An Insider’s Guide to Planning a Perfect Hill Country Wedding


If you are like most newly engaged brides, it takes a couple of weeks for the excitement and enthusiasm from staring at your brand-new sparkly bling to wear down and really dive deep into wedding planning mode.  But where do you start?!  This guide will give you a helpful breakdown of the steps that go into planning a wedding, and how to create that fairytale moment right here in Boerne. 

Steps 1, 2 & 3 make the difference

The first three things a newly engaged couple should do are:  determine your budget, assemble a ‘planning team’ – or consider hiring a planner, and pick a wedding date and time.  Soon after those three are established comes the fun part - start touring venues! 

Pick the Perfect Place

Boerne has exploded as a well-known Hill Country destination wedding location, and for good reasons!  Finding a ceremony and reception venue with wonderful owners and staff, gorgeous views of Boerne’s rolling hills, and pieces of rustic charm all rolled in is not hard given the ample number of locations throughout the city.  Choosing your perfect venue, however, can prove difficult because each venue is literally that beautiful.  Having over twenty wedding venues in a ten-mile radius can intimidate any couple, but start with a few simple questions to narrow down the list:

  • Do you want your wedding indoors or outside? 
  • How many guests do you anticipate? 
  • What month will you be getting married in? 

Determining the answer to these questions will help you pick a romantic and picturesque place in Boerne to say “I do.” Here is a quick list in the Boerne area!

Surround Yourself with the Best of the Best

So now you’ve got your fiancé, wedding date, and venue secured…what’s next?  While still about eight to ten months away from your big day, it is important to begin nailing down some of the other main vendors: photographer, videographer, caterer, florist, band or DJ, and any rentals your venue does not provide.  Being the wedding capital of Texas (wait, did we just make that up?), Boerne has a TON of amazing wedding professionals ready to make every couple’s big day run smoothly, while creating and capturing those moments for years to come.  The greatest thing about hiring vendors from Boerne is that while working with our small-town businesses, and with owners that get to know you and your vision personally, you will receive the greatest customer service and professionalism to make your big day picture-perfect. 

Say YES to the Dress!

Probably one of the biggest dilemmas most brides face, no matter what part of Texas they are getting hitched, is what style of dress to choose.  Like many of the vendor decisions listed above, dress shopping should be completed no later than eight months away from walking down the aisle.  Remember to take into consideration the time of year you will be getting married, whether the ceremony and reception will be indoors or outside, and how you want to feel on that momentous day.  While there are so many styles to choose from, one of Boerne’s many great attributes is the weather.  At any point during the year, our average high temperature is at least near 60, which allows for your dress - whether it be a mermaid style at a beautiful outdoor venue under century-old oaks, or a big ballgown on the dance floor of a gorgeous country club – to be the most stunning and comfortable piece of clothing you have ever worn.

Wedding Memories in Boerne will Last a Lifetime

As you begin to let the thrill of your engagement wind down, and you start to make some big decisions for your historic day, one thing is certain:  it does not matter what your style is, your background, your budget, Boerne is the ultimate destination for couples to create wedding day memories to last a lifetime.
