About Botanical Research Institute of Texas

The Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT), located in the Dallas/ Fort Worth area of Texas, is a non-profit organization that also serves as a stunning wedding venue. Situated within the Fort Worth Cultural District, this is the ideal location for couples who are looking for a unique, yet natural feel for their special day. Wow your guests with truly one of a kind architectural designs including floor-to-ceiling windows, reclaimed cypress wood walls, and bamboo ceilings.

Facilities and Capacities
BRIT can accommodate up to 200 guests seated when using the entire facility. Both indoor and outdoor locations provide you with the best of both worlds. For your outdoor ceremony, couples can use the BRIT Prairie. Filled with native flowers and grasses, you will be surrounded by nature’s beauty as you say “I do.” The Exhibit Hall and Commons are ideal for your cocktail hour and dinner. With wood paneled ceilings and large windows, the elegant space is size-flexible for your needs. The Atrium is perfect for your reception. Featuring breathtaking architecture, floor-to-ceiling windows and stunning views of the surrounding scenery, this modern space will leave your guests talking. The space is lit with LED lights positioned within the unique reclaimed cypress wood wall. Wander up to the second floor outdoor Oak Terrace for a more intimate setting that still maintains the venue’s lavish structure. The Terrace space overlooks BRIT's native prairie.

    This is an overlooked gem that definitely needs a look! Modern and unique interior mixed with natural Texan prairie right outside of floor to ceiling windows makes for a seamlessly chic venue. Outdoor and indoor options for smaller weddings with a price tag that won't shock as much as many other venues in the DFW area. Give Katherine a call, and check it out, cause the BRIT team will not let you down!
