Planning for a Catholic wedding in San Antonio can come with a ton of details and stress. Here are a few tips to stay sane throughout the planning process:
The secret to stress-free wedding planning is to stay organized. For instance, to keep track of everything, you could make a list of the things that need to get done for the wedding. Beside every task, put in the name of the person in charge, whether that’s you, your fiancé or family and friends. This way, you won’t have to worry about missing out on important details.
Prepare the paperwork
Church weddings require documents like your baptismal certificate along with proof of your communion and confirmation. You’ll want to read through those requirements so your submissions will be complete. If you and your fiancé aren’t of the same faith, you could ask about intermarriage requirements instead, says The Knot.
Do a timeline
It can be hard to keep track of all the dates and requirements for a Catholic wedding in San Antonio. You might want to make a timeline of deadlines to help you keep track of important dates. For instance, you’ll need to meet with your officiant 9 or 11 months before the wedding to discuss details of the ceremony. Then you’ll need to talk to the church about 6 to 8 months in advance in case you or someone in your entourage wants to attend mass and receive communion before the wedding.
Trim your guest list
Do this 3 to 4 months in advance. You might also want to ask the church and your reception venue about this. Some won’t accept any changes to the guest list after a certain period so check in advance.
For an easier time at it, heed these planning tips. And when D-day comes, don’t forget to have fun.
