It’s time for another post on venues we love! This time, we thought we’d feature one of our favorites in Dallas – Edison’s. This is a wonderfully versatile venue. Edison’s is an indoor facility that has no windows – from the outside, it looks like almost like a warehouse, but has a great outdoor patio area. This allows you to really make the inside work for you as it is almost a blank slate. It’s a great venue for dramatic lighting, flowers, special decorative installations, you name it.
It can also handle a lot of different themes. It truly is what you make of it. Edison’s wedding specialists, Lauren Richards and Brittany Kinley, agree. “One Saturday we will have a rustic wedding with tree stumps, branches and neutral colors and the next Saturday an all white wedding with huge floral arrangements and dripping crystals.”
Edison’s has three areas that can be used for events. The Bentley Room can seat 75, and is ideal for a cocktail hour.
Edison’s also has a small outdoor patio that can be used for ceremonies or cocktail hours.
Finally, the Gatsby Room can seat up to 400 guests.
From past experience, Lauren and Brittany suggest a guest list of 150 to 200 to do your wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception in three different spaces without flipping any rooms. This also allows ample room for dancing during your reception.
One of the best characteristics of Edison’s is that it offers very inclusive packages. Facility fees include:
- Fruitwood Chiavari chairs with black seat pads
- Linens (various colors and styles available)
- Flatware, glassware, and china
- LED lighting in both event spaces
- Faux wood dance floor
- Staging for DJ or band
- Lighting for the stage and dance floor
- In-house sound system
Edison’s also does catering and beverage service in-house. They have delicious food, and cater for some of the top venues in the area.
We asked Lauren and Brittany to describe one of their favorite weddings for us, and here’s what they told us.
It is difficult to pinpoint our favorite event. Every couple is so unique, and has their own style, color scheme, and love story. One wedding in particular that stands out in our minds is Veronica & Ade’s wedding. They did an old Hollywood theme. The bride wore a custom-made wedding gown with final touches being sewn on right before the ceremony. The bride and groom did an old Hollywood photo shoot before the wedding and hung the photos all around the venue. They had a huge white couch on the stage for them as their sweetheart table with the band surrounding them as if they were VIPs. A cigar roller was stationed on the patio, greeting guests as they came down the red carpet.
So if you’re looking for a venue that’s long on atmosphere and can be molded to fit your theme, call Brittany and Lauren, the wedding specialists at Edison’s! Check out their website here. You can call them at 972.524.0741.
