Just Engaged? Early Wedding Planning Steps To Take

Your engagement is something to celebrate, and you should feel free to take your time enjoying this relationship milestone. With that said, the start of your engagement period also marks the start of wedding planning. How long can you wait to begin making plans? What matters should you address first, and what can wait until closer to the wedding date? One of the first things you should do is take a moment to ensure that you and your partner are on the same page with what you want from your wedding experience. Arranging engagement photos is another important early step, one that you can take with Texas Old Town. In addition to hosting weddings, we do welcome couples who wish to schedule engagement or proposal pictures in our Texas Hill Country surroundings!

Do We Need To Begin Planning Our Wedding Right After We Become Engaged?

The time between a couple’s engagement and the time to start wedding planning can vary, just as the time between the engagement and wedding date can vary. If you feel that a long engagement period is better for you, taking more time to begin planning can have little impact on your event. However, if your goal is to be wed in a year or less after the proposal, putting off arrangements can make it more difficult to secure the date you want, or to find the right wedding vendors for your event.

Make Sure You And Your Partner Are On The Same Page With Wedding Planning

One early step to take is to make sure you and your partner have the same vision for your wedding experience. If you have already held discussions and each know where the other stands, this can be a decidedly short conversation! With that said, it is a good idea to make sure you are both comfortable on some of the less exciting matters, like setting a wedding budget.

Scheduling Engagement Or Proposal Portraits

Taking engagement or proposal portraits will give you lovely images to commemorate the moment you and your partner officially declared your intentions to stay together forever. These images also have practical benefits, as they provide great visuals for informal announcements and wedding invitations. In addition to hosting your wedding at our venue, you can schedule time to visit us with a photographer and create beautiful images surrounded by Texas Hill Country.
