San Antonio Wedding Guide


San Antonio Wedding

Planning your San Antonio wedding is fun and exciting, but probably a bit daunting as well.  San Antonio has plenty to offer as a wedding destination – scenic wedding venues, a deep and diverse cultural heritage, and a ton of high quality vendors that specialize in weddings and receptions, but there are also several things to keep in mind as you’re ironing out all the little details of your special day.

Planning an Outdoor San Antonio Wedding

Outdoor weddings are absolutely beautiful, especially amid the natural southern wonders of San Antonio.  If you’ve decided to tie the knot in any of the most popular wedding months, however, the extreme Texas heat could affect your plans.

Discuss the temperatures with your florist, cake designer, and caterer to decide on options that can withstand the heat.  You may want to consider a venue that offers an indoor facility for your reception – this not only saves the cake, but can also be a lifesaver if it happens to rain on your wedding day.


The Variety of a San Antonio Wedding

From waterside ceremonies to garden weddings to majestic cathedrals, the options are unlimited when it comes to wedding locations in San Antonio.  The picturesque River Walk is one of the most popular choices or you may consider the Joan Grona art gallery for a unique venue. 


San Antonio Wedding Planning: Tips and Ideas

As your wedding date gets closer, don’t forget to plan for any out-of-town guests.  Enlist the help of a friend to put together a mini-travel guide for visitors, outlining hotels, restaurants, salons, and other services that are located as close as possible to your ceremony location. 

If you’re planning a destination San Antonio wedding and aren’t familiar with the area, try to arrive ahead of time to meet with your vendors and to visit your venue.  It’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with the route from the hotel to the ceremony location to avoid any surprises on the big day.
