Are you ready for the Royal Wedding?


The wedding of the year is fast approaching…yes Saturday 19th May 2018 will see the royal wedding of His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle take place at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. It was one of the worst kept secrets of recent royal history - the royal couple, who have been dating since June 2016, announced their engagement in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace. And the anticipation for the Royal Wedding has been building ever since.

People up and down the country have been getting ready for Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding. So if you plan to join in the celebrations, here are a few ideas of what to buy from around the internet…

Party Supplies

What better excuse to put out the bunting than a royal wedding? If you’re planning a street or house party to mark the couple’s big day, you’ll need to make sure your tables are dressed for the occasion. From plates to cups, balloons to table confetti, you can pick up a great range from Party Delights. But you needn’t stop at tableware…there’s also a whole host of union jack bunting, garlands, banners, string decorations and much more. Have a bit of fun with these royal family masks and life-size royal family cardboard cutouts!  

Official memorabilia

There’s nothing quite like a piece of china to celebrate an occasion! There is a beautiful collection of official commemorative fine bone china crockery available, including tankard, plate, pillbox, teacup and saucer and trinket box. Outside of the official collection, there are many other dinnerware and collectables available, including tea towels, biscuit tins, mugs and more. Take a look at the items available here.

A new outfit

Whilst the world awaits the arrival of Meghan in her wedding dress, for us mere mortals, the Royal wedding is a good excuse to get our glad rags on! Summer is on its way so for the ladies, a new summer dress might be just the ticket. Take a look at House of Fraser, Monsoon and Oasis for some stunning occasionwear looks. 

For the gents, you can’t beat a sharp suit. For an up to date version of the classis, take a look at Reiss. Or for a range of suits for every style and budget, head over to Slaters.

If you want to keep things casual but still get involved in the Royal wedding spirit, you can pick up a fun Harry and Meghan t-shirt from Spreadshirt.

A hat!

A wedding isn’t a wedding without a few hats on display and you can be sure the Queen will be wearing a hat befit of the occasion! John Lewis has a stunning range of occasion hats or for something with a smaller price tag, head to Debenhams for their selection of hats and fascinators.
