The royal wedding is almost here, and regardless of how much you actually care about it, we’ll take excuse to celebrate. Plus, chances are everyone will be talking about it when you go back to work on Monday, so why not get in on the fun yourself? Whether you’re a royal-family groupie, or relatively unphased by the whole event, everyone can can participate in these celebratory activities. And if you do, be sure to tag us on Instagram so we don’t get FOMO—we love to see what our readers are getting up to!


Go Watch the wedding

Sounds obvious, but going to watch the wedding in a public setting will allow you to marinade in all the excitement. If you’re in Sydney, we suggest heading over to Bar Cleveland in Redfern which will be showing the event on a giant projector, complete with some royal cocktails to accompany. Event Cinemas will also be screening the wedding at 8 p.m. at the “ Bondi Junction, Campbelltown and George Street outlets”, according to  The Sydney Morning Herald.

For those in Melbourne, the wedding will be broadcast in Federation Square. Or if you’re looking for something a little more upscale head to the Langham Hotel’s Aria Bar to toast the royal couple with a glass of champagne.

Have your own watch party

If going out sounds like a bit of a chore, why not host your own watch party? Gather your closest friends to screen the event whilst serving nibbles and drinks. You can even try out these 4 easy cocktails we’ve whipped up especially for the event. Raving about the dress will be so much better in person, rather than via group text… trust us.

Binge-watch The Crown

If you need to brush up on your background knowledge of the royal family, or just need an excuse for a Netflix marathon, prep for the wedding by binge-watching The Crown. This is the excuse you’ve been looking for, so open up that bottle of red, pop on a face mask, and get ready to be immersed in the royal family.

Create a flower arrangement

We know that  white garden roses, peonies, and foxgloves will be in the flower arrangements for the big day, so why not create one yourself? Flowers make a beautiful addition to any home, and this one is especially-celebratory for the big day.

Bake a cake

Now, we’re advocates of this for any occasion, but the royal wedding is a particularly convincing reason to bake a cake. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have confirmed that their cake will be a lemon elderflower cake with buttercream, so chanell these flavours in your own baking. Hint: This would be smart to serve at the aforementioned watch party.
