Renting party venues can be expensive. No matter if you are looking at birthday party venues or Christmas party venues or company party venues, the cost adds up and your budget can’t keep up with the costs. It is not at all unusual for party venues to end up costing you thousands of dollars, and for many of you, that final cost figure is prohibitive at best and a nightmare scenario at worst.
We are going to offer you, in this article, five tips for saving money when renting party venues, we being Tarrant Events Center in Fort Worth. Call us at 817-996-3636 if you are in the Fort Worth area looking for one of the best party room rentals for a reasonable cost.
Now, let’s look at the five ways to save money when renting party venues.
Keep it simple
Yes, eloquent is lovely, but simple is less expensive. Remember that as you go about your party planning. You do not need the most expensive glassware. You do not need the most expensive linens or the most expensive entertainment or the most expensive decorations. Remember the purpose of the party in the first place, which is to have a great time. When friends and/or family get together for a party, it makes no difference whether they are drinking out of five-dollar glasses or fifty dollar crystal. They will still have fun!
Rent party venues for half-day if possible
Some party hall rentals rent half-days and full-days. You can save considerable money if you find a half-day rental in your city, provided you can have your party without feeling rushed in that half-day window of time.
Do not sign rental packages for party venues
Avoid rental packages like the plague. What is a rental package? You rent the party room rental but you also must use the caterer assigned to the rental, or you must also use the decorator or only preferred musicians tied to that party rental location. You can easily save considerable money by renting a party venue and then separately dealing with vendors for the rest, which brings us to the next money-saving suggestion.
Negotiate with vendors or DIY
You do not need an expensive caterer for your party, nor do you need top-of-the-line entertainers or professional decorators. With a little initiative you can do all of the work yourself, or piecemeal the work to several co-workers or family members. Yes, it would be lovely to hire a professional chef for your party, but that professional chef will cost you quite a bit of money, whereas Aunt Jane works for free.
Have the party on a less-expensive day of the week
Did you know that party venues cost more money on weekends? It’s true! Weekends are peak rental times. Weekdays are less-expensive. Is there any reason why your party can’t be held on a Wednesday instead of a Saturday? If not, you can save hundreds of dollars by scheduling for that Wednesday.
