Kelsea Ballerini Says “Yes” to the Dress and Discusses Wedding Plans

Wedding bells will be ringing for Kelsea Ballerini and fiancé Morgan Evans soon enough, but before the No. 1 singer-songwriter can walk down the aisle, she needed to check one very important item off her list — a dress.

The couple was engaged on Christmas, but Ballerini has been too busy to really think about wedding plans. However, she has a bunch of friends and family members who are willing to help her bare the heavy load. Ballerini spoke with PEOPLE around the time of the proposal about getting affairs in order to say “I do.”

I still haven’t even thought about it. This year’s so hectic with music that, I don’t know, I don’t think it’ll be a big priority for us quite yet.

Fast forward a few months and the outlook has changed at the hands of those loved ones who won’t let this special time in Ballerini’s life go uncelebrated. Her mom and some of her closest girlfriends surprised her with a dress fitting last week, ultimately turning into a toast to commemorate the country music star saying “yes” to her dress.

Aside from knowing the dress is picked out, we have gathered that the wedding will take place some time in 2017. She also told E! News that she and Evans are going the non-traditional route when it comes to their special day.

The whole wedding will be pretty untraditional so I think that having a long, white dress is the only traditional part we will have.

We can’t wait to hear and see more details of the wedding between this country music rising legend and her Australian turned Tennessean musical beau.
