Our Wedding: Rehearsal Dress

On me:
ASOS bow back dress (similar)
Zara heels (similar)
On him:
Shipley & Halmos blazer and shirt
Theory pants
John Varvatos oxfords

This is the outfit I wore for our wedding rehearsal and dinner after on the rooftop of Terra Plata (rehearsal dinner post to come) over a month ago. Yes, I'm a little behind on these posts but they're coming along! With a busy-print dress, I kept the hair clean in a donut bun, wore nude pumps, and donned minimal jewelry: an intricate rose gold necklace gifted from my sister's husband's mother. So sweet! The cute paper flower bouquet was made by my bridesmaids and new sister-in-law who collected all the tissue paper and ribbons from bridal shower gifts.

We're coming up on our one month of marriage! Look out for our last engagement photo set (one and two here) and rehearsal dinner photos soon.
