Lol. I don’t know anyone that has had a country themed wedding and I’ve lived in Texas my whole life. lol.

We had a fun 60’s All You Need is Love themed wedding, brunch as a matter of fact.

I would just find things you like and use those regardless of being in Texas. 🙂

Check out Fire Station 3.  Its an historic fire station reopening soon in Houston.  They are booking events for 2014 and 2015 now.  It is quite nice and unique.


Also Cullen’s in Clear Lake.  Its contemporary.

I’ve also lived in Texas most of my life and in cities there are a LOT of options for non-country wedding. Style Me Pretty has a whole section dedicated to Texas… maybe check out some of those? I’m sure the bulk are from either Dallas or Houston.

Yea, people tend to make Texas appear more country than it is. You’ll have no problem finding an urban venue in Houston.

CarolinaOak2014:  You shoudn’t have any problems… Lol Actually, since I started researching my wedding, I have yet to find a Barn, rustic, gazebo wedding you should be fine. 🙂 My wedding will be in Galveston about a 1.5 south of Houston. For a more historic, beachy casual feel. 

Depending on your budget, there are lots of options in Downtown/Galleria area, that are more of a moder, contemporary feel to them. I found a lot of them on TheKnot, hope that helps. Don’t get discouraged yet.

Lived in Texas for almost ten years and have NEVER been to a country themed wedding. Texas can be country with the rollings hills and cattle in certain locations, but in the larger cities its not. You won’t have trouble finding an urban location for your wedding. Don’t believe what you hear. Some people make money off the country bumpkin thing, but you won’t see people heading to work in Houston on horses.

 I agree with everyone else there are a TON on non country wedding locals in Houston. The Cypress/Spring area has lots of wedding/reception venues as well as the area of town south of the loop (Clear Lake, Pasadena, pearland, Sugarland), mostly halls and country clubs. If you want  something in town and more urban check out The Grove at Discovery Green, The Heights firestation, Houston City Hall, Hotel ZaZa, The Sam, or the Metro theater.

When I was thinking of having a low-key home wedding I came across a place in Houston called the Grove. Seemed like a pretty nice restaurant with outdoor space for ceremony.
