Mansion Wedding Venue DFW

Mansion Wedding Venue DFW

We all know the phrase: “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.” Are you unsure of what to use for your “something old” at our DFW mansion wedding venue? If you’re at a loss for what to use, we have all the ideas for you on your big day!

Use a family members jewelry! Whether it is additional rings that you add into your look, the necklace you wear, or a hairpiece, this is the perfect way for your something old. Look your your grandmother’s old jewelry box or your mother’s heirlooms from her grandmother to find these pieces. If you love the idea of using jewelry as your something old, but no one has any, opt for a vintage store! Your something old doesn’t have to be from a relative at all.

Another item that you can use is a veil. The same way with jewelry, you can use a relative’s or find an old one in a vintage store! Old veils are beautiful and a great way to incorporate your “something old.”

Lastly, no one said that your “something old” has to be something tangible. Use an old poem that means a lot to you in your vows. You could also use your parent’s vows incorporated into your own, or their vows completely! It is fully your choice how you would do this.

There are so many more things that you can add to your wedding to be your “something old.” These are just a few of our favorites that the Lone Star Mansion wanted to share with you. We are so excited to see what you use your your wedding at our mansion venue!

Premier DFW Mansion Venue

We’re in the age of the computer which means that everything is going digital. This includes things like wedding invitations and save the dates. This might be confusing to navigate, but this premier DFW mansion venue is here to help!

Just because clicking send means that the save the date will go through automatically, does not mean that you should procrastinate it later than the normal time frame of sending save the dates! You should still plan on around 6 months out. You have to think of those family and friends that will be traveling in and will need to make arrangements and take time off.

Have your online save the date cards match the formality of your wedding! If you’re having a casual wedding, use more casual wording and a more casual template design. If you’re having a black tie affair at our mansion venue, maybe opt out of sending email save the dates. You want the guests’ first interaction with your wedding to set what the mood will actually be.

You should also keep online save the dates in mind if you’re looking to cut your budget somewhere. This will take off the design cost, printing cost, and stamp cost! There will be a nice chunk of money that will be freed up if you choose to opt for online save the dates rather than traditional printed ones.

You may be all good on your save the dates now, but are you still looking for your perfect wedding venue? Lone Star Mansion would love to talk to you about our packages and why are the best venue for your big day. Contact us to get the conversation started about your wedding day! We would love to answer any and all questions that you might have.

DFW Wedding Venue

Fall is here which means fall themed weddings and wedding decor is here! Autumn is an incredibly popular season to get married in because of the aesthetic and the weather. Over the years we’ve seen some beautiful and unique ways to incorporate the season into weddings. With that, we wanted to share with you some our favorite fall wedding favors! If you’re needing inspiration for your wedding favors at our DFW wedding venue, we’ve got you covered!

  • Give your guests mini pumpkins for the road! It will get their home in the autumn-mood post wedding. You can even attach a small note or just a thank you to them stem to complete the favor. Who doesn’t love a good mini pumpkin?
  • With the weather cooling down, tea is officially in season. Give out bags of tea with a stick of honey for guests to enjoy once they are home and cuddled up with their favorite blanket. Everyone loves tea, and adding the stick of honey is that added sweetness. There are so many fun puns and plays on words that you can do with honey and tea that makes it the perfect favor.
  • Another great fall wedding favor would be a mini bag of mulling spices. Guests can use this to make cider, mulled wine, or even just to leave in their car as an autumn car-freshener! With multiple uses to suit each guest, mulling spices are a fun (and affordable!) fall themed wedding favor for your wedding guests.
  • Our last favorite autumn themed wedding favor is socks! You can never go wrong with a pair of simple, fuzzy socks for any type of celebration or gift, and that continues to ring true here. This would be a tangible gift that guests will continually enjoy and use.

Rules to Bringing a Plus One

Are you going to a Burlseon mansion wedding at Lone Star Mansion and you’re unsure about the ettiequte of bringing a plus-one? We have got you covered with all the information and unspoken rules that you could need about bringing a plus-one to that upcoming wedding.

  • First things first, listen to your invitation! If it says that you can bring a plus one, you can. If it doesn’t say anything about a plus-one, it is safe to assume that you did not receive a plus-one. The reasons for this are numerous, so it is best not to question their choice and to just go along with it. You don’t need a date to a wedding for it to be great!
  • If your guest was named on the invitation, your plus-one is for that specific person. If your significant other can’t go, it does not mean that you can just substitute your best friend in place. If a specific person is named, it is as if they got their own invitation and you would not just pass along your whole invitation to the next person.
  • Lastly, think about who you’re bringing! If you recently started dating the bride’s brother’s ex, it might be best to opt out of bringing a plus-one entirely. The wedding is about the couple getting married, not about who you are choosing to bring as a wedding date. Respect the couple and who you are bringing as your plus-one if you are invited to bring one.

We hope that you are just as excited about the wedding that you are coming to celebrate as we are to host it at our beautiful mansion. Are you still looking for a venue for your wedding, too? Contact us to talk about our venue for your wedding!
