Chelsea Clinton‘s wedding day is finally here -- and mother Hillary looks as if she’s loving every minute.

The secretary of State had a show-stopping moment Friday night in Rhinebeck, N.Y., as she and her husband, former President Clinton, arrived at the rehearsal dinner.

Preparations have been underway all week long for the buzzed-about nuptials, leading up to Saturday, when Chelsea will say ‘I do’ to longtime beau Marc Mezvinsky.

Hillary Clinton took a major departure from her usual pantsuit-and-pearls uniform, getting glam in a flowing green number with a statement necklace and dramatic makeup.
