The wedding dress will undoubtedly consume most of your time, budget and worry, but it is far from the only bride-to-be ensemble you need to plan for. You’re in the spotlight now and wedding-related events, from showers to bridesmaids lunches, are about to fill your calendar. So ladies, get your closets ready!
Start with rehearsal dinner wardrobe, but don’t make it more difficult than it needs to be.
Shop online or hit your favorite stores at the mall. You don’t need to go overboard. Heck, I picked up my rehearsal dinner dress at H&M for under $50! I got rave reviews on the silky blue dress because it fit well, it was a great color and it was my style. When you’re comfortable and confident it shows, regardless of how much or how little you spent.
