Spring is in the air, and that means wedding season is fast approaching. But don’t worry if summer has snuck up on you. Whether you’re a bride, groom, proud parent or someone else’s “plus one,” you can take care of all your nuptial needs at the Dallas Design District.
With more and more couples waiting until later in life to say “I do,” traditional wedding gifts just aren’t as suitable as they used to be. What do you get the couple who already has two of everything? Forego the bread machine and stand out from the rest of the wedding party. If you’re looking for a gift the happy couple will cherish — and not stash away never to be seen again — the Dallas Design District has you covered.
As the new couple join their lives and build a new home together, they’ll also be marrying their individual styles. Help them explore their future as creative collaborators by scheduling an appointment with an art consultant at Tatum Art Advisory. Or inspire the happy couple to establish a new family tradition around a new family heirloom. Pick up an antique at Heritage Auctions or a one-of-a-kind piece of furniture at Again & Again.
A little pampering can make the big day itself even bigger. Or maybe the entire wedding party can bond and have some fun getting primped and primed at any one of the spas and salons located in the DDD. A massage and a facial at the V Spa is enough to relieve stress and warm up any cold feet. Get spruced up for that walk down the aisle with a visit to Hair by Charlie. Or check out the event day makeup and hair packages at Scene Salon for a picture-perfect wedding day.
Get in Shape
You never know what will happen once the wedding bells ring. Will the couple of the hour get through their vows without crying? How long will the best man have to dig through his pockets to find the wedding rings? Will the obligatory weird Uncle get up enough (liquid) courage to shake his thing — only to end up clearing the dance floor? One thing is for certain, though. There will be photos taken of it all, and photos last a long time. Make sure that when you’re flipping through the pages of your wedding album years from now, you’ll be greeted by the best version of yourself.
Luckily, the Dallas Design District’s can help you get in tip-top shape, too. Check out one of the six different classes at The Barre Code for some strength training and cardio. Stretch and strengthen your muscles at Dallas Pilates. And relax and detox in the gentle heat of the Infrared Sauna at the BalancingEnergy Health & Yoga Center.
Romance can be contagious. Weddings have a way of nudging those almost-there couples toward their own big day. If that’s you and your forever love, the team at 316 Design Source is ready to take care of all your wedding planning needs. Let them plan your event, take care of the floral designs, wow guests with custom dinner service options and even rent a gown to your mom.
Of course, don’t forget all the other celebrations that come with tying the knot. DDD is home to plenty of venues that are great for hosting showers, rehearsal dinners and the receptions. Check out the rooftop deck at d.e.c. on Dragon, or explore how you might decorate one of the huge lofts at Level Two. Our restaurants feature ambiance in abundance, too, from the patio at El Bolero to the semi-private dining rooms at Oak.
There’s no end of places to go and things to do in the Dallas Design District this June… and every month of the year. Whether it's the perfect gift or just something to make your own day a little more special, you can find what you're looking for at the DDD.
