For ice cream lovers

Dessert buffets are gaining popularity at wedding receptions and usually offer an assortment of cookies or candies. For an informal wedding in the DC area, I suggest setting up an ice cream bar containing homemade confections from Giffords Ice Cream & Candy Co., located in downtown DC and throughout the metro area. Known for their large selection of flavors and their ice cream's creamy, rich taste, this shop can whip up the perfect treat to accompany wedding cake. The best flavors to try are PB Cookies and Cream, Pistachio, Chocolate Marshmallow, and Caramel Toffee Swirl. They even sell their very own hot fudge and caramel sauces! Visit for all store locations and to look at their extensive list of flavors. —Abigail Reid, Editorial Assistant, Brides Maryland/Brides Washington
