Top Five Venues for a Country Wedding
What I Learned at the Dallas Bridal Show
Wedding venue: two words that determine one of the most important places where you’ll make one of the most important decisions of your life. So, it shouldn’t be taken lightly. I’m here to help – with the assistance of bridal experts at the Dallas Bridal Show.
If you don’t already know, bridal shows really narrow down options by showing the bride what she’ll get for her money, since she’ll be spending enough as it is. It’s a way to see the dream instead of just dream it.
Naturally, I’ve always been drawn to barn weddings. There’s the whole, “I belong down south” thing again. My idea of a dream wedding is anything rustic. Mason jars. Burlap bows. Cowgirl boots. Bridesmaid flannels. String lights hanging from the ceiling. Sprigs of baby’s breath in the centerpieces. I can see all of this in my wedding Pinterest board as I am typing.
In this wonderful state, there are SO many barn venues... Here are my picks from the Dallas Bridal Show!
