    She’s crazy. Southerners drink sweet tea. Why would you want nasty old unsweet tea??

    Definitely sweet tea! A southern wedding would not be complete without sweet tea! Hell, I’m from Canada and even I know that 🙂

    Go for sweet tea! I don’t think a ton of people will care for unsweetened.

    I live in the South and Sweet Tea is a HUGE southern thing.  If it doesn’t have at least half a pound of sugar in it or lots of fat, it isn’t “true southern”.  Honest, I have heard people say this!  

    HOWEVER, there’s also the issue of diabetics who can NOT have a lot of sugar.  

    I’m not sure what I would do if I could only have one or the other, to be honest, because we have family members who are diabetics.  

    good luck!!!

    While I do like unsweetened tea (my Texan card will be revoked for saying that!), sweet tea is just too classic “South” to not have it. People will probably wonder why the tea is unsweetened if you don’t have sweet tea!

    I get how huge it is in the south but my husband has turned me to unsweet tea, I know how horrible, right?  I think it’s better for me so I’ve learned to live without the sugar. 

    I chose sugar free because you can always ADD sugar to it yourself while it’s hard to take sugar out of sweet tea.  And with my family, it’s like “Would you like some tea with your tea?”  If you have unsweet, people can pour accordingly.

    Also, $150 on a catering bill is chump change in the world of weddings! Go for it!

    Oh I had to vote for the good old bitter unsweetened tea but thats because I am the ultimate west coast girl and I think that sweet tea stuff is nasty.  ok with that said, sweet tea is the southern thing and it would go with your theme.  Sounds like a small detail but when I think of drinks and the south, I think sweet tea and mint juleps.  If its in the budget I’d go for it. I know you can add sugar to tea but that is not the same as sweet tea

    Is it possible to go with the unsweetened, but have carafes of simple syrup available if people want to sweeten their tea? I went to a restaurant once where it was served this way and I absolutely loved that I could sweeten it to my exact liking.

    Neither of us are from the south but live in NC now and were for our wedding.  We did NOT have any tea – any form at all.  Neither of us like it that much and it was easier to just have water & sparkling water on the tables plus beer, wine & soda at the bar.  I vote for NO TEA!
