Tevilla for a kallah

Question:

Can a Kallah before her wedding be tovel during the day of the seventh day of shiva nekiyim?
Thanks so much!

Answer:

There is controversy about it, and the minhag is to be lenient with this, if the chuppah and yichud will not be during the day. Practicality though this should be discussed with one’s personal rov.

Best wishes
