Where in Toronto Will you view the Royal Wedding? - 4 more days!


4 more days to go until Prince William weds his Princess!
There is so much hype, borderline overkill, about the Royal Wedding; however, how can you help not get into the vibe? The excitement is contagious and I can't help but get into nervous Planner mode for this occasion.

I know what you're thinking: 'why get into planner mode when I'm not Kate and Will's planner?'; well, because my obligation is to my current & soon-to-be WeDDings Jubilee Planning Couples. If you are like many of others in the GTA, you are either getting up early, tea in hand to watch at home alone, hosting a breakfast tea party or trying to find a great place to be a 'virtual' guest at Westminster Abbey.


Following is a list of the GTA's top spots to view this epic event. Hope to spot you around town with your fancy hat on:)

Hi there,
Thanks for mentioning the Royal High Tea Event at T-Buds Uptown Tea Lounge at 3343 Yonge Street (Yonge & Lawrence area). The seating (1:00 pm to 3:00 pm) is sold out! A second seating is now open (and filling up quickly!!!!) from 4:00 pm to 6:00. A wonderful way to celebrate with friends! Please call 647-352-3624 for reservations.

Indeed the Will & Kate "cut-out" is already in place for photos! So, bring your cameras and take your commemorative photos!
Please consider a donation to The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada...because wishes do come true...just ask Kate!

Cheers!
Sonya
