Burleson Wedding Venue

Has being in front of a lot of people always made you nervous and a little bit sweaty? You’re not alone! So many people hate being in front of a room of people and having to talk. This fear doesn’t really just go away because it is your wedding day, either. Here are a few tips and tricks from our Burleson Wedding Venue to steamroll through your wedding day stage fright.

  • If talking in front of everyone you know makes you nervous, do traditional vows! This will take away any stress of “but what if what I write sounds dumb or doesn’t make sense?” You will not have to worry about writing your own vows and becoming increasingly anxious about what everyone thinks about them.
  • With that, rehearse your vows before! You don’t have to memorize the vows, but it will calm your nerves to say them in a mirror a couple of times before your big day.
  • Instead of a sweetheart table, have a head table! You and your spouse being the full center of attention will be diffused a little bit by your parents and, at the very least, your maid of honor and best man being there. Even though you will still be the center of attention, it will not feel like this as much.
  • Lastly, yes, you will be standing in front of a lot of people and, yes, you will be reciting your vows in front of them. All of this means that you will be married to the love of your life at the end! If nothing else helps you get through your stage fright, let that diffuse your fear a little bit. Your forever person will be right next to you the entire time you are in front of everyone!

Trending Colors of 2020

Favorite Texas Mansion Venue

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

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.
