Last year, the wedding of the year (and century) was the marriage of Kate Middleton to Prince William. I was one of the people who woke up at 4:30am to attend a live viewing at the local library and watch in excitement as a beloved young couple exchanged vows. It was as if Kate and Will were America’s royal couple too!
Well this year we have another Royal Wedding to attend and in some ways I feel like a proud toy mommy. This is your official invite to attend the My Little Pony Royal Wedding of Princess Cadance and Shining Armor. That’s correct, a My Little Pony wedding…over 30 years in the making! The big event will happen during a very special two-episode presentation of The Hub Network‘s animated hit series “My Little Pony Friendship is Magic,” Saturday, April 21 (1-2 p.m. ET). Two half-hour, back-to-back episodes will culminate with a spectacular wedding of beloved characters that have a timeless appeal to generation of children. (Check local listings at HubWorld.com)
To get in the spirit before the big moment on April 21st, visit the mini-site which features six all-new, interactive, wedding-themed games based on each of the show’s beloved primary characters as well as a downloadable “viewing party pack” that includes printable party invitations, wedding hats, coloring pages and stickers.
And as part of the celebration of the episode, TV actress/author, wedding aficionado — and mom — Tori Spelling (“Beverly Hills 90210,” “Tori & Dean: sTORIbook Weddings”) will play hostess of the mostess during the event. Follow live tweets from the big day at @ModernMom, the site started by model, actress, entrepreneur, and ultimate Modern Mom, Brooke Burke.
We also want to give you a wedding favor just for sharing the excitement with us! The Hub has offered one lucky reader a commemorative Royal Wedding silver compact. We know how nice it is to have a mirror available for quick touch-ups, but it could also make a memorable addition to your Fancy Girl’s make believe makeup kit. (I know mine would love to pretend to put on her “makeup” with it!). To enter to win, simply “like” us on Facebook or Twitter (or both for an extra entry!) or if you already do both, tell us in the comments section. For even more additional entries send a tweet or FB post about the giveaway and tag us so we see it!
