When wedding planning is in full swing, it is easy to let it take over everything. There has to remain a healthy balance between work, life, and wedding planning, though. Without a balance, wedding planning will quickly become overwhelming and hard to handle. In order to stay sane during this process, there are ways to keep a balance. Here are a few tips and tricks we’ve learned over the years to help out with not becoming engulfed in the planning.

  • Over the next few months, a daily planner should and will become your best friend. It will allow you to keep track of everything you need to do for work and for wedding planning so that you don’t get lost in one or the other. You’ll be able to write in to remind yourself to spend 30 minutes of lunch to researching dresses or calling vendors. You can remind yourself to take planning-free days so that you don’t spend all of your free time wedding planning and researching.
  • On the topic of free time, use your free time wisely. Yes, you should still be able to watch your favorite shows while you are wedding planning. Rather than binging episodes, get things done for your planning instead. No matter how big or small, when tasks are done, they feel great to cross off!
  • Make sure to delegate, delegate, delegate. Asking for help is not a sign that you are failing at planning your wedding. It is a sign that shows you that you really do need the help! Wedding planning is overwhelming and can get the best of us if we let it. Stay ahead of the curve and delegate and ask for help early on. Your mother and your fiancé would love to help you out to plan your big day.

We love seeing all of the different people in your life at our DFW mansion venue. One of the hardest parts of choosing your wedding party is: how big or small does it need to be? You don’t want to disappoint any friends, but you don’t want to let everyone be in it, either. The average size for a wedding party is 5-6 on each side. Does this number seem really low or pretty high to you? Let’s go over some of the factors that might help you decide your wedding party size.

  • Are you looking into doing a lot of DIY tasks in preparation for your wedding? Consider a bigger wedding party. More people means more hands and more time available to help you out with all of your wedding DIY ideas and planning.
  • Are you needing to cut costs? A smaller party might be the way to go. Traditionally, the couple will pay for the bouquets and lodging for the wedding party. The smaller the party, the less you have t worry about paying.
  • Another way to make sure you have the right size of wedding party is to match it to the size of your guest list. If you’re having an intimate ceremony and reception of 50 or less, consider having 2-4 people on each side. On the other hand, if you’re planning a wedding for 200+, consider having 7-10 on each side. This will make the wedding feel more balanced.
  • All in all, don’t feel like your wedding party has to be a certain number! If you have 2 best friends from 2nd grade that you’ve dreamed of being the only ones forever now, just have 2! If you have 12 sorority sisters and 2 roommates that you just have to have in your wedding party, have a 14 person wedding party! It comes down to what you want out of your wedding.

Fall is approaching and that means fall weddings are upon us! You are probably about to send out your save the dates for your autumn wedding which is the first sign that your big day is almost here. Autumn is a beautiful season to have a wedding because of all the unique additions you can add to your day. As the best mansion venue, we wanted to tell you some of our favorite fall wedding trends.

  • Fall is the season for wooden elements throughout wedding decor! Obviously wooden decor can be used year round, but it just fits into an autumn wedding. You can use shipping palettes to write your menu on or just use wooden boards for typographical elements in your decor. Find an old wooden bar cart to set your cake, or your bar, at! This will add a rustic, fall feel to your entire day.
  • If you want an outdoor wedding into the later part of the season, consider having blankets for guests! Not only will this keep guests happy and attentive if its chilly, but it will add a cozy look to all of your ceremony photos.
  • Use your florals to show the season. Dark, moody bouquets will add a beautiful autumn touch and will match the leaves of the trees. You can also opt for branches as floral fillers rather than greenery. This will continue to help set the autumn inspired mood of your wedding at the best mansion venue.
  • Take advantage of fall food and drinks! Consider having a dessert bar, like a s’mores bar or a hot chocolate bar. You can serve fall-inspired drinks, as well. Apple cider, virgin or spiked, is always a favorite. Mulled wine and hot toddys would be a great option for an autumn cocktail hour.

We all know that family can hard to deal with. When you get all of your family in one room, it can be even harder, but that is not something that you want to worry about on your wedding day. No one wants to deal with family drama when everyone is supposed to be celebrating. We have some tips and tricks to best avoid, and diffuse, tension and drama on your wedding day.

  • Firstly, no matter what happens, you need to remain a united front with your new spouse. Be sure to communicate any potential trouble spots with each other before the big day so that you’re both aware of the possibilities.
  • Come up with ways before the big day to take away potential trouble spots. If you know two of your relatives that don’t get along, seat them on opposite sides of the room. This will naturally make it harder for them to create any drama with each other. Have ways to diffuse situations already planned out. Let a family member know that if something happens, you want them to be in charge of separating the drama so that it is not on your plate.
  • If you feel comfortable doing so, talk to those people prior to the big day and let them know that drama won’t be tolerated. You would really like both parties to be there to celebrate you in a healthy way.
  • Lastly, if you think two people absolutely cannot get along for your big day, consider not inviting them at all. This might seem harsh, but it is your big day and you deserve to have a drama and stress free day to celebrate. If you feel like someone or something might put a damper on it, it is your call to make on not inviting them.
