Don't like wedding cake - doing a brownie sundae bar

1. What Abbie mentioned. Any chocolate dessert I have had in Jamaica has not really tasted as good or as chocolatey as what I am used to. You may need to bring your chef boxes of Betty Crocker mix.
2. How will you keep the ice cream cold while guests are lining up to make their sundae? I would just make sure your venue has something suitable for this.
This thread did make me want a brownie sundae though!
Maureen - I agree about bringing my own brownie mix. I think I will definitely do that! (Although, I really wish I could get my favorite brownie's from a restaurant in Houston delivered to Jamaica!) Also, I thought about the whole keeping the ice cream cold thing. I'm thinking dry ice (which would make a very cool visual effect) under the ice cream buckets. Or I thought about getting some of those big silver ice-cream-maker-bowl-thingies (yeah, I'm pretty sure that's the technical term) that have dry ice in the inside insulation part and then the ice cream in the bowl part.

And my resort is very accommodating! My fiance has a very odd request (I'm sure I'll post a thread about it eventually) to make a platform that extends into the water for the ceremony and the resort said they would build it or find someone to build it for us. So I'm hoping they can/will find a way to make this work too!

Anyone in Austin, TX who feels like going out for a brownie sundae sometime soon? I'm seriously fiending for one now!

I love homemade cake but am not a huge fan of wedding/bakery cakes...so the cake was not really a big deal to me. We just got the free one that came with our package. I say you should do whatever you want...traditional...nontraditional whatever! It's your day...do what makes you happy...someone is always going to have something to say so do what you and FI want and don't worry about it

A brownie sundae bar sounds amazingly perfect! Brownies are my favorite dessert , and a la mode makes everything better anyway.

 

I like the idea of bringing the boxes with you to make sure they're what you want.

I have gone to 4 weddings this year and as much as I've enjoyed the wedding cakes (don't get me wrong they were all tasty) the idea of having something different and fun like a sundae bar is so awesome! I say go for it!

I love dessert buffets at weddings!!! So I say go for it! But I agree with the others that chocolate tastes different in Jamaica, so you might want to bring your own mix!!! Or maybe bring a recipe for the chef to use!

Definitely do your brownie sundae bar! I would love it as a guest....

 

FI like you doesn't like cake at all..(his mom still buys him one every year)..lol..so our WC in Vegas is having the baker do a tiered cheesecake for us!!! We will have strawberry (his fave), plain & chocolate for me!!!

 

Our AHR will have the tiered cupcakes!!!

Wow well..

i like this brownie sundae idea as well as all the other suggestions. I was thinking of having a wedding cake however now i am not sure:) I have not actually attended that many weddings so i am no expert on wedding cake!

i am also starting toward the little cupcake idea and the flavors suggested Marie sam sounded delicious! so many choices so little time...

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
