Winter wedding venues can be beautiful; winter wedding venues can be a headache. We are going to talk about this dichotomy and give you some options to consider. We are Tarrant Events Center, serving the Greater Fort Worth area with our all-purpose event center. Call us at 817-996-3636 for more information and to arrange for a tour of our event venue.
The problems associated with winter wedding venues.
Any discussion about problems with winter wedding venues must begin with a discussion about winter weather. Rainstorms, snowstorms, sleet, ice, wind, horrible driving conditions, power outages, does any of this sound familiar? And, because you are making a reservation months in advance for a particular date, you really are at the mercy of the weather gods.
Most likely you are guarding against the weather problems by reserving an indoor wedding venues, which is all well and good, but that does not take into account the driving problems associated with weather, nor does it protect you against power outages.
The advantages of winter wedding venues.
Yes, there are advantages to renting wedding venues in the winter, the main advantage being that it is much easier to secure a specific date in the winter, which is off-season for most event venue rentals. And, because it is off-season, it is much easier to secure the services of a decorator, a food service for the reception, and any entertainment you may want for the reception.
In addition, because we are talking the slow time of the year for event center rentals, you may find a favorable deduction in cost during the slow months. This is not a guarantee; it certainly is not standard practice in the event rental industry, but it does happen and it is worth asking about.
Your options are many.
Now that we’ve taken a look at advantages and disadvantages, let’s talk about your options.
They are many. They may not include the most popular outdoor wedding venues, because of the weather threat, but you still do have quite a few to choose from depending, of course, on where you live.
Churches, of course. Popular vacation locations will oftentimes rent out during the off-season for events like weddings. Or get really creative, be married onboard a ship, or a mountain lodge, or a seaside resort.
We obviously cannot speak about specific areas, but we do know there are unique and special locations available no matter where you live. Put on your thinking caps and start dreaming.
A final word about Tarrant Events Center.
A word about Tarrant Events Center and how we approach this winter issue. In addition to our indoor venue, we also have over an acre of landscaped grounds at our location, meaning you get the best of both worlds. If the weather cooperates, you can have room to stretch your legs after the ceremony. You might even choose to have the wedding indoors and the reception outdoors, saving you money on the rental, one place rather than two. We are centrally located near major roads, meaning inclement weather and poor road conditions do not affect our clients as much. And we take reservations a full year in advance, making it that much easier for you to secure the date which is so important to your wedding.
