The media is currently abuzz with new daily updates about the Royal Wedding between Prince Harry and Megan Markle on Saturday 19th May. According to reports, Megan has spent an eye watering £400,000 on her wedding dress for the occasion, with lots of speculation over which designer will design the dress.
Whoever planned the date clearly didn’t check what other events were happening on the day, as the 19th May is also FA Cup Final day. Fear not though, as depending on which team hoists the cup, it could be a day for double celebrations.
What better way to spend the day than celebrating with a party! Here are some tips on how to organise a Royal Wedding party…
Send out invites
Invite your friends and family round for a party feast and spread the celebrations throughout the day to cover the Wedding and FA Cup Final. There are lots of fun party invite ideas and other royal wedding party crafts on Pinterest to get your guests truly in the party spirit. It may not be an invite to the actual wedding, but it will be an invite to a fabulous party to celebrate!
Prepare your garden
If you are unable to have a street party, then have a garden party instead! Covering any eventuality with the weather, it’s best to have a gazebo just in case. Make sure you mow your lawn as close to the event as possible, or if you are already considering having fake grass laid down, this is the prime opportunity! Easy to maintain and clear up after the event and the greatest excuse to have more garden parties in future! String fairy lights around your garden for when the night starts drawing in, adding colour during the day and the night.
Whether you are having a BBQ or a buffet, make sure you stock up on food and drink to mark the special day in style! By that time BBQ food should be in an abundance in the shops and stores such as Aldi always have a great selection at a very reasonable price. Cakes are always a winner at garden parties and if you are looking for a traditional cake, a Victoria Sponge cake is always well received.
