Actually, my 1st anny is this weekend as well. We're doing high end Dallas steakhouse (made reservations a month ago, did something right for once! ) and we will probably chill out and grab drinks or doing something more quiet, romantic.

We wanted to do the whole B&B weekend trip and it's just too expensive. We just went on a two-week honeymoon, I think dinner will suffice for our 1st year.

If shopping must be part of the equation, then I'd go with the Belmont and shuttle to Bishop Arts.
If not, the Adolphus, Joule, Omni, NYLO are all good downtown options with easy access to everything else on your list.

If you have unlimited wealth, ZAZA partnered with the Crescent shopping options across the street may be an alternative.

How about the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine?
You never have to leave the Resort grounds, there's plenty to keep you entertained for a week-end.

Ok, then here are some suggestions:

The Joule (downtown)
shop - along Main Street & Commerce there is the original flagship Neiman's, trendy clothing stores TenOverSix & Traffic, Taschen books inside the Joule, etc. You're also really close to the Nasher / DMA/ Crow Museum and Klyde Warren Park if you want to do that instead of shopping.

Eat Dinner at Stephen Pyles or The French Room at the Adolphus

Breakfast at CBD Provisions in the Joule

The Belmont (North Oak Cliff)
use their car to drive a short distance to Bishop Arts District which has a ton of cute little shops (home & apparel, and less expensive than the shopping downtown) and eat dinner there as well. There aren't any "formal" restaurants in that area, but if you haven't eaten at Lucia or Boulevardier, they are excellent.

Breakfast at Smoke at the Belmont (ricotta pancakes are to die for!) Or go back to Bishop Arts District and eat at Oddfellows.

The bar at the Belmont is great too - patio has the most killer view of downtown Dallas.

To me, this option is the most uniquely "Dallas" of the three.

Zaza/ Ritz/ Crescent hotels (Uptown)

Dinner at Fearing's or Nobu

Shop at The Crescent (Stanley Korshak) and the antique stores & art galleries along Fairmont.

Brunch at Dream Café or Breadwinners.

Personally, I'd stay at the Adolphus and go to The French Room if I wanted something really special before heading upstairs for a reprise of the passion of the honeymoon. I wouldn't worry about the fact that I might miss out on some of the other items on your list (as much as I, too, enjoy those things!).

I enjoy a short weekend trip to Ft. Worth when possible. Close enough, but getting away (kind of). You could stay at the Omni or Worthington/Renissance @ Sundance Square. Using Uber there are a lot of fun options in the area. You could also plan around an event going on at Bass Hall.

Fort Worth - stay at the Worthington. Eat at Reata and/or Lonesome Dove. I still crave the elk sliders I had a few years ago at Lonesome Dove. mmm!

If you do this, consider Perry's for dinner. It is our favorite steakhouse in Dallas
