Plan your own Royal Wedding Party
Invite your friends to attend your very own ‘Royal Wedding Party’ in your humble abode. Suggest that guests who plan on attending try to get to sleep around 9 p.m. the night before (nobody wants a grouch). Invite guests to arrive a little before 5 a.m. and make sure the channel is set and distractions are a minimum.
You’ll want to have food and drinks for everyone, so grab some breakfast treats, perhaps a scone, a coffee, and for those seeking a little kick, try the classy yet delicious mimosa- just champagne and orange juice!
Remember- just because you weren’t invited, doesn’t mean you didn’t attend!
