Houston Wedding Venue Red Carpet Astorian
Venue: The Astorian
One big question, two different vibes, so many Houston wedding venues. Should you go big, grand and glamorous, or keep it small, intimate and delicately detailed?

Within these two umbrella categories, there are, of course, countless personal interpretations. One couple’s big “luxury Houston wedding” may involve towering centerpieces, formal attire and live-band entertainment. For another couple, a grand, opulent wedding may entail aerial bartenders, ice-luge martinis and fireworks. On the flip side, one couple’s “intimate wedding” may be a small rustic affair, while another’s may feature a string quartet and garden ceremony, followed by private dining in a fine Houston restaurant. As you decide what kind of wedding atmosphere and experience will best fit your special day (and accommodate your wedding guest count and wedding budget), we invite you to check out these 11 Houston wedding venues and their unique offerings.
