The Texas Renaissance Festival (TRF), the nation’s largest Renaissance-themed event, has opened their wedding reservations for the 2023 season, which takes place over eight weekends from October 7 through November 26, 2023.

TRF has four wedding venues, three wedding packages, ministers/celebrants for any tradition, on-site catering, entertainment, and professional wedding planners.

“The Texas Renaissance Festival is about leaving the ordinary world behind to experience the fun and magic of a bygone era, and we’re bringing that to our TRF weddings as well,” said Christina Garcia, weddings coordinator of the Texas Renaissance Festival. “The Royal Celebration wedding ceremony incorporates the unique Renaissance charm of a carriage procession, bagpipes, Royal Guard escort and sword arch. The simple and elegant ceremonies take place in the iconic wedding venues of the Cathedral Chapel, Basilica, The English Garden, or The Rose Garden. Our inclusive packages and experienced event coordinators are here to help couples and their guests have a fantastic time at the romantic wedding of their dreams.”

The Texas Renaissance Festival is located one hour north of Houston, and is “an immersive celebration of food, fun and Renaissance magic with more than half a million visitors each year.”

TRF only has room for 100 weddings each year over eight themed weekends, including: The Queen’s Birthday (Opening Weekend), 1001 Dreams, Pirate Adventure, All Hallows Eve, Heroes & Villains, Barbarian Invasion, Highland Fling, and Celtic Christmas.
