Wedding Wednesday: Rehearsal Dinner

Welcome to my fifth and final installment of Wedding Wednesday where I've styled an outfit for the Rehearsal Dinner. Continuing with the white theme, I chose a sleek white dress that's a perfect canvas for fun accessories. For our rehearsal dinner, we decided to have a very casual affair at my parents' home but what I love about this look is how easy it is to dress up (as I did below) or dress it down with minimal jewellery and cute flat sandals.

We had our rehearsal ceremony and dinner two days before our wedding. It was the first time both sides of the families met so I was a bit anxious but I remember thinking, "Oh my god we are so close to getting married!" Going through the ceremony and seeing my husband-to-be's family as well as my own standing off to the side as our lovely minister walked us through everything was a little surreal. I was practising how to walk down an aisle and where to hold my bouquet - I was thisclose to getting married! Anyway, the wine was poured, the food was served, and our rehearsal was better than I could have hoped.

For any brides-to-be who have been following along with this series, I hope I was able to help or inspire you a bit as you go through the planning stage and get ready for all your pre-wedding events. To my other lovely readers, I hope you've enjoyed my first blogging series on The Lifestyle Project and getting a little peek into my wedding.
