Why You Should Consider a DFW Mansion Wedding

We understand the benefits of a mansion wedding, but for many couples, it may seem out of reach—perhaps too expensive or elaborate. The cost of a mansion wedding, however, is often less than a traditional venue. Most wedding couples are surprised by this and excited at the prospect. One huge benefit is you don’t have to rent two venues when you choose a mansion wedding like Lone Star Mansion. Your wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception are all in one place. This means, of course, you don’t have to rent multiple venues or plan for duplicate décor items.

Another benefit is that you won’t have to engage with multiple contacts at multiple venues. We understand there are many moving parts to your big day. This means, of course, you’re dealing with a lot of people, coordinating dates, times, budgets, and preferences. When you have a mansion wedding, everything you’ll wish for is under one roof.

At Lone Star Mansion, you are provided a full staff for your special day. Our owner and general manager, Sara, brings more than 20 years’ experience and is a Certified Wedding and Event Planner; she, along with our event director, Nicole, work diligently with you to ensure your dream wedding comes to life. Our facilities manager, Jose, knows our property inside and out; everything you see his hands have touched, grown, trimmed, built or repaired.  He will ensure the grounds are beautifully landscaped and that everything is just right for your big day. You’ll love having your own executive chef in Rogelio, who creates amazing new dishes and perfects old ones with more than 30 years of experience in the food industry. Our staff is at your disposal to ensure no stone is unturned for your dream wedding.

Another benefit of a mansion wedding is its versatility during inclement weather. We have the ability to transition your plans indoors if your outdoor wedding forecast isn’t favorable. Not having a last-minute scramble to make allowances for unpredictable weather means less stress for you.

Mansion weddings allow for flexibility and offer full-service packages that are unique and affordable. Of course, we’re incredibly partial to ours and would love to chat with you about what you envision for your dream wedding.

It is almost wedding time at our DFW Mansion Venue and you’re still ironing out some of the details, including your something borrowed! What should you use for your something borrowed? We have a few ideas from the favorites we have seen in the past for you!

Your something borrowed doesn’t have to be something tangible. Use your parent’s first dance song or a snippet from their vows in your vows! Honoring your parents like this will mean so much to them! This will be a sweet way of adding them to the wedding. Your family will remember these moments for years to come and think on it fondly.

For something more tangible and wearable, borrow your mother’s or grandmother’s veil! This is a small detail but a detail that will definitely be noticed. It is another beautiful way to honor the women in your family and creates a bond that you will never forget.

Lastly, use the cake topper or cake knife that your parents used at their wedding! If you go with the cake topper, you might get a fun and unique vintage cake topper that will only add to your cake. Everyone will know the story behind it and make it incredibly sweet. If your family still has the knife that they used to cut their cake, you can use this, too! Get your last names or a piece from your vows engraved in it and this will become a family memento that it used down the line, as well.

We are so excited to see what you choose for your something borrowed, something blue, something old, and something new at the best DFW Mansion Venue! If you’re interested in having your big day at The Lone Star Mansion, contact us today to get the conversation started.

At The Lone Star Mansion Venue, we offer day-of coordinators with our packages! What exactly is the point of a day-of coordinator? You’ve gotten this far without a wedding coordinator, so can’t you do the same on your wedding day? We’re here to tell you all about why you need a day-of coordinator and why we provide one for you!

On the day of your wedding, your coordinator will become your best friend. If you have questions or need help, they will be there for you! Any issues that might come up, they are there to deal with. If people have questions, they can take them to the coordinator instead of you.

On top of questions and help, your day-of coordinator will be there for you to figure out timing and places for everyone! Your coordinator will be with you from rehearsal to down the aisle to ensuring that your reception goes smoothly. The day-of coordinator will make sure that everyone knows who they walk own with, where they will stand, and the tempo to walk to down the aisle at.

The goal of having a day-of coordinator is to make sure that everyone, but most of all you, have a stress free day. We want you to focus on your big day as a happy day, not a day full of stress and planning. We want to give you this stress-free part of your day by offering day-of coordinators with our packages. This will also make it so that you have one less vendor to find on your own.

We would love to talk you through some of our packages and other amenities that we offer with each package! While we are so excited about our day-of coordinators, we have other amenities, as well. Contact us to find out more.

2020 Wedding Decor Trends

March 17, 2020

Fort Worth Wedding

Are you having a wedding in 2020? Here are all of the trends that we are seeing this year in wedding decor! Some range from fun and unique to cute and simple. We can’t wait to see if these get used at our Fort Worth Wedding Venue!

One of the more fun and out-there trends of 2020 is implementing disco balls in your wedding decor! No, but seriously. We’re not talking just a disco ball above the dance floor, but full-on decorating with them! Creating clumps of different sized ones with tulle or florals mixed in creates a fun and unique atmosphere during your reception.

Color blocking, which is using contrasting colors side by side to create an eye-catching pattern, is alos more popular this year! We saw this popping up in 2019, but 2020 is the year of color blocking. Create a color-blocked pattern for behind your sweetheart table or for a unique photo booth to create stunning pictures.

Signage on glass is IN! Think phrases, table charts, table numbers, and anything else that will be written. You can go for normal glass, but don’t forget about glass vases, and jars, too! This will create a stunning and simple table scape on each table.

Lastly, edible florals! You can use edible florals on your cake, in your signature cocktails, in ice cubes, on top of other desserts, and anywhere else, as well! They make a beautiful addition to any drink or dessert item, so don’t be afraid to use them.

Are you nterested in having your upcoming wedding at our venue? We would love to talk with you about your upcoming big day to see if we have open dates! Contact us today to get the conversation started or to set up a tour of our Fort Worth Wedding venue!
