    Default Kitchen tea

    What is generally the dress code for a kitchen tea? I've never been to one before. My friend who is getting married is doing things quite traditionally so I don't think it will be an anything goes affair.

    Smart casual. Think a Sunday dress or pants and nice top. I'd steer clear of jeans.

    Depends where it's being held, who's hosting it, etc......

    If it's at the brides mums house, & a grandmas & elderly aunties type kitchen tea with homemade sandwiches & cakes & cups of tea, I'd say jeans & a nice top.

    But if it's hosted by bridesmaids, out at a high tea venue & is a smoked salmon tartlets & petit fours with champagne type of affair, then a dress & heels for sure.....

    Ive got one I'm attending coming up I'm wearing a maxi dress with old colored sandals, I don't think you have to be over the top. I would go with a dress or nice top and dress pants.

    Thanks. So out of these is #2 ok or a bit OTT? #1 is what I'd wear for a regular afternoon tea at a friends place, or like a coffee date. #2 I'd wear to a casual Xmas party or semi-nice restaurant. It's at the bride's mum's house for afternoon tea on Sunday arvo

    Blah, pink cardi looks really washed out in both. It's much more pink IRL

    Both look gorgeous but I love the pop of pink in the second.

    Thank you BubHub fashion oracle the pink cardi is really quite pink so I thought the second might be a bit much. But I do like an excuse to wear tiny satin flowers, so yay
