to the alcoholic drinks, you could easily add some fruit cocktail ice lollies to your signature drink bar as well and let peole choose their favorite flavor: Cherry, mango, kiwi, apple, watermelon, strawberry, tutti frutti… the sky’s the limit when you decide what your guests are going to drink during your wedding reception in Italy. And what about super fun and surprising petal ice lollies? You can customize the colors of the edible flowers to suit the color theme of your wedding reception. Don’t you think they’re lovely?

Serve the ice lollies in glasses with a different shape than the lollies, put them in rows of one color each, or for a beautiful scenic solution let them sit on trays surrounded by dry ice.

You are sure to get a twist on your drink station, and your guests are bound to praise your talent for great details.
