Planning your big day is no small task. Like any bride-to-be, you want every detail to feel personal and reflect your style. You deserve a celebration for the ages, that once-in-a-lifetime event that, more than anything, is authentically you.


When it comes to choosing where to host your nuptials, it can be hard to know where to start, especially in a city like Austin where options abound for any personality and budget. As arguably the oldest wedding venue on the block (we look really good for our age!), we at The Driskill have come up with a few tips to help you get started on your search for the perfect wedding venue.


- Choose your style. Are you more of a lavish or simple type? Traditional or edgy? All-inclusive or DIY? Your wedding day is all about celebrating your love story in a way that is specific to your personality, desires and needs. Based on your style, choose a venue that is attune to your tastes, and that provides just the right feel for your special day.


- As with searching for the perfect dress, don't be afraid to try on something different. Ask yourself, "Can I see myself getting married here?" Don't forget: this day is all about you and your loved one. Give yourself time to try out different venues, until you can answer a resounding "Yes!" to that question.


- Have fun! We know planning a wedding can be overwhelming, but we're confident it will all come together and be a celebration to remember for you and your guests.
