You might be reading this, thinking what is she thinking? DIY’ing your own ice pops at a summer wedding? Surely they will melt? Well it’s actually not that crazy! The great thing with ice pops is that they can be made way in advance and stored in a freezer and they can be served easier than your think? Some sort of refrigeration will almost definitely be needed but you could have friends and family help with serving them up at your wedding, taking them straight from the freezer and placing in metal buckets topped with layers of ice, or just get your guests to help themselves straight from the cart.
