The idea of having a traditional afternoon tea is a charming alternative to a formal sit-down meal. You can serve all your favorite sweet treats and picnic delights, with pastries, sandwiches, cakes and fruit. This light meal idea is perfect for summer weddings, or those with an outdoors, garden theme. Arguably, one of the best parts about having an afternoon tea at your wedding is all the beautiful, elegant crockery that the food will be served on!
