Choosing a wedding dress for your cold weather wedding isn’t nearly as hard as you might think it is. Your favorite Fort Worth mansion venue has some tips to find the perfect dress to help you stand out against the cold of the winter while still staying warm and beautiful.

Dresses with lots of embroidery are perfect for winter-time. They give off the vibe of warmth, while still looking elegant and beautifully stitched together. Having a dress with lots of embroidery is its own accessory altogether. If you choose an embroidered dress with sleeves, you’ll be fully set for the entire day with accessories and warmth!

Add a white or light-colored faux fur coat or stole to your ensemble! It will not only keep you warm during your big day, but will fit right into the season. When you take pictures outside of our white mansion, it will only add to the grandeur of our venue and your big day. You can also keep using it after your wedding day!

Change it up with a cream color dress. The color of winter is white, so to stand out from a snowy background, or even just the blue-toned winter, choose a cream colored dress! This will not only stand out color-wise, but will give you a naturally warmer glow than the outside. It will be loved on your big day, as well as, in your pictures for years to come.

There are so many more dresses that are perfect for a winter wedding, these are just a few dresses we love. Use your style to help you make the perfect dress choice.

Rules to Bringing a Plus One

Are you going to a Burlseon mansion wedding at Lone Star Mansion and you’re unsure about the ettiequte of bringing a plus-one? We have got you covered with all the information and unspoken rules that you could need about bringing a plus-one to that upcoming wedding.

  • First things first, listen to your invitation! If it says that you can bring a plus one, you can. If it doesn’t say anything about a plus-one, it is safe to assume that you did not receive a plus-one. The reasons for this are numerous, so it is best not to question their choice and to just go along with it. You don’t need a date to a wedding for it to be great!
  • If your guest was named on the invitation, your plus-one is for that specific person. If your significant other can’t go, it does not mean that you can just substitute your best friend in place. If a specific person is named, it is as if they got their own invitation and you would not just pass along your whole invitation to the next person.
  • Lastly, think about who you’re bringing! If you recently started dating the bride’s brother’s ex, it might be best to opt out of bringing a plus-one entirely. The wedding is about the couple getting married, not about who you are choosing to bring as a wedding date. Respect the couple and who you are bringing as your plus-one if you are invited to bring one.

We hope that you are just as excited about the wedding that you are coming to celebrate as we are to host it at our beautiful mansion. Are you still looking for a venue for your wedding, too? Contact us to talk about our venue for your wedding!

As the best Austin venue, we would love to help you find your other vendors, as well! Selecting vendors can be an intimidating task when you begin, but it does not have to be! As your best Austin venue, we want to be by your side during this wedding planning and choosing process.

  • Before you meet with any vendors, set your budget in advance! This will probably help to narrow down your list of possibilities at least a little bit. Be realistic, but know your priorities. If you and your fiancé are foodies, make a little bit more room for the catering budget. This is an important step before going into meet with vendors so that you can be upfront with them about your financial expectations.
  • Before, or even after meetings, know that social media and reviewing websites are your friend! We all know that people don’t hold back on the internet, and the same is true with reviews. If 12 out of 15 reviews say that the vendor was great, or vice versa, that might give you a much needed answer as to if you will use them. You want vendors that are team players, that will work with you.
  • Don’t be afraid to negotiate with the vendors! Maybe your perfect baker is a little over your budget; tell them that and see if anything can be changed or adjusted. You never know, and it never hurts to try to cut a deal.
  • Last but not least, ask all the questions and take all the notes during any meetings or phone calls with vendors. Even when you are just doing research through reviews and websites, notes will help exponentially later on. Your future self will thank you when all of the information you could want is all in one place.
