It's been a whirlwind couple of days in the Windy City for bride-to-be Sherri Shepherd.

The 44-year-old View cohost spent Thursday afternoon taking wedding portraits with her future husband Lamar Sally at Navy Pier in Chicago. Though she was dressed in a white gown, it won't be the one she wears when she walks down the aisle Saturday.

"Just put that on to do personal shots with Sal," Shepherd tweeted. "You think I'd let him see it so soon?"

The following night, the future spouses were joined by Elisabeth Hasselback, ESPN's Tim Hasselback, Community's Yvette Nicole Brown and Clean House's Niecy Nash for dinner at P.F. Chang's.

Later that evening, Shepherd was sitting in her hotel room "when all of a sudden my bridesmaids burst into the room with their own footed pajamas."

"Just had the most amazing bachelorette party with my bridesmaids," Shepherd tweeted hours later. "Much food, laughter and love in this room. Can't wait to open my gifts!"
