I loved having my wedding here! I was a litte worried when I read some of the other not-so-great reviews, but I had only good experiences here.

The main ballroom is very large and pretty plain at first, but the huge windows looking out onto the gardens are so beautiful that you really don't need that much decoration in the room. My only complaint would be that I wish they still had the wooden floors that are in some of the pictures online, now it is a fairly ugly linoleum.

We had an afternoon wedding with croquet and lawn games on the circular lawn and this venue was absolutely perfect for it. I got so many compliments on the venue and gardens!!

Tammy from discovery gardens and Carron from sugar city sweets are amazing to work with! They truly were there to help with everything! I never felt like just another bride, they wanted to make my wedding perfect just as much as I did! Carron went above and beyond her call of duty to make sure everything was the way I wanted! She took all the stress away with our monthly meetings and walk throughout. They even surprised with a wedding gift which was beyond anything we ever expected! I can not thank them enough for making our day so special!

Texas Discovery Gardens is a beautiful venue to have a wedding. We loved working with the team and especially the planning team of Carron Short and Sonja Foster with Sugar City Sweets & Celebrations (they work out of the Gardens). We loved that the space was an empty canvas for us to make our own. It is very important to have good lighting on the day, because the walls can look a bit yellow and old. I loved all of the windows and openness that the venue provided. The gardens were in great shape and blooming for our April wedding. It was wonderful to be able to support a non-profit!

This place is an oasis. It's a happy little place in the middle of a busy city. My wedding was perfect, in large part because I had it here.

The garden's are beautiful. Tammy is such a darling, hardworking woman. I feel she went completely above and beyond the parameters of our contract to make my day perfect.

I definitely recommend this venue for a perfect wedding.

Despite having a few issues, such as the lady who helped us book the venue & do all the walk throughs not being 'available' on the day of my wedding, and a concert starting close by, my wedding day went well and the location was beautiful. Was not pleased with the way the lady who helped us book the venue trash talked my vendors.

If you are wanting a picturesque garden ceremony and a beautiful setting for a reception, look no further! I think that since the venue is located in Fair Park, it is often missed. This place is so gorgeous, affordable, and it really is an oasis in Dallas. It was a bit hard to get a hold of the rental department at times but that really didn't matter because we had the most beautiful wedding we could have ever dreamed of at the Texas Discovery Gardens. If we had to do it again, I will choose here again. The gardens are beautifully kept and it just can't get any better than the floor to ceilings windows in the grand hall. It was a perfect venue for us!

BUYER BEWARE. NIGHTMARE. DISAPPOINTING. UNPROFESSIONAL. I signed my contract over a year in advance. I feel in love with the grand ballroom, it fit me perfectly --overlooking the garden, huge floor to ceiling glass windows- beautiful. I booked the entire day which meant paying for two rentals, morning and afternoon/evening. I had no problem doing this as I knew I wanted everything to be setup in time and had the budget to do so. After I signed the contract there was not much contact until closer to the day when I need an inventory count of tables for my floorplan, linen counts, ect. I email THREE times from me and additional emails from my wedding planner, there was no response and then a response that because the floors were being redone they could not locate all of their pieces and could not give me an accurate count. I tried to schedule my two week out appointment with the venue A MONTH in advance and they were too busy, booked or unable to meet with me. I felt that as a booked event, they did not care anymore since money had been paid. They received a final agenda from my wedding planner at least three days before the wedding- DURING the rehearsal at 5pm on Friday they call saying I cannot do confetti poppers on the floor UNLESS I paid an additional $200 cleanup --on top of the cleanup crew I already hired. THIS IS A SCAM. TGD then called me at 11:00am on my wedding day to get a credit card for payment. I told them it was not acceptable to call on the wedding day for money and it could have been handled afterwards. I told them I was not discussing it any further and handing the phone off to someone else for payment. They continued to yell at my maid of honor who had the card, she had to ask them to stop yelling and just take the card number. TDG's contracted sales person pocketed the money- no where in their paperwork does it talk about additional cleanup. She knew that it was too late for us to change anything hours before and took advantage. I was told I had to hire TGD's recommended cleanup crew in order to avoid loosing my deposit. Our rental time was until 11:59pm. We ended our reception early around 9:30-9:45pm. My mother and I were still hugging guests goodbye, guests still on the dance floor, and talking, and the clean up crew was flapping the garden chairs shut, echoing to where we could not hear our conversations (DJ had already stopped playing). No one has authorized them to do start cleaning up, they took that upon themselves. Then they stood next to us as we said goodbye to people, and waiting for us to move so they could take more chairs. They started moving all of our centerpieces off WITHOUT permission and putting up tables. We left at 10:30pm. The other MAJOR issue is that the AC was not working during our event. It was an 80 degree day, and even hotter inside with the humidity from guests sweating, and the sun shining through the glass windows. I was so hot that my planner was icing down my back and checks, most guests went outside to cool off and others tried to help by keeping doors to the lobby open. It was cooler outside than inside the room. TGD's staff yelled at my guests from trying to open doors to cool off. I met with the director two weeks after the wedding and she took notes then sent an email offering $350 return of money from my $4100 rental. I told her it was not a satisfactory settlement I would disputing all credit card charges. They turned very ugly and extremely unprofessional. My wedding planner has written letters to back my disputes as well as called the director and expressed concerns as a business partner associated with them. It has turned into a huge mess. I am very disappointed especially because I work in this industry (event director at a golf club) and know what is reasonable and unreasonable to venues. They are aware that I am writing reviews and writing to the BBB. Best of luck if you book here, it is a beautiful facility with POOR management, unprofessional staff, money driven directors, and have found every way to "contract" or "recommend" their vendors but receive money on the back end from them and then are not responsible for anything.

