small reception venues

What are your expectations regarding budget wedding venues? Obviously, as the name applies, you are expecting a lower rental cost, but what else do you expect from inexpensive wedding venues?

And is there common ground between your expectations and the reality of budget wedding venues in your city?

We are Tarrant Events Center, one of many Fort Worth wedding venues, and in this article we will share our thoughts on budget wedding venues, give you some “insider” information you will find helpful.  Call us at 817-996-3636 for more information or to arrange for a tour of our event center.

What you should expect from budget wedding venues

Notice this subtitle does not say “what to expect,” but rather it says “what you should expect.” These are two different matters.  What to expect takes into account some rather poor choices of wedding venues, found in any city, based solely on low prices but few amenities. What you should expect is based on the current market in Fort Worth, and what we consider a quality wedding venue to be.  In our opinion, if you do not receive what Tarrant Events Center offers, you should move on until you find a place which does offer what we offer for the price we have.

What, then, should you expect? We believe you should expect the following:

  • Flexibility
  • All-inclusive pricing
  • Ample parking and overflow parking
  • Indoor and outdoor options

Let’s look at each of these in a bit more detail.


The wedding is your dream come true, and you should have the flexibility to make that dream a reality.  Flexibility allows you to do that. Let’s use Tarrant Events Center for an example of flexibility. We have ten floor plans to choose from. We have a movable stage which we can make smaller or larger.  We have a finishing kitchen and two VIP rooms.  We allow you to negotiate with food vendors, entertainment providers, and decorators.  We give you a blank canvas and tell you to pain the picture you have in your mind.

All-inclusive pricing

No hidden fees! No last-minute hidden costs?  Sign a leasing agreement with Tarrant Events Center, and you can sign on a full year in advance, and the price you agreed upon is the price you will pay when the event occurs, not a penny more, no negative surprises at the last minute, no gauging you, no nickel-and-diming you, just the pre-agreed upon price and nothing more.

Ample Parking

The last thing you want is for the wedding party, and guests, to have to park blocks away and walk to the wedding ceremony.  Make sure parking is available, ample parking plus overflow parking.

Indoor and Outdoor options

Tarrant Events Center offers what you need for indoor wedding venues, but we also have over one-acre of landscaped grounds, giving you the outdoor wedding venues option, or perhaps an indoor wedding and outdoor wedding party.  You may not want the option, but we believe it is a nice option to have.  Or just having a place where guests can go outside, in privacy, for some air and a walk-around is nice.

A word about Tarrant Events Center

We are locally owned and operated. We offer everything we mentioned above, and we offer it at a price which will not break your personal bank. Call us for more details and to arrange for a tour of our facility.  Don’t think small when you think budget wedding venues. Think Tarrant Events Center!
