Are you planning a Dallas or Fort Worth Wedding — or anywhere else in Texas and beyond!—and are looking for a real “Texan” wedding venue, Rough Creek Lodge and Resort is exactly what you’re looking for.

As soon as you drive through the entrance of Rough Creek and wind your way to the Lodge, you’ll realize that this is not your typical ranch-style wedding venue. Quite the contrary. Rough Creek Lodge blends casual luxury and rustic elegance in everything we do, and it really shows when it comes to weddings.

Our 1800’s-style white chapel is authentic and simple: decorate it with the flourish you’ve always wanted. Or say “I do” under a natural canopy of old oak trees in the Grove, and dance the night away under the brilliant country stars. Maybe its cocktails in the Great Room and Nuptials on the Back Terrace. There are so many options.

Make it as lavish or as simple as you desire—it’s your wedding after all. Our Wedding Consultant will assist you from the moment you drive in for your first meeting till the last guest leaves the wedding reception. From pre-wedding activities for guests, to supremely comfortable rooms, to incredible dining prepared by our own Executive Chef, Gerard Thompson…every detail will be seen to with impeccable exactness.

Take a deep breath. Embrace the detour from the hustle and bustle of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, and let us take care of everything for your Dallas Wedding or Fort Worth Wedding. All you have to do is relish every moment of your special day.

No two weddings are alike. Do you want a gorgeous, very traditional wedding? Or do you want to fly in the face of tradition and forget the norms on your special day?

Your Rough Creek wedding can be whatever you can imagine. We encourage creativity! Rough Creek Lodge can facilitate a small, intimate affair or a wedding experience of up to 300 friends and family… our entire Resort can be booked for your amazing day… or weekend!

Just want to have your closest friends and family with you at the Resort? Rough Creek Lodge is just a relaxing 90-minute drive from Dallas and Fort Worth, so additional guests can easily drive if needed.

Want to entertain the wedding party—or everyone—the day before (or after) the wedding? Activities abound: from archery to zip-lining, there is literally something for everyone here. Take the wedding party out for a cattle drive! Do a climbing wall contest. Take a hike, or bike our five-mile trail. Or relax poolside with cocktails, while discussing the next day’s events. Check out all there is to do! We guarantee no one will be bored.

And no one will be hungry, either! A mainstay here at Rough Creek Lodge, Chef Gerard Thompson is highly acclaimed for a reason: his unique culinary vision and style for dining is simply amazing—and the reason people drive from the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex to eat! Your “foody” guests will be completely enthralled, while the rest will just be overwhelmed by Chef’s signature dishes. So don’t be shy when planning your menu: from Hors d’Oeuvres to a personalized menu for your reception, you can expect nothing but perfection.

We promise that whatever you decide, whatever your vision and dream for your wedding day, that each guest will find your celebration at Rough Creek Lodge an affair to remember. We will shower your guests with our warm Texas hospitality, and arrange for their every need.

And we guarantee that your will remember Rough Creek Lodge as the perfect setting to start your new life together. Contact our Wedding Consultant.
