PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) -- The British royal wedding, featuring Prince Harry and American Hollywood actress Meghan Markle, will be held Saturday. If you can't make it to London, there are some local places where you can celebrate the nuptials.

Debbie Heth, with a Taste of Britain in Wayne, Delaware County says their royal watch party starts at 7 a.m. 

"We'll have a breakfast tea and start with some mimosas," she said. "We're serving a lemon and elderflower cupcake as part of our afternoon tea service in honor of Harry and Meghan's wedding cake flavors."

Over in Paoli, Amy Fiedler-Dluhy with Van Cleve Pavillion, says they're also starting at 7 o'clock Saturday morning. They've invited brides who bought dresses at the store to come watch the royal wedding with their daughters.

"They were asked to wear either pajamas and tiaras or their wedding finest," she said. "We will be having our middle room set up like a wedding ceremony with chairs and we're going to be watching it on a 60-inch screen TV from start to finish."

That watch party is a fundraiser:

"We're also taking donations of business attire for Wings For Success in Frasier," Fiedler-Dluhy explained.

Meanwhile, the party at Fairmount's London Grill starts at 11 a.m.

"We're encouraging people to wear hats and also bring corgis...."It'll be kind of after the actual royal wedding, but we'll just have it on loop all day."

And select movie theaters are showing the wedding at 10 a.m. Ray Nutt CEO of Fathom Events says locations include Somerdale, King of Prussia and Neshaminy.

"You're gonna get behind the scenes stuff, see everything on the 40-foot screen," Nutt said. "It'll last probably about two-and-a-half to three hours."
