Are you one of the many Dallas couples who rang in the new year by getting engaged? Congratulations! We know you're already fielding questions about dates, guest lists and colors from overeager family and friends, but you may simply be feeling overwhelmed by all the details and decisions you'll need to pore over as you plan your perfect day.
Rather than stressing about your forthcoming nuptials, let the wedding planning and preparations become their own exciting journey. You already know that the Dallas Design District is home to some of your favorite restaurants and galleries, but you may not realize that this stylish neighborhood is also a fabulous place to host engagement parties, rehearsal dinners and even the wedding itself!
Stress-Free Parties and Showers
From bridal showers to engagement parties, there are so many celebrations to be had during the months preceding the big day. Luckily, there are several DDD locales that will take the guesswork and stress out of planning these events. For a casual get-together for any size, Meddlesome Moth offers creative menus and a diverse craft beer selection, all of which can be served to a semi-private room, out on the patio or throughout the whole restaurant.
The Texas Ale Project is a Dallas institution, and beyond perfecting the art of beer, they also offer an expansive brewery and rooftop patio that is ideal for casual events that will appeal to both the bride and groom’s respective entourages.
For the happy couple, the rehearsal dinner is an important gathering of close family and friends that precedes the big day. From elegant sit-down dinners to more casual post-rehearsal gatherings, DDD has venues to cater to any style. Oak is a go-to for date nights and special occasions, and their semi-private dining area or larger Champagne Room is a perfect place to honor beloved family and friends. The eclectic menu and cozy décor make any special event feel even more important.
For a more casual and colorful event, El Bolero offers access to their sprawling patio or dining room. Dine on authentic Mexican fare and strong drinks while you celebrate your upcoming nuptials with flavor.
The Main Event
The DDD has become a cultural icon in Dallas, and with its attention to detail and urban-chic aesthetic, it makes an ideal location for a wedding ceremony. D.E.C. on Dragon provides a chic interior and, on its enormous rooftop deck, a breathtaking view of Dallas’ skyline. Beyond providing a trendy space — which comes equipped with a full bar — the staff can assist you with planning and coordination so you can focus on enjoying your big day.
For larger events, look to The Empire Room — an elegant space that can accommodate large parties in an indoor-outdoor venue. Beyond the massive room, modern décor and large patio, the venue also offers many of the necessary supplies and amenities to ensure that your wedding goes off without a hitch.
If you're planning a more intimate ceremony, Hall on Dragon is a smaller space that appeals to most styles and budgets. The dramatic ceilings, neutral tones and bride and groom dressing rooms ensure that your special day will feel all your own.
Let the Dallas Design District help you host you the wedding of your dreams in the heart of your favorite city.
