Hi!  I wanted a Dallas venue with a view of the city too!  We are going with the W Hotel.

 

As far as non-hotel places… Thanksgiving Tower, Reunion Tower, City Club, and Renaissance Tower.  I’m not sure what kind of budget you have, so these may be out of your price range- they definitely aren’t cheap, but the ones I’ve looked at are a little cheaper than it would be to have the reception at a nice hotel.

I’m not Catholic but we are getting married at a church at paying $1600.  I think you will probably end up paying at least that to get married in a nice church there if you aren’t a member.  But there are some really pretty Catholic churches!

 

Good luck!

@Cassy409: I was living in NYC when we planned our Dallas wedding! Have you looked at Hickory Street Annex? Doesn’t have amazing city views, but it has that loft kind of NY feel.. definitely not the hotel ballroom feel (I totally didn’t want that either). http://www.hickorystreetannex.com/events%20venue.htm

Cityplace definitely has city views.

Check out St. Catherine of Siena in Carrollton, TX (I’m getting married there and I’m a member but I’ve had Sandy, Father Matthew’s secretary, tell me that they have lots of out of town couples marry there, possibly because of the closeness to the airports.

They’re pretty strict about all the steps (Sponsor Couple meetings, Precana, NFP, and Engaged Encounter) getting done but talk to them about your circumstances.

Try the Filter Building at White Rock Lake. You could have your wedding outside and your reception inside. I attended a wedding there recently and it was great. The couple told us that they were able to bring in their own alcohol too.

I chose the Hickory Street Annex and couldnt be more thrilled!! I would strongly advise that you or any other Dallas bride check them out.

Also with Hickory Street you can supply your own alcohol which is great on the wallet!

The City Club and CityPlace are very nice but they will end up costing a lot more than you expect. We were quoted about 25k and thats only food, drink, venue, tables, chairs and linens. I cant imagine what the total would be after you include everything else! If that is the kind of thing you like though I would check out the Sky Lounge at the Petroleum Club downtown.

I’m not sure if you are still looking, but I am getting married at the City Club in Dallas.  And I couldnt be more happy!  The view is amazing you can see everything from there (even my beloved Cowboys Stadium)  We are spending at the most 12000 on the venue, and that includes food, linens, dance floor, cake, and some floral centerpieces, also chivari chairs….I cant wait!!!!
