Royal Sleepover:
Take the Day Off


Kate and Will's wedding day has been declared an official holiday over in England, so Brits get to spend a work-free April 29th watching the Royal Wedding festivities. (Well, most of them, anyway.) But we're not as lucky over here in America. And if you're going to be staying up all night to throw your own Royal Sleepover and catch the Royal Wedding when it airs live in the wee hours of the morning, then you're not going to want to head into work Friday morning.

Here at, our editor-in-chief Julie obviously understands her staff's need to take the day off—but we're thinking your boss probably won't be as sympathetic. So Julie's drawn up an "official" excuse note that you can hand to your boss. (Hey, it's worth a try!) Download your excuse note here, and stay tuned for more ideas on how to throw your own Royal Sleepover. (And don't forget to visit our Royal Wedding page for more on Kate and Will's upcoming nuptials.)
