Top 10 // Picnic Parties

Maybe it's not the most practical wedding trend, but boy am I swooning over this low table, picnic dinner party situation that's happening right now.  Probably better suited for an intimate gathering, this look might be perfect for your rehearsal dinner or bridal brunch.  Practical or not, the picnic party is so dreamy.
