    Sounds like a great way to spend the afternoon, trying on gorgeous dresses with your sister! I love the style that you picked out, I especially like the bow accent. And you’ll totally be able to wear that again for other occasions!
    Pretzels = yum. I am going to need to make these asap.

    The bridesmaid dress looks beautiful – that was the one I would’ve chosen!

    I’ve been meaning to make homemade pretzels and bagels for a long time. I think I might have to try out Rachel’s pretzel recipe. Thanks. :]

    LOVE the dresses!!
    I’ve never made pretzels – I need to get on that. I bet that cinnamon-sugar was to die for!

    Love love LOVE Alfred Angelo – I wore one of his gowns on my wedding day, quality is amazing and design was awesome (all for the price I paid)… had I been able to get them for my bridesmaids would have been awesome πŸ™‚

    Love the dress! That bow definitely adds a nice touch.

    I would opt for the cinnamon sugar donut. Or with the salted pretzel, a side of cheese to dip it in. πŸ˜‰

    You each picked the dress that was my favorite–good work! πŸ™‚ Also, you may have inspired me…growing up, my brother and I would often make pretzels with my mom on Sunday night. I might just have to recreate the tradition.

    Great choices for your dresses! I think the burgundy one with the all-over ruching is a close runner up.
    I specified the color and had my bridesmaids pick what they felt comfortable in too.

    You picked the dress that I’m wearing to my girlfriend’s wedding this July!!! Though she’s having all 5 of us wearing that same style and without the bow. (When we tried it at the store, we didn’t even know it came with a bow!)

    Her color is a purple (we haven’t seen it) so it might even be the color you tried on!

    mmm those pretzels look great! When I was younger a trip to the mall wasn’t complete without a pretzel from Auntie Anne’s. The nutritional profile and cost of these pretzels might just give Auntie Anne a run for her money!

    Looking lovely in all the dresses but definitely think you both made the right choices. I adore the bow detailing as it really accentuates your nipped in waist. You look stunning and I’m sure the blue colour will really suit your hair/eye colouration too.

    Good luck with the packing: one of my most dreaded activities πŸ˜‰

    I want those pretzels now! Mmmm…nothing I want to cook is actually a meal anymore! Maybe I’ll just make a sporgasboard of pretzels, homemade cheez its and wheat thins. If you make it at home, it’s healthy, right?

    Love alfred angelo! My bridesmaids said they actually wore their dresses they got from there more than once!

    Good luck packing!
