July 19, 2012

Do you love the Houston Museum of Natural Science? Well, why don’t you just get married in it?

HMNS has played host to an array of gorgeous and decidedly different weddings, whether among the jewels of our Cullen Hall of Gems and Minerals, surrounded by butterflies in our Cockrell Butterfly Center, or under the stars of our Burke Baker Planetarium.

Weddings at HMNSOur paleontology hall has already been the site of stunning nuptials.

If you’re planning a wedding or involved in someone else’s planning, join us at the The Bridal Extravaganza Show this weekend at the George R. Brown Convention Center to learn more about HMNS’ spectacular spaces and meet our lovely event staff, who are here to help every step of the way.

My fiance loves me this much!Weddings at HMNS feature access to our totally unique permanent venues and an on-call, in-house wedding manager.

Our full-service caterers can handle any detail, from valet and decor to securing entertainment. And best of all, our exhibit halls serve as a stunning natural backdrop to any affair and ensure an experience your guests won’t soon forget.

Whether you’re planning an intimate ceremony or a major bash, HMNS can accommodate you. We are able to host up to 2,000 guests for a cocktail reception or dial it down to create something cozy.

Fair warning: the T. rex is a crier.

And by the way, Bridal Extravaganza Show attendees that visit the HMNS table will receive a collection of these darling bridal postcards — and other goodies, too.

The bridal party is ready.
