Five Wedding Planning Questions Every Bride Wants to Know!
Alright, so he asked you the big question! Start planning your wedding and dreaming of your big wedding day! This is easier said then done. Fortunately, like almost everybody else, this is probably your first time to plan a wedding. Getting started is the hardest part. Gruene Estate has been part of hundreds of weddings over the last decade. Here are our five wedding planning questions that every bride wants to know!
Every bride wants their wedding day to be memorable. How can you make your wedding event stand out with out breaking the bank? Don’t think big details here. The secret to throwing a memorable event and achieving that wedding “wow factor” is in the small details. Focus on details that reflect you and your grooms personalities. For example, a his and her signature cocktail. Signature cocktails are a perfect way to create a drink that reflects who you are as individuals. The options are limited only to your imagination. Southern Tapsters is a fabulous resource for all your mixed drink needs for a Texas Hill Country wedding in Gruene.
That One B.F.F.
Feeling overwhelmed on how to choose your bridal party? We are seeing a rapidly growing trend of brides and grooms forgoing the wedding party altogether and just choosing a maid of honor and best man. That is totally fine. At Gruene Estate we like to say, “your wedding your way!” It’s your event, so plan it how you want. Large or small wedding party, it’s up to you!
Mo Money Mo Prolems
Couples are often concerned with staying within their wedding budget. How do brides and grooms throw a wedding that is cost effective but stays within their budget? Decide as a couple what your priorities are, negotiables and non-negotiables: live band, floral, décor, you name it and then put it into either category. Once you create your lists, then you can go eliminate or alter accordingly. For example, floral arrangements might be a negotiable item. A great way to throw an amazing wedding but eliminate cost would be to use lots and lots of greenery! Greenery is smashing and budget friendly! At Gruene Estate, we have many brides that use eucalyptus, smilax, and ferns to create memorable centerpieces, bouquets and installations without breaking the bank.
How do you choose a wedding theme and color palette? Gruene Estate takes advantage of the beautiful natural surroundings that is the Texas Hill Country. Therefore, we see lots of boho weddings, rustic weddings with flairs of elegance, and hill country weddings with stunning greenery and floral installations. If you are having trouble narrowing down your style, then we would recommend creating mood boards in Pinterest. Style and mood boards both digital (the internet) and analog (from magazines the old fashion way) can help you narrow down those design decisions.

Dress It Up
Brides often want to know when and how many bridal gown fittings they should schedule. We cannot speak for every bride, but it seems like the wedding dress is typically our brides most cherished accessory for her day! If you don’t have a wedding dress, we refer Gruene Estate brides to Celebrations Bridal and Prom in downtown New Braunfels. Typically, brides will do three to four fittings with alterations in between. One or two after you buy, one a month before the wedding date and one two weeks prior to the big day. Really, just work out a schedule that’s best for you. It’s your day and your dress. Enjoy the gown process, it is so much fun!
