It’s 2020 which means all sorts of new wedding trends that you will be seeing popping up. As your favorite Texas Mansion Venue, we wanted to share one of our favorite yearly wedding trends: the year’s trending colors! Each year brings new ideas for colors to use for wedding decor and accents. We are very excited about 2020’s trends!

  • First on the list of colors you’ll be seeing this year is cinnamon rose palettes. The name of these color combos alone sounds beautiful. This will include dusty reds and dark blushes. This combo would look perfect in our white venue!
  • Next up is a mix of terra-cotta & sage colors. With these, you can do a fully saturated terra-cotta and a lighter sage color. You could also switch it and do the opposite. By toning down one color, this will make sure that both colors are not swallowing your entire wedding day.
  • Shades of grey are very in this year. The monochromatic look has been very in for the past few years, but we have not seen many venturing into monochromatic grey. This look is incredibly elegant and will be the perfect color palette to complement your off-white dress.
  • Yellows will still be in next year, as well! Whether you go with a mustard yellow, a try yellow, or a pale yellow, you really can’t go wrong. Yellows are perfect for the warmer seasons in Texas! Think any wedding between March and October, and this is when a yellow based palette would be perfect.
  • Lastly, dusty blue as the main color in your palette is back! If you’re wanting a moodier color scheme, this is the perfect base for that. On the other hand, paired with a pale yellow, dusty blue would be a great summer color, as well.

Fort Worth Mansion Wedding

Our Forth Worth mansion wedding venue can hold up to three hundred people – perfect for a large wedding! The thing about large weddings is that they can be even more stressful than an average sized wedding. We have some tips for you on how to manage a big wedding.

  • Having a large wedding can make those who you are closest to feel far away from you on your big day. To counteract this, have a smaller rehearsal dinner and a smaller wedding reception. Just have your closest relatives, your wedding party, and other close friends with you at these celebrations. You will be happy to have some smaller stress events, as well.
  • Don’t necessarily try to talk and take pictures with everyone! Celebrate how you want to celebrate, it is your big day, of course. If you don’t want to have a long line of people waiting to take a picture and say congratulations for half of your reception, you don’t have to! Just have fun, eat, and dance; those who really want to say something or take a picture will come up to you at these times.
  • If you would rather greet all of your guests, don’t line them up. Instead, plan on making your way table to table! This will keep the process more organized and make you more in charge of the time that you spend with each person and each table.

Having a large wedding can be more stressful, but if you use these tips, it will cut down on that stress. We would love to host your large wedding at our mansion venue. Contact us today to learn more about our availability for the upcoming year, as well as, all of the places within our venue that you can have your ceremony and reception at.

Choice DFW Mansion Venue

Choice DFW Mansion Venue

Are you giving a speech for your best friend or sibling at our choice DFW mansion venue? No need to fear the speech, we’ve created the perfect outline for your speech and all you have to do is fill in your stories and friendship with your people.

  1. First off, be sure to introduce yourself! Everyone likes to know who is talking even if they won’t talk to you again for the rest of the reception. Once you’ve introduced yourself, go into how you know the bride or groom.
  2. After explaining how you know your respective friend you can begin to tell a funny story about them. Think hard about the story that you tell because you don’t want to embarrass them too much, and you definitely don’t want to make them feel ostracized on their own wedding day. A good, light-hearted story will do perfectly, though! After the laughs are done, transition into an endearing tone to end the story.
  3. Now that you’re back in endearing mode, go into how you heard about their partner and how you met them for the first time as a unit. You can talk about your newfound friendship with them as a couple or how much love you see between them when you are with them. This is the peak of the speech since it is both of their wedding days. You can make this emotional or keep it more light-hearted if you don’t want to make anyone cry.
  4. End your speech with a congratulations to your friend and their new spouse. Last but not least, don’t forget to toast to them and their new marriage.

The average toast is three to five minutes. That is plenty of time to talk about your friend, your friendship, and their newfound love in a concise, beautiful, and not rushed way.

Why a Good DJ is Important

A good DJ will keep your wedding reception going all night long, from the moment that guests walk into the reception until after you’re grand exit. Good music keeps guests at your reception longer and celebrating more. Everyone will have a great time, including you, when you choose a good DJ! Here are some other reasons why our premier Burleson wedding venue thinks that choosing a good DJ is important.

  • A good DJ is truly the difference in your guests dancing the night away and your guests leaving your reception early. They will keep your guests entertained the entire night and will make them never want to leave! The right DJ will be playing great music all night because they know what kind of music people want to listen to and dance to. They will have experience in keeping people having fun.
  • Secondly, you’re paying money for your DJ, so you mine as well pay for a great one! You want to make sure that you’re not wasting money on someone that isn’t good and won’t keep you and your guests having fun all night!
  • Lastly, you should have a good DJ because they won’t just be in charge of the fun music, but they will be in charge of the music for all of the official dances, as well. Whether it is your father/daughter dance, mother/son, or even your first dance, the DJ that you choose will be playing all of it! You want everything to be on cue and a good DJ will make sure that happens.

We are so excited to have you at our premier Burleson wedding venue and be able to see you and all of your closest friends dance the night away! Contact us to talk to us about your future wedding at our beautiful mansion venue.
