First, my apologies on the lack of posting thus far this week. Normally, I like to write and schedule my posts on my lunch hour, but this week I have barely taken a lunch hour due to some stressful situations at work. Things have slowed down a bit now, thankfully!!
This weekend, Dr. Groomy and I headed to Chicago to visit some friends of ours who are also getting married this year. The reason for our trip was two-fold, however—Jill, one half of the couple we went to visit, was having her bridal shower! It was really fun to attend and so I thought I would share some pics (with her permission, of course!).
The shower was held at Marcello’s Father & Son, in Lincoln Park, and was hosted by the groom’s sisters, mother, and aunt. It was a great location—we were in a little sunroom that was perfectly appointed for a party like this, with grapevines and white Christmas lights tastefully decorating the room. The set-up was gorgeous as well, with white tablecloths and napkins, and beautiful centerpieces that were hand-made by the groom’s sister!
We started the shower with some mingling and a glass of wine, and then sat down to lunch.
Lunch was an absolutely delicious family-style Italian meal.
Everything was delicious…and then, there was cake!
After we had cake and coffee, it was time for gifts.
Jill got some really cool items, and I got some great ideas for our own registry! After that, the shower wrapped up while we all sat around and visited some more. All in all, it was a very fun time. Here I am with the bride:
Congratulations, Jill and Noah! Dr. Groomy and I are so excited to celebrate with you at your wedding in June.
Have you had the pleasure of attending any bridal showers lately?
