Wedding Venues In East Texas: 6 Tips For A Great Outdoor Wedding

Wedding Venues in East TexasOutdoor weddings are steadily gaining in popularity and if you’re thinking about booking one of the many wedding venues in East Texas for your ceremony, there is one important thing you need to know to make your outdoor wedding a success – outdoor weddings require twice as much planning and preparation as indoor weddings. Unpredictable weather plus the natural setting are the main reasons that outdoor wedding venues in East Texas can be challenging.  Here are some tips that will ensure you’re prepared for some little and not-so-little outdoor wedding problems:

1 – Plan For Heat

This is Texas and even a winter wedding can be a scorcher.  Spring and summer ceremonies, especially, should be timed to take place right before sunset.  If that’s not possible, provide your guests with some kind of cover, in the form of a tent or parasols.  Putting your wedding program on a handheld fan is another way of helping your guests stay cool.  In addition, make sure they have plenty of options for staying hydrated and that means having containers filled with ice and bottled water, lemonade, sodas tea and even popsicles scattered around your venue.

2 – Protect Against Wind Gusts

Again, this is Texas and it’s almost always windy.  Don’t choose a frothy, lightweight fabric that can get blown up in the wind for your gown or for your bridesmaids’ gowns and to keep your veil from flying away, try veil weights. Make sure your stylist takes the wind into account when you’re having your hair done – stick to a head-hugging bun or copious amounts of hairspray.

3 – Keep Stilettos From Sinking Into The Ground

To keep stiletto heels from sinking into the ground, make sure that everyone has heel covers or make sure there is a solid surface, like a paving stone, for each member of your wedding party (and you) to stand on during the ceremony.

4 – Keep Bugs Away

Consider placing citronella candles around the seating area to keep mosquitoes away.  You can also offer small spray bottles of bug spray to your guests if you’re really expecting a problem.  Keep your food covered by using net canopies over food tables or covering individual plates with glass domes.  Make sure bugs don’t get into cold drinks by covering them with upside down cupcake papers with holes in the middle for straws.

5 – Don’t Forget A Microphone

The sounds of nature may keep your guests from hearing your officiant and you or your spouse talking during the ceremony.  Renting a basic sound system with clip-on microphones for the three of you will ensure that everyone hears your vows.

6 – Let Nature Do The Decorating

The one really big upside to having an outdoor wedding is, of course, the outdoors.  With trees and greenery around, birds tweeting and the sun setting in a beautiful palette of purples and oranges, you don’t have to make much of an effort to add to the romance of the setting.  A decorative trellis for the ceremony, some fairy lights or lanterns in the trees, your bouquet and flower centerpieces are all you need to make your wedding impressive.

Cabin Rentals In East Texas: Your East Texas Fall Couples Getaway

Cabin Rentals in East TexasIf you’re planning a fall getaway for you and your significant other, consider how much fun cabin rentals in East Texas can be.  No matter where in Texas you’re from – or where in the United States you’re from – East Texas is the perfect place for a cool-weather vacation for couples who need time away from the stress of everyday life.  

East Texas Is The Perfect Destination

East Texas is loaded with natural beauty and, of all the areas in the state, it’s probably the most unexpected.  Everyone knows that Texas is bigger than most countries and that means that a one- or two-day road trip can take you from canyons to plains to beaches; but for many people, driving through the Piney Woods of East Texas is a jaw-dropping surprise.  Forests of tall pine trees aren’t what most people think of when they think of Texas; and cabin rentals in East Texas that are set in and among the pines make for a cozy, romantic setting, especially when there’s a chill in the air.

A Tiny Vacation House Is Made For Two

When you choose a tiny house for your East Texas cabin rental, you’ll not only get to snuggle that much closer to your loved one, you’ll also get a taste of what tiny house living is like.  The tiny house movement is a growing trend toward choosing the smallest space necessary for living.  It’s better for the environment and easier on the wallet to live or vacation in a house with limited square footage.  Whether or not you’ve already considered downsizing your home and trying tiny house living, a stay in a tiny vacation cabin may make you think twice about needing that three-car garage or walk-in closet.  

