One of the reasons we’re known for being one of the best Fort Worth wedding venues is that we take great care in assisting you with every aspect of your big day. One of those important decisions after getting engaged is choosing a wedding date. Ask yourselves these questions below to determine what your best wedding date would be.

How long do you want your engagement to be?

Choosing the length of your engagement is the first step when choosing your date. Some people want to get married right away, while others need more time for the planning process. There’s no wrong answer here.

What time of year do you prefer? Do you want it to be cooler, warmer? Indoor or outdoor?

Texas weather is unpredictable at best but if you’re getting married in your hometown, you know what time of the year you love most. Other important factors include weather your want your ceremony or reception indoors or outdoors and if you prefer cooler or warmer weather.

Who must you have at your wedding and what are their schedules?

Make a list of people who you must have at your wedding. You parents, bridal party, groomsmen, and any immediate family member you must have and consider their schedules. Run potential dates by them to see if they’re are any conflicts that can’t be rescheduled. Only do this for a select few though, otherwise it will be virtually impossible to coordinate everyone’s schedules.

Biggest Trends from 2018

December 17, 2018

Part of why we are such a popular Burleson venue is that we embrace new and old traditions. We loved seeing all the new trends that happened this year and wanted to reflect back on our favorites from this year as we enter another new and exciting year of weddings in 2019.

Dramatic Backdrops

Ceremony backdrops for outdoor weddings, escort card displays, backdrops for photo booths and food stations got more and more creative this year. Some showstoppers ideas included: macramé hangings with floral accents, commissioned murals, geometric wooden structures, boxwood walls, strings of dangling lights and fresh greenery patterned walls.

Creative Florals

Speaking of drama, we saw the popularity of more elaborate floral displays not only on tablescapes put also cascading floral bouquets and garland bouquets you can wear. In addition, couples embraced greenery, sometimes forgoing blooms all together.

Millennial Pink

A color palette we saw  over and over again this year that we think will become as classic as white weddings. We have a feeling this trend will carry over in to next year with couples putting their own unique spin on it with their decor.

A Nod to Mod

Light-reflecting lucite is striking and modern. This transparent material commands attention without distracting from the view. It’s no wonder this material became so popular and we don’t see it going out of style in the new year.

Dallas Forth Worth Weddings

If you’re in search of a Fort Worth New Years Eve venue because you’ve always dreamed of having your first kiss as husband and wife at the stroke of midnight. Then you should check out our inspiration for having a sparkling New Years Eve wedding.

Ceremony Backdrop

A gaudy backdrop with twinkling lights with gold and white balloons is the perfect backdrop to say I do.

Ceremony Aisle

Roll out the red carpet but instead make it a glittery gold carpet to walk down the aisle on and make your send off memorable.

Sequined Dresses

Having a New Years Eve wedding wouldn’t be complete without sequins and bling. Consider a non-traditional wedding dress in white sequins or have your bridesmaids wear sequins that flip for a pop of gold.

Countdown

Add clocks as centerpieces at your reception tables so guests can countdown to midnight.

Foil Photobooth

An alternate New Year’s palette of silver, white, and blush combine for a twinkling effect. It’s the perfect backdrop for your guests to pose with props and fill up your hashtag with memories.

Resolution Guest Book

Instead of having guests write well wishes, have them share a resolution for you and your husband to take on in the New Year.

Sparkler Sendoff

If there was ever a more appropriate time for sparklers it’s for a New Year’s Eve sendoff.

Winter Bachelorette Party

December 3, 2018

DFW wedding venue

Throwing a winter bachelorette party this year and looking for the best fort worth venue to host it? A glamorous winter event is the perfect way to get everyone in the mood to celebrate with the bride-to-be, even when the weather outside is cold and gloomy. Here are three of our favorite ideas for a winter bachelorette bash.

Pamper yourselves

A spa retreat is a classic bachelorette party idea, but is especially important during winter when the stress of the holidays is at its highest. Plan a weekend of pampering from makeup, hair, nails and massages and then spend the rest of the weekend in a hotel binge watching Netflix and swapping stories. By the end of the weekend you’ll be rested and clear headed to tackling last minute wedding details that were to overwhelming to think about before.

Bright Lights in the City

Do the holidays energize you? Bundle up and explore Sundance Square with your girls. Maybe even take a carriage ride around downtown and window shop in comfort and style.

Cozy-themed Weekend

Have you always dreamed a weekend getaway full of DIY crafts, games, a caramel apple dipping station, and a hot chocolate liquor bar to get all warm and cozy by the fire? Book an Airbnb for the weekend and decorate with pinecones, flannel blankets and wood elements to bring a lot of warm, cozy vibes.
