Dinner before "I do!" Jamie Lynn Spears and her fiance Jamie Watson celebrated with a family dinner on Thursday, March 13 just one day before tying the knot. The couple of four years spent the evening at Antoine's restaurant in the French Quarter in New Orleans, Louisiana.
There was a dinner for family and friends, an insider tells Us Weekly. The couple's loved ones dressed up for the special occasion, and arrived in limos with security at 6 p.m.
Spears, 22, wore a tight-fitting white dress with an ivory coat for the outing, and rocked blonde hair extensions. Big sister Britney Spears and boyfriend David Lucado, parents Lynn and Jamie, and brother Bryan were all in attendance. The aspiring country singer's 5-year-old daughter Maddie, whom she had with ex Casey Aldridge, also joined in on the fun with her cousins, Britney's sons Sean, 8, and Jayden, 7.
"The kids were all so excited to see each other and be there. They were having fun sucking on lollipops and running around," the insider adds to Us. "It was a fancy restaurant but they tried to keep it very low-key."
While Jamie wore white, Britney, 32, went for a a black dress and matching jacket. "Britney seemed very happy with her boyfriend and was holding his hand and kissing him," the source adds. As for the soon-to-be bride and groom, "Jamie Lynn and Jamie were very mellow and spent most of the evening chatting with friends."
As previously reported, Spears and Watson, 31, obtained their marriage license on March 5 from Tangipahoa Parish Clerk of Court in Louisiana. They are set to tie the knot (today!) on Friday, March 14.
