Teresa Giudice shares glimpse of rehearsal dinner before wedding

Teresa Giudice will soon be walking down the aisle, as the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star is set to wed Luis Ruelas Saturday evening.

Hours before the ceremony, Giudice, 50, has shared a sneak peek at her Friday night rehearsal dinner, posting snaps and a video clip of a gorgeous table scape to her Instagram stories.

Taking place at The Highlawn in West Orange, N.J., the elegant atmosphere was dimly lit and featured room for several guests to be seated at the tastefully decorated table.

White candles were placed atop a white runner down the center of the table between small vases filled with pink flowers. The glass table wear featured gold accents and every plate was adorned with a thank you note from the betrothed couple.


The celebratory dinner comes two days after Giudice’s bridal shower and one night after the reality star and her soon-to-be husband had a shared bachelor/bachelorette party filled with laughs and belly dancers.

Giudice and Ruelas, 48, got engaged in October 2021. He popped the question one year after she finalized her divorce from Joe Giudice, with whom she shares four daughters: Gia, 21, Gabriella, 17, Milania, 16, and Audriana, 12.

While the couple has been surrounded by loved ones as they celebrate their union, it’s been reported that Giudice’s brother, Joe Gorga, will not attend his only sister’s wedding. His wife, “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Melissa Gorga, will also not be a guest at the event, despite being invited.
