When considering wedding venues throughout Texas, you have many options. Indoors or outdoors, grand or simple. Chic? High class? Rustic? Themed? Your wedding should be the happiest day of your life, and you should get the wedding venue that reflects your and your future spouse’s personalities and a celebration of your union.
The best part of life in the Lone Star State, where everything is bigger, is that includes weddings! Whether you want an intimate gathering or an all-out showstopper, Texas has some of the most incredible, luxurious, and surprisingly affordable wedding venues for any design you have in mind.
Amazing Indoor Wedding Venues
Churches & Barns
Looing for a classic indoor wedding? Or something a little more specific to the location? Throughout Texas, you can find some of the most romantic Spanish influenced churches and cathedrals to host lavish weddings for rows of guests, as well as small-town, big-hearted churches that bring all your loved ones together close to your heart.
If you’re quite sure about a church wedding, but you are sure that you want something indoors and you’re up for trying some fun and rustic, what about a barn? Some of the barns in Texas are nicer than houses in other places, so if you started to laugh at the thought of it – take a look at these barns that include full bars, dance floors, and all the rustic charm.
Ballrooms & Museums
Okay, so you know you want an indoor wedding venue, but you don’t think you want something too formal or too informal. Classy, but fun. Maybe a little different. But grand. (of course – it should be easy to get everything you want in one venue, right?)
Consider if scheduling a ballroom or a museum as your venue is a good idea. Ballrooms give wide spaces that are great for mingling and make it easy to set up food, and of course, dance the night away at the reception. Museums of all types often rent their space out for weddings, and in Texas that includes the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, the Museum of Biblical Arts, and the Dallas Museum of Art, to name a few.
Amazing Outdoor Wedding Venues
In Texas, there are more ranches, country spaces, and fields of green than you can count. But, each of them can be uniquely perfect backdrops for your wedding. Venues accommodate outdoor settings all the time, and depending on your style, you can find a backdrop that ranges from the dramatic cityscape to the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico.
It’s popular in Texas to set up a wedding ceremony along a river, for example, like along the Guadalupe River at the Milltown Historic District and Cherokee Rose, or along the San Antonio River at the Guenther House. Additionally, pick a breathtaking location lakeside or on a high ridge overlooking the surrounding country for incredible landscapes to backdrop your romantic day.
If you want something a little more beach-friendly, you have a range of locations to choose from along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. Check out South Padre Island as one picture-perfect and affordable oceanside destination. Enjoy saying your vows at the water’s edge, with a Caribbean, tropical feel and an incredible view, all without having to leave the state that’s home to the best barbecue.
Big City Rooftop Wedding Venues
Whether you’re in Dallas, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, or one of Texas’ other cities that reach to the sky, you’ll find class, elegance, and unique Texas flair at gorgeous city-gazing rooftop wedding venues. Usually including restaurants, dance floors, and in-house entertainment to keep your guests amazed while the views of the surrounding city keep their eyes sparkling. If you’re not afraid of heights, and you’re not afraid of giving your guests a VIP, exclusive-event feeling at your wedding, consider a rooftop wedding venue.
