The text on the Groupon April Fools day Royal Wedding deal states:

'Family weddings can be a tedious affair, putting up with Uncle Barry's distasteful jokes, Grandma's dodgy dancing and the Maid of Honour's flirtatious advances. Abandon your own family for someone else's with today's Groupon: two tickets to the Royal Wedding on 29th April for £8.

William (Wills) and Kate Middleton (Kate) will be joined in holy matrimony in the luxurious surroundings of Westminster Abbey. Share in the special day of our future King and Queen by throwing Chinese grains at them. After the ceremony, you and your date will gain entry to the after-party in a marquee/tent at Buckingham Palace. Expect cake-cutting, a special best man's speech written by Jimmy Carr, and music from DJ Hazbo (Harry) with classics such as ABBA and Status Quo.'

With the reviews section of the Groupon Royal Wedding offer stating:

'Despite attracting over one million visitors each year, reviews of Westminster Abbey have been polarised, with many allegedly disappointed by Prince Philip's disorganised tour management. Buckingham Palace has also come under scrutiny from the public, who claim television and photographic depictions are better than the real thing. Despite this, many have commented on The Queen's excellent hosting skills, as well as noting Prince Harry's ability to get the party started. Prince William's status as a national treasure is greater than ever, backed up by 10,000 followers on Twitter!'

Entertaining and I'm sure most people will get the joke, but maybe should have a more prominent April Fool disclaimer?

Too bad I missed this deal! I could have brought my wedding guitarist buddies with me into the event. :-D
