So excited to share with you guys a few snaps of what I wore to our rehearsal and dinner the night before our wedding. We rehearsed on the rooftop of the Riverview Room (where our ceremony was supposed to be), but we never got to do that walk on the day of our wedding. Mother Nature had different plans for our big day, and as you can probably tell from my hair in the last picture above, the wind, drizzling rain and humidity had started to kick in during the rehearsal. We crossed our fingers anyway and headed off to dinner. The setting of our rehearsal dinner could not have been more perfect for our families. We had the entire upstairs of Pier 424, including a balcony overlooking Bourbon Street with plenty of beads to throw. Let’s just say, everyone seemed to have a great time. The attire was really casual, but I didn’t care – it’s my party and I’ll wear sequins if I want to. From the minute I saw this Adrianna Papell dress months ago, I had to figure out something that I could wear it to, and the rehearsal dinner was perfect for it. The heels, however, did not last my entire walk to the restaurant, and I ended up ducking into a touristy store to buy some NOLA-themed flip flops. Again, it’s my party… All in all it was a great night, and we ended up partying until WAY late – something I’ll never regret because we were just having too much fun with everyone to leave. Our wedding party and guests pretty much filled up The Famous Door afterwards, and Eric and I eventually hopped onstage to dance along with the band. It was a night we’ll always remember and totally worth a little lost sleep. Stay tuned for a few more Wedding Wednesday posts coming up!
