I didn’t plan what I was going to wear for the rehearsal dinner prior to my wedding day, and I was TOO tired to think about it when our day got close. In the end, I disliked what I was wearing. I was cold and uncomfortable not the way I was hoping it would be the night before my wedding day. So here’s another tip for all of you brides out there: Make sure to pack everything a month or so before your wedding day. And check out these designer styles for a bit of inspiration.
