Perfect place for a ceremony and wedding reception! Loved working with our Event Manager. She was lovely and so helpful. She walked us through the process and helped with even the little details that were important to my husband and I. Built in décor at the Arboretum-- it is truly a no brainer, they are the bomb!

We used the Women's Garden and it was beautiful. When the wedding planner tells you at rehearsal you need to start lining up 10 minutes early it is not enough time. The wedding was suppose to start at 7 pm and it did not start till 7:20. That 20 minutes was huge for us since our reception was held there and we had to be out by 11:00 pm.

Great venue full of beautiful sprawling plants. Overall I loved this place and would choose it again in a heartbeat. That being said there are a few things that were a small hassle. The parking was a little weird and far from the actual site. Not really that big of a deal though. Again overall loved the experience.

The Dallas Arboretum was a beautiful venue for a wedding reception. We did have a little trouble communicating with our assigned wedding coordinator. When we were able to talk to her or she answered an email she was helpful.

Could not have had a more stunning venue for my wedding, it was an absolute fairytale! The events team is extremely busy, so they have very demanding schedules, but with the help of my wedding planner the day was flawless. Just make sure you have a little extra help if you're having a huge wedding that is extremely detail oriented like mine!

My fiance is in the military and when he came home from Afghanistan, I showed him and we booked a year in advance for June 2014. I had such high hopes. We were immediately assigned a coordinator who took down all of our information and expectations, got us in touch with our caterer, and told us what to expect along the way. Unfortunately none of those things happened. By the time we reached our wedding day we had been assigned to three different coordinators...the first passed us off due to a larger event the same day that she would rather do, another just quite and the third...well...I am not sure why she even showed up. The day of the wedding she kept disappearing. When we would lose one coordinator, they did not pass on all the notes to the next so we ended up speaking to the VP of sales that assured us that our wedding day would go off with out a hitch. Well when the bridal party arrived to the Arboretum at 4:58pm we were told we were told that we could not come in until 5pm. Hmm ok...2 min...sure we'll wait.Then we were told we could only drive up to the DeGolyer House one car at a time and then we would have to park our car in general parking and walk through the garden all the way back. Really? Even the head of the valet kept telling our coordinator that he would park our cars, the coordinator kept saying no to my father who was limping at the time and had our getaway car. The coordinator kept disappearing and we could not find her, she misplaced my picture seating chart and then did not know where things were supposed to go even though I had given her multiple copies and had met with her a month prior to the wedding. She did not check in to tell the bridesmaids when to get dressed. I had to keep up with the time while getting my hair and makeup done. Our wedding started at 7pm. The coordinator came in smiling at 6:45pm asking if we were ready to go. Thank God we were!

We had our Wedding here about a month ago. The weather was just as beautiful as the Arboretum. Its the most beautiful place and I could not imagine getting married anywhere else. Our ceremony was at the Jonsson Color Garden and our reception was held at Rosine Hall. Everything about that day was amazing minus our "day of" coordinator. We booked the venue in February of 2013 and in the 15 months leading up to our big day we went through four different coordinators. All of them were not that great at communicating or returning any of my emails or phone calls. Once one would quit, nobody at the Arboretum would inform us until we called and demanded to speak with someone. I understand that they are very busy and deal with so many weddings through out the year, but I still would have like to know what was going on especially considering how much money we paid. Now back to our "day of" coordinator. I had never met this lady prior to the big day and she was never introduced to me. Towards the end of the evening, a few guests heard her in the back screaming that, "she hated her job and she was quitting" along with a few more choice words. Overall the wedding staff was not as professional as I had hoped, but if I had to choose the venue again I would still choose to have it at the Dallas Arboretum, there is no other place like it.

This place is crazy busy, and for good reason. Our venue was so perfect and Kaley (our coordinator at the Arboretum) handled everything like a true professional.

Our ceremony was at Crape Myrtle Alley...which takes seeing to believe how amazing it is. One note about this venue, the sun can be a problem at certain times of the year so take that into consideration. Our reception was at The Alex Camp House.

Kaley and the other coordinator put everything together like it was the easiest thing they've ever done. The caterer, the florist, the lighting, the dj, all set up and good to go. They communicated via walkie-talkies to have me and the guys walk out at the perfect moment, and then to have my wife and the procession start at the perfect moment. I was blown away at how perfect everything went. You guys are awesome. Thank you so much.

Obviously a gorgeous venue. Everything worked out as planned so I cannot complain, however, the arboretum is very stingy on their contract and lacked flexibility to accommodate us. They are EXTREMELY picky as to what you can hang from the trees for lighting (weight limitations and wiring limitations) , you can't stick anything in the grass (shepherds hooks or arches), no open flames (candles had to be enclosed somehow and no sparklers for sendoff), no beer, and also you have to choose vendors based off of their approved vendor list. Luckily we loved their options and like I said, things worked out beautifully in the end.... planning details was a tad difficult.
