See Why Swank Soiree Calls Herself the Jackie Kennedy of Weddings
by Kaitlyn April 12
Classic and timeless with small hints of glam: that’s how Christy Record, lead planner of Swank Soiree, describes her style and approach to planning some of North Texas’s most gorgeous affairs!
“I like to say I am the Jackie Kennedy of weddings, approaching every wedding with style and class,” Christy says. And it’s easy to see why! The celebrations she helps plan and design stand the test of time, as Christy focuses on elements that go beyond trendy – they’ll be just as beautiful decades from now – which is also what she hopes for her couples!
“I value not only the wedding celebration but the marriage that follows. I only take a limited number of weddings each year allowing me to spend quality time getting to know my clients and infusing what I’ve learned about them into their wedding details.” Scroll below to see two weddings planned by Swank Soiree and get to know Christy even better!
A Classic Fall Affair

If you’re wondering if fall color palettes can translate to classic and timeless weddings, the answer is YES!
“My favorite thing about Sydnie and Karl’s wedding was all the emotion followed by the huge smile on Sydnie’s face! That, coupled with the perfect pairing of her fall wedding colors, was nothing short of perfection.”
Christy likes to stay pretty true to her signature style, but of course, takes into account the personalities and stories of each of her couples and makes sure that’s infused into each wedding. “My style varies slightly with the uniqueness of each client. Overall, you’ll see a very classic and timeless wedding with clean lines and small hints of glam.”

“Lauren and Ashton’s wedding holds a special place in my heart — they were our first wedding back from the pandemic shutdown. With Lauren’s trust, we were able to pull off everything we planned for prior to the pandemic. I loved how we were able to make every element personal in their wedding by using the crest all around the room. We started with the invitations and carried it through by adding it to the dance floor, cake, her mask and koozies, and we used the floral elements on the program and menu cards.”
Christy and the Swank Soiree team believe that a successful wedding planning process starts with putting your trust in the right vendors – starting with the planner, of course! “When looking for your planner, hire someone you connect with. This allows you to not only trust the other creative partners, but the overall process making it something you’ll enjoy.”
