Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp 6am - 10am
New research suggests that households will spend an average of £267 celebrating the Royal wedding.
The findings show food and drink are expected to be the main areas of spending to commemorate the event, with a combined average spend of £126.
However travel (£41) new outfits (£42) and decorations (£29) are also set to be other areas where people will be paying out:
Over two thirds (66%), have only started making plans for the event in the last two weeks. The research also shows that the most popular celebration plan is to hold a barbeque (27%).
However, a quarter of people are planning to mark the occasion by simply gathering round a TV (26%) and just under a fifth (16%) looking to visit a restaurant or pub.
Just over one in ten people planning celebrations are looking to hold a street party (13%), and one in twenty (6%) are hoping to attend an organised event.
