The time of year for outdoor weddings is coming back up, so we wanted to let you know about some outdoor wedding venue tips! As your favorite Burleson mansion venue, we are here to help you out. Keep reading to learn more about outdoor weddings.

The first tip that we have for you is to be prepared and have back-up option. This is something that is great about our venue! Not only do we have our stunning grounds, but we have plenty of space within our mansion and other parts of our venue for an indoor wedding. Having this back-up option is so important, especially in Texas, because the weather can change at any point in time.

You should have plenty of refreshments for guests! Be sure to have water, with or without fruit in it, that people can get before the ceremony and as they are leaving the ceremony to go to the reception. You can offer other refreshments too, like an iced tea or lemonade. This will help everyone to be able to focus on you in the Texas heat.

Lastly, don’t forget to continue your decor throughout your outdoor wedding! It is easy to forget to decorate in the outdoors, but this will keep your entire wedding tied together with the same aesthetic. Bringing in your flowers along the aisle, colors through rugs along the aisle, or through the backdrop of your ceremony. There are countless ways to bring your decor into your outdoor wedding.

The Lone Star Mansion loves this season of the year because of all of the outdoor weddings. We would love to talk with you about having your outdoor wedding at our Burleson mansion venue! Contact us today to get the conversation started about touring and your upcoming wedding date.

DFW wedding venue

DFW Mansion Venue

You’ve booked your favorite DFW mansion venue, The Lone Star Mansion, for your big day and now it is time for the next steps! One of the very next steps is choosing and asking who will be standing next to you on the day of your wedding. We have a few tips on how to ask your best friends to be in your wedding, standing next to you.

  • Before you ask your best friends to be your bridesmaids, remember that saying yes to being a bridesmaid is a big responsibility – time-wise and financially. Keeping this in mind will prepare you to better ask your friends to be a part of your big day. You can do this with all of your friends at once or one at a time!
  • To ask someone simply, take them out to dinner or coffee and foot the bill! Asking your friend to be a bridesmaid will come naturally in this setting and you will be able to be excited together for the rest of the meal or coffee date!
  • Another way to ask your friend to be a bridesmaid is by giving them a box of goodies! Add a face mask, a journal, tea, a bottle of wine, and a card. This list can be anything you’d like it to be; these are just suggestions. For an extra fun step, create your own label for something in the box, like the wine, that asks the question every girl wants to hear, “will you be my bridesmaid?”
  • You can also ask your bridesmaids by simpler gifts! Think about getting mugs that say bridesmaid on them or a bouquet of flowers with a little note attached. This little gesture will mean so much to everyone who you ask to be a part of your wedding day!

If you are set on planning your own wedding and not hiring a wedding planner from the get-go, we have a few tips and tricks to help you with your planning! Wedding planning can be stressful, but you can do it and have the best wedding. Take a look at these tips from your favorite Burleson luxury venue!

  • First up, make sure that you are ready to be organized. Invest in a wedding planning binder, and begin making lists for each month of wedding planning and what you want to have accomplished within those months.
  • Stick to your lists! Make your monthly lists not only your lists but your goals! Stick to these so that everything progresses how you want it to and you don’t get overwhelmed. You will appreciate your diligence in the long run even if you don’t appreciate it at the moment!
  • Do research on timelines of when to find, interview, and hire potential vendors so that you are not doing it too early, and definitely not too late. Knowing the timelines of when to find each vendor will help you to hire the exact vendors you want! Remember, at The Lone Star Mansion, you don’t have to find a caterer because we have our in-house catering for you.
  • Last but not least, be ready to have one of our day-of coordinators jump in and help you! You don’t want to be worrying about logistics on the day of your wedding which is why we include day-of coordinators in our wedding packages.

Ceremony Backdrop Inspiration

Are you trying to figure out what your ceremony backdrop should be on your wedding day? There’s so much inspiration out there, but we’ve compiled our favorites that we’ve seen at our Burleson Mansion Venue! We truly think that each of these would look phenomenal in our venue depending on which part of our venue you choose to have your ceremony at.

  • Florals and greenery are a popular backdrop right now. There’s just so much that you can do with them! Make them minimal or maximal, whichever is your preference, all florals, no florals, the options are truly endless. With this organic option, you can do tendrils directly on walls arches, or even just around the ground!
  • Another option is using butcher paper as your backdrop. This can be whatever color you want, whether a dusty pink or a simple and elegant grey, butcher paper can be the perfect minimalist backdrop. You can also have words or a phrase written onto it for an extra special message. The best part about this backdrop is that you can take it home and use it as decor afterward!
  • Are you a little bit extra? Using tinsel as your backdrop might be the perfect option for you. It adds some sparkle and shimmer behind you that will be perfect in your pictures. You can easily find different colors of tinsel on Etsy!
  • Lastly, we love the trend of using geometric shaped wood as backdrops. We love seeing all of the shapes that people choose whether it be a triangle, a hexagon, or any shape! Adding some greenery or florals to this will only add to how beautiful this backdrop is!
