Princess Beatrice & Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi's Wedding After-Party Sounds So Cozy
I'm sorry in advance for the overwhelming amount of FOMO you may be feeling after reading this, but Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi's wedding after-party sounds so freaking adorable. ICYMI: Beatrice and Edoardo surprised the world by saying "I do" in a secret ceremony on July 17. The nuptials were extremely small, but that reportedly didn't stop the couple from celebrating after saying "I do." According to People, Edoardo and Beatrice reportedly upped the guest list from 20 people at the wedding to closer to 30 at the after-party.
While having a full-on party is never really a good idea during a pandemic, it sounds like the couple tried their best to stay in accordance with social distancing practices. For starters, People claims the couple kept the festivities outdoors on the "grounds of the Royal Lodge, the shared home of Beatrice's parents who divorced in 1996."
It may have been a bigger party, but it seems like they were at least outside and hopefully staying six feet apart. “A few more people were there than the wedding, but it was still very small and intimate," a source reportedly told People. "It was all outdoors and under a tent with the same matching floral design and theme as the wedding."
They also kept things extra safe by following along with the UK ban on live music during the party, and instead, reportedly opted for streaming music from an iPhone, low-key kickback style. (Celebs! They're just like us!) That being said, they still kept some classic wedding traditions. According to People, Beatrice's dad Prince Andrew, Edoardo, and his stepbrother all reportedly gave toasts.
In addition to seemingly trying their best to keep the risk of contracting COVID-19 at a minimum, Edoardo and Beatrice also reportedly created "special 'glamping' pods" so their guests could safely party without worrying about driving home. (And now, I am officially jealous.) Sounds like the two managed to make their day as special as they possibly could, considering the extremely stressful circumstances. Here's hoping the happy couple has a lifetime of celebrations together and lavish parties ahead!
