Fort Worth Mansion Venue

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!

As your choice Burleson wedding venue, Lone Star Mansion wanted to address the question of asking your partner’s parents for permission before proposing. Everyone has different takes on this, and we are here to tell you about why you might consider doing so.

So, should you ask your partner’s parents for permission to propose? Yes, maybe, and no. Some people expect it while others hate the tradition. Ask your significant other to see what they think about the tradition amidst all of the other talk of your proposal. If they say it is important to them, you should probably go ahead and do so. If they say they hate the tradition, you probably shouldn’t. Respect your partner’s opinion of this practice.

Asking for your partner’s parents permission to propose seems like a thing of the past, but it can be brought into the future by thinking of it differently. Rather than viewing the practice as the parents or father “owning” your partner, view it as respecting the parents. They raised your soon-to-be fiancé, and bringing them into the fold will really show that you respect them and want them to be involved and in the know.

If you hate the idea of asking the parents permission to marry, don’t ask for permission! Ask for their blessing, instead. They will still respect that you had the courage to come to them and ask. They will also love that they are in the know about the proposal and might even be able to help with some of the last details.

All in all, don’t feel pressure to ask or not to ask for the societal standpoint. It is your relationship, your proposal, and your wedding. Let the choice of asking their parents be between you and your significant other.

We all know the phrase: “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.” Are you unsure of what to use for your “something old” at our DFW mansion wedding venue? If you’re at a loss for what to use, we have all the ideas for you on your big day!

Use a family members jewelry! Whether it is additional rings that you add into your look, the necklace you wear, or a hairpiece, this is the perfect way for your something old. Look your your grandmother’s old jewelry box or your mother’s heirlooms from her grandmother to find these pieces. If you love the idea of using jewelry as your something old, but no one has any, opt for a vintage store! Your something old doesn’t have to be from a relative at all.

Another item that you can use is a veil. The same way with jewelry, you can use a relative’s or find an old one in a vintage store! Old veils are beautiful and a great way to incorporate your “something old.”

Lastly, no one said that your “something old” has to be something tangible. Use an old poem that means a lot to you in your vows. You could also use your parent’s vows incorporated into your own, or their vows completely! It is fully your choice how you would do this.

There are so many more things that you can add to your wedding to be your “something old.” These are just a few of our favorites that the Lone Star Mansion wanted to share with you. We are so excited to see what you use your your wedding at our mansion venue!

Premier DFW Mansion Venue

We’re in the age of the computer which means that everything is going digital. This includes things like wedding invitations and save the dates. This might be confusing to navigate, but this premier DFW mansion venue is here to help!

Just because clicking send means that the save the date will go through automatically, does not mean that you should procrastinate it later than the normal time frame of sending save the dates! You should still plan on around 6 months out. You have to think of those family and friends that will be traveling in and will need to make arrangements and take time off.

Have your online save the date cards match the formality of your wedding! If you’re having a casual wedding, use more casual wording and a more casual template design. If you’re having a black tie affair at our mansion venue, maybe opt out of sending email save the dates. You want the guests’ first interaction with your wedding to set what the mood will actually be.

You should also keep online save the dates in mind if you’re looking to cut your budget somewhere. This will take off the design cost, printing cost, and stamp cost! There will be a nice chunk of money that will be freed up if you choose to opt for online save the dates rather than traditional printed ones.

You may be all good on your save the dates now, but are you still looking for your perfect wedding venue? Lone Star Mansion would love to talk to you about our packages and why are the best venue for your big day. Contact us to get the conversation started about your wedding day! We would love to answer any and all questions that you might have.
