The One Thing I Forgot to Bring for Getting Ready On My Wedding Day
As with any wedding, before I got married, there was a miles-long list of things to do. I was lucky enough to have wedding planners and an incredibly supportive and organized mom to help tackle each task, but looking back on the wedding week, there is only one thing that I left off. Luckily, it wasn't a make-or-break situation. Even though I was gifted a beautiful robe to wear while I got ready for the big day, I didn't bring along a pair of slippers! This might sound silly, but hear me out: For those must-take getting ready photos, my getup felt incomplete. Bare feet weren't necessarily the cutest complement to my ivory robe and professionally done hair and makeup. Plus, I didn't want to be chilly all morning. I stole my mom's slippers for the day (thank you and sorry, Mom!), but I wish I'd thought ahead to treat myself to a new, cute pair of house shoes for my wedding day. When my sister-in-law got engaged, I immediately ordered a fluffy pair of slippers to be sure she wouldn't get cold feet on her wedding day. Pun very much intended.
