A diverse region, yet unapologetically emblematic of Texas, Houston is one of the best places to celebrate your upcoming nuptials. The bridal shower is where the festivities kick off and you need a top-notch location that can fulfill all your needs.

We've narrowed down the list to 12 of the top locations in The Bayou City that range from rustic to oppulent, and everything in between. And if you're still in need of even more great recommendations for venues, take a look at The Knot Marketplace.
