If you are like most people, you will call local restaurants when you need to see rehearsal dinner venues near you. It’s the first thing people think of. Restaurants are also the most expensive venue people could think of.
We are Tarrant Events Center, serving the Greater Fort Worth area, and we have the information you need to save money on a rehearsal dinner venue and still hold a high-quality rehearsal dinner people will talk about for years afterwards.

Steps in finding a rehearsal dinner venue
Let’s break it down for you. To save money and retain quality, look at the following suggestions:
- Avoid the obvious
- Combine and save
- Make it a DIY rehearsal dinner
Let’s break it down even more and look at each of those.
Avoid the obvious
Where do most people go for a rehearsal dinner? A local fancy restaurant! Big mistake! You pay through the pocket book by using local restaurants. They can hardly wait for that call asking to host a rehearsal dinner. Their prices are jacked up for such events, and you’ll pay extra because they are providing the food.
Avoid restaurants for the rehearsal dinner. That’s your first lesson. Look for an event hall rental and save money.
Combine and save
Most weddings have a reception to follow, right? We suggest you rent the same place for both your reception and your rehearsal dinner. In fact, if possible, use the same small halls for rent for the wedding, for the reception, and for the rehearsal dinner. Trust us, the company renting the hall will bend over backwards to arrange for a great price now that they are renting for three events rather than just one.
Don’t get hung up on the type of event being held. A good social event venues can handle any type of event with ease. We can at Tarrant Events Center, and others in your city can also do it.
Make it a DIY dinner
Here is where you really save on any event: do it yourself! Rent an all-purpose event hall like Tarrant Events Center, and then turn that hall into the type of event you are hosting. Pull together friends and family and make it a DIY reception, a DIY rehearsal dinner, and even a DIY wedding ceremony. And if you don’t feel competent to do a DIY, you can at least contract out to caterers, food trucks, DJ’s, and decorators to find the best price possible for their services. Trust us, this is the way to go to save money when hosting one of these events.
