Whew! I am exhausted from all the wedding festivities this weekend. To be honest with you, I am tired of eating, drinking, talking, and wearing heels. This week I plan on pampering myself and going total introvert. The spa is calling my name. Even though I am tired, I had a wonderful weekend. It is such a joy to get to spend time with family and friends, many who I only see at events such as these. I also had the opportunity to make new friends. So, today I want to share with you the Rehearsal Dinner.
What I Wore To Rehearsal Dinner
Okay, I was having a fat day! You know the feeling when you are bloated and nothing seems to look good. Lucky for me, I have amassed a collection of black dresses. If all else fails, pull out the LBD (little black dress) or for me, the roomy black dress. I chose to wear this cold shoulder with flair sleeves black dress from Lauren Ralph Lauren. This is one of those dresses you find and buy in every color. I have it in hot pink, navy, black, and red. I like it because it has drama up top (you know I am the drama queen) and it loose and flowy at the bottom to hide a multitude of sins. To keep panty lines from showing, I wore my Soma Smoothing Shorts. Because I have worn them so much this year, they are actually stretched out (which was good for today)and I will need to buy some more before next week.
Necklace By Kendra Scott
I went thru several necklaces before deciding on this one, the Kendra Scott Harlow Necklace. Kendra Scott jewelry is FABULOUS. I bought this necklace this winter on a huge sale. Matter a fact, I bought this necklace in several colors. You can find many knock-off Kendra Scott styles. Love this tone on tone look of this. Fashionable but elegant, not too in your face. With everything going on in this dress, it did not need a necklace, but this necklace took it from great to WOW.
Earrings From Baublebar
Gentle Souls Shoes For Comfort And Style
After several days on my feet, I needed a break. So for the rehearsal dinner, I chose to wear this super comfortable wedge platform shoes from Juniper Berry Platform Sandal Gentle Souls. Not only did they look cute, but they were super comfortable the entire evening.
Here are some pics from the Rehearsal Dinner. The venue was The Club on top of Red Mountain in Birmingham. The view of the city below is spectacular.

Lots more wedding stuff coming up as my son Matt get’s married next weekend. I have to admit, I am kinda getting good at this. Love celebrating the start of new lives and sweet beginnings.
