The time you spend planning your wedding will help you ensure that everything is in place for you to truly enjoy your special day. With that said, there are some tasks that you will have to address on the day itself, making the hours before your celebration important. Fortunately, you can prepare for this and make sure everything goes smoothly, giving you more time to focus on preparing for your walk down the aisle. Your wedding party members and vendors can take some of the pressure off of this time before your ceremony. Texas Old Town also helps by giving you sixteen hours of venue access as part of our standard amenities. With this added time, you can more easily have everything in place before your event officially begins!

1. Make Sure Your Decorations, Beverages, And Other Important Items Arrive On Time

Different wedding vendors can bring in many of the items and goods they need to tend to your wedding. However, there will be some that you are responsible for. You can bring decorations and beverages in early thanks to your sixteen hours of access. This makes the setup less stressful, and ensures that everyone has plenty of time to dress. You can discuss the transport of the cake with your baker. While you may be able to save money by picking it up and taking it to our venue yourself, you can reduce stress by paying for its delivery.

2. Have Your Hair And Makeup Styled

By taking advantage of a trial session offered by hair and makeup specialists, you can make the actual styling on your wedding day easier. This is because trial sessions let stylists know what you want as well as how to achieve your preferred look. We offer dressing suites for both the bridal party and groom’s party, so everyone can gather to dress and enjoy styling. Make sure you pre-select the order for your bridesmaids to be styled, and that everyone knows when they should expect to have their turn.

3. Take Your First Look Photos

First look photos are not a necessary part of your pre-ceremony plans. With that said, they do offer some advantages to couples who choose to take them. One is that you have a short time together to connect and look forward to the ceremony. Another is that by taking pictures together before the ceremony starts, you can shorten the time between it and the start of your wedding reception, which means your guests are not forced to wait as long between events.
