What's Bigger Than Getting Married?

There are few things bigger in Texas than a wedding - except for maybe football. Getting married in The Lone Star State is a big deal, but there are important steps to take to make sure you go about it properly. Marriage is hard work and a commitment to a lifetime relationship. The most successful marriages will start off on the right foot by building a healthy relationship. Here are other steps to consider.

  • Make Sure It's Right For You
    Marriage should be for a lifetime

    First, you better make sure that marriage is what you actually want; otherwise, your next mission might be researching divorce lawyers in Arlington. Such a relationship is not always for everyone. If you do want marriage and your partner doesn't, then you might consider whether or not that relationship has a real future. If marriage is right for both of you, what (or who) is standing in your way?

  • Book It Well In Advance
    The more planning you do the better

    There are many popular destinations around The Lone Star State for weddings. Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio are just a few of the major cities bustling with the business of matrimony. As soon as you know the date of your wedding, choose your venue and book it. Keep in mind that most venues require some sort of non-refundable deposit or down payment to secure your reservation.

  • Make It Official
    Get the marriage license in your county

    There is a 72-hour waiting period in Texas between getting your marriage license and the performance of the ceremony (except in certain cases such as military service). You both need to get the marriage license together from the county in which the ceremony will be performed. The marriage license is good for up to 90 days, so make arrangements to pick it up a few weeks in advance of the wedding.

Start Your Wedding Plans

Weddings can take up a lot of time to plan and, of course, money. On average, you can expect to spend anywhere from $14,000 to over $30,000 on a big Texas wedding, depending on your choices. It's a good idea to get started on selecting theme, colors, invitations, and all other necessities as soon as possible. Make sure both of you are involved in the process to make the experience less stressful.
