Getting married in Houston can be an exercise in stress and overspending. Here are a few venues we suggest for upcoming wedding ceremonies and, more importantly, receptions.
10. Harmony Wedding Chapel 8120 Gulf Freeway, 713-643-7777
First on our list is Harmony Wedding Chapel, the little chapel that could. This is about as close to Las Vegas as you can get in Houston. True, there are no Elvis impersonators, but we're guessing the folks at Harmony might be talked into letting you bring your own for a sizable tip. As you might expect, this is the least expensive venue on our list. It's also the venue that's closest to a freeway (it's on a Gulf Freeway access road). Be sure and give your guests (all 100 of them) good directions, or they'll spend a half hour taking the next exit and circling back. Cheesy? Yes, but also kinda quaint and seriously kitschy, which is just right for some weddings.
