Let’s get right to it, the #1 tip about wedding venues
Without further ado, here is the #1 tip, which will save you a multitude of headaches: reserve the wedding venue as early as possible.
Most reputable event centers, like our Tarrant Events Center, take reservations a full year in advance, and that is important on a number of levels and for a number of reasons, which we will list below. First, though, we should mention a couple other steps to take before you finally settle on your choice.
Making a list and checking it twice
Keeping in mind the #1 tip, this whole process should start thirteen, fourteen, or fifteen months in advance of the actual date of the nuptials. During those early months, you will want to make a list of “necessities” you must have from an event room rental, the game-changers, the deal-breakers, things you absolutely consider to be of utmost importance. These, of course, will change from person to person.
Be stubborn and be fanciful when making this list. This is a once-in-a-lifetime event, and you deserve to have it match your dream event. There are a lot of affordable wedding venues available, and the hope is that at least one of them can come close to matching your dream.
Once you have that list, begin your search. It won’t take you long to narrow down your list of choices. There are very few wedding venues which offer design flexibility like our Tarrant Events Center, and design flexibility, and an understanding staff, are what you need while conducting this search.
Once you have found the perfect match, make your reservation immediately, and again, we are talking a full year in advance. Why?
Saving money with early reservations
Early reservations lock you in to the price at the time of the reservation. That way, if the rental price should rise during the ensuing one year leading up to the wedding, you are still locked in at the lower price. This is also true of caterers, decorators, and entertainers. Locking in at a price a full year early means savings, and saving money is usually a nice caveat when planning a wedding.
An added bonus to an early reservation
The earlier you can make your reservation, the more time you have to plan your wedding with the dimensions of the wedding venue in mind. It gives you more time to fit your dream into the specific dimension of the event center, and all of that pre-planning will mean less chance of problems occurring as the big day approaches.
The bottom line is this
The early bird most-definitely catches the worm when renting wedding venues. It makes your life much easier, and we have found, from an event center management standpoint, it makes our lives easier as well.
