A Chicago Bridal Shower and Bachelorette Party

Just got back from a whirlwind trip to Chicago to celebrate my college roommate's bridal shower and bachelorette party.  I'm super exhausted but the fun was totally worth it!

Saturday afternoon: the shower

Jen's shower was a lovely little outdoor shin-dig.  Aren't the pom poms and lanterns cute?! I love the color scheme!

Pretty girls and delicious food were abundant.

We played some fun games too.  Our TP dress was complete with a mermaid skirt and sweetheart neckline. 

Also, we won at "First Date" Scattegories using the letter "J" (for Jen.) How could we not win with an SLP on our team?!

The happy couple.  Tom was there for most of the shower.  I've never heard of the guy attending an all lady shower (a couple's shower, yes.)  Maybe it's a Chicago thing?!

Members of 109 E. John Street!  Those dark circles under my eyes-those would be from my 3:30 AM wake-up that morning.

The wedding party-didn't Patty do a great job with the "Bride to Be" streamer?! So cute!

Saturday night: bachelorette party

Jen's corsage for the evening ;0)

The bride, all decked out in her bachelorette finest.

Here's to a great night!

The bachelorette crew, all dressed up and ready to go.

These boys LOVED Jen.  Now they'll probably be having dreams about her until school starts.

Dancing the night away.

I had a great time hanging out with my old roomies!  It's crazy to think about how long it's been since we lived together.  4 years. 

Wow it feels like yesterday.  Now we're all about to be old married ladies.  Congrats Jen!

  1. Planning a bridal shower is difficult but it is totally worth the work! We found a list of 99 scavenger hunt topics and posted the topics on the back of t-shirts which was the most remarkable evening! We found tons of terrific ideas on this web-site if you're looking to save energy…
