It’s hard to believe how many wedding venues have popped up all over Texas as more and more people realize how much of a demand there is! But one thing is for sure, out of the thousands across the state, there are only a few that are actually worth getting married at. So what we have done is compiled a list of the top 5 that we would recommend for you as you look for a venue in the greater Houston area. We factored a few things into our decisions. We wanted to make sure that they were run by good people who really were in business to make sure their clients were happy and aren’t afraid to go above and beyond. We also needed to make sure that they were actually beautiful and had all the useful features like bridal suites, adequate parking, good location, etc. So here is the list! Hope it helps!
#1. “Olde Dobbin Station”
This venue will provide a unique experience for its clients through the use of old structures built in the early 1900’s, restored to their original look and feel, while adding a vintage touch. The buildings were initialing used by oil companies as a “pumping station” and later became a famous place of fellowship for those in the community due to its Artesian Water Well. It became the community “swimming hole” according to many of the locals and remains a historical marker for the community and its residents. The McCoy’s are excited to breathe life back into these old buildings. www.oldedobbinstation.com

#4. “Bayou Bend”
There simply cannot be a lovelier locale for a wedding reception than the grounds of Bayou Bend — particularly when the azaleas are in full bloom —where towering oaks and pines create a verdant canopy to the eight formal gardens. The house is not open for tours but the gardens and north lawn, adjacent to the Diana Fountain are available.Brides with deep pockets and a certain faith in the weather have chosen this spot for many years and while it is not new, it is so special as to be worth consideration.Rental for the property (plus your cost of erecting a tent, rentals, perhaps replanting sod, security and all the other reception elements) range from approximately $7,500 to $15,000 depending on the guest count. www.mfah.org
#5. “The 1940 Air Terminal Museum”
This venue for special events in the greater Houston area. Educationally rich and architecturally beautiful, our facility has a unique and intimate setting that impresses every guest and event planner. Fine stucco designs, limestone panels, cool marble floors, and an elegant chandelier testify to Houston’s bygone Art Deco era.Exhibit rooms filled with artifacts, photographs, uniforms, vintage aircraft, and airline memorabilia chart the triumph and progression of both private and commercial flight in Texas history. The Museum also affords a front row vantage point to Hobby Airport’s diverse airport operations. Between airline traffic, business aviation, and frequent fixed wing and rotary wing general aviation traffic, the Museum has its own private air show every day!
