Texas Girls?

Recommended Posts

Any Texans out there? I'm still debating to have a destination wedding (Azul Sensatori in RM) or a wedding in Dallas (?). Does anyone have any ideas about Dallas locations that aren't the same ole same ole thing?

I am a Texas girl....there are quite a few that live in the Dallas area.

 

I live in San Antonio, so I can't help you, but I will say that if money is one reason you want a DW, havng a wedding in Dallas will cost A LOT more. But, if it's not a matter of money, then I say follow your heart and have it where you want to have it! :)

 

We are having a DW because if we had it here, it would cost A LOT because we would have 250 plus guests...this way we are only having 35. :)

Same ole thing as in? Like a church? I don't have a lot of ideas for you lol hence me going to Cancun. If I was going to have it out here though I was thinking about going to P.K. and having it at the top of a cliff overlooking the water.

I found a few good ideas on the Knot website. But, can't remember exactly what they were. I know they were all in the downtown Dallas area. I believe maybe Museum of Arts was one or the Arboretum...really cool places. But, very expensive. I would have loved to do something like that, but definitely not in the budget as we are opening a Philly Cheessteak Franchise. Destination is our way to go. I think I may have them saved. I'll look when I get home and post if I find them.

Dallas Arboretum Home Page

The Dallas Arboretum is definitely a great place to have an outside, different style if wedding/reception. I've gone to a wedding there, and it's absolutley beautiful!

 

Belo Mansion & Pavilion

 

The Belo Mansion is also a hot spot for a non-church wedding. We've also been to a wedding/reception there and it was lovely!

 

City Place :: Dallas, TX

 

City Place is also a great place for a wedding and/or reception.

 

That's all I can think of right now. JaimeLynn is also very familiar with the city, so she will most likely chime in. Let me know if you have any questions.

Grr...I typed it out and it logged me off.

 

Anyways, I helped my sister plan her wedding a few years ago. She couldn't find anything! She had alot of Dallas cops though and didn't want it in the city. So my previous boss had gotten married on the canal in Las Colinas. It was so pretty. The two guy who owns the terrace are from Switzerland and they're master chef, so they do all the food AND the cake. And the bar. So you have less vendors! Oh and they have all the linen and plates and such and prety candlebras. And it's so gourgeous. She got married in the cobblestone garden outside and then they moved inside for dancing and dinner. Then they rode away on a Gondola while an the Gondolier guy sang and we had sparklers. Anyways it's really nice. We got ready across the street at the Omni Mandalay and they stayed the night their and flew out the next morning. Anyways the site is

Venetian Terrace

I was going to suggest the Arboretum, but I see it's already been mentioned here a couple of times!

 

I wonder if you could hold it at the Nasher out in the sculpture garden...?

 

It's hard to say - hence why we are flying away to PV for our wedding! wink.gif

 

Have you been to any local bridal shows? I think you might find some unique ideas there. Good luck! :)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
