Wedding Planning Advice
With all of the events I've had the pleasure of being a part of for over a decade...I have so many experiences to share with you! While here, you may find inspiration for your wedding day, corporate function or the things I like to get into when I'm not planning like a BOSS!
For this SwaLaRue Events venue tour, we are stepping away from the city venues of Downtown Houston and taking in the nature that surrounds The Dunlavy, located at 3422 Allen Parkway in Houston, Texas.
The Dunlavy is a breakfast and lunch spot by day and a private event space by night. No matter what time of day you visit, you’ll enjoy a delicious, fresh assortment of food made on-site. The venue offers great versatility to adapt to your group size and desired set-up, providing indoor accommodations and outdoor space.
Overlooking the banks of Buffalo Bayou and Lost Lake, The Dunlavy is stunning inside and out for groups of all sizes to enjoy the views.

Nature surrounds this beautiful space whether it is transformed into a large hall or set up for an intimate outdoor gathering. The gorgeous chandeliers in the room magically fit with every decor style and set-up. Having an outdoor patio allows guests to spend time outside, get fresh air, and take in the scenery during a break from the dance floor.
As you check out venues and start designing your event, make life easier with the help of a professional. Here’s why you need to hire a planner ASAP.
