What Wedding Guests Expect When They Travel to Your Texas Hill Country Destination Wedding

A destination wedding in Texas Hill Country offers so many possibilities for family bonding, reconnecting with old friends, and having a fabulous time! When planning your elegant Texas Hill Country Wedding at The Ivory Oak—Austin’s premiere luxury wedding venue—consider the main events guests can look forward to, in addition to your wedding ceremony and reception, when planning their trip:

Welcome Party What better way to make your guests feel at home in Texas Hill Country than with a fun Welcome Party! Generally planned for a day or two before the wedding, this party is a great way to kick off the wedding weekend festivities! Generally hosted by the bride and groom or their parents, the Welcome Party is a place for all wedding guests to gather for a cocktail party welcome reception.

Rehearsal Dinner If your Austin destination wedding is on the more intimate side, you’ll likely be inviting your out-of-town guests to your rehearsal dinner. Generally held the night before the wedding, this is the pre-game to the big day! While it’s traditionally hosted by the groom’s parents, the rehearsal dinner is now sometimes hosted by the couple themselves. It’s a more relaxed environment for them to spend time with guests who traveled to the location, sharing special memories prior to wedding day.

Day-After Wedding Brunch. You’re bound to have so much fun at your wedding reception at The Ivory Oak in Texas Hill Country that you won’t want your wedding to end! It’s common for destination weddings to have one final gathering the day after the wedding for brunch. This is a great opportunity to thank your guests for coming and say goodbye in an informal atmosphere. Generally, invitations to a day-after brunch are extended to all guests, and the event is hosted by whomever hosted the destination wedding.
