If you are doing an online search for wedding venues DFW, stop right now and use your time more wisely. There are simply too many wedding venues in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. You will be inundated with possibilities, but no closer to finding the one you actually want and need.
And that’s as good a starting point as any: what do you want and need in a venue rental?
In this article we will give you some guidelines to follow which should make your search a bit easier. You can also call us for information. We are Tarrant Events Center, serving the Greater Fort Worth/Tarrant County area, and we are here to serve.
Develop a game plan
What’s your game plan? We suggest you sit down and decide upon the following:
- What is your budget?
- What is your vision?
- What amenities do you pay for and which do you provide yourself?
- Location, Location, Location?
- Picking a date
Let’s look at each of these.
What is your budget?
Budget should not be a concern to you, no matter what your budget is. There are affordable wedding venues, like Tarrant Events Center, available in the DFW Megaplex. No worries on that count. There are also expensive wedding venues at your service. You can spend $500 or you can spend $20,000. Determine your budget and then use that to narrow down your list of options. We are your wedding venue.
What is your vision?
Your vision will affect and be guided by your budget to a certain extent. To a financially-strapped person, this is most definitely true. Having very little money shrinks one’s vision of the perfect wedding for sure. What we want you to do is realistically imagine the perfect wedding, and then ask yourself if it is possible to have that wedding within the constraints of your budget?
Amenities is one factor of an event room rental which can be controlled by you to a certain extent. You can arrange, by yourself, for food to be delivered. You can ask your cousin to be a bartender. You can have your friend’s band play at the wedding. You can do all of those things and save a great amount of cash, rather than having the wedding venue provide some of them plus a mark-up in price.
Our suggestion: save money and provide the amenities yourself. At Tarrant Events Center, we encourage that action. We provide the venue and then leave the amenities to you. We provide tables, chairs, linens, a kitchen, parking, and room to roam. We leave the rest up to you to make happen. That keeps our price down, making us king among inexpensive wedding venues, and leaves you with decisions to make but also saved money in the bank.
Centrally-located – that is the dream. Find a place which is easy to get to. You don’t want your attendees/guests to travel too many miles for this event. And also make sure the venue has ample parking plus overflow parking like you will find at Tarrant Events Center.
Picking a date
Pick a date during peak wedding dates and the price will remain high. Pick a date off-season, and you are liable to find a better price. In other words, get marries in November rather than May, if possible. Your options will also increase if you do so.
