Tea for Ten

One wedding tradition that I actually do love is the bridal tea or luncheon. When I was twelve, my mother & sister, along with our friend, her mother, and her sister, all had a ladies’ tea at the Moana Surfrider in Hawaii, where we lived.

It’s one of my very favorite memories, and I still have the sandalwood fan from tea that day. There’s something about tea that’s so inherently genteel and calming.

While we don’t have a veranda in Hawaii *sigh* I do want to take a moment in the days before the wedding to stop, breathe, and take a moment to thank the special women in my life for their support during the planning process. I don’t know yet if it will be tea or lunch but I’m hoping to get everyone together the day before the wedding, if my sister can be here then (she’s a teacher, and will just be getting out of school). If not, maybe breakfast the day of the wedding, since we won’t have to be ready until later in the day.

Are you planning any type of tea or luncheon with your bridal party and/or female family members?
