BACHELORETTE & SHOWER...
Well ladies...its all over. Bach party and shower came and went in the blink of an eye. I can't believe its over and now the next step is marriage!!!
Friday- I went to the salon to have a hair & makeup trial. I figured the day of the bach party would be a good time to do it so I was all done up to go out. Well my hair came out nothing like the picture. It ended up just being a half up hair do with a poofy front. Not what I was looking for. Same with the makeup. I wanted kinda a shimmery smokey eye...but the girl used too much silver! It was pretty intense and definitely not a good wedding look. I hate telling someone I don't like it and it was getting late and I needed to get ready to go...so I just stuck with it.
For the bach party we did painting with a twist. It was a lot of fun and definitely something I would do again. Afterwards we hit a couple local bars and I surprisingly lasted til almost 2!
The Shower turned out beautifully! My girlfriends really did an awesome job. The centerpieces were glittery spray painted wine bottles with peacock feathers and balloons. I brought the bottles and everything home bc im hoping they hold up to take to Mexico with me. I would love to use them during cocktail hour!
Anyway, I am flying high and happy. I was a great weekend surrounded by friends and family. Its so rare that we get to see most of the people let alone have them all in one place.
Some reviews: Used rent the runway for my bach party dress. It was delivered Wednesday and came beautifully packaged and with a back up size. The dress colors were beautiful and totally fit the peacock theme. Wasn't 100% on the fit but it was good enough. I also ordered a Versace that was supposed to be delivered Friday night. several other packages were left on my doorstep that night...but not the most important!!! and worst of all UPS doesn't deliver on the weekends!!! I didn't realize this til 6pm Saturday night...so I had to run out and find something else. The back up dress actually looked nice...but I was still disappointed bc I had this whole Audrey Hepburn look in my head.
HoneymoonWishes.Com- we used this instead of a traditional registry. Out of all the people invited/came to the shower, only 3 actually used it. Everyone else brought cards with checks. I guess people didn't want to show up with out something? I dunno...either way we got what we needed- money to put towards the wedding & I feel like we did it in a nice way.
