Wedding Wednesday: Chicago Bachelorette!

Wedding Wednesday

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

This past Saturday my Chicago girlfriends threw me a bachelorette party!
15 people came! It was so wonderful that all of them came out, especially since the weather was snowy and awful!

But you better believe I still wore heels.
*Mary tosses hair*

All I wanted was something low-key, not too expensive and fun, which was exactly what they did! Two of my girlfriends arranged for a little pizza and wine dinner followed by a couple of bars in Roscoe Village. I had never been out in Roscoe, so that was fun! The gals all got me presents, too! It was so unnecessary but so incredibly thoughtful!

And yes, some gifts made me blush!

Before I met up with the big group I did my nails and I got my hair blown out!
Blowtique was incredible. I couldn't believe how high my hair was.

My sister surprised me by "sending" a bottle of champagne to me (through Daniela!) at the salon, too!

Va Va Voom! 
I want to do this to my hair every day!

Here are a few other shots from the evening. I started our wedding hashtag that night as well: #AndrewMarriesMary!

One girlfriend took photos on her real camera - I can't wait to see those!!! She got a group shot that is definitely frame-worthy, I'm sure!

Let's just say I was hurting the next day. 
It was so so so so fun!!!

My sister also sent a toast. I teared up!
Here it is:

"Mary, you are loved
by so many it is true
but those with whom you raise a glass tonight
are the lucky Chicago ones that truly know you

So wishing you a fun-filled night
wishing I could also be there
but I'll raise one, too, from San Francisco
and join in toasting OUR MARE!!!"


I can't wait until my Pittsburgh shower and bachelorette!!!!!

How are you doing this week?

You look absolutely incredible! Looks like a great time. I'm heading out to a bachelorette party this weekend and we're going to a blow dry bar! I can't wait!

#1. I can't believe you had a bachelorette already! I still feel like we just got engaged. I can't believe you will be married in a month-ish. Crazy!

#2. I want your hair. It looked gorgeous!

#3. Please share the other pictures when you see them. Can't wait for that!

#4. Tee-hee-hee. Gifts made you blush! I love that!

Love your nails and the blow out! I have a birthday party this weekend and I was going to try out the new Dry Bar but they are full so maybe I'll check out Blowtique! So happy you had a great night!
