One of my favorite pals, the beautiful Mallory, seen in the image below with the mustard top, is going to be her best friend's maid-of-honor in October and she is pretty much planning the entire thing. Mal is so creative and super organized so it only makes sense to have her as your wedding consultant.
Mal is also super detail-oriented and after spending some time with her and the future bride I deduced that this wedding is going to kick ass! As a joke, I told Mal that I was gonna pick up a stranger on the train and ask him to marry me just so she could plan an equally kick-ass wedding for me. Yesterday morning I received an e-mail from her and she included her plans for a wedding that she thinks would suit me well. Hilarious! The best part is that I would totally dig all of this at any event of mine, it truly fits my personality.
A lot of these are Chicago inside jokes such as the hot dog and corn (Mexican elote) as food, the dress being a Chicago Bulls jersey and the budget being a Jewel (one of our prominent supermarkets) preferred card.
