Wedding Bling

The Best Ring Stores, Bridal Shops and Showcase Reception Venues In Houston

BY // 02.11.16

The question has been popped — but there are bigger questions, and you need to find the right sources for answers. Your go-to list for reception venues, bridal emporiums, jewelers, floral designers, event planners and more is all in one place: the PaperCity Blue Book, our online guide to all things bridal.

Similar to a human fingerprint, no two weddings are identical. Ceremonies range from intimate destination weddings to church nuptials to blowout country club bashes, but despite these differences, a bride’s big day always includes three essentials  — the dress, the ring, and the venue.

In Part I of PaperCity‘s Blue Book, we explore the diverse selection of bridal salons, fine jewelers and ceremony venues Houston has to offer.
