    @VossinatorsButterfly:  Fantastic Idea!

    I think for the afternoon a soup, salad & bread situation would be very weddingish and cheap (easily vegitarian also) You could ahve a couple different varitieys of each. You could even make the soup well in advance and freeze it.

    I don’t see a problem with the trays of food (on nicer platter) as long as people are expecting “small bites” not lunch.

    Sounds pretty good to me! As long as the food (and dessert) is plentiful, this is totally appropriate for an afternoon reception!

    This looks great, change the serving platter to something a little nicer and you’re all set.

    I’m doing an afternoon tea reception too, and it’s so much easier! We’re having sandwiches, cheese/appetiser platters, gourmet party pies/sausage rolls, as well as sweet things (tarts, scones with jam and cream, cupcakes, etc.). So much easier and cheaper than a “proper” meal.

    So long as your guests know what to expect I think this would be perfectly fine!
