small wedding venues

Affordable wedding venues in Tarrant County for whom? That’s the question you should be asking yourself as you look for inexpensive wedding venues.  Are the affordable for Bill Gates or Jeff Bezos, or are they affordable for the average person off the street, a hard-working guy, or gal, with a limited budget?

It’s easy to advertise for cheap wedding venues, but rarely do you find wedding ceremony venues affordable for a middle-class citizen.

Until now!  Tarrant Events Center at 5249 Denton Highway, Fort Worth, is such a place, affordable to the general populace and not just the rich ones with unlimited budgets. Call us and arrange for a tour of our wedding venue today!

The costs of a wedding

Wedding ceremonies have three costs:

  • The cost of the wedding venue
  • The cost of incidentals/amenities
  • The cost of the wedding reception

Let’s look at each of these in a little detail so you know what to expect as you begin your search for a wedding venue which matches your budget.

The cost of the wedding venue

Tarrant Events Center rentals range from $850 to $2500, depending upon whether it is a half-day or full-day rental, and which day of the week you are renting for. This is the standard method of pricing, and our prices are at the low end of the pricing spectrum for venues.  The Elon Musks of the world can pay $10,000 and up for a venue, and there are certainly those types of venues in Fort Worth, Haltom City, and Irving, but that’s not Tarrant Events Center. We offer everything you need in a venue at a price you can afford.

The only suggestion, and this is true when renting any event venue, make sure you reserve that venue well in advance of the event date. We recommend a full year in advance.

The cost of incidentals/amenities

Here we are talking about food, drinks, entertainment, decorations, set-up and take-down crew, and any other incidentals costs associated with the event.  Some venues will do these things for you but beware: they charge a premium cost to do them.  In other words, you will pay for the entertainment they arrange for you, plus you will pay for them arranging it for you.

We don’t do that at Tarrant Events Center. We believe you are fully capable of arranging for food, entertainment, and decorations, and we KNOW you can do it for a much-lower cost. We can recommend caterers or entertainment for you, people we have worked with in the past, but the decision and the cost-negotiations are up to you.

The cost of the wedding reception

And, finally, we have the cost of the wedding reception venue, again a large drain on your budget.  Our suggestion: rent a venue which can double as a wedding venue AND a reception venue . . . a venue like Tarrant Events Center.  Why pay for two venues when one is suitable?  We have the room at Tarrant Events Center to handle both events and still keep within your rapidly-shrinking budget.

And that’s it!  Call us if what we offer sounds good to you.  Unless your name is Jeff Bezos, we are betting our venue offering is exactly what you need and what you can afford.
