Vintage Tea Party
Go Vintage for your Wedding – Have you considered having a Tea Party themed wedding? Many couples envisage their English Country wedding to be stylish, traditional and picturesque. One way to ensure this is by hosting a tea party themed reception, and today, retro tea parties are all the rage. The industry is moving towards a more personalised service where the bride and groom get involved with the caterers and venues and are therefore able to tailor their receptions to match their expectations exactly.

If you are looking for something different for your wedding then an English Tea Party is certainly an option worth considering. For many people cost is becoming a significant factor, this could be the perfect solution… The menu for a vintage style tea party can be as simple or extravagant as you like with a directory of teas, sandwiches and savoury dishes; from cucumber and smoked salmon sandwiches, fresh scones and strawberries, to Welsh Rarebit; from macarons and cup cakes, to homemade biscuits and Eccles cakes. The bride and groom can be as traditional or as contemporary as they like.
Why not consider having a High Tea for your wedding breakfast with the decor centred round vintage crockery, all handpicked and individual in design, and that complements your chosen theme. You can then put your own stamp on additional table fancies (fresh flowers, handcrafted favours, and place settings), making an individual wedding that is personal to you, and in essence, a wedding that your guests would remember.
If you are really looking to cut costs then why not consider getting friends and family to bake your favourite cakes for the day. This gives guests the opportunity to feel like they are part of the planning process as well as the day itself which will not only give your special day the personal touch, but also help to keep costs down.
The great thing about this theme is that you can work it to any budget and venue. You can create the setting, using your favourite colours, through use of beautiful crockery, handmade favours, napkins, table cloths & fresh flowers. Whether you are picturing a picnic on the lawn with croquet, picnic rugs, and bunting, a marquee in the garden with a string quartet, a hotel reception with a live band, or a town hall with a harpist, you can tailor the venue to your requirements with beautiful handpicked crockery and place settings. This is an ideal theme for those who want to put their own stamp on their wedding and be really involved in the look and feel of the breakfast. Explore your creative side!
