small wedding venues

Do affordable wedding venues even exist? Is it possible to even find inexpensive wedding venues in any city? And what does “affordable” even mean?  How is it possible to save money when renting attractive wedding venues?

We are going to answer those questions in this article.

We are Tarrant Events Center, serving the wonderful people of Fort Worth, Texas, with our multi-purpose event center. Call us at 817-996-3636 for information about our event room rental.

Now, let’s talk about finding affordable wedding venues where you live.

What does “affordable wedding venues” mean?

This is a tricky question, is it not? “Affordable” for Elon Musk might be $50,000 for an eight-hour wedding venue rental, while “affordable” for you might be $1,000.

And that’s just the rental fee we are talking about. Add to that the cost of decorations, the cost of food, the cost of entertainment at the reception, and suddenly that “cheap wedding ceremony venues” idea seems like a pipe dream at best, and a nightmare at worst.

And a wedding should never be a nightmare, or so we believe.

So, how do you find affordable wedding venues where you live?

What are you looking for in wedding ceremony venues?

It begins with your vision of the ideal wedding ceremony, and then finding wedding ceremony venues which fit that vision and still remain inside your budget.  It sounds easy typed out like that; it’s not so easy in reality.

Wedding venues will range from $500 per rental period to the aforementioned $50,000 or even more.  Chance are, no matter where you live, there is a wedding venue which fits into your rental budget.  No matter how small your town is, there will surely be a restaurant or a VFW which will give you a good price on their event space rental so yes, affordable wedding venues do exist in your city. Shop around, be willing to be a bit flexible in that vision of yours, and we are confident you will find one.

The trick, then, is to figure out how to pay for all of the incidentals in addition to the venue rental, incidentals like food, like decorations, and like entertainment.

How to achieve your dream without going into major debt

Our suggestion, if money is an important consideration, is to take care of all those incidentals yourself.  You, your friends, and your relatives, should take care of food preparation, of set-up and take-down, of decorations, and of entertainment. The more of those things that you can do yourself, the more money you are going to save.  Why pay a caterer or food truck $750 for food when your Aunt Martha makes a mean lasagna?  Why pay a club band $500 when your cousin is in a band?

Start your wedding planning early. The earlier you begin that planning, the more time you will have to find creative solutions to the “money crunch” dilemma most people face.
