There is a reason why Raleigh businesses may not be celebrating the royal wedding between Will and Kate as it airs this Friday. Is 4 am EST too early? Sir Walter Raleigh would agree but Wral would not.
Wral will air royal wedding live coverage beginning at 4 am EST on Friday morning. The royal wedding begins at 6 am EST after all the main wedding players arrive as scheduled.
On April 29, just days away, Prince William of Wales marries Catherine Middleton in a multimillion dollar royal event of their lifetime. A moment to remind many of the July 29, 1981 wedding vows between William’s father Charles, Prince of Wales, and his mother, Princess Diana. A royal wedding many have been daydreaming about ever since Princess Diana’s death. A wedding offering a little girl the imagination of top dollar decor dressed in security. A wedding where the prince kisses his bride from a balcony rather than during the ceremony.
According to the Church of England the royal couple is not going to play into hollywood as they reportedly shovel $34 million and more towards the royal non-hollywood hollywood touches. The Church of England defines the sentiment of “you may kiss the bride” loosely as if a fantasy created by hollywood in the US.
Will and Kate are scheduled to kiss from the swanky royal balcony at 8:25 EST after the wedding, just as Prince Charles and Princess Diana kissed in 1981. Maybe not hollywood but definitely storybook details.
Kiss or no kiss, at least the royal wedding offers a new donut and cake option!
Dunkin donuts shares the heart-shaped donut as their sister company, Baskin Robbins, offers a special cake in honoring the royal wedding. Decorating a cake with all the royal dressings is a nice addition. But if you wish to hold that party when Wral airs the royal wedding live – prepare for a breakfast bash.
Some Raleigh businesses are already taking advantage of the wedding in a royal way. But don’t get your hopes up without contacting the business to assure of such an event.
Raleigh makes top 10 locations to watch the royal wedding according to The Hot List. Thehotlist.com has placed North Hills Club of Raleigh as 5th top US location to celebrate the royal wedding.
There is something readers should know about number 5 on the royal wedding hot list.
According to North Hills Club, no one is aware of such an event being planned at their establishment. The hook, line, and potential stinker goes to the swing titles. The titles under certain locations lead to a brief overview at the top of the next page. Meaning, the title has nothing to do with the location when it comes to number 5 on that list.
Raleigh’s Magnolia Glen, an elderly home for people over 62-years-old, advertises royal wedding celebration week long events at their establishment. The catch? The events are for community residents only. So there you go. Magnolia Glen is not holding a special wedding event for anyone to attend outside of the senior living home. But if you are over 62 and would do anything to celebrate the royal wedding then Magnolia Glen may be for you!
Thinking about having a party with a couple of royal friends? Don’t forget to take note of royal blue when choosing a color theme – a color admired and most appreciated by the royal family. Cakes and biscuits or biscuit cakes are great traditional choices to honor the royal moment. William tends to love his biscuit cakes.
Fiona Cairns, the established cake decorator rumored to supply wedding cakes for the royal event, gets her hands dirty. Catch a photo of Fiona Cairns with her fellow cake decorators working on their biscuit cake masterpieces without wearing protective gloves (Telegraph). But this is America. Wear food-safe gloves when preparing cakes and royal treats for others.
On Friday expect some of Raleigh’s early birds to drag out of their nests before the rooster’s crow to witness the royal wedding live on Wral. As for the birds planning on ignoring their alarm clocks Thursday night, there are always those instant royal wedding replays all weekend long.
Congratulations Will and Kate!
