If you'd like to meet the people behind the venues, many of them will be on hand at the Bridal Extravaganza Show this week at the George R. Brown Convention Center.
Crystal Ballroom at the Rice
The Crystal Ballroom is a 1913 historic ballroom located in the heart of downtown Houston's Rice Hotel. This is where some of Houston's largest weddings are held. The space can accommodate up to 800 guests for receptions and 350 for seated dining. The hotel also has a smaller event space called the Empire Room for weddings with around 100 guests.

House Plantation in Hockley is set in 18 acres, complete with lakes and views, and the venue is centered around a lovingly restored 1890s Victorian mansion.
