Simple afternoon tea wedding menu
Now that we’re back to catering our own wedding (with major help from the wedding party), I whipped up a concrete version of the simple afternoon tea wedding menu that’s been running around in my head. I’m aiming to keep this very very simple to spare us stress and cost and time.
Bich & Justin’s culture-mixing Mad Hatter wedding
A cancelled flight, a Yoda pinata, and the couple zorbing in their wedding gear… yep, this wedding is awesome!
Rebecca & Kain Kaare’s vintage, camp ground, tea party wedding
We were on a very tight budget and ended up spending only $3000 including our wedding clothes, rings, and the honeymoon. We had the wedding party at a campground to save cash. For food, I made alot myself but also got sandwiches from Jimmy Johns because it’s my favorite food. Kaare drew the design for our wedding invitation so we were able to make those ourselves.
We went with an eclectic look; clashing bright colors (mostly orange and paisley), bowls of skittles mingled with tea cups, and cupcake stands we made ourselves out of vintage plates. We also included my husband’s heritage by having a traditional Norwegian wedding cake in addition to the cupcakes.
Personalized teacups as wedding party gifts
We featured her photo of jams and jellies in our Yummy wedding favors post, and here she is yet again with an awesome idea and rad pics to boot! Kid Crayola added these pics of personalized teacups to the Offbeat Bride Flickr pool, and we think they are just deeeevine, darlings!
Linda & Stephen’s fairy tale, tea party wedding
Our ceremony was held deep in a rainforest under a giant fig tree. We chose the location because I have loved it ever since I was a child. (I used to think fairies lived in the tree!)
