We just celebrated my best friends bachelorette party in Chicago. As co-Maid of Honor we were able to put together a really REALLY good time. This first post is just going to highlight all the fun we had and then I would like to share some really great ideas we came up with to make this a special weekend!
We started our morning at 8 am when we jumped on the Mega Bus in Detroit, Michigan. The ride would take about 5 1/2 hours to arrive in Chicago.
We definitely made the most of the semi long bus ride. We handed out gift bags and these printed coozies were one of our party gifts. We played many games which made the time fly. I will explain the games in my next post. They were very funny and got the whole group involved.
After we checked into our Hotel, the Westin on Mich Ave, had a coffee, stopped at the Cheesecake Factory for lunch and then we got our matching tanks tops on to hit up the city. If you are wondering what they say… “One Last Ride for the Bride.” Yes, that is a mustache. Now, I know what you are thinking. But they were hilarious and we only had one girl bashful to wear it.
The next morning came fast and we got dolled up to hit the beach. We took a walk down Lake Shore drive for about a mile. It was a gorgeous day and people were everywhere. ( we did jump off that sea wall at the end of the day)
Of course we have to stop for Pictures! Did you notice our matching sun glasses?
We finally made our way to Castaways. At first we were a little uneasy at the level of DRUNK people already were at noon. It only took an hour before we joined the party and had a killer time!
Before we left we had to jump in the water. By this time we were definitely not sober so a photo shoot on the beach was an amazing idea!
On our way back we thought it was the perfect time for another one of these!
After the beach party we had only a few hours to get ready, do gifts and catch our limo. We gave the girls 1 hours to get ready. There was a lot pizza eaten and a lot of jumping on the beds in that hour. ha
Finally 8:45 rolled around and our limo was waiting outside for us.
The next morning came very quickly again as we had to be at the bus stop at 10:30. The bus ride home was a little more tame. We laughed a lot, shared our pictures and had a few naps. It literally took me the whole week to recover!
