Booking a Wedding Reception Dallas Ft. Worth Texas

You received the ring and now it is time to pull all the pieces together for booking your  wedding reception in Dallas Ft. Worth!  When you start looking at all the details (small and large) it adds up to a big overwhelming project.  The key to not going “bridzilla” is to find partners to help you with all the details.  It is also important to stay in reality.  Getting the most for your reception and still managing the cost is important.  Weddings on TV such as David Tutera’s My Fair Wedding will run in the hundreds of thousands of dollars!  Reality check!

So now the question is, how can I have a wonderful, beautiful, dreamy wedding reception in Dallas Ft. Worth Texas and not break my small piggy bank in the process?  The answer is there are lots of options that provide something beautiful and reasonably priced.  There are many venues in the Dallas Ft. Worth Metroplex to choose from.  Some venues offer only the building.  Others offer chairs, tables.  Some offer linen.  Some are all inclusive wedding reception venues and offer the full service package for your event.  For example, Glory House Catering and Receptions in Irving offers the venue, table linen, china, servers, appetizers, buffet and plated dinners, bartenders, and coordination in their pricing.  They also offer a preferred list of vendors to work with for services they do not offer.  The key is finding a venue that can help you put all the pieces together.

After you receive the ring, thing about what is truly important to you for your reception.  Think about your budget and your priorities may change when you find out how much each piece of your wedding actually costs.  Be realistic and choose to have fun.  In the end your guests will remember a beautiful bride, a wonderful reception and will leave your reception with joy for your future!

Glory House Catering of Irving Texas Named U.S. Chamber Blue Ribbon Small Business Award Winner

WASHINGTON, D.C.—The U.S. Chamber of Commerce today announced Glory House Catering of Irving Texas as a winner in its annual Blue Ribbon Small Business Awards®, a program that recognizes companies for their success and innovation and for their contributions to economic growth and free enterprise. Glory House was selected from a record number of applicants from communities across the nation for demonstrating exceptional business practices in areas including strategic planning, employee development, community involvement, and customer service.


“While our economy still struggles to reach its full potential, small businesses like our Blue Ribbon Award winners have continued to act as examples of the resilience, ingenuity, and opportunity at work in the free enterprise system,” U.S. Chamber President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue said. “Times can be tough, but these businesses have proven that they can be too. And by taking risks, watching out for their employees, and giving back to their communities, they’ve shown that success is achievable.”


The Chamber will announce seven regional finalists from among this year’s Blue Ribbon Small Business Award® winners on March 18 and honor all of this year’s winners at the 11th annual America’s Small Business Summit, taking place June 8 – 10 in Washington, D.C. During the summit, one regional finalist will receive the DREAM BIG Small Business of the Year Award, sponsored by Sam’s Club®, and a $10,000 cash prize courtesy of the U.S. Chamber.


All Blue Ribbon Small Business Award® winners are also eligible for the Community Excellence Award, which recognizes one business that has found notable success in the eyes of its community. The winner will be decided through online public voting between February 19 and March 4.


“Starting and growing a business can be a risky endeavor, but these small businesses have proven that with risk, comes reward,” Donohue continued. “Through hard work and innovation, they’re impacting their communities, contributing to economic growth, and creating jobs. And the Chamber is proud to recognize them for their achievements.”


A complete list of this year’s Blue Ribbon Small Business Award® winners is available here.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.
