Even though it was recently named one of the best places to live in the USA, it’s also increasing in popularity as a destination wedding location (and it’s easy to see why). There is so much to see and do which helps to provide a variety of activities that are easy to plan for out of town wedding guests.

Who said that a destination wedding needs to be beachside in the Caribbean? Have your wedding guests join you at the ‘Live Music Capital of the World!’

While the prices for weddings vary based on specific location or the size of your guest list, the average wedding in Texas costs $24,520 or $180 per guest (according to ValuePenguin). Creative services, like photo and video, are often a significant line item in wedding planning expenses.
