Dallas Wedding Receptions


The most important day of your life is drawing near and you want to plan it to perfection. Everything has to be just right, the chapel, the dresses, the food and most importantly the wedding reception. Specifically if you are planning a Dallas wedding reception, there are many areas that you need to look into in creating the right theme, the right ambience as well as to ensure that all your guests' needs are taken care of.

The first thing in planning Dallas wedding receptions is the search for the right location. However, before you can make a list of probable venues, you first need to determine your budget for the occasion. If possible, it would be best if you could breakdown your costs of the wedding reception to categories such as food, hall rentals, wedding favors, flower arrangements, music, etc. With this, you will then have an exact feel of what you can afford to pay for in rentals. This will also put you in a better position for negotiations.

If you are on a tight budget then perhaps you should consider a Dallas wedding reception held in your own backyard. This way, you save on hall rental costs and do not have restrictions on catering your own food for the occasion. On the other hand, if you do have an adequate budget to spare then you have more choices in terms of the location.

A wedding reception in Dallas can be held in many types of venues. If you prefer to plan everything from scratch, then you could probably rent a basic hall. Then get relatives and friends to help you with hall decorations and food preparation, and get a separate vendor to rent your tables and chairs. With this, you can probably consider renting a school hall or your local town hall for this occasion.

Alternatively, you can also enquire with halls that have been designed and built just for hosting wedding receptions. For example, the Cityplace is a great unique Dallas wedding reception location. They have incorporated a choice of classic design décor or a garden atmosphere during the daytime which is transformed into a starry night theme at night.

Especially for couples who have the right budget and have a preference for grandeur. Hall of State would probably be the most romantic venue to host both wedding ceremonies as well as wedding receptions in Dallas. This elegant hall boasts of facilities which are fit for royalty. It is truly the ultimate wedding venue for a grand wedding. The Grand Hall with the high ceilings and pillars flanked by wall art painting is just exquisite for wedding ceremonies. In fact, the Hall of Heroes can be configured for a wedding reception after the wedding ceremony.

Finally, a common venue for a wedding reception in Dallas would be in a grand hotel, with accommodation provided for the out of town guests attending the wedding. For example, the Hotel Zaza in uptown Dallas is famous for their cuisine by their Dragonfly restaurant and spectacular room setups. Truly, a wedding reception here will be a Dallas wedding reception that you will never forget.
