What you need to know:
Harry and Meghan's royal wedding will take place on Saturday, May 19. For loyal fans, early coverage will begin on NBC at 4:30am. The wedding ceremony will begin at 12:00pm GMT, which is 7:00am (ET). You'll have to get up early, but it'll be worth it!
Here are some must haves for your watch party
1. Send Out Invites!
Invite your guests to your royal affair by creating your own custom invites. Pull from the sophistication of the actual invitations, with handwritten script embellished with gold accents. They might not have caught the official invitation from the Queen herself, but this is just as good.
2. Decorations are Key
In order to have a smashing gathering, your party should be decked out with the finest decor. Go crazy and pick up some Union Jack flags, glasses, and banners. Don't forget the token Corgi balloon in honor of the Queen!
3. Dress for Success
The Queen enforces a strict dress code for royal weddings so why wouldn't you? The trademarks of high English society are the flamboyant hats worn to almost every major gathering. Tell your guests to wear their most fashionable headpiece. Give out a prize for the best hat.
Food is an important part of any successful party. If you're waking up that early to watch the broadcast your guests will want some snacks. To stay awake and alert try brewing some traditional English Breakfast tea. Pair your tea with jams, scones, and a selection of finger sandwiches. Cucumber and egg salad are both popular flavors. If you're looking to impress your guests, try serving English brunch. Cook up some eggs, bacon, sausage, mushrooms, and tomatoes and serve them with baked beans and toast for a classic English breakfast.
5. Have Fun!
We've been anticipating this fabulous Royal Wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for months now. Gather your friends together, drink some tea, and watch Meghan and Harry's love story finally unfold!
