Wedding venue

We had booked a wedding venue back in June. As of Wednesday, we were notified by my mother that the place (Chandler's Landing in Rockwall) was going out of business and failed to notify us. We have everything ready but not the venue. I want to get married outside on October 31, 2009. I'm at a loss, I tried the arboretum, they did not return my call, Castly Douglas, they are already booked for that day, I'm now clueless.

Swan Court would have fit the bill, but it closed at the end of July.

The Hilton in Rockwall on the lake has outdoor wedding facing the lake.

Reunion Ranch outside of Terrell has a gazebo on a lake for weddings, but this location is somewhat hard to find.

The Greenery in Waxahachie has outdoor weddings in a garden type atmosphere.

The Victoria House near Kaufan has outdoor weddings.

Maybe this can be some help.

Hi, gilliansage,

There are lots of venues so first thing, don't panic!

You've done the correct start to finding a new venue by posting here - there are also several others ways to find a venue, including craigslist -- I'm sure I don't have to tell you to be be careful and check any of the vendors out who are on there...

Can you give us a little more information? What type of venue you prefer to have - outside gazebo, etc?

What is the number of guests that you are trying to accommodate?

I have met several vendors lately that should be able to fit you in - it all depends on your location needs and type of venue, and of course, budget...

Please don't hesitate to email back and keep us updated!

Sorry, I forgot to mention, the 1899 Farmhouse is an outdoor venue with a gazebo, lots of trees, and very secluded country setting. We welcome all of your vendors here.

A friend of the family graciously offered up his house. thanks for all the feedback. If i had to do it over again, I would've gotten married on the beach and had somethine simple like i originally wanted.

Judging by the stories of my senior colleague, the dating service is the most convenient and comfortable for flirting and finding a couple for dates. He says that there are thousands of profiles of people who are looking for attention and want to go on a date right now. He himself has been using this service for half a year and regularly goes on dates with girls from this site.
