6. The Corinthian 202 Fannin, 713-222-2002

The Corinthian is exquisite - and sadly, expensive. Prices start at $6,000 and run up to as much as $15,000 for a basic wedding and reception. And no, those are not all inclusive prices. (Ouch!) But the setting, service and ease of arrangements make the Corinthian a go-to site if you have the money.

This is one of the more solemn sites on our list, which makes for a nice alternative to a church ceremony while keeping the formal, dignified atmosphere. The same area some use for a ceremony, other couples use for the reception so the Corinthian's layout gives you lots of options. At a price.

5. The Parador 2021 Binz, 713-529-3050

The historic Parado is a landmark building that was once a church (notice the high dome of the central ballroom). It's perfect for a ceremony or reception. Prices start at $1,500 and run to $7,500 for a basic package. Besides the indoor ballrooom, you can have your choice of a courtyard or garden wedding.

4. FantaSea Yacht Charters Kemah Boardwalk, 281-969-4774

Here's a different sort of wedding, perfect for a Gulf Coast couple - the FantaSea Yacht. For a mere $120 or so per person (100 people minimum), you get a four hour cruise, a uniformed captain to perform your ceremony while at sea, hors d'oeuvres, a dinner buffet, wedding cake, open bar and a DJ. The 117 foot long yacht holds 149 people comfortably. And, did we mention OPEN BAR? This is one of the few reasonably priced open bar options that we've run across.
