Thankfully, the Dallas-Fort Worth region has long been a hub of activity for the queer community. In the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth, along with the mid-cities and suburbs, many LGBT friendly wedding venues gladly support same-sex, queer and trans couples on their wedding day. When it comes to selecting the perfect dallas venue or fort worth venue, queer couples should look for a wedding location that matches their wedding aesthetic, is in a convenient location, will accommodate their wedding size and is unequivocally gay friendly.

The Filter Building

White Rock Lake is a DFW regional treasure and the Filter Building is one of the only Dallas wedding venues directly on the waterfront. An artfully converted industrial building with equally gorgeous event space indoors and outdoors, it’s the perfect wedding venue for a couple that has grand plans to transform their wedding space. With rain and cold weather rarely being a concern in Dallas, most couples choose the green lawn for their nuptials, which provides unfettered views of the lake and a welcome breeze on the more muggy days. For the reception, head indoors to enjoy the exposed brick walls and low beam ceilings that provide the coveted industrial look and feel. The Filter Building is happily one of the region's LGBT friendly wedding venues, hosting couples like Heather and Kristy for their sunny April wedding.

The Tribute at the Colony

When brides Ashley and Christine started wedding planning , they knew they wanted to bring a bit of each of their backgrounds into the experience. Ashley is from Texas and grew up riding horses and going on trail rides, while Christine’s upbringing was “preppy suburbs.” The Tribute at the Colony, a 7,500 square foot wedding venue situated on Lewisville Lake about 30 miles north of downtown Dallas, was the only place that could do justice to both country and preppy. Part of a lush green and beautifully manicured golf course, The Tribute is a hit with couples who want to enjoy the best of both worlds, both indoor and outdoor. Stroll along the lake for rustic waterfront photo opps, then head to the lush garden for a ceremony near the vintage-style gazebo or within a covered outdoor space before partying the night away in the Royal Ballroom, which holds up to 200 guests.

Hickory Street Annex

Hickory Street Annex is an LGBT friendly wedding venue within a thriving mixed-used development in the heart of Deep Ellum, an impossibly cool neighborhood that feels like Dallas’ answer to Williamsburg. A former Gulf Oil distribution center, much of the original industrial character has been retained in this early 20th century building including concrete floors, exposed brick walls, wood ceilings and exposed steel trusses — all of which are right on trend! Thanks to Deep Ellum’s location just across the highway from downtown, couples enjoy gorgeous views of the city’s iconic buildings during their ceremonies and receptions.
