I've been lucky enough to officiate a few weddings at the Dallas Botanical Gardens and each time I've found it a stunning and peaceful venue for a ceremony. The grounds are well-kept and the variety of plants and flowers is amazing.

Beautiful flowers and landscaped areas. The children's fort area is cute with the old time cabins. I went with some extended family from the area and they ended up purchasing a family membership.

This is such a beautiful place and a great day out. We went when the Chihuly exhibit was on which was just stunning, but the landscaping is beautiful either way, especially the little artist themed houses. A high cost, although we also went in a large group, but we brought a picnic and made a whole day of it.

The arboretum is always a good place to go. The grounds are beautiful and the displays are very well thought out and well presented. Going to the arboretum is a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon.

We went on a cloudy day, would recommend not going in the heat of summer day. Information ladies were especially sweet and helpful, even providing tips on other things to do in the Dallas area.
