    Just make sure you put that it’s a tea in your invitation…tea to follow ceremony, or something like that.

    I think that sounds great and really yummy! I do think the the savory crepe station is a good addition. Most important thing is to make sure you have enough of the more substantial foods like the quiche and sandwiches so that they don’t run out early, leaving some guests hungry!

    I think it sounds great.  As long as you have ENOUGH.  People might just eat more of what you do have to offer.

    I think this sounds really fun and a little different, but not so different it’s weird 🙂  if that makes sense!

    I personally would go NUTS at the crepe station.

    That sounds awesome!  I was sold when I saw “tea sandwiches” and “crepe station”!

    It sounds fun. That will be plenty of food for that time of day. I want to go 🙂

    I would be perfectly happy with this.  It sounds delicious to me.  However, my husband would absolutely need to go somewhere else afterwards to get a full meal.  And he would probably get cranky at some point during the afternoon because of this.  You may want to have your Fiance ask around to some of his man friends to see how they react.

    I think its hard to just if its “enough” without knowing quanity to number of guests. it seems like enough variety, but you just need enough food. you’ll have some guests who skipped lunch and will be hungry. And if you have kids/teenagers, they’ll probably eat more. Just make sure its a good ratio.

    I am planning a High Tea reception as well!  We’ve added in cheese and crackers along with some dips and veggies to be served on the side of the room half way through the tea.

    Good luck with your planning!
