We are Tarrant Events Center of Fort Worth, an all-purpose event center which is affordable and highly-adaptable for any social gathering. Call us at 817-996-3636 for more information but first, let’s talk about saving you money on reception halls.
Traditionally, you rent a reception hall rental after renting a wedding venue.
“Traditionally” is a good word for this topic because it’s been this way for as long as any of us can remember. You rented a wedding venue i.e. a church, a hall, a tourist location, and then you turned around and rented a separate reception hall. The most obvious reason for doing this, following this approach, was because most wedding venues did not have the infrastructure to also accommodate a reception. It was logistically necessary to rent two halls, one for the actual wedding and one for the reception.
Necessary and quite expensive!
The average cost of a reception hall rental.
The cost of a reception venues is hard to nail down in an article like this. The cost is dependent upon the size of the hall, the quality of the hall, the location, and the number of event venues available in your city. We can tell you that reception halls, in most cities, can be found for as little as $500 per event, and in many large cities, there are event venues which can cost upwards of $10,000 per event.
We simply can’t narrow it down any better than that but, for the sake of this discussion, let’s use $3,000 as the price of a wedding venue and also the price of a reception venue. Using that cost figure, anyone planning a wedding will lay out $6,000 in rental fees. Add to that the cost of decorations, of food, and of entertainment, plus incidental costs which always arise, and it is easy to see why most weddings are very, very expensive.
Consider this approach.
Our approach is the reason behind the design of Tarrant Event Center. We purposely designed our event venue with flexibility in mind. We not only have the main room but also two VIP rooms. We have ten floor plans to choose from. We have a finishing kitchen and a moveable stage . . . and we have over an acre of landscaped grounds included in the rental. In other words, our event center design allows people to hold the wedding AND the reception both at the one location, saving our customers the cost of one rental.
Our suggestion, then, for those not living in Fort Worth, is to look for affordable wedding venues which also have the flexibility to also accommodate the reception as well, thus saving you thousands of dollars in rental fees.
