Holiday Weddings

Why You Should Consider a Friday or Sunday Wedding

You have just gotten engaged, and now it’s time to figure out the wedding date. Hidden Creek has some tips for you if you want to save a LOT of money. Our secret is to have your wedding on a Friday or Sunday. Now, we know what you’re thinking. “That’s crazy, why would I have my wedding on any other day than a Saturday?” Although a Friday or Sunday wedding was not something you were considering at first, we have listed some reasons that make these days appealing. Here’s something to think about.

Holiday Weekend

Hidden Creek highly recommends getting married on a Sunday if that Monday is a holiday. This gives your guest all day Friday and all day Saturday to travel. They will surely appreciate this extra day. The great thing about Sunday weddings on a holiday weekend is that you get two Saturdays in one weekend. You can have your rehearsal dinner that Saturday and go out for some drinks with your visiting guests later that day. Then, they have the Monday holiday to travel back home. And if Thursday is a holiday, then you can get married on that Friday. Aside from the extra time, you will also save tons of money.

Discounted Days

If you decide on a Friday or Sunday wedding, your bank account will be very thankful. There are discounts with venues and vendors on these days. Since they are not as popular as Saturdays, venues and vendors offer financial motives to get your consideration. Venues like Hidden Creek, and vendors such as DJs, photographers, caterers, etc. will have deals that make Friday and Sunday weddings a steal. You can invest the extra money into your honeymoon, a house, etc.

Rehearsal

When you have a Friday wedding, you can have the rehearsal at the venue on that Thursday night, and then go out to dinner after. If you have a Saturday wedding, then you won’t be able to do the rehearsal on Friday night. The venue will most likely be rented out. You will have to do your rehearsal two nights or three nights before the wedding, which you do not want to do.

Relaxed Sunday Weddings 

Sunday weddings are great, especially if you decide to do a brunch wedding. Who doesn’t love mimosas, waffles, and breakfast burritos? Brunch weddings are making a huge comeback, as many people are really interested in them right now. It creates a relaxed, fun atmosphere. We especially recommend these types of weddings if you don’t have a huge dance crowd. Brunch weddings take the pressure off of making a dance floor and having a party vibe. Instead, you can have a calm Sunday afternoon spent chatting with your family and friends.   

Availability

If you don’t want to wait two years to have your wedding, a Friday or Sunday wedding is the solution. Saturdays book up so far in advance that it becomes super stressful to find vendors and venues available for your ideal date. You will have a better choice of venues and vendors if you opt for the other two days of the weekend. Plus, you will have the opportunity to get married a lot sooner.

Coming up with unique wedding favors can be a challenge, but consider this: what is one thing everybody can appreciate? Good food! Here are 12 delicious suggestions for fun, creative wedding favors for your beloved guests. If you are planning your wedding in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, consider Hidden Creek for your special night. Our beautiful natural landscape can transform into anyone’s dream wedding venue.

1. Familiar Traditions

Weddings are typically filled with family members, and there is no better way to show them your appreciation than giving a familiar gift. Think about long-running food traditions in your family for your favors.

2. Personal Cakes

When a couple wants to have a creative cake option, they usually turn to cupcakes. Instead, consider small replicas of your wedding cake for each guest. They are super cute, and a fun take on a cake that’s uniquely yours.

3. Fresh Fruits

Small arrangements of fruit are another tasty treat for guests. You can customize each mini basket and add in whatever is growing locally.

4. Tiny Pies

Little, personal pies are a great alternative to cake for a wedding dessert. Additionally, there are so many varieties of pie, you can allow your guests to choose their own flavor!

5. Fun Fortunes

Personalized fortune cookies allow you to send your thanks to guests in a mystifying way. Include the couple’s name and wedding date, along with a loving message, for great memories.

6. Mugged Snacks

Monogrammed and dated mugs filled with pre-packaged snacks create a great gift for your guests to munch on while they head home after the party.

7. Olive Oil

A gift whose label can easily double as a name card, olive oil is a good, long-lasting reminder of your special night. Whenever your guests use it in the future, they can look back at your wedding!

8. Special Hot Sauce

Hot sauce is another gift that can promote lasting memories. A custom hot sauce made by the couple will be used in most anyone’s household, and it’s a fun conversation starter that will bring up your wedding in the future.

9. Homemade Cookies

There is just something so special about a good homemade cookie, especially when it is made by the guests of honor! With tons of recipes online, this is a great way to make a ton of wedding favors in one day and spend time with your future spouse before the wedding.

10. Personal Pizzas

No matter the occasion, everyone loves pizza. A three-inch personal pizza with a monogrammed box is a delicious and cute mid-party snack.

11. Mason Jar Cakes

Another great way to give your guests some dessert variety is by hand-making cakes in small mason jars. Using simple boxed cake mix, this can also be a fun DIY project to do before the wedding.

12. Midnight Snacks

What do you crave after a night of dancing and fun? Something salty? Something sweet? Offer your guests both by providing them a bottle of soda and a small bag of chips, packaged together in a personalized bag, to thank them for their attendance.

February 14th is the most romantic day of the year! If you decide to get married on Valentine’s Day, you might be tempted to go over-the-top with red roses and shimmery fabrics – not that there’s anything wrong with that. But don’t forget the little details that add charm to your Valentine’s Day wedding! For the most romantic wedding scenery in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, come to Hidden Creek Events in Heath, TX. We make every day feel like Valentine’s Day with our wooded acres, twinkle lights, and a panoramic view of colorful Texas sunsets just across the street.

Here are eight romantic little touches you can add to your wedding.

Hearts in Unexpected Places

Red or pink hearts are a timeless symbol of Valentine’s Day and love. Add them to your bridal manicure, clip some onto your shoes, or trap them inside a gauzy layer added to your dress or veil. This cute pop of color is sure to make you smile.

Chocolates Galore

Whether you’re having a candy buffet or giving sweet swag bags to your wedding party, share the love with decadent chocolates. Truffles and chocolate-covered caramels are classic favorites. Wrap them in red or pink foil or put them in tiny heart-shaped boxes.

Love Notes

In lieu of the traditional guest book, put out a basket of vintage Valentine cards for guests to record their loving wishes. Since you can find Valentine cards for every interest, don’t be afraid to choose ones that reflect your favorite shows, hobbies, or fandoms.

Arrows

Cupid’s arrows are a whimsical addition to any wedding décor. You can incorporate them into your invitations, your place settings, your jewelry, and your floral arrangements. Some couples even opt for gold arrows piercing their wedding cake!

Cozy Comfort

Look for decorations that promote a warm and cuddly atmosphere. Soft, furry pillows, or even huggable Valentine’s Day teddy bears, can be strategically placed to warm up sitting areas and charm your guests.

Romantic Music

If you’ve chosen to get married on Valentine’s Day, chances are good that you’re a hopeless romantic. Don’t hold back when it comes to the love songs; this is the perfect chance to put together a playlist that really touches the heart.

Love Story

Find a way to incorporate your own love story into the festivities. You could do a story board, a timeline, or a slide show. If you’re a natural born speaker, you could give a sweet summary of your story at your wedding reception.

Mood Lighting

Use special lighting to give your wedding a soft, beautiful glow. LED candles and floating candles with rose petals are lovely ways to illuminate your dinner table. When you tour Hidden Creek, be sure to ask about our romantic uplighting for your reception.
