Because one day of fairy tale wedding just wasn't enough, Princess Eugenie and her new husband, Jack Brooksbank, have spread their reception out over two days. While the first part of the celebrations were held on the wedding night with an intimate party at the Royal Lodge, that was only the beginning. On October 13, the couple will be keeping things going with a playful day including a fun fair on the grounds of Eugenie's childhood home.

The property, which was originally constructed in 1662 and was the long-time residence of the Queen Mother, is the current home of Prince Andrew and Fergie (the couple legally separated in 1992 and officially divorced in 1996 but continue to live together) making these celebrations about as close as the royal family comes to hosting a backyard reception. While the wedding night party was a glitzy, celeb-filled affair, the next day's event promises to be more casual if not exactly low key.

Taking a page out of Victoria and David Beckham's book, the happy couple invited guests back this afternoon for a "festival and funfair" themed party organized by Bentleys Entertainment, a party-planning firm founded by Peregrine Armstrong-Jones, half-brother of the late Earl of Snowdon who was once married to Princess Margaret. Bentleys has also helped put together Peter Phillips and Autumn Kelly's 2008 celebration and Zara and Mike Tindall's 2011 wedding.

“After the more formal celebration [of Eugenie’s wedding] at Windsor Castle on Friday, the Saturday bash will be a relaxed party,” a source told The Times. “There will be dodgems and funfair rides, coconut shies, lots of food stalls, loads of cocktails, bloody Marys for the hangovers and a festival vibe.” Rumor has it that as many as 500 guests were invited to the second day of festivities, likely including Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, and Cara Delevingne who all attended the nuptials yesterday.
