Planning for a Catholic wedding in San Antonio may seem like a daunting task. Here’s a checklist of things to help you figure out what to do.

Pick your dates

This is often the first thing on the list. That’s because as soon as you pick a date, the clock starts running. You can start scouting around for a church and reception venue once you’ve finalized the date.

Look for an officiant

That’s one of the most important things on your to-do list. The minister, priest or officiant you choose will set the tone of the event, The Knot says. You’ll want someone who can add to the solemnity of the ceremony all while maintaining a cheeriness to the occasion. That’s something an excellent officiant can do.

Pick a ceremony

Whether you want a Catholic wedding in San Antonio or a civil wedding, you’ll need to pick the type of ceremony before you move forward with anything else. Make sure to discuss this with your sweetheart.

Do an interview

Take the time to get to know your officiant. Is your officiant respectful of your beliefs? Are you and your officiant on the same page? Is your officiant all right with you writing and speaking your own vows? You’ll need to get these things out of the way first before you pick an officiant to marry you and the love of your life.

Get a license

Don’t forget to get your marriage license. The ceremony won’t be binding without a license. Be sure to know the requirements before you head out to city hall to apply for a marriage license. Some also have time restrictions that may apply so check with the people at city hall for more information. That way, you can get everything you need done all in one trip instead of wasting time going back and forth.
