Leap Year Wedding

Saturday, August 24th, 2019


Leap Year Wedding in DFW

The year of 2020 is full of unique and memorable dates for weddings, but the most memorable of all will be Leap Day Wedding! Leap day only occurs every four years, but luckily the next leap day will come soon on Saturday, February 29, 2020.

Many couples choose February 29th as their wedding date because it is fun and unique, and it leaves a memorable day the couple and their guests. Some couples may joke that now they only have to remember their anniversary every four years, but we think this unique date makes it actually easier to remember.

Leap Year couples may only have an “official” anniversary every four years, but this gives them more time to celebrate a little bigger every four years (think a special vacation, or a special purchase for the home). On a non-leap year, couples can still celebrate their wedding day on a different day such as February 28th or March 1st .

We can’t help but to think of all of the fun ways to plan a leap year wedding! Couples can ask their guests to “save your extra day for us” when they send their save the dates, or they can use wordings such as “Take a leap of faith with us!”, or “We’re taking the leap!”

Also, the hashtag ideas are never-ending:

#weleaped #takingtheleap #Harmontakestheleap #leapingintohisarms

……We could do this all day!

Leap Day falls on a Saturday, which is the perfect and most sought-after day of the week for weddings.

Luckily if you’re planning a leap year wedding and still need a venue, Mediterranean Villa has availability! Happy Leap Year!

Our Top Five Reasons to have a Daytime Wedding

Daytime Wedding

Have you ever noticed that royals and celebrities hold their weddings in the daytime? This isn’t a new trend. They know the true benefits to holding a daytime wedding. While we may never have a chance to ask their reasons for having a daytime weddings, we can certainly imagine why!

Our Five Reasons to have a Daytime Wedding:

1. You can take your photos outside during the daylight. Just take a look on Instagram or Pinterest. Everyone wants that bright, airy look!  The color in your photos will be more vibrant with the use of natural light, and the lighting will also flatter your natural beauty. You can take advantage of the natural landscape of gardens, trees and the sky. There’s no better backdrop than Mother Nature!

2.  When you go out for brunch, what drink do you have in hand? Mimosas! That takes care of your signature drink for the reception. Mimosas are the perfect cocktail for a daytime wedding. Want an even trendier detail for your brunch wedding reception? Add a mimosa bar with fruit garnishes. Even better!

3. Dress Festive or Formal. You and your bridal party can be as dressed up or casual as you want to be. Beautiful sundresses are very appropriate for daytime weddings, and your bridal party can also wear a shorter or more casual dress. However, if you want to still have a black tie affair, it can be done!

4. Who doesn’t love a brunch buffet? Your food can be a combination chicken and waffles, fruit, carving stations, grilled vegetables, salmon canapes, frittatas, taco stations…you name it! There are so many delicious brunch options to choose from. Check out some of our catering menus at 

5. Brunch weddings typically end in the early afternoon. This gives you the rest of the day to spend time with your closest friends or out-of-town family. Do you have a plane to catch? Ending the wedding earlier in the day gives you more flight options to get to your honeymoon sooner. Doesn’t that sound romantic and dreamy!?

THIS Is When You Should Buy Your Wedding Dress

Tuesday, January 29th, 2019

Most brides have been dreaming of their wedding dress since they can remember. Chances are, if you’re engaged you probably have a Pinterest board full of wedding gown inspiration as we speak. But, wedding timelines can be tricky, especially when it comes to wedding dress shopping. You want to make sure you buy something with plenty of time for alterations, but not too early that by the time your wedding date rolls around you’ve been eyeing another dress. So when is the perfect time to buy the wedding dress of your dreams? Consider these tips when it’s time to go shopping.

Wedding Dress Shopping Wedding Dresses

Pick Your Venue and Date First

The first thing on your agenda should be to nail down your wedding date and venue. Here at Mediterranean Villa we have several venue options that will work for any bride – from an outdoor garden wedding to romantic chapel setting indoors. We also conveniently have ballrooms and a loft area on site for your reception space to make your wedding day as easy and effortless as possible!

But, the reason you want to make sure to you have your venue picked out beforehand is because you don’t want your wedding dress to clash with the overall wedding style. Instead you want your dress to suit the overall tone of your wedding, whether that be casual or formal.

Set Your Budget

It’s important to think about budget when it comes to wedding dress shopping. The last thing you want to do is blow your budget right off the bat. Figure out a realistic price range you’re comfortable with, so when it comes to shopping for that perfect dress you know what you can and can’t afford.

Research Your Bridal Style

Before you head out in search for your ideal dress, do some research. Narrow down your bridal style by thumbing through bridal magazines. You can also create a Pinterest board to save photos of dresses you like. Don’t worry about trendy in-the-moment fashion. Focus on your personal style and what flatters you the most.

Find The Right Bridal Salon

When it comes to finding the right bridal salon, it’s best to do your homework. Don’t waste your time going to a salon that isn’t going to suit you. Make sure to read reviews. Also, all ahead to find out if they carry the style, size, and price range that you’re looking for.

Go Dress Shopping

Once you’ve laid down all the groundwork, it’s finally time to go shopping! Now that you know what will and won’t work for your big day, you’ll have a clearer vision of what you’re looking for. We hope this will help you narrow down dress selections for your dream wedding gown.
