On Saturday May 19 Harry and Meghan will be official tie the knot. Both channel nine and the ABC have confirmed they will be airing the Royal wedding.
This calls for a celebration!
Coverage will take place from 7pm. On channel 9 you’ll have Georgie and Karl located in London and Windsor.
If you have Foxtel, then tune into the UKTV channel where you’ll be able to watch an uninterrupted stream of the wedding throughout the night.
When hosting a party there are a few things many consider, Will they have a theme? How will they entertain their guests? (In this instance we’ve got the wedding coverage) and what catering they’ll have.
Here at Party Remedy we’ve compiled a few ideas to get you started:
4 Fun Themes for a Royal Wedding Party
- Wedding Dress Party, get all the ladies together in their own gowns from years gone by
- Encourage everyone to come in their royal attire, think tiara’s, sashes, crowns
- Host a black affair and have a lavish champagne station to match
- Host a tea party (whilst it will be more of a supper for us in Australia)
Fun games to host at a Royal Wedding Party
There are always a swag of hats on show at a royal wedding. Invite everyone to create or bring a hat and host a hat competition, you could have prizes for biggest, most creative or just down right daggiest, depending on the level of sophistication you’re going for.
Create a royal trivia competition
You could create a trivia night in the lead up to the ceremony. Depending on how many people you’re hosting you could break it down into pairs or teams and have a souvenir as the prize.
Check out Buzz Feed for a 12 great royal question that will be sure to get the brains ticking over.
Host a royal wedding drinking game
This looks like a lot of fun! No doubt a few of these reference will be made throughout the evening.
Give each guest three sashes each, they’re not allowed to say the word ‘wedding’ or ‘royal’ if they do and you hear them you can take one of their sashes, the person with the most sashes after a period of time wins
Food and Drink fit for a Royal Wedding Party
As we’ll be watching the Royal Wedding in the evening Australia Time a super or dessert station is a great way to go. You may opt to invite guests a little earlier and host a dinner party however a dessert or supper station is a great way to go if hosting many. Here is our vision board for a little inspiration:
Mini Nude Cakes / Fruit Platter / Cucumber Sandwiches / Macarons / Party Pack
As well as food, what you drink is usually of high importance. Pimms always screams UK drinking so some jugs of Pimms will be nice, as well as some champagne or a lavish mimosa station to create a little variety for your guests.
Pimms / Rose Ice / Mimosa Station
