Impressed will be an understatement when your friends and family drive on to the castle's grounds on your special day. Offering a breathtaking landscape, this venue has the actual shape and structure of a castle, but is located just five minutes from Highway 30. It will be pure magic as you feel like a real life, modern-day princess walking towards your prince on the castle grounds. Your group will have the entire castle for the day, allowing you and your 200 guests to roam throughout the Great Hall, veranda, and gazebo during cocktail hour. This will, of course, include the in-house photo booth, which will keep the memories at the front of minds for years to come. Read real brides' reviews here!

A 102-year-old building that includes unobstructed views of Fair Park and pieces of downtown, The Room on Main is a 6,000-square-foot space that features light walls and original, dark wood floors, 20-foot ceilings, and 15-foot windows. This is The Room on Main. A bit more urban than some of the spaces on this list, this gorgeous space allows you to completely think outside of the box in customizing plans for your wedding day. The staff at The Room has almost everything covered for you and your guests (up to 320!), including fantastic catering that will leave your friends and family ready to take their moves out onto the dance floor.

When we think of southern glam, there is hardly a venue that fits that vision more closely than the Lone Star Mansion. A true Antebellum Mansion, this venue was built in the 1800s in Mississippi, later being moved piece-by-piece to just outside of Dallas. Set on 20 acres of land, featuring two spiral staircases in the foyer, chandeliers in every room, and original crown molding, the mansion is the perfect setting for a younger couple seeking an old-world glam feel. If you host your ceremony in front of the mansion — where you won't have to bring in a single additional decoration. Your reception will feel right at home in the Crystal Ballroom which fits up to 130 guests, or, enjoy a tented reception on the lawn for as many guests as you'd like. That evening, you'll be able to rest your head in your complimentary suite within the mansion itself. There is hardly a more romantic or old-world glam way to celebrate the start of your happily ever after. Read real brides' reviews here!
