bride getting dressed

Times are tough for many people, so it comes as no surprise that many are looking for budget wedding venues.  Do a Google search of wedding venues, and you will also find searches for “budget wedding venues,” “cheap wedding venues,” and “inexpensive wedding venues.”

Obviously, people are looking to save money, and very few have the funds to hold a lavish wedding like we once saw decades ago.  Today it is all about shoestring budgets and cutting corners.

And that’s where we come in, we being Tarrant Events Center, serving the Greater Fort Worth area.  Our venue rental comes in under most peoples’ budget, and that means happy brides and grooms all around Tarrant County, Texas.   If you are in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, give us a call and let’s talk about saving money.  And if you do not live in the Fort Worth area, read this article and apply it to your area.

How can we offer an affordable wedding venue?

The problem with many wedding venues is that they offer much more than just the venue.  A whole list of amenities is included in a wedding package for most wedding venues, and that drives up the cost.  We don’t do that at Tarrant Events Center.  We offer the venue and the basics for any event i.e. tables, chairs, audio equipment, video equipment, and ample parking. All inclusive pricing. This simple approach means great savings to you.

But what about those amenities?

That’s where you come into the picture!  Instead of hiring a wedding professional, you save money by negotiating with vendors for food, entertainment, and decorations.  You plan the wedding you want at the price you can afford, and you don’t mortgage the future in doing so.  At Tarrant Events Center, you pay a flat fee, a reasonable fee, for our event space rental.  After that you control the expenditures.

It’s just that simple!

The keys to getting what you want

We cannot say this enough times: plan early!  You should begin arranging for a wedding at least a year in advance. That way you get the venue you want on the day you want it.  If you wait too long, you will be stuck with whichever venue is still available, and that may not lead to a “dream wedding.”

Also, stick to your budget!  Do not allow your dreams to break your own personal piggy bank.  It is entirely possible to have a memorable celebration and not go broke doing it, but you must begin the process early.

And, finally, negotiate!  Far too many people ignore this vital skill.  Work with vendors. Work with musicians.  Work with wedding planners.  Find a way to get the most bang for your buck, and the only way to do that is to work for your best interests.  You are your own agent, and you must find the best deal out there at the best price.

Questions?  Give us a call at Tarrant Events Center.  Even if you don’t live in Fort Worth, we can probably give you some words of advice and steer you in the right direction.  We really would love to help you achieve your dreams.  Everyone deserves that with their wedding day.
