We also asked recently engaged Favi Valdez from Richmond what she thinks she’ll want on her wedding day, and we love her answer! “I think you should have something that reminds you of your significant other,” Favi says. Consider adding your favorite picture of the two of you to the bag to look at when you’re feeling nervous.
