SO. Now that I have my camera back (YAY!), I can post about the wedding weekend! I had the pleasure of being one of Amy's Maids of Honor, and so bachelorette party planning fell into my hands.
We held the party at Amy's Escondido apartment the Thursday before the wedding, so we decked the place out when she was picking up her sister-in-law.
It was SO FUN! I etched some champagne glasses for the occasion with the first letter of each bachelorette's name, and picked up a bunch of tame bachelorette party decorations online (no man-member-shaped paraphernalia for this party!).giant confetti and pink ice gems from Oriental Trading Company. I also picked up sequin masquerade masks (which may or may not have made another appearance at our NYE party the next week!). The giant tinsel curtain was probably my favorite, so festive! it was 8x16 of pure bling; I'm totally going to get another one for the next party I throw. It's currently sold out in gold, but there are four other colors available!
Our second stop was Vin de Syrah, a wine and spirits parlor in San Diego's gaslamp district (about 20 minutes away).

The Shout House, a dueling piano bar! I don't know if you've ever been to a dueling piano bar (or if there is even one in your area), but if you have the option, definitely check it out. At the Shout House, their show is request driven so they played a mix of pop top-40 as well as old-school rock-and-roll. A few other randoms got thrown in there too, like hip-hop and a country song or two, and they also changed the words occasionally to make fun of a particular patron celebrating something. It was hilarious. We stayed under the radar to avoid mortifying our little bride ;) I didn't take any pics in there because it was SUUper dark, but it was absolutely fantastic!
Afterwards, we headed back to the apartment for a little lingerie shower and some Wii just dance ;) so fun!
Come back tomorrow for photos from the wedding day!
