Congratulations! You are engaged! Now, let the wedding planning begin. This season of life can bring so much excitement, yet can easily become overwhelming. Luckily, I am also recently engaged and am knee-deep in flowers, cake testings and decorations.  For all you stressed brides out there, I have curated the complete list of Lubbock’s finest wedding go-to’s below. 

As any wedding planner would advise, the first step in wedding planning is scheduling a venue. Check out our blog highlighting Lubbock’s top venues to get started.  

Pro tip: Don’t forget to coordinate the wedding date with the venue and photographer.

Local Jewelers 

Now is the time to pull out those Pinterest boards loaded with pins of your dream rings. Years envisioning princess cut diamonds, halos and gold have prepared you for this! If you are anything like me, you want your wedding band to delicately complement your engagement ring and be everything that you ever dreamed of. If you have not already picked out the perfect ring for the bride (and the groom), consider visiting some of Lubbock’s local jewelers.

Wedding Dress Shopping
One of the most exciting parts of the wedding planning for me was the day I said “yes!” to the dress! When I was planning on where to go, I knew I wanted a unique experience with a boutique feel. Finding a dress that was different, elegant, and had that “wow” factor was the ultimate goal. Visiting any of the bridal boutiques in Lubbock will provide this experience.
