What we are about to tell you about cheap wedding venues will fly in the face of established industry wisdom, but so be it. We believe in passing on the truth about the venue rental industry, and that is what we will do in this article.
We are Tarrant Events Center, offering the very best in wedding venues, in the Fort Worth area, at a fair and reasonable price. Call us at 817-996-3636 for more information about our outstanding Fort Worth wedding venue and event center.
There are two kinds of cheap wedding venues
The term “cheap wedding venues” can have two connotations: it can mean “cheap” as in shabby and somewhat unimpressive, or it can mean cheap as in not costing very much but acceptable by most standards.
If you do not care what the wedding venue looks like, if its appearance is not important to you, then finding cheap will not be difficult.
If, however, cost AND appearance are important to you, then your search will be a bit more difficult.
The going rate for a wedding venue can range from approximately $500 per rental period to $10,000 or more. If you live in a fairly large city, you will have multiple options to choose from. Perhaps the $500 option has a decent appearance. Perhaps your budget will not allow you to look at anything more expensive. If that is the case, you most definitely have those available to you in most cities.
There are more costs in wedding venues than simply the rental fee
If, however, you do not want shabby but, in fact, want something which appears to be lovely and professional, you will pay for it, and you can count on a rental fee somewhere in the $2000-$5000 range. Our own Tarrant Events Center rents for $2500-$3000, depending upon the rental day, and we are “middle of the road” with regards to rental cost.
However, and this is where we deliver some very good news to you, the cost of a wedding does not stop at the cost of renting a wedding venue. You must also consider the cost of food for the reception, the cost of decorations, and the cost of entertainment. The main cost of any wedding is usually much more than most people initially guess/predict, and it is in these secondary costs where money can be saved.
How industrious are you, and how tight is that budget of yours?
DIY stands for “do it yourself,” and if you are willing to do it yourself, to decorate yourself, to find entertainment yourself, and to cook the food yourself, you will cut the costs of your wedding considerably, moving you ever closer to the “cheap wedding venues” you originally sought.
If you truly want great value in a wedding venue, our recommendation is to find one at the low end of the price spectrum, say somewhere in the $500-$3000 range, and then cover the secondary costs yourself adoption a DIY attitude. In that way, cheap wedding venues really do offer great value at a low price.
