Well this may be one way to make it a day your wedding guests won’t ever forget. If you’re looking to get married in the near future, there’s one venue you may want to look into booking: Kensington Palace.
According to the palace’s site, couples can now say their “I dos” in the same place that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have lived, as well as where Prince William and Kate Middleton currently reside with their children, George, Princess Charlotte and Louis. So there’s clearly royalty all around. But here are the details: if you’re aiming to have 150 guests or less, you will be able to host your ceremony in the apartments. More than 150 guests and you can instead find yourself in the orangery, which it can hold up to 1,000 folks. You know, for those that enjoy inviting everyone and their mom.
If that doesn’t reel you in yet, up to 300 of your guests will be able to attend the reception if you book the Kensington Palace Pavilion — anything to make all your friends and family feel like non-peasants for the day. Couples are only able to book the palace for their wedding on certain days of the year, and according to E! it may cost up to $23,000 to grab the location for the day on a weekend. So yes, it won’t come cheap. Although for that price you’ll get a wedding planner, a taxi service, some daytime cleaning, on-site security and even a private entrance to Kensington Palace for all your guests. Even the ones you don’t really like.
Couples who decide to call the Orangery their party spot for the day will have to fork over about $15,800 for the evening.
All you lovebirds may want to start saving up now if this is the venue for you.
