I have to admit, I have a preference for non-traditional wedding venues. Museums, parks, private homes...I just love the idea of taking an unexpected place and turning it into a beautiful space to hold a wedding. However, as I participate in more and more weddings behind the scenes (I am currently an intern for an event planning company), I realize the logistical convenience of holding your wedding celebration at a hotel, country or social club, or catering hall. Thus, the case for the hotel wedding emerged. It's amazing the resources that are available to you when you hold an event in a five-star venue. Fully-stocked kitchen, tons of waitstaff, top-notch audio visual equipment...the list could go on and on. Have a slight mishap with the cake icing-have the in-house pastry chef come by and do a little touch-up work. DJ missing in action-utilize the hotel's in-house sound system to pipe out some music until the DJ arrives. And in Texas, there is no shortage of superb hotels and clubs to hold you next celebration. And many of them are not as traditional as you may think. So brides, check out these amazing venues:
