Dallas Wedding Emergency! HELP!

  • 12
  • Share

The venue where we have booked our wedding reception on July 25 has broken our contract and we have no place for our reception. We are looking for a place near NorthPark for 300 guests. We wanted to have it on top of a nice place. We booked the 34th floor of CityPlace but they renigged. Does anyone have any suggestions? The bride is beside herself!

  1. Shoot an email to Kristin Hull at DMagazine, she might put up your request on the bridal blog they have over there.

    1. Park City Club. Nice View.

      1. I have been to more than a few receptions at one of the beautiful buildings at fair Park. Sounds hokey, but can be quite oppulant, yet affordable. Hall of States is pretty incredible. Parking is never a problem and security is included (including a mounted officer).

          I like your idea. Very regal!

        2. Don't know what $$$ you're talking about or the availability, but the Dallas Arboretum has several options - indoor and out. It's not "up", but they do have fabulous views of White Rock Lake and if I remember correctly, the Dallas skyline. http://www.dallasarboretum.org/Rent.htm

            I second the Arboretum rec, especially since the notice is extremely short. What an awful situation!! I would definitely try to get this situation posted on teh bridal blog so other's may beware. Good luck!

          2. Although I can't help you with this situation, you have my best wishes and, good luck.

            1. I can't help you with anywhere with height but the country clubs around here are sometimes willing to take a last minute reception. I used to do event planning for Brookhaven Country Club and we often took last minute arrangments. Try Brookhaven, La Cima Club (might be too small), Gleneagles, Northwood.. just google country club near whatever zip code and start calling. Good luck!

                  I was speaking to some other hounders, and my suggestion is hugely sound.

                    Thanks to everyone! We found a great space in the West End with a wonderful host!

                      Try the white rock filter building, and catering! Best of Luck!