There’s Fall Fun For Couples In Canton, Texas

As if staying in small house cabin rentals in East Texas wasn’t enough to bring you closer to your partner, when you choose a cottage rental near Canton, Texas, you’ll find lots of fun fall activities outside the cabin for the two of you to share.  The annual Festival of Trees will get you both in the mood for Christmas with a display of fun, unique Christmas trees decorated by local businesses, organizations and individuals to raise money for the Canton Chamber of Commerce.  Once you’re in the mood for the holidays, take in some shopping as you stroll hand-in-hand down Canton’s main street with its one-of-a-kind shops and boutiques.  If you really love shopping, you can time your vacation to coincide with First Monday Trade Days, the country’s largest flea market with over 7,000 vendors.  After a hectic day of shopping slow down with a romantic dinner for two.  Canton and the surrounding areas have a variety of restaurants to choose from, including the Four Winds Steakhouse, for steaks and seafood, and Dodge City Dinner Theater, for dinner and a movie.
The best cabin rentals in East Texas can be found at Mill Creek Ranch Resort.  When you’re ready to book your couples getaway in one of our tiny house-sized cabins or cottages, call us at Mill Creek Ranch Resort at (877) 927-3439.  You can also visit us online at www.millcreekranchresort.com to find out more about our on site amenities and fun things to do in Canton, TX.

Wedding Venues In East Texas: 5 Steps To A Great Bachelorette Weekend

bachelorette weekend vacation packageIf you’re a maid of honor looking for a great location for a bachelorette weekend, take a look at wedding venues in East Texas. Why are wedding venues a great idea for your bride’s pre-wedding get-together with her friends? Because wedding venues in East Texas are already set up for multiple guests, usually have great amenities and are normally situated close to the entertainment and nightlife that can make a bachelorette weekend memorable. Finding that great location is just one of many steps you’ll have to take as the chief party planner; but if you keep it simple and stick with these 5 basic steps, you’ll end up with the best bachelorette weekend ever:

1. Ask For Help
Make a list of all of the tasks you have in planning the weekend ahead of time – then ask other members of the bridal party for help with each one, whether it’s coordinating with the resort or hotel, making restaurant reservations, decorating, creating invitations, etc. Even if you’re a control freak, letting some of the decision-making fall to others and getting help means less stress for you.

2. Talk To The Bride.
Of course, she’s your friend, but don’t assume you know what she’ll want in her bachelorette weekend. Talk to her and ask her where she prefers to have her weekend, what kinds of activities she wants you to plan and who she wants (and doesn’t want) at her party. Does she want the weekend to be one, long nightclub crawl or a peaceful weekend of shopping, mani-pedis and romantic comedies? She might surprise you.

3. Think About Budgets And Travel Time
When choosing a location for the party, take costs and travel distances into consideration. If your guests are chipping in, make sure that you don’t price people out of the weekend by choosing a super-expensive venue. And try to choose a location that is as easy as possible for the majority of your guests to get to. You’re not going to be able to please everyone with the location, but you can try to please the guests who are most important to the bride.

4. Do Some Scouting
Once the location is decided on, it’s time for a field trip or two to find out firsthand what the venue you’ve chosen has to offer your guests. If it’s close to a city that has restaurants, bars and other entertainment, check them out and make reservations as early as possible once you know how many guests will be there for the weekend and what kinds of activities the bride wants.

5. Go With The Flow
A hitch or two in your plans is inevitable so don’t worry too much when something does go wrong. From inclement weather to no-shows to lost reservations, there are an almost endless number of reasons you might end up pulling your hair out in bunches. Just make the best of it! As long as your bride is happy and everyone has a good time, don’t sweat the things that are out of your control.

When you’re ready to start looking at wedding venues in East Texas for a bachelorette weekend, start with Mill Creek Ranch Resort. At Mill Creek Ranch Resort, you can rent cottages and cabins for your girls that have all the comforts of home with amenities that will make them feel like they’re at a five-star resort.

Trade Days Lodging In Canton, TX: 3 Must-Haves For First Monday Weekend

Trade Days Lodging In Canton, TX: 3 Must-Haves For First Monday WeekendNothing says fun in East Texas like a trip to First Monday Trade Days and if you’re headed out for a little shopping, a little eating and a little more shopping, you’ll need trade days lodging in Canton, TX.  Why?  Because nobody can see all 450 acres of over 7000 vendor booths filled with everything from furniture to antiques to funnel cakes in just one day.

