First and foremost, make sure you and the soon-to-be spouse set a reasonable budget. Don’t torture yourself and put a $10,000 venue on your list when you can really only afford $3,000. It’s just going to break your heart and waste your time.

2. Check and see if the venue is available on your “chosen” date (or month, or even time of year).

Most Hill Country wedding venues have websites, so take some time and browse through them. Many of them have online calendars, and if not, they’re liable to have a contact email address. Check with them for a rough estimate of availability.

Texans like their own space. And plenty of it. Make sure to give your guests plenty of elbow room when seated and mingling room when standing. One way to discreetly determine this is to ask at the site visit, “What number of guests is most successful in this space?” Just because you can fit 150 people into a room, doesn’t mean you should.

4. Roughly plan your event (ceremony/reception) and determine if this venue fits your needs.
