small reception venues

The title of this article should have your attention, because who doesn’t want to save money when renting a wedding venue? Have you priced them lately?  If you are like many people, you have had nightmares thinking about paying for that upcoming wedding and reception.

Never fear! Shoo those nightmares away. In this article, we are going to give you a few tips about saving money for that upcoming wedding, and then at the end we will toot our own horn a bit. We are Tarrant Events Center, serving the Greater Fort Worth area. Call us at 817-996-3636 for more information about our quality, affordable wedding venues.

Now, though, let’s talk about saving you money.

Combine the wedding and reception in one venue

Some wedding venues are simply that, a wedding venue. They are an event hall rental, quite adequate for a wedding, but not at all adequate for a reception. Thus, the clients much rent a wedding hall and then rent a reception hall, two rentals, two outlays of cash, and that is pricey indeed.

At Tarrant Events Center, we have a solution.  We have our traditional event space rental for the wedding, but we also have over one-acre of landscaped grounds, meaning you can set up for the wedding, set up for the reception, and hold both events in one location.  Or switch it around, the acreage for outdoor wedding venues, and the inside for the reception.

Either way you look at it, you are saving the rental of one location, and that is oftentimes savings of a couple-thousand dollars.  And who can’t smile at savings of that much money?

Negotiate with vendors to save money

Who will be providing food for your event? Who will be providing music? Who will be decorating? Who will be setting up and taking down, and who will be serving?  There are so many decisions to make when planning a wedding and reception.  One solution is to rent a wedding hall from a place which contracts with vendors to provide food, drinks, music, and decoration.  It is very convenient, but it is also pricey to do this. The event room rental management team acts as middle men for you, and they charge a fee for that service.

How to save money?  Eliminate the middle man and negotiate with the food vendors, the entertainers, the servers, all of the services you need for an outstanding event.  You can oftentimes save, again, thousands of dollars by negotiating on your own.

At Tarrant Events Center, we insist upon this approach. We rent the venue, period, end of story. We turn all the details over to you to save money wherever you can.

Insist upon all-inclusive pricing

What is all-inclusive pricing? It means no hidden fees and no financial surprises after you have signed the rental agreement. We offer all-inclusive pricing at Tarrant Events Center, and in our opinion, only reputable event centers offer it.  You are already stressed enough over this upcoming event.  Your budget is already stretched to its limits. What you don’t need are hidden fees.
