Every wedding has its unique love story to tell, and every love story includes an imaginative storyteller, a romantic relationship between two people, the most extravagant ornamentation to create the ambiance of your dreams and most importantly, a beautiful fortress to host the ceremony of two becoming one. The Richard M. Borchard (RMB) Regional Fairgrounds incorporates all of this and so much more in order for you to have the wedding you’ve only heard about or seen in fairytales.

Fancy, chic, country, inside, outside, big and small, the RMB Regional Fairgrounds in Robstown, Texas, can accommodate all. With more than 230,000 square feet of flexible event space to offer and a 700-person capacity, they are sure to please. Their 20,000-square-foot grand ballroom offers an elegant indoor setting with the option to downsize to a 15,000-square-foot or a 5,000-square-foot space.

The RMB Regional Fairgrounds also provides an indoor, climate-controlled 50,000-square-foot exhibit hall and a covered outdoor equestrian center. This 45-acre complex, as well as the breathtaking meadow surrounded by the various venues, has plenty of outdoor space to accommodate and transform into your very own heaven for one of the most special days of your life.

The RMB Regional Fairgrounds knows how stressful the wedding process can be, which is why they are here to lift that burden as much as possible by making it easier than ever to plan your wedding.

Wedding planners are the storytellers of your ultimate fairytale wedding; you give them your ideas and they turn them into something spectacular. Sales and Marketing Manager Angela Ridge not only will give you peace of mind during the entire evolution of your wedding with her friendly and professional customer service, but she will make it her goal to transform the wedding of your dreams into reality.

With more than 100 years of combined event and wedding planning experience, as well as their all-inclusive wedding packages, you’re sure to have more time to relax – you might even have enough money leftover to afford that luxurious honeymoon with your Prince Charming.

These all-inclusive wedding packages not only include event planning down to the nitty-gritty details without any hidden costs, but they’ve also established a partnership with Leana Lopez-Yates and her team of local professional decorators to offer more options to brides when choosing color schemes, themes and décor, which means you have hundreds of options to customize your wedding.

Every bride brings something different to the table, so whether you are a “glitz and glam” type of girl looking to have a dazzling wedding, a quirky girl full of spontaneity looking to have a wedding with pops of color or a good ol’ country gal looking to have a picturesque rustic wedding, La De Da Events will be sure to create the “smiles, oohs and ahs” you expect to have on your big day.

Now that you’ve got the venue and decorations taken care of, what’s a fairytale wedding without a grand feast? Look no further because the RMB Regional Fairgrounds has got you covered. Their in-house, full-service catering staff offers a variety of menu options sure to please you and your guests. Choose from a plated sit-down formal setting or a buffet, “serve yourself” style, included in the all-inclusive wedding packages.

If you’re in the mood for Italian, you are entitled to have a full-blown Italian dinner; if you want to be treated like royalty, you can choose from several elegant dinners that are fit for a queen; and lastly, if you want to stick with the country theme the venue ever so graciously offers, you can have yourself a South Texas country dinner, a fiesta right off the Southwestern grill or Texas-style barbecue.

All entrees are served with premium Colombian coffees and freshly brewed iced tea. (Ask the professional sales staff for more information on cash bar and bartender services.)

Country weddings take shape and are often influenced by the nature that surrounds the area. The RMB Regional Fairgrounds takes great pride in the tranquil country setting that envelopes the venue, as well as the spacious indoor facilities that acclimate the guests.

When a bride and groom begin to plan their wedding, one of the things they must consider is if they want it to take place indoors or outdoors. For some couples, the fresh air and natural beauty of a romantic outdoor setting is ideal, and for others, the comfort and adaptability of an indoor location is preferable.

Luckily, the RMB Regional Fairgrounds offers the best of both worlds because one bridezilla that not even the RMB wedding planners can control is Mother Nature. Any outdoor wedding is at her mercy, and you have to protect your event and your guests accordingly. An indoor wedding, of course, eliminates any chance of weather interfering with the original planning and is generally more comfortable, as well. The beauty of planning an indoor celebration is that clients can transform the space in any way they like; they can even make it look and feel like the outdoors.

The RMB Regional Fairgrounds can lend itself to the client’s envisioned theme if conceived creatively and executed properly. Imagine transforming a ballroom into a lavish garden with lush flower centerpieces and accents of elegant trees, plants and stones. The possibilities are boundless, and it’s all in the details.

The RMB Regional Fairgrounds bases its customer service on a very important philosophy: “How Y’all Doin’?” The “How Y’all Doin’?” customer service program employs 10 goals to help maintain a first-rate facility by providing top-notch service to their customers, and it encourages the staff to go out of their way to make sure all visitors feel at home and that their first and lasting impression is a positive one.

Getting married in the country can set the perfect backdrop for your perfect type of wedding. The RMB Regional Fairgrounds can accommodate every single type and theme of country wedding, from western country and country chic to old southern country and more. Look no further, and make the Richard M. Borchard Regional Fairgrounds your first choice wedding destination as you look forward to the happily ever after you truly deserve.
