How to host perfect royal wedding

With the royal nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle almost upon us, what better excuse to break out the gin and tonic and celebrate in good old fashioned British style?

Establish a dress code

Channel Princess Beatrice and Eugenie circa 2011 and set fascinators and hats as your dress code or celebrate the new princess in your very own tiara. Try this Black Mesh Feather Fascinator Headband for £29.99 or this White Mermaid Crown Hairband for £7.99, both from New Look.



Meghan Markle loves peonies so decorate your home with lovely fresh flowers or go all out with the British themed bunting, and photos of the Royal Family. For something a little different pick up this Metallic Photo Bunting from New Look for £4.99 and print off some images of Harry and Meghan.

This confetti from the Card Factory for only 99p will also add something special to your buffet table.

Brew a pot of tea

What is more British than a good cuppa? Brew a pot of classic English breakfast tea, but also offer your guests an alternative herbal tea. This Pukka Love tea is perfect for celebrating the union of Meghan and Harry, and all things romance, available from Holland and Barrett for £2.45. Serve finger sandwiches, cupcakes and scones with your tea – and of course champagne!

Celebrate the wedding of the year in style and throw a wonderfully British gathering for your friends, family and neighbours and pop to your local Mall for some party inspiration.
