Ice Cream at a Wedding?

Okay so it's ice cream week over at The Kitchen and while I've resisted the temptation to go out and spent all the groceries money on frozen confections, all the pretty pics of gourmet ice cream has made me wonder why more people don't serve ice cream at a wedding.  Sure cake is traditional but most large weddings serve the guest sheet cake, and does anyone above the age of 10 actually like it that much?  Why not serve a few flavors of ice cream in a pretty dish or set up an ice cream buffet with sprinkles and the like.  Perhaps it's too messy and melty for a wedding but I know I'd welcome the alternative to the standard butter cream frosting.  What could be more refreshing at a hot late-summer wedding than ice cream after all?   Don't believe me?  Maybe the photos below will convince you!