What First Monday Trade Days Is

First Monday Trade Days is only the largest flea market in America that boasts hundreds of acres of vendor booths where you can buy anything and everything your heart desires.  For over 150 years, shoppers have made their way to Canton to look for clothing, jewelry, furnishings, arts and crafts, collectibles and more.  First Monday Trade Days are held Thursday through Sunday before the first Monday of every month.  

What 3 Things You Must Have For A First Monday Weekend

There’s no doubt that a First Monday Trade Days weekend will be hectic and tiring.  So to be sure that you maximize the enjoyment of your shopping experience, you must choose trade days lodging in Canton, TX that can offer you these 3 must-haves:

1 – Proximity To The First Monday Grounds

If you’ve already driven to Canton for First Monday Trade Days, you don’t want to have to spend even more time than is necessary in your car getting from your resort to the the First Monday grounds. When you choose lodging that is close by, preferably less than 5 or 10 minutes away, you’ll spend more time shopping and less time commuting.  

2 – Shuttle Service Back And Forth

How about not having to move your car at all once you get to your resort?  The best lodging – one that caters to the First Monday crowd – will offer shuttle service back and forth from the First Monday grounds to your resort.  

3 – Entertainment For Winding Down

After logging in what will feel like hundreds of shopping miles during the day, you need lodging that’s more than just a bed.  You need to treat yourself to lodging that offers relaxing weekend amenities like swimming, roasting marshmallows over a fire and listening to live entertainment while sipping a cocktail.  After all, shopping is hard work.    

Where You Need To Stay

If you want to make your First Monday weekend special, choose Mill Creek Ranch Resort for your trade days lodging in Canton, TX.  Mill Creek Ranch Resort is 3 minutes away from the First Monday Trade Days site with shuttle service back and forth.  It offers cottage and cabin rentals as well as RV site rentals that will give you access to all the resort has to offer, including bike trails, fishing, swimming and live music in the Grand Lodge featuring the musical talent of East Texas singers and songwriters. 

If you’re ready for a shopping weekend at First Monday Trade Days, why not call us at Mill Creek Ranch Resort at (877) 927-3439 for trade days lodging in Canton, TX.  You can also visit us online at www.millcreekranchresort.com to learn more about our accommodations and all of our resort amenities.

Wedding Venues In East Texas: 5 Tips For Selecting The Right Location

Wedding Venues In East Texas:  5 Tips For Selecting The Right LocationWhen you’re planning your wedding and trying to choose from available wedding venues in East Texas, there are quite a few things you must keep in mind besides the first things that usually come to mind like price and availability.  But since you may not know exactly what to look for in a great wedding venue, here are 5 tips that will help:

1 – Choose A Central Location

Remember your guest list and where everyone is traveling from to get to your wedding.  The venue should be as close to centrally-located as possible to get friends and relatives there easily, specifically those friends and relatives who are driving to your wedding.  For guests who will arrive by plane, the location you choose should be within a short driving distance from a medium- or large-sized airport.  Just because you might live in a large city like Dallas, remember that wedding venues in East Texas are a short drive from the city and offer rustic chic charm.  

2 – Take Travel And Traffic Into Account

Even though you’ve settled on a wedding venue that’s centrally-located, that still doesn’t guarantee it will be easy to get to.  Make sure you take a test drive from a couple of different directions to the location you’ve chosen to make sure Google Maps or a GPS will give your guests accurate and up-to-date directions.  You must also think about traffic.  If your wedding is planned for a Friday evening, any guests coming from congested areas will take longer getting to you.

3 – Keep Accommodations In Mind

Some of your guests may travel longer than others and some may just want to make a weekend of your wedding, so be sure that the location you choose either has on-site lodgings or other accommodations nearby.  Check with your guests to find out which ones will likely want to stay overnight and make reservations for rooms or cabins ahead of time.  In most cases, you can cancel fairly close to the day of the event without having to pay a penalty.

4 – Think About The Wedding Style You Want

You can narrow down your search list if you decide early the kind of wedding style you want.  Do you want an outdoor ceremony or an indoor one?  Do you want rustic or refined?  Do you want casual or formal?  Some wedding venues can offer you more than just one choice so ask the event coordinator at each venue you’re considering for photos of past weddings they’ve hosted, if available, so you can get some idea what each kind of wedding would look like at that venue.  

