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.

There are so many ways to ask your best friends to be your bridesmaids to the best Fort Worth wedding venue. We wanted to help you figure out the best way to ask your friends with some of our favorites that we have seen.

  • Go classic with a box of goodies. Add in a bottle of wine, face masks, lip balm, and a cute note asking each of your friends the question! Once they have all been asked, they can either enjoy a solo girls night, or you can all get together with your wine and face masks. They will feel so special!
  • If your entire friend group is close, bring them all out to brunch together! Get the check and ask them as a group. It will be a memory that everyone will share and be able to look back on together.
  • You could also bring everyone to a DIY class, like candle-pouring or flower arrangements, and ask them then! Usually DIY places let you bring in snacks and drinks to celebrate occasions like this. Not only will everyone be excited, but they will get a small gift out of it, as well.
  • Do you love one-on-one time with your girls? Bring them individually out to coffee and ask them then! It will be a special moment between you and each of your friends. Just remind them to keep the secret until everyone has been asked!
  • If you have friends that are long distance or you’re better at expressing yourself through writing, make DIY watercolor cards and write a sweet note to ask. They will be able to always keep this as a tangible object of your friendship. Mail them or deliver them in person to everyone.

However you ask your girls, we are so excited to see you all at the best Fort Worth wedding venue, Lone Star Mansion!

DFW Mansion Venue

DFW Mansion Venue

You are about to get married at your dream DFW mansion venue. You have been planning your wedding, and having a great time doing so. Now its time to plan your rehearsal dinner, and you have no idea where to start! We are here to help you with everything you need to know about rehearsal dinners.

What even is a rehearsal dinner? The rehearsal dinner is a thank you to everyone who is involved in the wedding. This is a dinner that happens directly after the wedding rehearsal. For practicality purposes, it is to feed everyone who came for the rehearsal. It is also for everyone to be together before the wedding!

Who is invited? Typically, everyone involved in the wedding is invited. Your bridesmaids, groomsmen, family that is involved, and house parties should all be invited. This dinner is so that everyone who you are close to can be thanked, and have one more chance to celebrate with you!

Something that you need to decide early on is who is hosting the dinner. If one family is paying for the wedding, one should pay for the dinner. You can also have both of your families hosting together. You can even host the dinner yourself if both families are paying for the wedding equally and you want to contribute!

Something to keep in mind is to not let your rehearsal dinner overshadow your wedding. Have a dinner as extravagant as you want, but remember that it is not the main event of the weekend. Leave your loved ones with high expectations for the wedding day.

Lastly, be excited! This is a time that everyone who is in your inner circle gets to celebrate your marriage together. Don’t let the stress of the day or the weekend get in the way of soaking up this time.

As Maid of Honor at our Fort Worth mansion venue, you will have many jobs throughout the pre-wedding and wedding process. It is a lot of work, but for someone that you love, it will all be worth it. We will highlight some of the important ones for you to know.

  1. Be there for your best friend as they go through dress shopping and fittings. This process is easy for some, and incredibly hard for others. They will need your support as their friend and advocate during these!
  2. Be prepared to plan and host/co-host the bridal shower and bachelorette party. You know your friend the best out of anyone, so you’ll know exactly what she will want out of these things. She might want big, extravagant parties, or she might want a small, intimate get-together. It will be your job to plan and execute this!
  3. No bride wants to have to answer lots of questions from her bridesmaids on her wedding day, so be prepared to be that ear! You will be responsible for keeping the bridesmaids organized and being in charge. Be ready to answer any and all questions that might come up, help the girls be on time, and keep any potential drama at bay.
  4. You will also get to help your best friend get ready for her wedding day! This might include helping get her dress on and making sure her make-up looks how she wants it to. Be ready for anything else she might need, as well!
  5. Lastly and most importantly, you will be needed as a friend throughout the entire wedding process, beginning to end. Be ready to listen, hug, and give solid advice. You will get to see her throughout her marriage and know everything that you two went together to get to her wedding day. It will be a lasting memory that you will share with a dear friend.
