I've been trying to do as much research prior to actually looking at some venues that way I don't spend what time I do have running around all over DFW and the surrounding areas. Thus far I have only seen Noah's in Irving, Bingham House in Mckinney, Fairy Tale Manor in Frisco. FH came with me to FTM, I went by myself to Noah's, and my mother came with me to BH. If anyone has any info, reviews, advice on the these other venues please help. My mind is just clustered with images, and addresses, and just everything. Guest count will be around 85-100. Alcohol a must. Minor DIY okay. Would prefer outside catering option, but not a dealbreaker. Would LOVE an outside ceremony option or even reception option. Dates are flexible. Would prefer a Saturday night but Friday is fine too depending on pricing. Budget, ideally with everything, would like to be under $10k no more than $12k. If it ends up being a more DIY venue would it be within budget to hire someone to do decor and such?
The Windsor at Hebron Park
Omni (either Fort Worth or Las Colinas)
FH prefers Fort Worth over Dallas.
Ladies please help
What few pictures I've seen for 809 it seems hit and miss about how it looks. I don't know why but I am more stressed about what my guests will think of the decor and venue and if they have fun as well as how many will actually show, more than anything else it seems; hence my determination about the perfect venue. BH was alright, it was my first venue to look at so I wasn't sure what all to expect. Noah's was nice inside but wasn't as large of a venue as I thought and didn't offer an outside ceremony option, however, the grooms suite would win FH over any day. Fairy Tale Manor was nice, but didn't care for the outdoor space due to the fact that it backed up to a neighborhood, plus FH already stated if our wedding ends fairly early he wants to go continue the party elsewhere and FTM has no nearby bars or hotels and BH doesn't really either.
