DFW Mansion Venue

It is almost wedding time at our DFW Mansion Venue and you’re still ironing out some of the details, including your something borrowed! What should you use for your something borrowed? We have a few ideas from the favorites we have seen in the past for you!

Your something borrowed doesn’t have to be something tangible. Use your parent’s first dance song or a snippet from their vows in your vows! Honoring your parents like this will mean so much to them! This will be a sweet way of adding them to the wedding. Your family will remember these moments for years to come and think on it fondly.

For something more tangible and wearable, borrow your mother’s or grandmother’s veil! This is a small detail but a detail that will definitely be noticed. It is another beautiful way to honor the women in your family and creates a bond that you will never forget.

Lastly, use the cake topper or cake knife that your parents used at their wedding! If you go with the cake topper, you might get a fun and unique vintage cake topper that will only add to your cake. Everyone will know the story behind it and make it incredibly sweet. If your family still has the knife that they used to cut their cake, you can use this, too! Get your last names or a piece from your vows engraved in it and this will become a family memento that it used down the line, as well.

We are so excited to see what you choose for your something borrowed, something blue, something old, and something new at the best DFW Mansion Venue! If you’re interested in having your big day at The Lone Star Mansion, contact us today to get the conversation started.

At The Lone Star Mansion Venue, we offer day-of coordinators with our packages! What exactly is the point of a day-of coordinator? You’ve gotten this far without a wedding coordinator, so can’t you do the same on your wedding day? We’re here to tell you all about why you need a day-of coordinator and why we provide one for you!

On the day of your wedding, your coordinator will become your best friend. If you have questions or need help, they will be there for you! Any issues that might come up, they are there to deal with. If people have questions, they can take them to the coordinator instead of you.

On top of questions and help, your day-of coordinator will be there for you to figure out timing and places for everyone! Your coordinator will be with you from rehearsal to down the aisle to ensuring that your reception goes smoothly. The day-of coordinator will make sure that everyone knows who they walk own with, where they will stand, and the tempo to walk to down the aisle at.

The goal of having a day-of coordinator is to make sure that everyone, but most of all you, have a stress free day. We want you to focus on your big day as a happy day, not a day full of stress and planning. We want to give you this stress-free part of your day by offering day-of coordinators with our packages. This will also make it so that you have one less vendor to find on your own.

We would love to talk you through some of our packages and other amenities that we offer with each package! While we are so excited about our day-of coordinators, we have other amenities, as well. Contact us to find out more.

2020 Wedding Decor Trends

March 17, 2020

Fort Worth Wedding

Are you having a wedding in 2020? Here are all of the trends that we are seeing this year in wedding decor! Some range from fun and unique to cute and simple. We can’t wait to see if these get used at our Fort Worth Wedding Venue!

One of the more fun and out-there trends of 2020 is implementing disco balls in your wedding decor! No, but seriously. We’re not talking just a disco ball above the dance floor, but full-on decorating with them! Creating clumps of different sized ones with tulle or florals mixed in creates a fun and unique atmosphere during your reception.

Color blocking, which is using contrasting colors side by side to create an eye-catching pattern, is alos more popular this year! We saw this popping up in 2019, but 2020 is the year of color blocking. Create a color-blocked pattern for behind your sweetheart table or for a unique photo booth to create stunning pictures.

Signage on glass is IN! Think phrases, table charts, table numbers, and anything else that will be written. You can go for normal glass, but don’t forget about glass vases, and jars, too! This will create a stunning and simple table scape on each table.

Lastly, edible florals! You can use edible florals on your cake, in your signature cocktails, in ice cubes, on top of other desserts, and anywhere else, as well! They make a beautiful addition to any drink or dessert item, so don’t be afraid to use them.

Are you nterested in having your upcoming wedding at our venue? We would love to talk with you about your upcoming big day to see if we have open dates! Contact us today to get the conversation started or to set up a tour of our Fort Worth Wedding venue!

Day-Of Details

March 12, 2020

The Lone Star Mansion

Wondering about the day-of details of The Lone Star Mansion? We’ve outlined everything that you will need to know about how weddings typically work day-of at our venue.

Once the big day arrives, we will typically open the doors at 11 a.m., unless specified otherwise in the package type. We have plenty of on-site parking. This allows everyone to be able to park in the parking lot of Lone Star Mansion since we have room for everyone. We can even provide a golf cart, driven by our staff, to transport people between the parking lot and the venue. This is ideal for any guests that may have difficulty walking or are not sure of where to go. This is always great to have if you have relatives or friends that are older, as well.

After the ceremony, we will have a cocktail hour spent away from the reception area to make sure everything is ready. This cocktail hour time allows you to have a great amount of time to take pictures with your wedding party, too! Throughout the reception, we will be efficient in seating everyone, providing food and drinks, and ensuring that everyone has a wonderful time.

From the beginning of the day to the end of the night, we will provide the best service possible to help ensure a wonderful and beautiful evening. No wedding experience is exactly the same; each wedding at Lone Star Mansion is unique to the couple getting married and the environment they wish to create. We will cater to the environment that you wish to have because we want your big day to be yours.

We truly can’t wait to see your stunning wedding at our wedding venue! We would love to talk you through any questions that you have or give you a tour of our grounds. Contact us today for help.
