Corpus Christi Wedding Planning: Weather Considerations
It’s not uncommon to see glowing brides saying their vows outdoors in this gorgeous town – especially during the months of March, April, May, October and November. These spring and fall months bring temperatures in the 80’s and lots of sunshine. In June, July, and August – the Southern humidity can make an outdoor wedding difficult, but there are many different indoor venues to choose from.
Corpus Christi Wedding Planning: Highlights of the City
From the museum district of Corpus Christi (where one can find the Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History and the Harbor Playhouse Theatre) to North Beach and the Texas State Aquarium – there are numerous tourist attractions and points of interest. By avoiding tourist seasons, you can save a great deal of money. During events that attract large numbers of tourists, hotel room rates are generally higher, as well as vendor fees – from caterers to DJs. The Concrete Street Amphitheater, House of Rock, and American Bank Center occasionally book huge talent that draws in massive crowds. Doing your research before booking your wedding date can help stretch that wedding budget a lot further.
Tips for a Fantastic Corpus Christi Wedding
If you’re planning a destination wedding, become familiar with the area long before the big day. Make plans to visit your wedding vendors and tour at least a few possible ceremony and reception venues. Seeing pictures online or in a brochure is very different from actually seeing a space in person. In addition, take measures to ensure that your guests will be comfortable – from helping them book hotel rooms to making them aware of nearby shops, restaurants, and other necessities. Investigate options to transport out-of-town guests to and from the ceremony and reception locations.
