The Royal wedding is nearly here and we cannot wait. We’ve booked the 19th off (still crying that we don’t get an extra bank holiday) and there’s a 100% chance we’ll be throwing a party to celebrate. Meghan and Harry are basically the most relatable royals out there so we’re totally rooting for them. Got a case of Royal wedding fever too? Send out the invites and let’s get party planning…
1. Throw a Street Party
There’s something about a Royal wedding that gets us feeling super-nostalgic so throw it right back to the 50s and host a street party. Grab your pals and neighbours, a few tables and a whole lot of bunting to get things rolling. It’s an amazing way to bring everyone together, plus it takes loads of stress out of the party planning process because everyone’s there to chip in with food and drink.
2. Host Afternoon Tea
We literally never need an excuse for cake, but a Royal wedding is a pretty good reason anyway. Afternoon tea is about as British as it gets – and super sophisticated – so it’s the perfect way to celebrate a brand new royal power couple. Bag a vintage tea set, stock up on scones and Victoria sponge and make it elegant with some floral cushions.
3. Have a Viewing Party
Anyone else already been watching back-to-back episodes of Suits just to keep them going until the big day? We’re definitely not alone and there’s no way we’re missing the real-life Meghan Markle story, so gather around the biggest screen available and host a viewing party. Make it official with invites and a wedding-themed dress code.
4. Channel a Red, White and Blue Theme
If you want to channel your appreciation in a totally fashion-appropriate way, give your party a red, white and blue theme. All three colours are key for SS18, so mix and match or work a directional look and go monotone from head to toe.
5. Host Your Own Reception
Didn’t get an invite to the after party? (Us neither). Throw your own instead! We’re thinking throwing on your best dress and accessories, sipping on champagne and sending your guests off with Royal wedding-themed party favours.
