The Bostonian's guide to a royal wedding viewing party

Royal Wedding viewing party fascinator and London tea kettle
My mom and I got up early to watch Prince William and Kate's wedding 7 years ago and its a great memory. We got scones and sat in our PJ's, ohhing and ahhing over Kate's dress and watching a fairy tale.

In just a few weeks on May 19th, I am looking forward to repeating this tradition with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's royal wedding. Here's the Bostonian's guide to a royal wedding viewing party:

Buy a fascinator: There are hat stores in Boston that sell fascinators! Head to Marie Galvin Fine Millinery in the South End or Salmagundi in the North End or Jamaica Plain for special pieces. Above is a fascinator I bought for a friend's royal wedding themed bridal shower 7 years ago that I will wear on May 19th!

Get some scones: Flour Bakery, with several locations in Boston + Cambridge, makes amazing scones, so pick up a half a dozen before the sell out! Or, be more adventurous and make your own with their cookbook.

Purchase your tea cup + saucer set: Find a unique tea cup and saucer set at an antique shop like Cambridge Antique Market or the South End Antique Mall. Bonus points for matching kettle. Don't forget the tea!

Decorate!: I love shops like Neatly Nested Design & Decor, Hudson, and Shake the Tree that are sure to have pretty decor pieces for your at home viewing party.

Set your alarm for 6am on May 19th to be all ready for the nuptials! The wedding will start around 7am EST or noon in London. Can't wait!

PS: If you are a looking to show up dressed to impress and to celebrate the royal wedding, my company, Boston Weddings, will be hosting a royal wedding viewing party with and at the Fairmont Copley Plaza. Check out the details here and below!
