Where to Celebrate the Royal Wedding
It’s the most important event since Will & Kate walked down the aisle and we shrieked with joy at her dress, and horror at his hairline (sorry Will) – the nuptials of HRH Prince Harry and Megan Markle (she’ll always be Rachel Zane to us).
Where will you be Saturday 19thMay when Megan walks down the aisle for the royal wedding? We’ve got the scoop on how and where to celebrate.
OUT ON THE TOWN
Event Cinema| Chermside & Indooroopilly
A massive event like this needs a massive screen, and they don’t come much bigger than Event Cinemas. Recline in cinema comfort as you judge the royals arrive (what hat will Beatrice wear this time?) and watch the newlyweds declare their love for each other. Romance is not dead!
We recommend booking ‘the Royal Package’, which includes a red, white or sparkling, popcorn or choc top for the royal treatment. Get slammed up and be ready to receive her majesty.
Treasury Brisbane| CBD
Dress to impress and show the royals up (Pippa who?) with the ultimate Royal Wedding celebration at Treasury Brisbane. Hosted by Treasury Brisbane ambassador Damian Anthony Rossi, enjoy three hours of Chandon, Pimms and Tanqueray Spritz as the main event is broadcast on the big screen.
Dine like a duke with a high tea supper set menu, and dress like one as well – pearls, hats and fascinators for the ladies, and gents? Break out those tails. Book here!
FROM THE COUCH
Prefer to get fancy in the comfort of your own home? Throw on a tiara and forget about getting out of your pyjamas – the fun can be brought to you.
In celebration of all things bright and British Deliveroo is teaming up with Saltin Rosalie to deliver eye fillet with roast root vegetables, demiglaze and Yorkshire pudding to your door.
If you’re slightly more pro-active we recommend hitting up Woolies beforehand and busting out cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches, some cheeky scones with jam and cream and drinking your gin out of a tea cup, just as Her Majesty would have want.
Unleash the doves and practise the words to ‘God Save The Queen’, we’re wedding ready.
Words by Emma Callaghan – the gourmand who is still pretty sure she’ll marry a prince.
