What is a picnic wedding?

A picnic wedding is a great way of having an outdoors wedding breakfast that can range from a self-service buffet table with sandwiches cakes and other tasty snacks to having “blanket service” with canapes and posh snacking. It is basically having meals outdoors with blankets on the grass as seating and the table.  Here are a couple of blogs to read to get a better sense of this type of wedding
