Here’s Everything Kelsea Ballerini Would Tell Us About Her Wedding [Watch]
We know Kelsea Ballerini is set to marry fiancé Morgan Evans, but beyond that, she hasn't shared too much ... until now.
The "Yeah Boy" singer let a few details about her upcoming nuptials slip (yes, there will be an open bar), but kept much hidden during a chat with Taste of Country. The 23-year-old has set a date, and while we can confirm it's after her WE Fest appearance in August, that's about all we got as far as the "when."
“I’m not super traditional at all," Ballerini tells Taste of Country Nights, "so I feel like the more ways we can make it a non-traditional wedding we probably will.”
She will wear white, but Evans won't wear a tuxedo. Each of them will have five on their side of the bridal party, and while she hasn't done the inviting yet Ballerini says to expect two bridesmaids from the music industry, and three she knows from elsewhere. If you're wondering, she's not planning to ask friend Taylor Swift to stand up in the wedding. We had to ask!

Still unknown or undecided is the wedding song, if she'll marry in Tennessee (or America even) or Evans' homeland of Australia. The two lovers' parents haven't met yet — that won't happen until wedding week. As she plans all of this, Ballerini is working on finishing her new album. Of course we got a few details about that, too!
A new single will be revealed after "Yeah Boy" finishes its run up the country airplay charts. She's been playing "Roses" live and is very happy with the response, but don't assume that's going to be her next radio hit. Overall it will be very personal album. There's nothing like "Yeah Boy" on the follow-up to The First Time.
"I feel like the so album is so personal that I'm like actually a little anxious to put it out," she says. "There were songs that I was nervous to show my label, nervous to show my management ... but to see the way the people close to me that know me really well have responded to it makes me excited to get it out there."
This summer Ballerini will be opening up for Lady Antebellum. She says aside from the music, she's looking forward to spending quality time with good friend Hillary Scott.
