Have you ever thought about an ice cream truck for the wedding? Whether spring, summer, autumn or winter, if we have our way, ice cream always works. Not only for us, but probably also for your wedding guests. An ice cream van for the wedding is a nice way to offer yourself as the bridal couple but also to their guests a delicious cool down, especially in warm temperatures. Of course, ice cream tastes good at any time of the year, for example there are also delicious winter variations.
We discovered the ice cream truck for the wedding in the photos in this post at this late summer wedding in warm autumn tones. We were so enthusiastic about it that we really wanted to include the topic as a separate post on our blog.

Ice cream van for the wedding as a highlight
In our opinion, an ice cream van for the wedding is a highlight, especially if you haven’t revealed anything to the guests in advance and this is a great surprise. You don’t have to prepare a lot for this, you usually only need a socket for the power connection. The rest of the work is done by the respective service provider, who provides you with the ice cream truck, staff and everything around it.
The only important decision is which types of ice cream you choose for the wedding day. Of course, your favorite ice cream flavors should be there, but there are also some unusual flavors that make it a highlight.
In general, however, you should also speak to the location of the wedding reception to see whether they have any objection to an external ice cream van.
When and how long should the ice cream truck be available?
Should you decide on an ice cream truck for the wedding, you should consider when exactly the ice cream truck will be available for you and your guests. Depending on your budget, this can
- to the reception,
- suitable for dessert
- or all the time
stand ready. Especially in midsummer, for example, the reception would be well suited, as your guests will definitely be looking forward to a delicious refreshment in the form of an ice cream between the wedding ceremony and the wedding celebration.
Where can I rent an ice cream truck?
There are many different providers of ice cream trucks for the wedding. Here it is helpful to search accordingly with a search engine of your choice. Often the ice cream trucks only work in the immediate vicinity, or the travel costs are then too high. So it all depends on where exactly you want to celebrate your wedding.
The ice cream van shown in this article comes, for example, from eis4rent, which offers creative ice cream catering from Frankfurt.
How expensive is your own ice cream truck?
The prices for your own ice cream van during the wedding reception naturally depend on the provider. Of course, the number of ice cream types offered and the number of guests also play a role. On the various websites of the providers, prices are almost nowhere mentioned, so the first contact must be made for an exact offer.
However, we discovered a price list on a website that gives a rough idea of the possible costs for renting an ice cream van:
- 150.00 euros for transport, assembly and dismantling within a radius of 100 km
- 18.50 euros per hour personnel costs (from the third hour)
- 15.00 euros per kilo of ice cream including basic equipment (waffles, cups, napkins, etc.)
In addition, there are various extra requests such as sauces, chocolate shavings or maybe even an electric spaghetti ice press or cream machine.
It is also a nice idea to offer the ice cream truck as a dessert after dinner. You can then plan the money you save on dessert after the wedding dinner for the ice cream.
By the way, you shouldn’t only consider the costs of the pure ice cream truck. If you want to decorate it with flowers as beautifully as you can see in this article, then of course these costs will come on top.
Is an ice cream truck worth it for the wedding?
Would you be happy if someone gave you an ice cream right now at this time? We definitely do. Regardless of whether you are a child or an adult, the ice cream will definitely be a hit at the wedding. Of course, an ice cream van for the wedding would be a highlight, which is sure to go down well with your guests. On the other hand, this is again an additional item in your budget plan.
As a bridal couple, you have to decide for yourself exactly where your priorities are and how much budget you have available for the wedding. But feel free to ask yourself how you would find it as a guest at a wedding if there is an ice cream truck with a really great selection of different types of ice cream. We would definitely be thrilled.
