Plan Your Winter Wedding at our Southlake Wedding Venue

Many people overlook the winter season when it comes to weddings, but this time of the year offers many benefits for brides. The merriment of the holiday season can spill over into a festive December wedding, or you can position your wedding as the highlight of the otherwise drab month of January. February is inherently romantic, presenting the possibility of a Valentine’s Day wedding. If you’re thinking about a winter wedding in Southlake, our Chandon Arbors venue has everything you need to create a winter wonderland for your special day .

Set the Date

The first step in securing an outstanding wedding venue like Chandon Arbors is setting a date. A winter wedding in the Southlake, Texas area can deliver delightful weather. The average December and January highs here are around 57 degrees Fahrenheit. By February, the average high is more than 60 degrees, and in March this climbs to 68. You may need to set your wedding date months in advance to get a coveted weekend. However, winter weddings are highly underrated, and dates between December and March are easier to book than those during peak wedding months like June and October.

Select Your Setting

Our wedding venue has several ceremony locations to choose from. You can have a brisk winter wedding outside against a lovely wooded backdrop under our ceremony arbor. Consider adding a gorgeous furry jacket or elegant shawl to your wedding dress to stay comfortable if the weather gets chilly.

You can also opt for a cozy indoor wedding at Chandon Arbors. We have a 2000-square-foot ceremony space and a 3,500-square-foot grand ballroom. You’ll have access to the entire property for a full 12 hours on your wedding day so you can designate these spaces any way you’d like for events like your cocktail hour, ceremony, photo shoot, and reception.

Outline Your Event

Decide how you would like your wedding day to flow and let our team at Chandon Arbors know what your timeline looks like so we can make sure everything is ready. You can customize your wedding any way that you’d like. You might park food trucks outside to serve hot cocoa while guests mingle around the fireplaces on our outdoor patios. We also have a full prep kitchen if you’d like to serve an elegant dinner beneath the crystal chandeliers in our ballroom. You can arrange your day however you will love.

Find Photo Inspiration

Take some time to look up winter wedding photos in preparation for your event so you can give your photographer an idea of what you’ll cherish. We have an abundance of decorative features including a waterfall, an elegant vestibule complete with a teardrop chandelier, a limestone outdoor fireplace, a quartz-walled ballroom, a cedar wedding arbor, and more. You can use our website for extra inspiration to make your winter wedding photos pop.

If you’re ready to get started planning your winter wedding, contact our team at Chandon Arbors to learn more about our stunning venue. We can check the calendar and let you know what dates are open so you can get your big date on the calendar now!

How to Finance a Wedding

As you plan and dream of the ultimate wedding, you may wonder how to finance a wedding. Finding the right wedding financing doesn’t have to be challenging. You just need to look at your finances, budget, and wedding priorities. You don’t want to add undue stress to your wedding planning, nor do you want to go into too much debt. Here are a few ideas on how to afford and finance your dream wedding.

Get a Personal Loan From the Bank

One way to get financing for your wedding is to apply for a personal loan from your bank or credit union. When asking for a loan, budget items like flowers, food, beverages, and wedding venue financing to your list. With good credit and the proper documentation, you can help finance your wedding with a personal loan.

Take Out a Home Equity Line of Credit

If you’re a homeowner, consider using a home equity loan to finance your special wedding event. Lenders will look at the equity in your home and offer you a line of credit. Sometimes up to 85% of the home’s equity. You’ll want to speak to your mortgage broker to see if this type of financing is right for your wedding.

Using Wedding Venue Financing

Sometimes you can find wedding venues with financing. Terms for this type of wedding financing depend on the venue. Look for venues that will work with your budget. Some venues offer a reduced or zero interest rate for a set amount of months before you pay back the financing with interest.

Ask Family for a Wedding Loan

You can ask your family for a partial loan or a loan to cover all costs of the wedding. You’ll want to show any family members you plan to approach for a loan what your budget looks like and a realistic plan of how you’ll repay the loan. Some family members may gift some money to help offset the cost of the wedding or draw up an official finance document stating the terms of the loan, including the interest rate and the time you have to pay the loan back.

Save Up for the Wedding

Those who don’t want to finance a wedding can save up for the big day. However, with most weddings costing thousands of dollars, saving that amount of money could take several months or years. With thorough research and planning, you can come up with a realistic way to finance your wedding instead of waiting to save for the event.

At Chandon Arbors, we will help make your dream wedding come true. With our flexible venue set in a stunning location just outside of Keller, Texas, you can have a small, intimate wedding or a large one with up to 600 people. We help customize your special day with our professional staff, including access to our florist and catering team.
