We are having a tiny wedding with approximately 30 people, us included. We are targeting under $10/person.
Both of our tentative venues remind me of The Secret Garden.
I have made tea cakes before and am a tea enthusiast. I can make decent scones. I've never done clotted creams or jams.
I read it was convenient to make the sandwiches the day before and chill them. Is that true?
I can get a caterer to make an assortment of tea sandwiches for $90: $3/person
She will do half that for $58 or $1.93/person
Utensils, glasses and settings for about $60: $2/person
Case of Pellegrino $12: $0.40/person
Case of Martinelli's $25: $0.83/ person
Tea Leaves & water are sunk costs.
I am missing scones, cream and jelly and I am already at $9.73.
I want it to be cute, relatively low maintenance and not tacky.
What do you think? I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. please provide any suggestions.
Is this tacky? Is this relatively low key?
