White Rock lake has a great house for rent- look on the Dallas parks and recreation website. It is only 400$ to rent and they have tables and chairs, you bring your own food and alcohol. plus you have an amazing view. Wish we were getting married there, but we opted to get married at my parents home instead. Best of luck.
There is a wonderful reception facility in Irving called Receptions on The Main. It is in the Heritage District and they provide full service including linen, centerpieces, food, china, staff, etc. Their pricing is really great. Check out their website www.receptionsonthemain.com or call 972-259-2964.
Brookside center has rental prices starting at 35.00 to have to book through the recreation dept.
FYI - the Receptions on the Main has a new name, "Glory House Catering". But, I'm definitely going to look into them!

I need some ideas on cheap, inexpensive venues for my wedding ceremony and reception (doesn't have to be the same place but preferably close to one another) in Dallas, TX.
Where can I find a cheap place to have a wedding and reception?
ST. Martins Place on MLK Blvd. is a beautiful old mansion that has been restored. It has a gorgeous staircase and there are areas upstairs and downstairs.
