About Texas Discovery Gardens

Nestled in the historic Fair Park, Texas Discovery Gardens is a wedding venue located in Dallas, Texas. The property comprises seven and a half acres of lush flowers, native and adapted plants, and organic gardens. When it’s not hosting nuptials, the nonprofit welcomes children and adults through its doors to learn about conservation and the environment. Originally opened in 1936 as the Hall of Horticulture for the Texas Centennial Exposition, the conservatory was the first public garden in Texas. Featuring a house of butterflies, an insectarium, and a number of scenic event spaces, this is a dreamy venue in which to commemorate life’s milestones.

Facilities and Capacity
Texas Discovery Gardens has two outdoor locations and two indoor areas for couples to hold their romantic celebrations. Outside, the Grand Allée offers a long and narrow lawn flanked by tall evergreen Savannah holly trees. A spacious green that can host upwards of 600 people, this site boasts a dazzling fountain at one end. More intimate exchanges of vows can take place on the Circular Lawn, which is ringed with evergreens and a serene koi pond. For a truly unique option, the Butterfly House is also available for ceremonies. This breathtaking, multi-level glass vivarium abounds in 500 free-flying butterflies, which may even alight upon the newlyweds as they tie the knot. This option is standing-room-only but makes for a magical experience that guests won’t soon forget. Receptions can be accommodated in the Grand Hall, a versatile space that features floor-to-ceiling windows, spectacular views of the grounds, and seating for 250. Other spots that can be customized for wedding needs include the secret garden, shade garden, and meadow.

Services Offered
Reception meals at Texas Discovery Gardens are exclusively provided by the in-house caterer Two Sisters Catering. This restaurant will work with couples to design their dream meal and offer passed canapes, buffet style, food stations, and plated dinners. Rental of the venue comes with five hours of event time, tables and chairs, an on-site event manager, security, and help with setup and cleanup. Rehearsals are also available so that soon-to-be-newlyweds can be sure everything will run smoothly on the big day.

    A Night to Remember

    I can't say enough wonderful things about this venue and their event staffing! Both Abbey with TDG and Monica with Two Sisters worked closely with me to insure my daughter had an absolutely perfect day. They are so hands on and made sure to take care of whatever was needed so I could truly enjoy the day without worry. I couldn't be more pleased :-)
