Rehearsal Dinner Inspo + Wedding Wednesday Updates

10:59:00 AM

Happy #WeddingWednesday! It's the second to last Wednesday before our wedding and I am one busy worker bee this week! Thought I'd take a minute to share some updates on our checklist!

It is so funny that throughout our year of planning, so much on this list has changed or evolved into something else. Planning a wedding is no joke y'all! I applaud anyone who does it and tries to do it on their own! Anyways we are really just working on tying loose ends this week and finalizing our timeline!

If all the below stuff bores you, I put together a little rehearsal dinner outfit inspiration. Now that I own way too many ivory and white pieces, thought I'd share some of my favorite styles out there now! And for all my non-traditional brides, rompers and jumpsuits are all the rage!
PS. All of the below pieces are under $160!

1. 2. 3.
4. 5. 6.
