We think cheap wedding venues get a bad rap, and it’s because of that word “cheap.”  How about thinking in terms of affordable wedding venues, or inexpensive wedding venues?  Doesn’t that sound much better than “cheap wedding venues?”

Of course it does!

Which leads us to the obvious question:  What is affordable for you?

At Tarrant Events Center, we understand.  Many of us have our own children; almost all of us have been married.  One way or another, we have all faced the expense of paying for a wedding. The sticker shock was enough to make many of us white-haired!

We understand, and we have some tips to consider if you want a choice of wedding venues which fit into your budget.

Follow these steps:

  • Start early
  • Set a budget and stick to it
  • Get creative

Let’s look at each of these suggestions.

Start early looking for a venue rental

Venue rentals fill up quickly in a calendar year if they are a quality event space rental.  The sooner you set a date for the wedding, the better, and we would recommend a year in advance. If you want the wedding to be special, and we know you do, at least a one-year preparation period is highly suggested.  Book early and the sea of options increase for you.

Set a budget for an event hall rental

You want the wedding to be special, but you don’t want to go into serious debt for it.  Set a reasonable budget.  Be realistic but also be frugal.  Starting your search early means you increase the odds of you finding something in your budget, and finding something in your budget means a life without serious debt.

Stick to it! Do not be tempted to go over budget because someone says they have something you absolutely must have for the wedding.  You always have options.

Get creative with your wedding planning

At Tarrant Events Center, we believe in your creativity.  We offer an event space and the basics. We believe you are infinitely more creative than we are, and we believe, with a little negotiating, you can save tons of money by planning the wedding yourself.  You don’t need us muddying the waters for you.  Gather up your family and friends, combine your imaginations, and we believe wonders will happen.

We offer the following at Tarrant Events Center:

  • Tables
  • Chairs
  • Linens
  • Audio-visual equipment
  • WiFi
  • Ample parking
  • A quality event space
  • An extremely reasonable and competitive price

We leave it to you to transform that space into a memorable wedding.  We have absolute faith in your ability to negotiate with vendors and caterers and decorators to find the best price possible. We can give you recommendations but the final word is this: you know better what you need in order for your dream to become a reality.

Final thoughts about cheap wedding venues

Get the word “cheap” out of your vocabulary.  From this moment forward it does not exist.  Your plan can be had at an affordable cost if you follow our suggestions. This is what we do for a living at Tarrant Events Center, so follow our expertise and go out and create a lasting memory.
