Organizing your seating chart for your wedding reception can lead to some challenges. You will have to work to avoid potential personality clashes between guests, figure out where to place attendees without dates, and find a way to mix in different groups of people. Of course, there is also the matter of what to do with you and your partner! Many couples elect to set up a special sweetheart table where they can sit separate from everyone else. Other couples will create a “primary” table where they will be joined by close family members and/or the best man and maid or matron of honor. (more…)

Creating the perfect wedding atmosphere is about more than just your decorations, or your music. The size of your guest list can have a real impact on your overall wedding experience. After all, it can be difficult to pull of an “intimate” wedding experience when you have two hundred guests on hand to celebrate and wish you well! A smaller wedding can be better for your budget, and it can feel more personal, but if you want a big celebration, you need plenty of people on hand. Because we offer venues with different capacities, we can help you make the most of a larger or smaller wedding! All of our settings provide you with a great view of the surrounding Texas Hill Country. (more…)

While the tuxedo offers a classic look for a groom at his wedding, this may be a poor fit for your groom, or for the event you want to plan. What should you do for menswear if you want to break from traditional attire? There are several factors that you can look to when it comes to making ideal style choices for the groom, and the groomsmen, who will stand at the altar. You can experiment with suits instead of classic tuxedos, explore different color choices, or select a more casual outfit to go along with a rustic wedding. While you can exercise some flexibility, one thing you should definitely do is look for a style that matches your dress, so that the two of you truly feel like a pair on your special day. (more…)
