It’s time to plan your dream wedding again! People across the country put their celebratory wedding plans on hold when COVID-19 hit, but the great news is that wedding venues and the services needed to conduct weddings are immediately allowed to open. So let us help you get started!
What are the Guidelines? –
As of May 5, 2020, indoor wedding venues that are not churches, congregations, or places of worship may open immediately if adhering to the 25% occupancy rate per recent statements made by Governor Abbott in his plan to re-open Texas. In addition, reception services are also permitted to resume at the same occupancy rate. Better still, these occupancy limits do not apply to weddings and receptions held outdoors—and Boerne is chock-full of indoor and outdoor wedding venues! You can read Governor Abbott’s full update here.
UPDATE: As of July 2, 2020 - The governor states that “For any outdoor gathering in excess of 10 people, other than those set forth [above] in paragraph numbers 1, 2, or 4, the gathering is prohibited unless the mayor of the city in which the gathering is held, or the county judge in the case of a gathering in an unincorporated area, approves of the gathering, and such approval can be made subject to certain conditions or restrictions not inconsistent with this executive order.” So, when planning an event at one of the Hill Country’s local venues, people should find out if the owner or venue manager has received approval from either the City’s Mayor Tim Handren or Kendall County Judge Darrel Lux. They must approve all events with an anticipated attendance of more than 10 people, and this approval is contingent upon the health and safety protocols in place to keep the staff and attendees safe. Here is the full update from Governor Abbott.
Texas Hill Country wedding venues exude elegance! The Boerne and Kendall County areas have several venues to choose from including small, medium, and large venues! You’ll find that these venues contain both indoor and outdoor spaces that will accommodate your vision and your select guest list. Many of these spots have incredible, breathtaking views of the surrounding Hill Country area that will make your ceremony, memories, and photos both stunning and unforgettable.
