How Your Color Choices Contribute To Your Wedding Look

Your wedding colors can be prominently featured throughout your wedding, or used sparingly to create a subtler, more formal atmosphere. As with any decision when it comes to creating the right look for your wedding, the way you approach color will matter. While bolder, contrasting colors can be vivid and fun, a muted approach can give your celebration an elegant feeling that you can appreciate. Because the venues we offer couples are accommodating, and take advantage of the area’s surrounding natural beauty, you can enjoy success working with a wide range of color choices. (more…)

Having a vision for your wedding decorations can help you connect with the right vendors, and establish the right look for your special day. Sometimes, your ideal wedding can require decorative pieces that you are better off creating yourself than purchasing. Brides commit to DIY wedding decorations for many reasons. This approach can lead to potential savings, and it can allow you to establish a rustic atmosphere. Of course, one obvious benefit is that your ceremony and reception can stand apart from other weddings when you put together your own decorations instead of purchasing them. (more…)

While some couples try to keep their guest list smaller, to enjoy a more intimate experience, you may be eager to invite more people to join you on your wedding day. There are some challenges that come with a larger guest list. This approach can obviously impact your budget, and you can find it more difficult to efficiently provide dinner, drinks, and dessert to everyone at your reception. On the other hand, your larger guest list means fewer tough choices when it comes to finalizing your guest list, and you can enjoy a livelier celebration. Texas Old Town offers larger venue spaces for weddings that plan to welcome more people. (more…)

The presence of your best man and groomsmen at your wedding will obviously be important to your groom. The guys in your wedding party can also help you, particularly on the wedding day itself. With the exception of the bachelor party, it can seem like the men involved in your wedding have less to do during pre-wedding events. With that said, they can be more available to pitch in and make sure everything goes smoothly during the setup of your ceremony and reception areas while the bridal party prepares to walk down the aisle. Because Texas Old Town provides sixteen hour access to venues as part of our standard amenities package, you have plenty of room to welcome the guys to put on their attire at the site before stepping up to help.

While it might be easy to just extend a plus-one to all of your wedding guests, you may be unable to do so for a number of reasons. You may be at risk for going over the number of guests you can fit into your venue space, or you could have a hard time budgeting for a scenario where all of your unattached friends and family members bring dates. Even though it can feel awkward to ask someone not to bring a date, it could be what is best for your wedding celebration. (more…)

Finding the perfect gown for your wedding day is an important part of your planning experience. The search for the right dress can even become a sort of intimate pre-wedding event in itself, as you and a few close people browse boutiques and shops together. As exciting as it can be to find that perfect dress, remember that you are not quite done with planning your wedding look. You will need to decide what you should do about your hair and makeup.

Will every single person in your wedding party know when to walk down the aisle, where to stand, and what to do when your wedding ceremony is complete? When you properly plan your rehearsal, you can ensure that everyone has the information they need, and are familiar with their role, on your special day. Impress upon everyone in your wedding party that the rehearsal is important, and make sure you have enough time between your rehearsal and rehearsal dinner to move through the arrival and departure sequences several times. To make your rehearsal dinner more convenient, you can actually welcome everyone to enjoy a meal at your Texas Old Town venue! (more…)
