I'm getting married in Oct 2013 on the beach in Galveston. I am trying to find someone to help plan the wedding that will have different packages to chose from. I've emailed/called several places and no one is getting back with me. Does anyone have any suggestions for a small wedding (about 30 people)? We would like to find something that offers the ceremony and reception as a package deal. We do not want to go broke on our wedding either.

Hi! I recommend Mary Bass of It's Your Day to plan your wedding. Her rates are a FRACTION of any other planner in the area, and she lives on the island. I absolutely love her. Plus she has a friend that does wedding cakes (Julie Moncrief)---not only was the cake the best cake we've ever tried (way better than any of the ones that show up at the Houston Bridal Expo) but again, it was a fraction of the cost.

Get in touch with Mary and she'll be able to help you with the venue. Good luck!!!

Kristen,

I'm not sure if they are available but check out the Ellisa. I think the put the boat up for the winter but you have the deck and museum. But they were doing construction on the deck but worth a try. That or the Railroad museum.

It took a couple days and a couple phone calls honestly. She's been having phone and internet issues so you might call again.
