A fantastic suburb of the Dallas area, northeast of town on Lake Ray Hubbard, lies Garland with a population of nearly 250,000 people. Unlike other surrounding areas, Garland is more of a blue collar, worker type vibe. Therefore, if you are looking for a more low key, potentially budget friendly option, this city is ideal for your wedding.
