DFW Wedding Venue

DFW Wedding Venue

It’s officially summertime. For some that means going to the pool and getting a tan and for others that means going to your DFW wedding venue to get hitched! We are so excited about all of the weddings that we will see this summer at Lone Star Mansion, and are here to tell you about some fun ways to make your summer wedding really feel like summertime.

  1. Take advantage of the season and use bright colors! Every other season of the year favors darer or paler colors, but summer calls for vibrant pinks, yellows, and greens. Decorate your ceremony and reception in florals and other decorations that utilize this.
  2. For example, use bright florals that you wouldn’t use any other time of the years, like sunflowers and palm leaves! The colors on these two are bright and fun, a perfect pairing for the summer.
  3. Apart from flowers, have fun with the small decorations. Use fruit, like pineapples and citrus fruits, throughout your decor. It is a fun twist that you can really only do at this time of year. If you are not about fruit, spice up your ice coolers. Rather than having a bucket of ice, make a bucket made of ice! You can even freeze flowers in the ice to continue your color theme.
  4. For your bigger decorations, invest in a balloon arch or balloon wall! These have become incredibly popular and are a fun touch to any reception. Make sure to also use all of the string lights, especially if your wedding is outdoors! It creates a fun, light ambiance no matter what time of day it is. Lastly, do something unique with the chairs; rather than using tulle on them, use macrame. This will feel airy and add a nice boho touch to your DFW wedding venue.

Fort Worth Wedding Venue

There are so many unique ways to add floral to your Fort Worth wedding venue, and we wanted to showcase a few of our favorites.

  1. One trend that we have been seeing more again recently is feathers! There are multiple ways that this trend cane done. You can add feathers to your bouquet for an extra texture and color pop. Secondly, you could even have a full feather bouquet if you want something that will really stand out and make your wedding’s aesthetic unique.
  2. Another trend we love is using unique fillers. Rather than your typical greenery behind the flowers, doing something different like using wheat type plants, air plants, and even cotton can make your bouquet stand out. This is also a way to change what colors are presented in your bouquet. If you do not want green to be in your hand, using cotton as a filler would be an interesting way to avoid green.
  3. Paper bouquets are coming back as a fun and personal alternative to the regular bouquet. With this style, you can make the flowers incredibly real looking, or opt for less real. You can use pages of your favorite book, or your written out vows to create this look to make it even more personal. One perk to this trend is that you will always be able to keep this rather than it dying after a week.
  4. You can add fruits or vegetables for a fun texture change. This might sound out there, but pomegranates would add a beautiful new texture and color to a bouquet of pinks and reds.
  5. Lastly, does the cost of a bouquet stress you out? There is a new trend of rental bouquets! This allows you to rent, usually silk flowers, a full bouquet for a fraction of the price that you would buy one from a florist for.

Burleson Event Venue

There are always new trends coming about in the wedding world, and the newest trend is one that we are excited about, brunch weddings!

We all love brunch, and it would be even more enjoyable with everyone you love surrounding you on such a happy day. Let our Burleson event venue help you couple your big day with everyone’s favorite past time here in North Texas. Are you looking to ramp up the uniqueness of your wedding? Maybe you are wanting a cozier or more casual affair, or even just wanting a different type of menu for your big day? With brunch weddings comes a whole new ball game of food, style, and colors to choose from.

At Lone Star Mansion we love this trend! Below are just a few reasons why a brunch wedding might be good for you:

  • Not your traditional wedding food. Talk about unique food options, a brunch wedding allows you to incorporate items like pastries, migas, or french toast.
  • A brunch wedding is perfect for a more casual or laid back couple. A midday wedding creates a more mellow environment for everyone involved—you and the guests. You won’t feel the need to wear sequins or throw a crazy dance party at the end of your wedding, but still feel free to!
  • Another great thing about brunch weddings at Lone Star Mansion is that it is a less expensive option for those on a budget who still want to have their dream wedding at their dream venue.

We would love to talk to you about more perks of having a brunch wedding at Lone Star Mansion. Contact us for more information, we look forward to hearing from you.

This trend has made our Burleson event venue very popular during the holidays. More and more couples are sharing their wedding day with a holiday, but is this trend for you? Read our guide below and ask us if you would like your wedding to be during a holiday.

Sharing your Anniversary

Everyone likes an easy to remember anniversary date. And most couples feel like it’s extra special to share their anniversary date each year with a holiday. Just be aware that your anniversary plans may have to compete with other events, obligations and family members each year surrounding that holiday.

More Time

A wedding near a holiday can give you and your family more time off to visit and celebrate. For instance some people get the week between Christmas and New Years off in addition to their two weeks paid vacation. That’s extra time off that doesn’t affect your honeymoon time as well. There’s other extended weekends like Labor Day and 4th of July that a great holidays for extended celebrations.


The flip side to this is that holidays make costs go up so it’s important to factor that in to the budget. In addition, you might have to book things earlier like hotels and certain vendors to make sure they have availability. If you’re planning a holiday wedding, be sure to let guests know as soon as possible so they can budget for the extra cost as well if they are booking a hotel or flight.
