Throughout literature and mythology, spring has been the symbol of rebirth and new beginnings. With warm weather chasing away the last winter chill, vibrant leaves and flowers blooming to reawaken the earth, and clean, fresh spring air, the season brings a smile and thoughts of a bright future. This joy cannot be felt more than in a spring wedding.

Texas is well known for spring weddings. The state is surrounded by gorgeous natural wildflowers, such as bluebonnets and Indian paintbrushes. Whether a couple plans to get married inside or outside, the immaculate beauty of the Texas landscape creates the perfect backdrop for their perfect day.

The Lone Star Mansion is DFW’s most lucrative wedding venue. With 20 acres of breathtaking property, you and your future spouse will feel the promise of a bright future in full bloom. Whether you choose to get married inside the luxurious 3-story antebellum-style mansion or in one of our outdoor venues, the entire day will be perfect from start to finish. If you are looking for inspiration for your ideal spring wedding, this guide from our wedding planners is for you! Here are some of our favorite Texas spring wedding themes and ideas.

Texas Wedding Themes

At the heart of Texas lies resilient people, a beautiful landscape, and a rich history. Because of this, many spring Texas themes bring in the iconic themes and ideas of what makes Texas one of the most spectacular states in our country. Here are some themes that are sure to please.

A Chic Ranch Style

A spring ranch-style wedding is a flexible theme that lends itself well to creativity and versatility of colors and decorative items. Everything from barrel tables, antlers, and cowboy boots creates a unique Western theme that ties in Texas’s rich history of life on the range. 

Besides decor and colors, food is another important factor in this theme. Platters of chicken and waffle bites, pecan pies, or a build-your-own taco bar are popular options. Top it off with good ol’ Southern whiskey, and you can guarantee that your guests will love it.

Intimate Texas Garden-Inspired Wedding

The Lone Star Mansion has many extravagant outdoor locations for you and your future spouse to get married. Any of these locations can be easily transformed into a garden paradise, surrounded by gorgeous Texas wildflowers such as bluebonnets, Indian paintbrushes, or purple coneflowers. 

Garden weddings are relaxing, and the beautiful scenery will inspire a feeling of pure love. If you are looking to spice this theme up a bit, you can pair it with jazzy music, or if you want a more rustic feel, you can pair it with popular folk tunes. Allow your guests to sink into the dreamy mood inspired by the beauty of Texas’s landscape.

Spring Wedding Color Palettes

Picking the right color palette for your wedding can be tricky, but it is essential when choosing a theme. You don’t want to decide on a fairy-tale-inspired wedding complete with a whimsical dress and then use dark colors; the palette will destroy the magical look and feel of your event.
