Any time you do something a little off-the-beaten-path, some people will wig out. Their problem, not yours. And their loss, for not getting to experience what you are putting together. Your afternoon tea sounds fun! I would go, and enjoy it immensely.

Yeah, I don’t understand that either. Not every wedding is going to be the same, and where does it say you HAVE to have alcohol and a party environment? Your wedding will be beautiful!

Your wedding sounds lovely.  It is not your typical wedding and you shoudn’t have to subscribe to the typical wedding.  People complain about everything, you cant make everyon happy.  My wedding will essentially be a big party at the reception with alcohol and dancing and that is what we want.  But the ceremony will be a celebration of love and family.  Vant wait to see pics of your wedding.

While I’m not having a tea time, I am jut having a wonderful lunch with games ^-^ and I am the club dancing type! I love dancing so much but I nevsee liked weddings with dancing in it I allways just wanted to talk to old relatives. But when the band or DJ started more like scream at each other how our life is xD. i invited everyone together my family and my new family to interact and bond. Dancing infront of my grandma doesn’t should apealing especially the way I dance 0_o

I think it also greatly depends on your family and friends as well. Yes the wedding is about the bride and groom but it is also about providing a wonderful experience for your guests.

I personally think your wedding sounds divine and would enjoy a longer ceremony and afternoon tea party but not everyone would feel this way. Our family/friends in general would go insane and the afternoon tea wouldn’t be their “cup of tea” pardon my pun.

You don’t have to have a party, but you do need to take your guests into account. If there’s not enough food, drink, or entertainment, then of course people will get bored and not have a good time. As long as you make sure your guests are comfortable, you are being a good host and can have a successful wedding πŸ™‚

@mrsrigsby60:  couldyou please i nvite me to you wedding? Pretty please?

I would REALLY like to attend this pretty and different and classy event.

The wedding receptions that all blend together in my mind are the ones held in the evening where here must be dancing (because the bride wants to put on  Performances: Entrance, First Dance, yadda yadda) and then I’ve writen about my experiences at dance night events where there is NO ALCOHOL and not surpringly people leave early (but we were fmaily and couldn’T) and there isnt’ much dancing.  OMG. Never again.

I’d much rather attend an afternoon event as you describe.

We’re just having dinner and drinks at a nice restaurant. Probably about 50 people tops. No dancing, no DJ, no fanfare.

This sounds pretty awesome πŸ™‚  I love tea and classical music and luncheons with ladies.

The hour-long ceremony could raise some brows (or close some eyes) but if it keeps at an interesting pace and somehow involves the guests, it could be really meaningful! (Sorry, I’m a HS teacher and I imagine how they’d react to watching an hour-long lecture!)

@mrsrigsby60:  I even taliored the guest list to fit the type of wedding we are having.


Well then don’t worry about it! It should be a wonderful change of pace for people who can appreciate that sort of thing. I’m sure everyone will have a great time. πŸ™‚
