A need to have Bridal Suite

A need to have Bridal Suite Every gal knows that a great bridal suite is an important factor when choosing a wedding venue. You want to capture those breathtaking moments of you getting ready that you see all over Pinterest. You know what I’m talking about, your hanging wedding dress, the first time your bridesmaids see you in your dress, and let’s not forget the many adorable and funny poses you’ll want to take. So let’s be honest, you can’t do any of that if your bridal suite is the size of a closet! This brings me to four points when searching for a need to have Bridal Suite. 1. Space. If you have five or more bridesmaids, you need a suite girl! Jupiter Gardens Event Center, Dallas TX, has three rooms located in the onsite bridal suite! One for your bridesmaids and a separate room just for you! With makeup chairs and plenty of seating, you and your girls will be comfortable and relaxed! Oh, and yes, I did say 3 rooms, because in addition to the two private rooms and a spacious closet, Jupiter Gardens has a waiting room inside the bridal suite! The waiting room is a great spot for your mom, grandma and maybe even some devoted aunts that just want to be with you every step of the way!   2. Location. Most people love the advantages of a one stop wedding ceremony and reception venue. Why dress somewhere else? Hotels make great use when they have suites. But, why spend money on a hotel when you can get ready onsite at Jupiter Gardens,...

One Stop Location for Wedding Ceremony and Reception!

When you’re moving to either to an up n’ coming part of town or next to the best schools in Dallas, Texas everyone always says it; Location! Location! Location! Well it’s the same with weddings. Here’s why you should have your ceremony at the same place as your reception!   Travel People love that they don’t have to travel between venues. Once your guests have gathered for the ceremony, they walk 10 feet and boom there’s the buffet table. I’m not saying that people are obsessed with food, but come on’, it is a big part! Because there is not a need for travel time, your guest can immediately start mingling! This means no awkward transition for guest to be trickling in to the reception hall at different times. Have them enter the venue as a group; the room will immediately fell warm and pleasant.   Keep em’ From Leaving When you have your ceremony at one place, let’s say The Cathedral in Downtown Dallas, you risk the chance of people going home after instead of driving out to your reception! They might feel it was enough to attend your ceremony and not want to spend more time.  Or, they could go to another event. There goes your guest count and you end up having to take home all the extra food that could feed an army! What a waste!   Timing Timing is everything! Have you thought about pictures? Do you really want to have your guest wait an hour or two after your ceremony so that the wedding party can take pictures at two different locations? Wouldn’t it...

Vision vs. Vibe

Vision vs. Vibe Hey all you future brides! As you’re planning your dream wedding, whether it is a glamorous Cinderella setting, or a casual BBQ theme; there is a general vibe and vision that you’re looking for. Let me start by explaining your vision and vibe is not the same thing; but in fact, you need both to pull off a great wedding! Vision is what you imagine when thinking about your wedding. It could include things like; dresses, ties, décor, food, and location. Vibe is something you feel. According to Google’s definition it’s, “a person’s emotional state or the atmosphere of a place as communicated to and felt by others.” We want our guest to get the vibe we envisioned! Make sense? If you’re starting to get it keep reading. If you’re lost keep reading! Although you might have picked out your bridesmaids dresses and shoes, have you picked out everything else that fits that theme? Maybe you’re stuck because the venue doesn’t match your shoes. For example, if you’re planning to have a casual, backyard theme maybe it’s a good idea to have casual dress shoes vs. those tall stilettos that get stuck in the grass. In this case, I know for me, I would have my girls wearing short dresses and cute cowboy boots. Can you say fun!! It is your personal vision that you want that specific vibe for your guest to experience. If you have the vision but not the vibe you leave your guest confused and wanting more. You can’t explain to your guest what you were going for… “Well, I was shooting...
