There’s something about the traditions of wedding and receptions that acts as a time machine. It doesn’t feel anachronistic to still follow the same traditions that everyone who came before followed. There’s something magical about it, some unseen connection that each and every couple who have ever joined in a union are just following in something greater than themselves. All of the married couples watching the ceremony are transported into the past, while all of the current couples who haven’t taken the leap are looking into a potential future, while the couple getting married is living their present, bringing their past to bear, and looking forward to the future. It’s a beautiful thought and an amazing experience for all involved. There’s one treat that has seemed to permeate throughout time. It sounds classic when mentioned, and yet it’s still craved to this day, and it stays the same while also receiving slight innovations throughout time. That treat is the milkshake.
Don’t milkshakes scream 50’s diner? Yet, somehow, they’re still a desirable treat today. They don’t go out of style. Milkshakes are timeless. So why not have a milkshake bar? Transport your guests to the past, while also enjoying the present and looking toward the future. There are so many choices, especially now with how creative the business has gotten. There’s no longer just the three standards, although there’s nothing wrong with them. Feel like a s’mores milkshake? No problem. Want a drinkable apple pie? Done deal. Cookies n’ Creme is always great as an ice cream, it’s going to be just as great as a milkshake. They even have cake flavors, so if you don’t really feel like eating any cake, you can just grab a shake of it and have just as great of a time! If you want to add on, why not have some toppings? Whipped creme, sprinkles, cherries, all are classics. There’s some that you may not have even considered, such as french fries, the salt contrasting with the sweet, thick taste of the shakes. Don’t be afraid to mix and match! Just something to consider!
