Wedding Venues in Dallas

La Bella Luna Wedding Venue in Granbury Texas

In 2020, just under 30,000 couples were married in DFW (still waiting on the official stats for 2021 weddings, but I would imagine that number was significantly higher.)  Therefore, you must assume there would be quite a few wedding venues in Dallas TX to be able to host that number of weddings.  And you’d be right; there are well over 250 venues in and around the DFW metroplex alone!  And while this might feel daunting as you begin your search for your own perfect Dallas Texas wedding venue, you can also be reassured that that means you have a ton of variety to choose from!

Variety In Locations & Styles

Whether you’re looking for a downtown Dallas wedding venue, something overlooking the Fort Worth cityscape, a European-inspired villa with epic views, a rustic or elegant barn on sprawling and lush grounds, a venue overlooking a lake, or believe it or not, even a castle – you’ll find it all right here in the Dallas / Fort Worth metroplex!  There is a little bit for everyone in North Texas and I am obsessed with all the amazing options.

So, in order to help you with your search, I’ve pulled together some of the most beautiful and unique wedding venues in Dallas, Fort Worth, and the surrounding areas.  As a local Dallas wedding photographer, I have the great honor of getting to work at so many of these incredible locations and am constantly learning about new ones.  (Not to mention there are new venues popping up almost daily seemingly!)  So, be sure to check back as this will be an ever-growing resource as I continue to find more wedding venues across North Texas that I think you should know about!
