Our Top 5 Wedding Venues in Houston

We are four days (4!) away from Christmas and I’m giddy with excitement! Our house smells of Christmas cookies, Bing Crosby is singing while I type this and I can’t help but think of all the sweet girls who are about to get the best gift of all … a FIANCÉ!

Did you know that Christmas Day is the most popular day of the year to get engaged? In fact, the wedding industry has developed the term “Bridal Christmas” for the months of January and February because during this time venues and vendors will book anywhere from 40-60% of their clients during these months – that’s crazy!

Since a wedding venue is usually the first thing most brides want to cross off their list, we wanted to put together a list of our 5 favorite wedding venues in the Houston area. Pour yourself {another} cup of coffee, sit back and relax because this post is bursting with helpful information for you!

Please note: venues are listed in alphabetical order, not preference. 

 

Magnolia Meadows

This is the newest wedding venue on our list. They hosted their very first wedding back in October and guests loved the venue’s rustic charm. Their pergola is the perfect setting for outdoor ceremonies while their barn provides an excellent option for an indoor ceremony. From the chandeliers to the large oak doors custom touches can be seen throughout.

This year Olde Dobbin Station’s chapel was restored. Not wanting to alter the original architecture too much, the owners made the tough decision to enclose the chapel and make it climate controlled. I think the grooms have been especially grateful since they now have a space all to themselves to get ready in.

Out of all of the wedding venues in Houston, I have no doubt Chip and JoJo would choose The Farmhouse to get married again if they had to. Afterall, it is what shiplap dreams are made of!
