It is so hard to give you a good area since Ike.

But I was thinking the beach. As far as I know you can still have it one the beach and just maybe have an open air tent. 

You can try the state park but I know they are still limited on what they are doing there. Of course you have the fancy ones of Moody Gardens or Hotel Galvez.

 http://www.galveston.com/weddings/ Has a lot of good information. I have been asking around but it is hard since Ike. 

 I would recommend going down there. Get a list together and just go down there and see.

 

Hope this helps!

We are actually getting married on the beach in Quintana on the beach. Which I am really happy about since this is us. We did think about surfside and renting a house for the weekend. But that changed to renting cabins on Quintana beach for the weekend.

Well, if you really want to go casual and fun, you could see about renting out the Rainforest Cafe and bringing in barbecue. If you want to go a little fancier, here are some options:

Major hotels with ballrooms: Moody Gardens, Galvez, Tremont, San Luis Resort, Conference Center (part of the San Luis Resort)

Historical sites: Garten Verein, Ashton Villa, etc.

Other places: Gaido’s/Pelican Club, Artillery Club (if you know a member)

And, of course, there are countless restaurants.

I think there is a park near Galveston that recently opened up. BBQ might work there.

Offbeat options: Cruise ship, Kemah Boardwalk

 

Good luck!

Hi Kujhawk!  I saw your question to me on another thread, but thought this was also a good place to reply.  I’m getting married in Kempner Park, where the Garten-Verein is located.  The ceremony is in the park, and then the reception will be at the Garten-Verein.  The places Ivorygirl mentioned are the ones that come to my mind immediately, but there are lots of great places.  PM me if you want more detail on any of the places.

kujhawk04–did you ever settle on a place in Galveston? 

I just started the looking process–I’m from SA, but my fiance and I will be living in Beaumont.  Like you, I’d love something casual, on the beach, but with a BBQ reception–laid back and fun. 

Let me know if you settled on something…I love your ideas!

We recently did a wedding at Moody Gardens and it was awesome. The aquarium was by far my favorite reception site ever!
