Wedding Reception Etiquette: Is a Tea Reception Okay?

Q:

We are getting married at noon. Would it be okay to have a tea wedding reception or must we serve a full wedding meal?

A:

It's perfectly acceptable to have a tea wedding reception as long as you state this clearly on your wedding invitations. The most important thing is that guests know beforehand that a full meal will not be served. You might think about going a bit heavier on the hors d'oeuvres, though, since your wedding reception will fall right during the lunch hour.
