Has being in front of a lot of people always made you nervous and a little bit sweaty? You’re not alone! So many people hate being in front of a room of people and having to talk. This fear doesn’t really just go away because it is your wedding day, either. Here are a few tips and tricks from our Burleson Wedding Venue to steamroll through your wedding day stage fright.

  • If talking in front of everyone you know makes you nervous, do traditional vows! This will take away any stress of “but what if what I write sounds dumb or doesn’t make sense?” You will not have to worry about writing your own vows and becoming increasingly anxious about what everyone thinks about them.
  • With that, rehearse your vows before! You don’t have to memorize the vows, but it will calm your nerves to say them in a mirror a couple of times before your big day.
  • Instead of a sweetheart table, have a head table! You and your spouse being the full center of attention will be diffused a little bit by your parents and, at the very least, your maid of honor and best man being there. Even though you will still be the center of attention, it will not feel like this as much.
  • Lastly, yes, you will be standing in front of a lot of people and, yes, you will be reciting your vows in front of them. All of this means that you will be married to the love of your life at the end! If nothing else helps you get through your stage fright, let that diffuse your fear a little bit. Your forever person will be right next to you the entire time you are in front of everyone!

Are you giving a speech for your best friend or sibling at our choice DFW mansion venue? No need to fear the speech, we’ve created the perfect outline for your speech and all you have to do is fill in your stories and friendship with your people.

  1. First off, be sure to introduce yourself! Everyone likes to know who is talking even if they won’t talk to you again for the rest of the reception. Once you’ve introduced yourself, go into how you know the bride or groom.
  2. After explaining how you know your respective friend you can begin to tell a funny story about them. Think hard about the story that you tell because you don’t want to embarrass them too much, and you definitely don’t want to make them feel ostracized on their own wedding day. A good, light-hearted story will do perfectly, though! After the laughs are done, transition into an endearing tone to end the story.
  3. Now that you’re back in endearing mode, go into how you heard about their partner and how you met them for the first time as a unit. You can talk about your newfound friendship with them as a couple or how much love you see between them when you are with them. This is the peak of the speech since it is both of their wedding days. You can make this emotional or keep it more light-hearted if you don’t want to make anyone cry.
  4. End your speech with a congratulations to your friend and their new spouse. Last but not least, don’t forget to toast to them and their new marriage.

The average toast is three to five minutes. That is plenty of time to talk about your friend, your friendship, and their newfound love in a concise, beautiful, and not rushed way.

There’s always so many lists of what you need to be doing or be planning for the week before your wedding. What about what you probably shouldn’t do? Lone Star Mansion, your choice Dallas luxury wedding venue, is here to share a few tips of what to avoid leading up to your big day.

You should avoid getting a facial or trying out beauty treatments for the first time within at least a week range of your big day. These can lead to dry skin, redness, and breakouts. It is best to do new things to your face a few weeks out. This will give your face enough time to heal if any type of a reaction happens.

Another thing you should avoid are drastic hair changes. Don’t dye your hair that bright red color you’ve always wanted to try right before your wedding. Even if you end up loving it, you may not like it in your wedding pictures 20 years down the line. When you look back on pictures you will not see the regular you, but someone you don’t recognize at all! With hair coloring, you shouldn’t get a major cut within the week of your wedding, either. You planned on your dress going with what your hair currently looks like, not what you will be changing it to.

Lastly, avoid staying up too late! It is easy to do the week of your wedding since you are finalizing last minute details, stressing, or even spending it with your bridesmaids. It will only stress you out more and make you tired on your wedding day, and no one wants that!

These tips are just our recommendations to you. If you want to go for that new hairstyle before your wedding, just do it! Don’t let us stop you. You will be the most beautiful bride and the center of attention no matter what.

Are you trying to figure out the perfect hairstyle for your wedding at our Fort Worth mansion venue, but just can’t find the right one? We’re here to give you some tips on finding the perfect hairstyle for your big day.

  • When choosing your hairstyle, be sure to coordinate it to what your dress looks like, as well as, the overall vibe of your wedding. If you are have a casual, laid back wedding, you may not want to have a tight chignon.
  • Work with the length that you have! If you have short or thin hair, don’t expect to be able to do a complicated updo. You’ll be able to have braids, a half-up half-down style, or just have your hair entirely down. If you have longer hair, opt for an updo, especially in the warmer months. It will keep you cooler throughout the day!
  • Lastly, be sure to choose a great stylist! This will make all the difference in just how perfect your hair will be on your wedding day. Look around, read reviews, and ask opinions of others because you want to make sure you have someone who knows what they are doing. A good stylist will want to have a pre-session with you to practice some of the looks that you might want on your big day. This will help them to know how your hair works and just how much time they will need to plan for.

However you choose to do your hair- french twist, chignon, fully down, and any other way- the Lone Star Mansion is so excited to see your full wedding day look!
