Wedding Crashers: Your Ticket to the Royal Wedding
There will be events in Midtown to celebrate the Royal Wedding.
Unless your name is Elton John, we’re guessing you didn’t find an invitation to the wedding of Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton in your mailbox alongside your Comcast cable bill. But that doesn’t mean you have to miss the big day. Tune in to watch at home (assuming you paid that bill), or head to one of the Midtown venues serving up blissful ways to join the celebration.
Piedmont Park will feature live coverage of the Royal Wedding on Friday, April 29, as well as drinks and displays from Atlanta's top wedding and event vendors. The affair will be held in a tent overlooking the new Legacy Fountain. It runs from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tickets are $30.
Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta will host a Royal Wedding Tea on Friday, April 29 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. with live coverage of the event in the lounge. There are two options for this royal event: The Royal Wedding Tea ($32) and the Royal Wedding Celebration Tea ($42), which includes a glass of Louis Roederer Champagne. Either way you’ll enjoy a selection of tea sandwiches with English favorites like cucumber, egg salad and curried chicken salad plus sweet treats like lemon tea cake, berry tart, poppy seed tea cookie and chocolate-covered strawberry. Just make the Queen proud and, whether you’re sipping from a tea cup or stemmed flute, raise your glass with pinkies out!
Loews Atlanta Hotel is prepared to treat guests like royalty with the “Royal Wedding Package,” available April 28-30. With rates starting at $285, enjoy two-night deluxe accommodations, wedding cake amenity and wedding favor upon check-in, a wake-up call the morning of the wedding—to ensure you don’t miss a minute of TV coverage—and traditional English breakfast delivered to your room with a champagne toast to enjoy during the nuptials.
