Wedding in Dallas!

Hi, I'm trying to plan a wedding in the Dallas metroplex and we'd really like a place where an outside ceremony could be held, then the reception at a restaurant. Does anyone know of any nice places? Thanks!

      Um, no more than $15K. I'd like to keep it down to 10,000 if I could

      Guess I should have asked how many guests also....

      Anyway, have you looked at the Arboretum yet?

      Or the Nasher?

      Just about any restaurant will let you do a "buy-out" if you give them enough notice. But doing everything on-site at the Nasher would be very, very nice.

        I had mine at the Seventeen Seventeen Restaurant at the Dallas Museum of Art. The restaurant has a outdoor patio where we had our ceremony, then reception dinner inside the restaurant. It holds about 100 guests if you choose seated dinner, more if you do buffet dinner. The price is gonna be a bit more than your budget, I think. We had a great time, the food was great and I thought it was worth every penny. The Seventeen Seventeen is operated by Wynnwood.

          Seem to be a great many weddings in Lee Park. Small pavilion of some sorts. More restaurants near by than you can shake a stick at.

            Check our Marie Gabrielle. I do not know what kind of minimums they have, but it is a restaurant with a gorgeous garden they open up for ceremonies. I can't describe it - you just have to see it for yourself! I have had lunch there a few times, and my meals are always excellent.
