White Rock lake has a great house for rent- look on the Dallas parks and recreation website. It is only 400$ to rent and they have tables and chairs, you bring your own food and alcohol. plus you have an amazing view. Wish we were getting married there, but we opted to get married at my parents home instead. Best of luck.

There is a wonderful reception facility in Irving called Receptions on The Main. It is in the Heritage District and they provide full service including linen, centerpieces, food, china, staff, etc. Their pricing is really great. Check out their website or call 972-259-2964.

FYI - the Receptions on the Main has a new name, "Glory House Catering". But, I'm definitely going to look into them!

I need some ideas on cheap, inexpensive venues for my wedding ceremony and reception (doesn't have to be the same place but preferably close to one another) in Dallas, TX. My fiance and I live in Shreveport, LA while he is in the Air Force. We are getting married in late September, because we just found out I am 2 months pregnant! We would like to be married before the baby is born and before he gets deployed to Iraq, sometime in early 2008. We have a very small budget, but still want a beautiful wedding! PLEASE HELP!

Since your husband-to-be is in the Air Force, he should be able to rent a reception area in one of the local AmVets, American Legion, or VFW's for little of nothing. That's what we did for my daughter's wedding. The reception was sort of a casual luau buffet with borrowed slow cookers filled with BBQ meatballs and cocktail wieners. There were lunch meat trays, veggie trays, and fruit and cheese trays. Those ingredients were bought at a local Sam's Club. The decorations were from a discount greeting card store. The wedding flowers were from a local grocery store that had a floral department. They were beautiful and way less expensive than from a florist. My daughter got her dress from eBay and it was beautiful. A little planning and imagination will pay off. Good luck. (07/04/2007)

Eagles, Elks, Kiwanis, Moose...they are a bargain and they all have some sort of kitchen and dishes, seating, tables, all you need for a crowd. (07/10/2007)

Just went to a great wedding this weekend.

They set up the tables in the same room they were married in. Everyone took a seat at their table and the bride walked up between the center space of the tables and everyone watched from the comfort of their table. Then after the wedding music began, people served themselves. Several friends brought planned out covered dishes that were placed on an already decorated table out front and there were small white round wedding cakes on different types of pretty cake plates on each table. The cakes were placed on some toll with a small candle on each side. They were frosted white with a small fresh flower for color. It made the center piece and saved the expense of a large cake. The Cake on the bride and grooms table had 2 layers and ivy, very nice. This wedding was done on a small budget, one room for everything, family and friends pitching in. And, it was so pretty. Good luck and email me for more info if you like.

Besides the above for eagles, elks, Kiwanis and moose, also try an American Legion post or knights of Columbus. Use the phone book for locations. These places are cheap, decent and for a good cause. (07/12/2007)

Check out Winfrey Point on White rock Lake. It's very affordable and you are able to bring in your own vendors and catering. Also check out the Heard-Craig House in McKinney or the Carpenter House in Plano. (03/28/2008)

I just checked out the Rowlett community center off Kirby, and the Spring Park community center in Graland. If you know someone who lives in the areas they can rent it in their name to help reduce the costs. They are by the hour and the grounds are nice at both. You could do the wedding outside and the reception inside. The lower floor at Spring Park is nicer than the upper level.
Let me know of anything else since we are in the same situation.
At my sons wedding we got coupons from Dickeys BBQ and did the food ourselves. You can get their packs for a fair price with the coupons they put in the value packs that come in the mail.
Check out thrift and resale stores for wedding gowns.

ST. Martins Place on MLK Blvd. is a beautiful old mansion that has been restored. It has a gorgeous staircase and there are areas upstairs and downstairs.
