We understand that wedding planning can sometimes be a bit overwhelming. After all, there are so many moving parts that need to be considered! Arguably one of the biggest decisions you will make during the planning process is deciding where you will host the event! Here are a few things you should look for in a Houston wedding venue! 

A Space For The Bride AND Groom To Get Ready

 

One thing to consider before booking a Houston wedding venue is if there is enough space for you and the entire bridal party to get ready. Are there designated separate rooms for the gals and the fellas? From experience, we’ve learned that wedding days run much smoother if the bridal party can get ready on-site. By doing so, you’ll be much more relaxed. You won’t have to worry about transporting everyone to the venue with just moments to spare before the ceremony! By getting ready on-site, you can leisurely get pampered by your hair and makeup team. 

At Madera Estates, we have suites created for the bride and the groom! The bridal suite is a large stunning space composed of FOUR rooms! There is more than enough space, for a bride, her girls, and her glam squad! On the other side of the venue, you’ll find a cabin style man-cave for the groom and his groomsmen. The guys will love playing foosball and lounging on the leather sofas while sipping on some brews. Having your bridal party on-site means that you won’t have to wait for someone to arrive to the location before starting photos! 

Ceremony & Venue At The Same Location

 

If you want to make the experience as easy as possible for your guests, consider a venue that can accommodate both the ceremony and reception! By doing so, your guests won’t have to worry about traveling to a new location. Plus you can smoothly transition from the ceremony to the cocktail hour and then to the reception! At Madera Estates, our venue has an array of ceremony options. You can opt for an outdoor ceremony next to our grand fireplace or in the terrain of our wooded property. Some couples even choose to have their ceremony indoors in our hacienda ballroom! After all, the mesmerizing chandeliers in the hacienda set a beautiful ambiance for a ceremony! In which case, once the couple have finished exchanging vows, the space can be quickly transitioned into a beautiful reception space! 

Plan B For Inclement Weather

 

If you’ve always dreamt of an outdoor ceremony, it’s important to understand that sometimes mother nature has other ideas in mind. Although most of our wedding celebrations go off without a hitch, it’s always nice to have a beautiful Plan B option! As mentioned previously, our hacienda ballroom can easily be transitioned from a ceremony space to a reception hall! Our team is trained to know how to easily accommodate an emergency indoor ceremony. Don’t let the weather ruin your big day because you didn’t have an alternative option! 

Plenty Of Scenery For Photos

 

Your photographer will thank you for booking a venue with a variety in scenery! Imagine getting ready at your venue and not having to leave the property until send-off! Not only will this give you more time for photos, but you won’t have to allocate a portion of your budget on transportation. At Madera Estates, we have a variety of locations on-site for you and your bridal party to take photos. After all, we understand that you don’t want all your pictures to look the same! Some of our favorite spots include the wooded grounds, the tropical palm tree foliage, the patio, and even the water feature near the entrance. 

Kitchen On-Site

 

It’s no secret that no one wants to eat a cold dinner! We’re sure you’ll agree, no matter how amazing the food tastes, cold food doesn’t seem to satisfy as well as a warm plate. At Madera Estates, we have a large industrial style kitchen that will ensure food is delivered to your guests at the perfect temperature! This is an element that is often overlooked when people are searching for their wedding venue. Make sure you consider it! 

A Designated Spot For Cocktail Hour

 

Does the venue have space for cocktail hour? Most couples want a buffer period between the ceremony and reception. After all, this gives the newlyweds a great opportunity to sneak away for a sunset photoshoot! Plus, your guests will love chatting while sipping a drink and some yummy hors d’oeuvres! At Madera Estates, we have a beautiful covered terrace for your guests to relax before a night of dancing! 

Enough Parking Spaces

 

As obvious as it sounds, does the venue you’re considering have enough parking spaces for all your guests? The last thing you want is for your guests to have to drive around town looking for an available parking spot. Make sure you ask for parking capacity when touring venues! 

Handicap Accessible

 

Weddings are often a great excuse for a family reunion! It’s important that your wedding venue is handicap accessible for any guests who may need accommodations. Some things to consider are ramps and wide bathroom doors. Be sure to check for these during your venue tours! 

An Awesome Sound System

 

Have you ever been to a wedding where you couldn’t hear the vows or the speeches? Maybe you’ve even experienced some unbearable microphone feedback. Make sure to ask to test the sound system before you book a venue! Regardless of how beautiful the space is, bad sound can be an unpleasant experience for your guests.
