Ever heard of a Pop Up wedding in Houston?

Until recently, I wasn’t exactly sure what it was, even though the term is becoming more and more used. A really great resource for executing a Pop Up Wedding in Houston is this website. On there, you are able to select the experience you desire. Whether that is a pop up wedding, micro wedding, or elopement, the options are all presented for you! If you’re wanting more info on micro weddings or elopements, let’s chat!

Let me break it down for you-here is what a pop up wedding typically includes;

  • Typically last around 90 minutes, to allow for multiple weddings to happen that day.
  • Specific venue already chosen for you
  • predetermined date
  • Custom Music
  • Cakes
  • Small guest count (usually 2-25ish)
  • Venue set up and breakdown
  • Ceremony chairs, backdrop
  • Planner/Day of Coordinator of sorts
  • Bouquet & Boutonniere

Pros & Cons for choosing a Pop Up Wedding in Houston

So, you’re tossing the idea around, but still on the fence if a pop up wedding is right for you? No worries, let’s sort it out. Making a clear list always helps me to see a little more clearly, and hopefully this will help you as well;


  • efficient for planning
  • very cost efficient
  • all the planning is DONE for you!
  • You literally choose your dress, and show up. No fuss, no muss
  • Save on money from the ceremony and put that towards a fancy honeymoon
  • Small amount of people, so it’s intimate, and you feel like you get to spend time with each person there, who are all so meaningful to you.
  • Can still be personalized for each couple.


  • fixed date, makes it less options when choosing a date
  • usually on a weekday, to cut on cost for wedding planners and venues (to be honest, this may be a Pro for some, though!)
  • back to back events don’t allow for overage on time

Solarium Studio’s Pop Up wedding in Houston option

This Pop Up Wedding venue in Houston is utterly gorgeous! The modern and minimalistic decor is so neutral that it goes with everything, while at the same time, not being bland and boring. They really hit the mark for creating a universal space for many different types of events. There is an outdoor space in addition to the building itself, that lets light filter in through the trees and it’s just magical to see. I really love the setup that they offer for pop up weddings in Houston because it’s simple, not overly done, but yet is personal.
