Friday is when the Wedding Weekend really started to pick up for us. Most, if not all, our family and friends have arrived at this point and the we were ready for the weekend to get busy! When our guests arrived to the hotel to check in, they were given fun little welcome bags that included snacks, bottled water, Baylor stickers, and information packets:
Anyway, back to Friday. The first thing I planned for the day was a Bridesmaids/Mothers Tea. I had all of my lovely, incredible seven bridesmaids, my mother, Mary (Greg’s mom), and Grandma Linda (Daddyo’s mom) there for the festivities. The event took place at Cullen’s over here in the Clear Lake area. It only made sense to have it on this side of town since the rest of the weekend would be taking place around the Galleria area.
When I first booked the event, the folks at Cullen’s were so amazing! I got to completely personalize my menu for my tastes, pick out linens and even charger plates! There was even a personalized menu at each place setting. It was awesome. The room looked beautiful, the food was amazing (along with the mimosas), and we had a wonderful time! We felt so prim and girly with our tea, scones, and mini sandwiches. I highly recommend Cullen’s if you’re thinking about hosting an event! Here are a few pictures from the tea.
The spread. Everything was so pretty (and delicious)!
My lovely bridesmaids at the tea. Notice the hot pink pintuck linens and mimosas!
Me and my Momma! I feel so Jackie O. in that dress.
All of the lovely ladies!
View of the living room with views of the Galleria area. That was just one of the rooms. Dude, we even had our own doorbell, entryway, bar, half bath and much more! It was so awesome.
