Choosing your Houston Wedding Venue
Houston's wedding industry is booming, and there are more options than ever on where and how to get married. Small, intimate weddings, off-beat, unique weddings, or your traditional ballroom affair, you're covered!
When I meet with couples, I always joke with them that the venue search is the next, biggest choice after choosing who they want to marry! It's the biggest choice for three reasons:
1. It's the bulk of your wedding budget (if you include food, beverage, possible rentals)
2. It sets the tone for your entire wedding design- the look and feel for the night
3. It begins to set the experience you'll be building for your guests from here on
Houston Modern Wedding Venues
In today's post, I want to focus on Houston's Modern Wedding and Event Venues. These are typically described as a room or building with clean lines, neutral or white color schemes, unique, modern architecture and boast open, well thought out spaces.
Located in the Bellaire area, off of 610 (South of the Galleria) 5226 Elm is both an event venue and photography studio. The ballroom area has tall ceilings, all white walls and is a blank space for you to play with lighting, draping and any color scheme you can imagine. They have a gorgeous outdoor courtyard as well as some unique rooms for an interactive layout. Website
Note: You will need to rent all of your tables and chairs!
Asia Society Museum
Both Museum and Event or Wedding venue, the layout of the space is just gorgeous. Unique water features make the space feel serene, with a ton of natural light. You are able to host both your ceremony and reception on site and the staff is amazing to work with! Website
Note: There is also a back up Indoor Ceremony space if weather isn't on your side!
Hyatt Regency Galleria
This hotel makes the list as it's interiors are modern in colors, with funky chandeliers and open pre-function space. They have unique options to host many events for your wedding day weekend, as well as large parties of 500! Centrally located and with a beautiful lobby, even if you don't host your wedding here, the room blocks are convenient!
Note: Their Lobby Bar and Breakfast areas rock!
Houston Event Venue
Such a vague name, but this space is a photography studio when it's not hosting events. Parking doesn't require valet (yay!) and they have two spaces, one smaller and perfect for a ceremony, one larger for a reception. Exposed bricks and white walls, with open ceilings bring in a touch of industrial; but, I personally love a space you can make into any theme you'd like! Website
Note: You will need to bring in all tables and chairs- any lighting will be crucial to setting the tone!
