Bridesmaids Summit! Part 2 - Shopping & Touring

After we nailed down the dresses, we were ready for a tasty bite to eat at Gloria's which is a Tex-Mex/Salvadorian restaurant. We were joined by Daddy Elephant who was awesome to handle a lunch with 7 women and pick up the tab.

Starting on the left side - Dad Elephant, Mama Elephant, me, BM Aggie & BM Cali, MOH Navy, BM Philly & Aunt Bunny (who I'm not really sure if she knew if the picture was being taken)

Lunch was great, and we finished it off with a round of Patron shots compliments of Aunt Bunny.

Since we had already decided on the BM dresses, we canceled the appointment with Alfred Angelo and headed to Sam Moon instead. For those of you that haven't heard of Sam Moon, it's a huge store in the Dallas area that sells things from luggage, to jewelry to purses. As we walked in, I quickly spotted some green necklaces that would be great for the wedding. The girls agreed, that the two who pick the one strap dress could wear the necklace as a bracelet, to not take away from the beautiful top.

A little more walking around and BM Cali & MOH Navy found perfect matching earrings to go with the necklaces. Done and Done! I picked up 5 sets (I loved them and wanted a set for myself as well) and will be putting them in the girls' thank you gifts which will be handed out the night before the wedding.

We parted ways with Mama Elephant and Aunt Bunny, who anyone in the family will tell you can run a gauntlet when it comes to shopping, and made our way to the Tribute. We didn't have an appointment or anything, but Bethany (the current coordinator) let us look around while they were setting up for a Saturday night wedding. The girls all loved the venue, which is awesome! We did walk out back to the gazebo, where I got this windy picture of them.

We headed back to my apartment and went through all the DIY projects I've been working on. We parted ways (to take a nap) until later that night when we would meet up at BM Aggie's house to work on the Save the Dates.

When time together is little, are you able to pack in a lot of wedding activities into one day?
