You’re engaged! Congratulations!

Now is the perfect time to start planning your wedding in East Texas. Venues can fill up quickly, especially for more desirable dates and times. You’ll want to make that decision soon because it’s the foundation piece for most of the other wedding decisions you’ll need to make. But how do you choose the perfect spot for your dream wedding in East Texas?

Why East Texas?

Texas has a style like no other place, and venues in East Texas can easily lend themselves to using a sophisticated Texas look. These simple ideas can help you maintain a “sense of place” that stays true to the area and enhances your own style.

  • A natural color palette with “pops” of wildflower hues like bluebonnet, Indian paintbrush, or even buttercup pink. Texas wildflowers are famous for a reason!
  • Using popular landscape grasses and their plumes as part of your decor and in the arrangements can be both cost-effective and mood-effective. The big, showy plants are a natural to add foliage and texture, and would be stunning as part of the bridal bouquet, too.
  • Turquoise stones have long been a big part of Texas style. Perhaps a silver bolo with a turquoise in it rather than a bow tie, or a chunky turquoise necklace? Vases with turquoise accents or even giant, unrefined pieces of turquoise can up the Texas glam factor. If turquoise isn’t the right hue, perhaps you have access to granite? Large-scale pieces would add a big “Wow!” factor to your tablescapes.
  • Cowboy boots! Boots can be just the right touch to add both whimsy and style to your wedding. Bonus: your bridal party will be so much more comfortable dancing the night away at the reception!

Texas Wedding Flair

An East Texas wedding venue wouldn’t be complete without a sense of community and coming together. Your wedding could have the perfect Texas touches, but without your close family and friends near you’ll still be missing an essential ingredient. Mill Creek Ranch Resort is the perfect venue to add that crucial element to your beautiful East Texas wedding.

Out of town guests and the entire bridal party will enjoy time spent before, during, and after the wedding when they stay at our resort. With cabins available for each family or group, you and your guests have easy access to all the wedding events. During down times, your guests can get away to rest in their own cabin or relax while taking advantage of The Resort’s many activities like disc golf or horseshoes. Mill Creek Ranch Resort’s natural beauty and charm are the perfect backdrop and venue when you’re looking for the best places to get married in East Texas!

LOCATION

Getting ready to plan your wedding? What should you look for to find the perfect location to host your Dallas special events? If it’s a wedding you’re planning, on your special day, you want something unique, something extraordinary. You can choose to settle for the lackluster mediocrity of the standard hotel or banquet hall wedding and reception or you can search for someplace different, someplace exceptional. The location of your wedding and reception sets the tone for your special day and is the single most important factor in making your wedding and reception uniquely YOU!

At Mill Creek Ranch Resort our goal is to make your dream wedding a reality!

Looking for a rustic lodge or country pavilion for your wedding ceremony and reception? Or how about a romantic garden wedding? You’ll find them all at Mill Creek Ranch Resort.

DECORATIONS & DETAILS

Once you’ve determined the location of your wedding ceremony and reception, what decorations will you use? Does the venue provide decorations and if so, will they add to the special feeling that you’re trying to create? If not, can you provide your own? What about other planning details, like photography & videography, cakes, etc? This can be the most tedious, stressful and frustrating part of the venue planning process.

At Mill Creek Ranch Resort besides surrounding yourself in beautiful scenery, we provide superior amenities that will define a truly remarkable wedding day. We know there are many planning details the go into your beautiful day, including photographers, disc jockeys, cakes, horse drawn carriage, catering, hosted or cash bar, groomsmen golf packages, bridesmaids spa packages, etc. We have a variety of vendors with proven success that we feel confident in referring to our brides.

FOOD & BEVERAGES

Many Dallas special events venues have restrictions on the food and beverages served. Before booking your event you’ll want to be sure that your food and beverage desires can be accommodated.

At Mill Creek Ranch Resort we’d love to help you to create the menus and services that exceed your expectations and fit your budget. Our goal is to make sure that your Dallas special events wedding truly is everything you’ve ever dreamed of.