5 – Make Sure Your Venue Can Handle All Of Your Guests

Another question to ask the event coordinator is how many guests the site can handle.  You don’t want to have to uninvite someone because there isn’t enough room for them.  And because guests don’t always RSVP within the required time or they sometimes bring their own guests without telling you, ask how much extra you’ll be charged for surprise guests.

Take some of the worry out of your wedding by choosing one of the finest wedding venues in East Texas, Mill Creek Ranch Resort, for your wedding.  At Mill Creek Ranch Resort, you can be sure that you’ll have the wedding you’ve always dreamed of in a beautiful location with the help of an experienced staff.  Call our social events manager at (877) 927-3439 or visit http://millcreekranchresort.com/weddings/ to find out more about wedding packages at Mill Creek Ranch Resort.

Cabin Rentals In East Texas: Escape To A Cabin In East Texas

Cabin Rentals In East Texas: Escape To A Cabin In East Texas East Texas has a lot of natural beauty in its piney woods, bayous, lakes and parks and the best way to take advantage of that beauty is with cabin rentals in East Texas.  When you rent a cabin for a day, a weekend or longer, you’ll have a great base of operations for your explorations of all that East Texas has to offer.  And if immersing yourself in nature isn’t all you want to do, East Texas also has lots of charming small towns with cafes, restaurants, museums and shops for you to explore.

Get Modern Conveniences In A Rustic Setting

If you’ve never rented a vacation cabin before, you’ll be in for a pleasant surprise, especially if you think living in a cabin means roughing it.  Resorts that offer cabin rentals in East Texas know that unwinding in a cabin is all about what’s outside the cabin and that vacationers just want to enjoy the rustic setting and the activities without having to fetch water from a well or sleeping on a dirt floor.  Modern cabin rentals are a comfortable home-away-from-home with all the modern conveniences you need like TVs, washing machines and that all-important hot, running water.

Experience Tiny House Living

In addition to putting you in a great location, cabin rentals in East Texas also give you the opportunity to discover tiny house living.  Right now, tiny houses are super popular and many people are downsizing from McMansions to houses that can be as small as 100 square feet.  When you rent a cabin for the weekend, you won’t have to live in 100 square feet but you will get to experience a kind of tiny house vacation that you wouldn’t be able to experience anywhere else.  You may even fall in love with the idea of a smaller home.

Enjoy What The Town Of Canton Has To Offer

Image of Cabin Rentals In East Texas: Pack the Essentials for Family FunCabin rentals in East Texas often have everything you need to survive – even survive in style – like WI-FI, AC, dishware, cooking utensils, bedding, towels, televisions and more. But it’s up to you to bring what you and your family need to have fun. When you’re planning your East Texas getaway, especially with kids, you don’t have to plan for every minute of the day because a great resort will likely have lots of fun activities for everyone to enjoy; but it’s always good to have a few items with you to make the trip more interesting or to have something to do as a family at the end of a long day.

Packing for Fun in East Texas

For The Kids

Packing for fun means different things for different ages. The most important thing to remember is that your vacation is meant to be spent doing things together as much as possible so, as painful as it may be, try to discourage older kids from spending every waking moment on their phones or computers. Encourage them to disconnect. Engaging younger kids in fun family activities is a little easier. Here are some things to bring along that should make everyone happy:

▪ A telescope and star chart for finding constellations and pinpointing the locations of planets
▪ A magnifying glass for getting up close and personal with East Texas flora and fauna
▪ A flashlight for nighttime exploration
▪ DVDs appropriate for the whole family
▪ The ingredients for cut-out cookies that the kids can help to make and decorate

For The Grownups

If you’re traveling as a couple or you want something to do after the kids fall asleep, here are a few items to pack to make your trip enjoyable:

▪ Binoculars and pocket field guides for birdwatching
▪ A camera for photographing the beauty of East Texas
▪ A deck of cards
▪ Books
▪ Crossword puzzles
▪ That bottle of wine you’ve been saving for a special occasion
▪ Your favorite movies
▪ Your favorite music

Cabin rentals in East Texas are a great way to get the family together for some relaxing fun for a weekend, a week or even longer. It’s your chance to disconnect and get your kids out into nature and when you check out the best cabin rentals in East Texas at Mill Creek Ranch Resort, you’ll have 200 acres of woodlands to explore with hike and bike trails, catch-and-release fishing and much more.
