What sets your wedding venue apart? Five unique features to consider when booking a wedding venue

One of the most important steps of wedding planning is finding the right venue. With so many options in Houston, picking the best one for your love story can be daunting. Plus, it is an important decision – so don’t rush it! Take your time and explore your options to find the best fit for you. To help you choose the perfect unique Houston wedding venue, we have compiled a list of features that you should look for when booking your venue.

Both Indoor and Outdoor Spaces

Choose a venue that offers both indoor and outdoor spaces! This way, you can hold different portions of the wedding in different spaces. For example, at Addison Woods you can exchange vows outside under the historic oak trees, followed by a reception inside the reception barn. In the case of bad weather, you can always utilize our chapel to host your ceremony as plan B. Some of the best Houston wedding venues provide both indoor and outdoor options. As a top Houston wedding venue, Addison Woods allows you to choose from multiple different spaces to host your special day!

Onsite Getting Ready Areas

If you want to feel at ease on your wedding day, then we recommend you choose a venue that offers both a bridal and groom's suite onsite. Travel delays can happen for several reasons – so if you want to be on time for your big day, we highly recommend finding a venue that has areas for you both to relax and get ready in throughout the day. Onsite suites also provide the benefit of having your photographer capture those dreamy getting ready photos.


Think carefully when it comes to choosing your location. You should first think about how far you are willing to travel between your ceremony and reception – or if you are willing to travel at all. For example, having your reception over 60 minutes away from the ceremony can be hectic for both you and your guests. Additionally, you want your venue to be close to nearby attractions and accomodations. As one of the best Texas wedding venues, we are centrally located. We are just 25 minutes north of Houston and 15 minutes from the IAH airport. To enjoy as much time as possible with your loved ones, be sure to choose a venue that can be easily accessed.

Preferred Vendors List and All-Inclusive Weddings Available

Wedding venues that offer all-inclusive options and preferred vendors lists are the best resources for setting up the details of your big day. Check with your venue for their specific vendors list, as they may work exclusively with trusted partners. Having a photographer or caterer that is familiar with the venue will ensure everything runs smoothly on your wedding day. What makes Addison Woods unique is that we offer all-inclusive packages that are designed for our couples. With our build-your-own all-inclusive packages, we allow our couples to create their own package that is customized to their individual needs.
