The week of our wedding started off to a somewhat crazy start. Because I was going to be gone for so long with the wedding/honeymoon, my advisor and I agreed to get a paper that we had been in the process of writing submitted before I left. I’ll let you decide how much of this idea was mine and how much of it was my advisor’s.
With some stressful and sleepless nights, we submitted the paper Wednesday night and I was home free. Thank goodness I had mostly finished all of the wedding related stuff early because I honestly did not have the time to think about the wedding for the two weeks leading up to the wedding. Though I will say, it was a great way to distract myself from having nerves about the wedding itself.
Thursday was the day of my bachelorette party. Because all of my girls live around the country, it made the most sense to have the bachelorette party the same weekend as the wedding itself.
I didn’t know what my girls were planning, but my only request was that I didn’t want to wear a penis on my head.
Luckily my girls planned a really awesome and low key night. I know this probably isn’t everyone’s idea of a great bachelorette party, but I really enjoyed it and it’s very me.
(I sidetrack now with a little sidenote: I spent hours and hours searching for the perfect little white dress for this event, for the weather to laugh in my face. It was 50 degrees with torrential downpours in JUNE, what? aka not happening. So sad.)
So we started the afternoon at a paint your own pottery studio.
While my girls so carefully stenciled and designed their pottery, I kind of just winged it. Do you like the little bee that sits on top? He is a little homage to you fine folks.
After painting, we went to Ten Tables, which is a lovely fancy and delicious restaurant near Harvard Square.
I think this picture summarizes the night. Good food, good wine, good friends. What else do you need? It was soooo nice to see everyone since we sadly don’t get together often enough.
I felt absolutely out of place with my blingy gigantic ring and tiara, but it was a blast. We had thought the ring was broken since it didn’t initially turn on, but during the middle of dinner, it started flashing like crazy.
After dinner, we went to Russell House Tavern and got a few drinks. There, my girls donned some tiny glittery cowboy hats.
I leave you with this last picture. Even in it’s full blurry form, it is one of my favorite pictures we took that night. It’s one of those silly, goofy little moments, but I so vividly remember being so completely and utterly happy just being in the moment.
Anyone else have a very low key bachelorette party?
