Events center for rent in the Fort Worth area. Wedding venue, corporate events and party space.


Affordable wedding venues in Keller is, or course, in the eyes of the beholder. The CEO of a Fortune 500 company will think “affordable” is quite different than a mechanic in some car body shop, looking for a wedding venue for his daughter.

What makes a wedding venue affordable? Said another way, what makes a wedding venue expensive?  We will look at those questions a bit in this article. We are Tarrant Events Center, located at 5230 Denton Highway, Fort Worth, and we have the answers to questions like those and many more you might have. Call us for all the information you need to choose wisely from among the inexpensive wedding venues in Tarrant County.

It begins with your budget

You most likely have a budget.  Our advice: stick with it and don’t go beyond. Wedding venues range in price from $500 per rental to over $10,000 per rental, so trust us when we tell you there is something available, for your budget, if you start looking far enough in advance. We suggest you begin your search a full year in advance of the wedding and, by the way, rental fees at Tarrant Events Center range from $850 to $2500 per rental, depending upon half-day or full-day rental and the day of the week you want.  In the venue rental business, weekends always cost more than weekdays.

So, that covers the base cost of the rental, but there are other costs for you to consider.

Costs other than just the event hall rental

Let’s take a quick look at these other costs of an event hall rental you need to be aware of:

  • Entertainment
  • Food
  • Drinks
  • Set-up and take-down
  • Decorations
  • And, finally, a reception if you are having one

It gets a bit tricky when calculating these costs. Some event room rentals include some of these items in their rental contract, thus increasing the cost of your wedding.  They will find you a decorator and then charge you a fee to find that decorator.  Some wedding venues contract out for any food you might plan on having.

Keep in mind, too, that some wedding venues do not have the facilities for a reception, so you’ll have to rent a separate venue for the reception.  Or, if they do have the facility for both the wedding and reception, they will charge you for two rentals, even though both events are being held in the same building.

A word about Tarrant Events Center

First of all, we offer all-inclusive pricing. There are no hidden fees when you deal with us.

Secondly, we are what is known as a turnkey venue among Tarrant County wedding venues. We offer include basics like chairs, tables, microphones, movable stage, audio and video equipment, full kitchen, two VIP rooms, but we do not offer catering, decorating, bartending, or entertainment. We simply rent the venue and leave those other services for you to attend to.  Yes, that means a bit more work for you, but it also means you can negotiate with vendors to find the absolute best price, a price which will fit into your budget and not put you in debt.

And did we mention we have room for both the wedding and the reception at our facility, and we have indoor and outdoor space if you should want outdoor wedding venues?
