    amcarter- Thanks for the advice! We are going to drive to Galveston this weekend and look around at the different possibilities so I will definitely remember to check out the hotels. I was hoping to be able to hold the reception on the beach like we were going to do in Puerto Vallarta so I will be looking for the best way to do it that way.

    autjo- I think it's mainly just blue icing that makes your mouth blue! Lol
    I have had cakes with green and orange and it does not stain your mouth or teeth however testing it out is a good idea!

        Hey ladies! Sounds like everyone's planning is going well. So, after some serious stress the past 2 weeks our entire wedding has been turned around. That house we were planning on getting married at this coming May that I was so excited about...yea, we had to get a refund on it so XOXO if your interested in a big house jump on that one. PM me if you want the info. To make a really long story short FI is going into the military and we just dont know exactly when we will be able to hold the wedding so we decided to put it on hold until we find out what his orders are going to be. Its ok though, I think it will work out for the best and this means not everything will be up in the air.

        Info on Galveston weddings- Just got back from our 2nd visit there of shopping around for different places to use...I feel like I know that town backwards and forwards now. SOO much history!! Anyone wanting information on getting married at the beach, on the beach or at hotels there just let me know and I can email it all over to you. As quick little side notes though on information I have researched until I am green in the face: you can get married on ANY beach down there that is public without any type of permit b/c it is owned by Texas. You have to follow the beach rules which means NO vendors which basically means no reception. The house we were looking at you are on a private beach but the owner has given you permission so it is allowed HOWEVER alot of homes are on septic tanks or have parking issues which really limits you. I have tons and tons more info. but just wanted to give everyone a heads up on that.

        Galveston has now brought in sand to fill in the beaches and even Seawall looks fantastic now!

          Also, I have a very good connection that is here in Dallas who is looking to expand his portfolio for floral and destination weddings so if you guys need a good reccomendation on that let me know. Since he wants it for his portfolio he should be pretty reasonable.

            Does the house you were going to rent for May allow receptions inside the house? I just called someone about a beach house on the East end which is rented out by Prudential and she told me they did not allow weddings inside the house but that if I wanted to have a reception on the beach I would need to get a permit. I'm so confused, lol, do you have any advice or anything that may help clarify this?

              Just wanted to revive this thread! I'm a new DFW transplant, originally from Detroit. FI is from STL, and we figured everyone would have to travel one way or another- so why not travel someplace AWESOME! I'm really excited to get to know Texas in the meantime. Talk to "ya'll" later :)

                  good morning! I live in Houston Texas (just moved here two years ago from Boston - quite a change).
                  My fiance and I got engaged in Galveston - at Hotel Galvez - it was amazing!

                  We're in the same boat - family in Michigan, Boston, Chicago, DC...destination is the best way to go!

                    Hi Blana, I am from NJ but my FI lives and works in Laredo, TX. Right now we have worked our choices down to Mexico or the Barr Mansion in Austin.
