Do you love that things are not conventional, do you love to have fun, or you just don’t want to grow up yet? Well, we have an idea just for you that is just Mad, and just like the Mad Hatter himself we’ve come up with some wacky idea for a Wedding Breakfast..
Earl Grey is the only tea to be served. It needn’t be high quality and can be of any origin, just make sure it’s Early Grey.
There are three sandwiches which are appropriate for a Mad Hatters Tea Party; minted cucumber, egg mayonnaise and mustard cress, and smoked salmon and cream cheese. Cutting your sandwiches into heart shapes is cute, but would Alice approve of your allegiance to the Queen of Hearts?
The Chelsea Bun
The Chelsea bun is known predominantly for throwing, so get involved, it’s what Tea Parties are made for.
Height should not be discriminated against; therefore, shortbread is totally acceptable at the tea table.
Wedding flowers perfection should be avoided at all costs. If you have a budget for plants, stick to twigs, decaying leaves and fungi.
The maddest guests needn’t be invited, they will simply fall through the rabbit hole and stumble across your party by chance.
Colourful, bold and avant-garde.
No one is allowed to have similarities in wedding hair colour or style, other than that, anything goes.
Matching furniture is forbidden; the more quintessentially Wonderland, the better.
Be specific when choosing your guests based on personality, if they aren’t at least slightly crazy, they won’t fit in.
Being hospitable is essential. This can be achieved through planning a range of unrecognisable party games.
If you’re worried about being outside and it raining, it doesn’t matter too much as the best Mad Hatters Tea Parties are set in very little sunlight. For big budget tea parties, rain and mist machines are encouraged.
If you can’t get bums on seats, bums on anything is fine. Stools, shelves, giant mushrooms; anything goes.
One ginger cat is required as ‘purr’ its Cheshire heritage.
This is banned as there is no time in wonderland. However, we would only suggest this tip as optional as if adhered to it can cause havoc, after all, you don’t want your guests to be late for this very important date.