This is the BEST place to get married! I read the bad review and am sorry for her horrible experience but they are now under a new Director. Carron Short is absolutely WONDERFUL to work with! Weddings is what she does!! Making the bride happy is her pleasure! I have the unfortuate experience of having had two previously booked venues before finding her. So I can tell you for sure that it everyone is not as professional as Carron. Her vision for your day is splendid! We trusted her with EVERYTHING! I felt like she was my David Tutera. We married on the circular lawn and had our reception in a small portion of the Grand Hall. Our photgraphers set up the photo booth in the Gossip Lawn. The set up and take down went as expected. Parking is free. There was more than enough time for my vendors to get in and organized. The bridal suite is perfect for keeping you out of sight of guests and getting you out of the door for the ceremony. Even though the Gardens can't be closed, guests didn't disturb our wedding at all. One day before the wedding, I was meeting with Carron and she had a fit because there was a machine in the middle of the lobby 6 hours before an event was due to start. Now for her to react like that made me even more comfortable that our day would be perfect. Because of her, it was!! Even though she is the Director there, she helped is with so many other things. She also has a company Sugar City Sweets that did our dessert bar. The treats were soo good!! The presentaion was beautiful!!! I think that they are now offering different wedding packages that are not on-line. Please contact her about this. Let her know that LeAnn sent you and says hi!! :)

I recently attended a wedding a couple of weekends ago where a close friend was getting married at the Texas Discovery Garden. I had done a couple of walk throughs with my friend and I was so excited about her wedding. She had extremely beautiful handcrafted touches to the wedding and was getting married in the actual butterfly garden. Unfortunately there was something that my friend could not prepare for on her wedding day and that was the horrible attitude and service of the coordinator- Caron Short. If you are planning on having your wedding here please try and find someone else to help you.

She was extremely rude to the sweet bride and very mouthy. Initially she had promised the bride that all of the bug exhibits would be removed from the lobby. On the wedding day someone politely mentioned that they still hadn't been removed and she was very prompt to go into the dressing room where the bride was getting ready and yell at her that she couldn't move them. Being in the room with the bride along with about 6 other people we were all horrified with how she spoke. I mean, it was the kind of sass that a 13yr gives their mother. The bride remained very composed the entire time and the resolve was that they would just cover the bug exhibits with linens. Caron only came in and apologized when the groom asked her to.

I've been to many, many weddings and I have never seen a wedding coordinator treat someone like this. She also was late for her appointments with the bride, triple booked appointments, created a cake that the bride did not agree to, and accused the photographers assistant of yelling at her when all he was doing was politely asking her to step away while they took their couples portraits after the ceremony (again, I was a witness to this) I'm shocked with this woman's skewed perception and she in no way should be responsible for anyones "special day"-she'll ruin it.

I loved the venue and despite Caron's unprofessionalism the bride and groom had a wonderful wedding thanks to their hard work, family and friends.

Again, if you find yourself wanting to use this venue just do yourself a HUGE favor and avoid working with Caron.

Texas Discovery Gardens was the perfect choice for our wedding. The people were nice in allowing our vendors to come in and set up prior to the contracted time. We used the Grand Allee and the Grand Hall and our wedding was gorgeous. The only issue I had was the Grand Allee could only be used before sundown because there was not any lighting. However, we made the most of it and had a beautiful late afternoon ceremony and the reception was in the Grand Hall. We originally were considering The Dallas Arboreteum but the price was just ridiculous. I think Texas Discovery Gardens allowed us to have an even better wedding than we could ever imagine.

The gardens are nice and not expensive to rent, but our ceremony was ruined, the lawn guy was mowing during the ceremony. The ceremony was at 11:00am and it was hot than expected. The circular lawn doesn't have any shade; they didn't have the courtesy to move the ceremony to a shaded garden. We were sweating! Also, I paid for 75 chairs and only half were out. They do not want to give a refund.

I really feel that this is a hidden venue in Dallas. I wanted to have my wedding and reception somewhere different that wasn't a country club or a hotel and this was just the place! You can use the gardens or the grand hall. I took advantage of the grand hall because the space is so versatile. You can really make it your own. They are doing many renovations on the building so it should be even better shortly. Keep in mind that this is an old building so it's not the glamour and glitz (though it could be with the right caterer and planner) that you think. The staff was very helpful. They were willing to let us take pictures in the gardens before hand, meet with our caterer beforehand, etc. I would definatly recommend this to those that are looking for something different than the usual place in Dallas.
