If you’re familiar with the Burleson Outdoor Wedding Venue, Lonestar Mansion, you probably know and love our very recognizable and breathtakingly beautiful entrance. We’ve become known for our extravagant white columns and front porch, but what you may not know about is our equally beautiful poolside outdoor space that has become increasingly more popular in 2020 with social distancing guidelines and restrictions.

Our property is more than the gorgeous white mansion, take a look around at a few of our favorite Burleson outdoor wedding venue shots. From outdoor ceremonies to outdoor cocktail hours and receptions, our space is flexible to fit your event needs.

Burleson Wedding Trends 2021Burleson Wedding Trends 2021

About this time every year, we start predicting and anticipating the trends that we’ll see in weddings next week. While this year is different in almost every way, we are still looking ahead (maybe now more than ever) and talking about what to expect

2021 is currently being talked about as the “Year of Weddings.” So many people have had to reschedule or postpone planning their events with hopes of being able to gather more freely next year, that we know it will be a wedding packed year. That being said, the first trend that we are anticipating is weddings any day of the week. Gone are the days of limiting yourselves to reserving one of the Saturdays of the year, we are seeing wedding bookings on Friday, Saturday and Sunday throughout the year – but also even seeing some middle of the week events hit the calendar.

After being on lockdown or quarantine and following social distancing guidelines and regulations for the majority of 2020, people are and will be ready to let loose! We’re all dreaming of the days where we can hug our loved ones and celebrate without the fear of what may happen. We’ll likely still see a lot of micro weddings and intimate affairs, but we’re preparing for the “maxi-wedding” as well, “where everything from your outfits to your music is oversized and extravagant.” (says Hitched.co)

We’re also preparing for an unmatched experience. We know some brides (and grooms) have been engaged and thinking about their weddings for many many months, even years – so we expect to see more experiences and over the top details than ever before. From extravagant decor to immersive experiences, weddings will likely be the first big events people get back to celebrating regularly, so we expect to see new ideas that we’ve never seen before.

Microweddings and Minimonies

Microweddings and Minimonies

Your dream wedding doesn’t have to be postponed in the wake of COVID-19; in fact, many couples are choosing to have microweddings and minimonies. These fresh trends offer socially distanced and intimate settings to get hitched now.

As venues reopen with partial occupancy, intimate gatherings are not only possible—they’re preferable. They’re scaled for social distancing yet feel roomy, and they can be very budget-friendly, and not having to wait longer to get married, well, that’s the icing on the wedding cake.

We’re all emerging from the pandemic with gratitude for the little things in life. Why not a microwedding or a minimony at Lone Star Mansion? Here’s how to tell which one may be right for you…

A microwedding is a wedding celebration with fewer than 50 guests in attendance and includes both a ceremony and a reception. Your celebration can be as simple or grand as you’d like. For those who feel the financial impact from coronavirus, a microwedding is a savvy way to scale back with a more affordable option. With fewer guests in attendance, the happy couple is able to focus on the details and enjoy the intimacy of their special day.

A minimony is considerably smaller in size with about ten guests in attendance to celebrate the commitment between you and your partner. It provides a snapshot of events to mark your special day. Many couples are choosing to have a minimony on their original wedding date, to be followed by a sequel wedding in the near future. This is a great option for those who want to celebrate their love now and still have their dream wedding and reception down the road.

The gift of microweddings and minimonies is that you’re able to let your hair down. Both of these tend to feel more relaxed and intimate, taking pressure off everyone—especially you.
