Do You Offer Tours?

Yes! Our team would love to walk you through the different spaces available on our grounds and help you find the perfect spot for your wedding ceremony and reception.

Can I Use an Outside Caterer?

The Lone Star Mansion is teamed up with a wonderful chef who makes mouthwatering food. Because of this, we do not allow outside catering. However, if you do not see a menu you love, we are more than happy to work with you to ensure you are getting the best food for your wedding day.

What About Other Outside Vendors?

Lone Star Mansion has an onsite vendor that we work with closely for the sale of alcohol.

Other than that, our team wants you to be able to work with those whom you love! So if you have a special florist, photographer, or baker to make your wedding cake, we would love them to work with you. If you are not sure what vendors to look for, our team has a list of preferred vendors that work closely with our team! We know that they can help make your day the best day ever!

Is There a Cake Cutting or Corkage Fee?

Absolutely not!

Can We Rent a Room at the Mansion?

The Lone Star Mansion does not rent out rooms to our brides/grooms or guests, but we are more than happy to refer you to some nearby hotels. Some of these hotels offer a shuttle service to ensure that your guests can get to the Lone Star Mansion safely and on time. 

What Happens If It Rains on the Day of Our Wedding?

Our team has multiple options to move your wedding indoors to keep you and your guests dry. All of our weddings are planned with a contingency plan for this purpose, to make sure that your special day has no unnecessary headaches. 

Are Pets Allowed To Be Part of Our Wedding Day?

Yes, they are! The Lone Star Mansion team understands that pets are family, and as such, are more than welcome to be a part of your big day. However, we do have breed and size restrictions for safety purposes, and they will not be allowed to be inside any of the buildings. For more information, reach out to our team!

Will There Be Other Weddings Going On at the Same Time as Ours?

Never! The estate is reserved for you. No one is allowed on the property the day of your wedding except for staff, your guests, your vendors, and of course, you!
