“Everything’s better in Texas,” goes the old saying, and that is especially true when it comes to weddings. With miles and miles of rolling ranches, beaches, urban wonderlands, and every other style of venue imaginable, and reliably gorgeous weather, there is no place like Texas to tie the knot. Whether you are looking for a hipster DIY BBQ feast in Austin, a beachside ceremony in Galveston, or a chic urban party in a Houston ballroom, Texas wedding venues have what you need. Texas wedding locations run the gamut from rustic to chic, from inexpensive to extravagant, and from loyally local to the global, so before you start hunting for the perfect location for your wedding in Houston, Austin, Dallas, or Waco, you should do some research on the absolute best wedding venues in each city.
One of the best Houston wedding venues, hands down, is Ashton Gardens, an enchanted castle in the middle of a picturesque 20-acre forest. The venue itself is relatively small, accommodating only up to 350 guests at a time, but incredible details like the glass chapel for the ceremony, the romantic paths winding through the seemingly enchanted forest, and the beautiful fountain in the courtyard all work together to make Ashton Gardens feel more like a fairy tale than like just another Houston wedding locations. Three Bride’s Choice awards and dozens of online accolades confirm that Ashton Garden is simple the best place to have a wedding in Houston.
