I am new to Houston and we are looking for a ceremony and reception venue that’s affordable for approximately 100 guests. I am doing a pretty non traditional wedding, we really just want all of our close friends and family with us for a laid back party. I am not doing a wedding party, and we are asking a close friend to officiate us with a quick ceremony. My key elements are music, food & drink, and just a fun atmosphere where we can dance and see every one. I am looking for venues that will allow me to provide my own alcohol and choose my own catering to help with costs. I am in the galleria area, so anything in the greater Houston area would be great (heights, midtown, sugar land, downtown, galleria, etc)

If you are on facebook, there is a group called Bride to Bride and it is for Houston area. It’s the best group ever, and they can help you out!

I just got married at AvantGarden on Westheimer in Montrose and it was awesome. I was also looking for a venue for 100 people that was affordable and in the loop since 90% of our guests were from out of town (we are also transplants–welcome!). The space is definitely different than traditional wedding venues and is so beautiful when it is all done up. It’s not BYOB, but the drinks were fairly reasonable. You can bring in your own caterer–or use the awesome food truck on site to cater (awesome food, great pictures with the truck, and it was really inexpensive).
