Venues

I'm having a hard time finding a place to get married and to have the reception. All of the nice venues are over an hour and a half away because I live in midlothian (South South Dallas). I want a venue that allows outside alcohol and has a some character. Any ideas? I'm open to South Dallas , Arlington, Fort Worth.

    Have you tried Lofty Spaces? Its a cool funky loft kinda thing in the south Dallas area. They allow outside alcohol & outside catering but he has an onsite caterer as well. He's got another building as well-off the grid-but its smaller.

    How about Old Red Museum in the Old red Courthouse on Elm in Dallas?

    You can check out Winfrey Point on White Rock Lake. That's where I had my reception but it books up really fast.

    Here is the link to the pictures on my photographer's blog http://kandsphotography.net/2010/05/07/trevor-and-elizabeth-wedding-at-winfrey-point-part-2/

    I also agree with PP about Old Red, its gorgeous

    I'm having mine at the Trinity River Audubon Center. Its not really a wedding venue per se but they have done weddings there before. They allow outside everything and their price is pretty reasonable. They are south of Dallas off of Loop 12.

    i having my reception at the walnut creek country club in mansfield. we are getting married at the church, but there is a place at the country club to get married. it is a neat pavallion or you can do it outside on the golf course.

    not sure of your budget, but another amazing place just opened up in mansfield called www.aristideevents.com/">Aristide Event Center . it is really nice!!! and you can get married there as well. it opened up after we booked the country club and was a little out of our price range for only 55 guest, but WOW!

    Bridget,

    I have toured that place, but the only thing that impressed me was the brides and grooms rooms as well as the bathrooms.Outside there was a small area to get married that could only fit around 100 people.I'm planning on getting married in april and i'm afraid it might rain. Inside there wasn't a place to get married it was just a large reception room.

    When I toured the place I just felt that the lady was scattered. I just didn't like the vibe. Everything was extra and the place was on the higher end of what I was wanting to spend.

    Texas Treasure, I'm going to have to look at the place! I think it is very unique.Thanks for the tip!


    ewinkler- That place is to far. I love it though.

    PattChow- I'll have to look in to that venue.

    Thank you for the suggestions :)

    There is a new chapel in Fort Worth called Belltower Chapel and Garden.  That is who we are using.
