The Crystal Ballroom has downtown elegance
June is the month for weddings, because if there's one situation you want to find yourself in, it's at an outdoor wedding in a Houston summer.

With the closing of longtime wedding fave Vargo's, Houston has lost a go-to wedding destination. But there are plenty of other places that would make a good setting for exchanging oaths, whether they allow ceremonies on the property or not.

So here are the 10 best places to get married in Houston.

10. The Crystal Ballroom
Not only do you get downtown elegance, you get to harken back to the days when the Rice Hotel was the epicenter of all things social in Houston. Plus, if things get boring, you can always sneak across the street to Molly's Pub.

9. The hill at the Miller Outdoor Theatre
In case you don't feel you're the center of attention enough, get married at the top of Houston's only hill and have the adoring audience look up at you. If you're really starved for attention, sneak onto the stage and find the spotlight switch.

Howard Hughes can be a (very clean) member of the wedding

8. Glenwood Cemetery
(Cue Billy Idol) It's a nice place for a...goth wedding. Not to mention you could have it at Howard Hughes' grave, as long as you make sure everyone brings their own urine jars.

7. The Gulf Building
Sure, it's a bank lobby, but it's a great bank lobby. Art Deco, murals and metalwork give the place a visceral historic feel of behatted men taking advantage of the Roaring Twenties. Just cover up the teller positions with some flowers and you're good to go.

6. Studewood Park
This Woodland Heights park features one of the best skyline views of downtown. Show off your Houston Pride. Just hope White Oak bayou isn't especially pungent on your big day.

We got married at the Garten Verein in Galveston, it was gorgeous. Cost has gone up, but it's still pretty inexpensive if you marry M-F.

The Japanese Garden in Hermann Park. Beautiful, and free.

I like the idea of art galleries.  There are a bunch of great spaces on Colquitt.  I especially like Peveto at 2627 Colquitt for engagement parties as well as weddings.  www.peveto.org

So is this where all the godless types get married.  Might as well get married scuba diving in the ship channel.
