Houston Wedding Venues: Discover The Sans Souci Ballroom

Filed in: Venues

Hey Boss, planning an event is hard work! And the single most difficult decision you’ll have to make is finding out WHERE to host your wedding or corporate event. Today we’re in North Houston for the next stop on the SwaLaRue Events Venue Tour: The Sans Souci Ballroom.

For today’s Houston Wedding and Event Venue we’re highlighting the Sans Souci Ballroom. And if you describe your dream wedding as something out of a fairytale…keep reading!

This is an ideal venue for both weddings and corporate events looking for an event space that feels luxurious, exclusive, preferred, and breathtaking

When I visited this place I think it took about 10min to pick my jaw up…it completely knocked my socks off. Everything from the exclusive his and hers suites, complete with seating are perfect for brunch and hair and makup to the option for outdoors garden ceremony and horse and carriage entrance to the staging, lighting and sound fit for a large gala…this place has thought of everything.

Here are some items to highlight when planning for your event:

Linen and centerpiece upgrades on-site?X 
Ceremony Areax 
Cocktail Spacex 
Reception Spacex 
Host multiple events at same time x
Outside catering?x 

Maximum Occupancy : 1000

Things to note:

Starting Rental Fee: $21,000

You have the option to set up as an outdoors ceremony with a tent or open air at the Sans Souci Ballroom.

There is plenty of greenery for backdrop as well as dancing fountains (think The Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas!

How much time does this venue allow for set up?

This is important to consider when you think about your decor. If you want to explore a really elaborate and highly customed event design that requires structures or wrapping a dance floor or draping off the entire room, consider how much time you will need. Is it a complicated install that requires a lot of moving parts or several days to complete? Be sure to consider this when you are ready to start planning your décor.

What I love about this venue:

They do not book more than one event at one time AND they allow outside catering. If you want a really unique menu for your event, determining if the venue will allow you to choose your own caterer is a huge benefit.

And as for the last guest out the latest possible is 4AM. So if you know your party will run a little later, it’s nice to know that they allow accommodations for an extended event time. And let’s say there isn’t an event planned the day after yours….and you needed to have your vendors pick up the next day- this could also be negotiated, the Sans Souci Ballroom is very flexible to ensure you have the event you’ve been dreaming of.

This place is absolutely breathtaking. If you are looking for an elegant or upscale concept for your event, this one should be up for consideration!

Finding the best Houston Wedding Venue in Houston is a very important decision in your event planning process. Whether you’re planning a Houston Corporate Event or a Wedding, first determine your guest count and overall budget before touring any spaces. This will help you narrow down  your list of options to the most feasible to accommodate your guest list and make sure you have room in the budget for all other categories you have to account for.

They are currently offering in-person tours and promotions so be sure to stop by to check out this brand new gem and tell them SwaLaRue Events sent you!
