Affordable Reception Halls in Houston

Are you looking for affordable reception halls in Houston TX?  There are literally thousands of banquet halls to choose from in Houston.  The key is to find one that fits your budget.


This should be the process you take when looking for the right reception hall:

  1. Research online for venues and locations that are suitable for your event.
  2. Call for pricing.
  3. Narrow down your list to 3-5 halls.
  4. Go visit each hall.
  5. Pay particular attention to staff and manager.  Unhappy people or an unhappy manager usually means that they do not take pride in putting on events.  Steer clear of this type of banquet hall.  Unfortunately, there are quite a few of these halls in Houston TX.
  6. Once you decide on your reception hall, be sure to thoroughly read the contract before signing it.  Don't be afraid to haggle or negotiate.  If something is not to your liking, don't sign until the reception hall agrees to do what you are asking.
These are just a few tips for choosing the right party hall in Houston TX.  More to come...

Reception Halls in Houston

Choosing the right-sized Houston reception hall is an important detail when selecting a venue for your special event.  Halls that are too big can seem cavernous and isolating.  This is not a good way to create intimacy and a festive atmosphere amongst your guests.  Conversely, choosing a reception hall that is too small can be a disaster too.  This creates a feeling of claustrophobia.  I view the selection of a party hall as something similar to Goldilocks and her porridge.  You have to find the one that is just right before pulling the trigger!

Here are some pics of some beautiful halls in Houston.

Banquet Halls in Houston Texas

 Reception Halls in Houston TX
This banquet hall is from a downtown Houston hotel.  Many of the downtown hotels have been refurbished and are now competitive with many of the suburban reception halls in Houston.  If you are having a big wedding that a large amount of out-of-town guests are coming to, it may be a good idea to try and have a central location somewhere downtown so everyone has something to do (tourist stuff outside of wedding events).  Downtown, midtown, and the memorial park area all offer this.  And there are over a dozen quality hotels to choose from.  They all have excellent service and spacious banquet halls.  Details to come...

Lighting a Reception Hall in Houston TX

Lighting plays a major role in reception hall ambiance

The lighting in reception halls in Houston makes a huge difference in the mood of the room.  Soft mood lighting creates and intimacy that is seldom found in large spaces.  Ask your decorator about cost-cutting tips with lighting.  IKEA is a great place to buy cheap lamps that allow you to create your own lighting.  This hall in Burbank, CA has 12 different lighting options.  In your opinion, what mood does the above picture give off?

Reception Halls Houston

Large, dome-shaped halls are ideal for larger weddings and bigger decoration budgets.  If your decoration budget is tight, you should probably try and rent a smaller, more intimate halls.  These are much easier to decorate.  There is nothing worse than being in a sparsely decorated hall.  This gives off a feeling of isolation and institutionalism.  Smaller, intimate halls are perfect for medium-sized weddings with 200 or fewer guests.  Also ask your wedding planner or decorator if they have experience decorating both large and small wedding halls.
