Princess Eugenie’s Royal Wedding Weekend Reportedly Includes a Reception and a Next-Day Festival

On Friday, October 12, Queen Elizabeth II’s granddaughter Princess Eugenie married Jack Brooksbank in a wedding at St. George’s Chapel, with plenty of celebrities and royal family members in attendance to celebrate the union. The ceremony was beautiful and romantic, but it was just the beginning of the festivities. Afterward, the couple and their guests moved on to a lavish reception, which will be followed tomorrow by even more wedding weekend activities.


Following their carriage procession through the streets of Windsor on Friday — for which they chose the Scottish State Coach — the newlyweds joined their friends and family at a lunch reception hosted by Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle.

Guests including Demi Moore and Ellie Goulding listened to speeches from the wedding party and Princess Eugenie’s father, Prince Andrew, while enjoying a taste of the couple’s custom wedding cake. Designed by London baker Sophie Cabot, the autumn-themed creation featured a red velvet and chocolate cake covered with orange, red, yellow, and green leaves made of sugar. On the bottom layer of the cake, the couple’s initials were embossed in gold letters.

After the reception, the couple swapped their horse-drawn carriage for a super sleek Aston Martin DB10, which was designed and engineered in the UK for the James Bond film Spectre. According to People, their next stop was a black-tie evening reception at the Royal Lodge, the residence that Prince Andrew and ex-wife Sarah Ferguson share in Windsor.

But the fun doesn’t end there. On Saturday, guests will enjoy an afternoon festival-like event that will feature a fairground and food stalls. According to People, the event was put together by Bentleys Entertainment, which is the same company Victoria and David Beckham used when they were married in an extravagant wedding back in 1999.

What would your dream wedding reception include? Let us know @BritandCo!

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
