Wedding season is in full swing! I love this time of year because I get to celebrate with so many friends. This month has been especially sweet because one of my closest friends, Heather, got married to the man of her dreams. Plus, the whole wedding weekend was at WinStar, so that meant another spa trip!
I am a sucker for a good love story (not a surprise if you read about my obsession with “The Bachelorette”). Heather and Danny are a perfect match. She was the calmest bride I have ever seen, and Danny was so helpful all weekend. Talk about an awesome guy! I’d been looking forward to standing by Heather’s side as a bridesmaid for months and it did not disappoint!
The entire weekend was pretty perfect. The wedding party arrived at WinStar and checked into the hotel on Friday afternoon. By 2:30 p.m., we were all out at the pool and enjoying the beautiful weather. After a while, we realized Heather’s mom lost the bride’s earrings! (You can’t have a wedding without one major drama, right?) So all the girls headed to Le Fleur and found Heather the perfect earrings. While we shopped, the guys headed over to WinStar Golf Academy for GEARS 3D swing analysis.
That evening, we all met up for the rehearsal dinner and drinks. The convenience of everything being in the same place was a game changer for us. We were able to enjoy all of WinStar’s amenities – the pool, spa, restaurants and more – and be close to all the wedding activities. We never even had to leave the resort.
The day of the wedding was nothing short of perfect. Heather treated us all to the Head, Hands & Feet treatment at The Spa at WinStar, and the groom and groomsmen played a round of golf, fresh off their lessons from the pros at the WinStar Golf Academy. We all got ready for the ceremony in the afternoon and headed over to the Convention Center.
The WinStar Convention Center is unlike anything I have ever seen. Take it from a girl who has been to her fair share of weddings, it is the best wedding venue in the North Texas area. Everything from the staff to the décor was incredible. The ballrooms were beautiful without any decoration, but once they set up the linens, china and flowers, it was truly stunning. It seems like it was built just to host gorgeous weddings. The staff was so attentive to the bride and her family and anticipated their needs. I could go on and on about how great everyone at the Convention Center was. The celebration outdid every expectation we had. Heather deserved an amazing wedding weekend and WinStar delivered!
If you are looking for an amazing wedding venue in North Texas or Oklahoma, take my advice and work with WinStar. Someday (hopefully!) I’ll be planning my own wedding here. That’s how much I loved it!
