Burleson Small Wedding Splurges

Now that we’re are all embracing the new normal, and accepting the fact that small weddings may be around for a while, we want to give you a few tips on the best places to splurge for your big day. From flowers to photography and decor to entertainment – the priorities for every couple are different. The beauty of having an intimate wedding is that your budget will go further with fewer guests and allow you to focus on what’s important to you.

When it comes to entertainment, you may decide to focus on live music, from a pianist to a band, even with a small group in attendance live music can create an event to remember.

If you and your fiance are foodies, you may want to dedicate the extra budget to the menu. Transitioning to a multi-course meal with paired beverages can be a personalized treat for all.

Another area we see a lot of our couples focusing some of their extra budget on is photography and videography. Although you’ll have less guests, there will be no shortage of amazing moments to capture. One consistent thing we hear from most couples is how fast their wedding day goes. They tell us how it was an amazing blur of special moments, and how grateful they are to have the photos and videos to come back to for years to come.

Most importantly, it’s about what’s important to you. You may feel like your plans have all changed, but creating an experience that is all about you and your fiance can be a magical twist.

Burleson Event Venue

When you’re venue shopping one area that you may not have on your checklist (but you should) are the bride and grooms’ suites. These spaces actually end up being a big part of your day and photos. Not only will you use the space to get ready in, but also have that last conversation with your family and bridal party before walking down the aisle. It’s where you’ll step into your dress, it’s where the men will have their boutonnieres attached, where you’ll toast each other and spend time laughing and smiling preparing for the big moment.

Because this room is an important part of our venue, we’ve designed an unmatched space for both our bridal suite and groom’s suite. Take a look at some of our favorite elements below.

The groom’s suite is a dream man cave! From the pool table, wet bar and big screen TV, to the poker room and sauna it truly is one-of-a-kind.

The grounds are beautiful and the food is amazing!!! This team really knows how to coordinate a wedding and they made it so easy for me to sit back and relax during the planning process and wedding day! Very attentive to detail and communication. I did not know about anything that went wrong until the day after, making it easy to enjoy myself. Even my husband loved this venue…the man cave for the groomsmen was a lifesaver!!

Should You Plan a DFW Holiday Wedding?DFW wedding venue

Setting a wedding date can be a challenge. If you’re considering claiming a holiday weekend for your upcoming nuptials, we have a few tips to help guide you along the way.

Sending Save the Dates
Experts recommend sending save the dates at least six months in advance if you are planning a holiday wedding. People rarely make plans for more than six months in advance, so this gives plenty of time to plan ahead. In addition to your save the dates, your invitations should go out a minimum of 2 months in advance.

Your Invite List
Invitation lists are a funny thing right now, while circumstances are changing week to week and month to month. For most couples, we are seeing a smaller turn out than expected, since some guests aren’t comfortable attending a group event. Having your event on a holiday, will also likely affect your turnout. Depending on the holiday you select this can increase turnout (typically on 3 days weekend holidays) or decrease on holidays on others that are popular for family tradition or travel.

Create a Holiday Experience
If you’re having your event on a holiday, embrace it. Depending on the holiday, it can be a small nod, like a patriotic-themed wedding favor for an Independence Day Event, or a full themed event for a holiday like New Year’s Eve. Letting your guests celebrate your day, while also embracing the holiday will not only create an event to remember, but it will feel original and unique to you as a couple.

Confirm Your Favorite Vendors in Advance
Don’t forget, vendors celebrate holidays also. You’ll want to get a headstart compared to what you wedding timeline checklist is telling you, in regards to booking your favorite vendors. So many vendors reserve certain holidays for time and traditions with their family, while others book up quickly on holidays or highly requested dates.
