Dreams Do Come True

At the American Bank Center, every season is wedding season.

Wedding season in South Texas is always in bloom, and we recently got a chance to sit down with Cynthia Woods, sales account executive for American Bank Center, to talk about all things weddings and what brides and grooms can expect when they book their best day ever at the American Bank Center.

What is the biggest misconception to booking here?
The biggest misconception is, “It’s the American Bank Center. It will be too expensive for a wedding.” We are indeed very affordable. Whether you’re a DIY bride or want a venue with everything included, we have just the package for you that won’t put a dent in your checkbook. Our SAVOR… The Memories EXCLUSIVE Package offers everything from your venue, catering, decorations – even your wedding cake! At the SMG-managed American Bank Center, it doesn’t take a fortune to have the wedding of your dreams.

If you had to pick the perfect time of the season to get married, what would you choose?
The beauty of booking your wedding here is that we feature the most breathtaking scenery both inside and outside of the American Bank Center. Every season is wedding season! Our venue can accommodate a gorgeous ceremony in or outside with the perfect celebration right after. And how can you not love a wedding photo that overlooks our beautiful bay?

Each couple is different. How does the American Bank Center make sure that every couple’s dreams of their special day are met?
Our SAVOR… The Memories EXCLUSIVE Package not only offers our team of experts, but also the city’s leading industry experts. Razzle Dazzle Event Decorating, who has been a staple in the wedding industry for almost 20 years, dedicate their excellence to making our couples’ special day, as well as the brilliant ladies at Let Them Eat Cake Cakery. Our teams strive to make each couple’s special day a dream come true.

What are some elements that American Bank Center offers that give brides the best stress-free experience?
We have done our best to make the SMG-managed American Bank Center a one-stop shop for couples. We offer a complimentary tasting with our chief executive chef, Michael Stephans, to assist with one of the most difficult decisions couples are faced with at our venue: the food! Chef Stephans offers a delectable menu from which couples choose.

Razzle Dazzle Event Decorating meets one-on-one with the couples to get to know their color palettes and choice of themes. Let Them Eat Cake Cakery takes it another step forward with a tasting featuring their master baker! These helpful elements can make the bride and groom both breathe with relief. Your special day does not need to be full of any worry. Let us put you at ease.
