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.
