Say Yes To The Wedding Party Dress

A common problem when looking for the right bridesmaid dress or groomsman suit is finding something that everyone looks and feels good in, so consider the idea of choosing one color and a few styles or letting the party work it out for themselves with some color guidelines. Have a theme your heart is set on? Travel to these suggested places and have experts lend you a hand. Spend some quality time with the girls, try on a myriad of styles and find the ones that look as if they were truly made just for you.

Capturing the Moment

Your magical moments can be preserved for all time – you just want to hire someone to be sure that happens. Sure, you’ll create your own hashtag, set up a site for an Instagram friendly feed and find your favorite shots up on Facebook a week later – but what if you’re looking for something a bit more professional? Check out the likes of a variety of local photographers (including Schenk Photography and Tausha Ann Photography) and see if anyone’s wedding portfolio art jives with the needs of your own. The pictures make the memories last that much longer – it’s one of those line items on the budget that might get pushed to the top of the ‘must haves’ list.

Finding the Music

You met the love of your life, you have a favorite song and your guests love to party! For all these things and more, you might want the assistance of some form of musical genius and then some. Perhaps you find a local band or your venue space can recommend their favorites. Either way, enlist the help of those in the know and have your musical vision take flight for your special day.

Take a Bit of Nashville With You

You’ve made your wedding a destination event and you want your guests to take home a little piece of this magical city. Talk to local vendors, check out local finds and let your taste buds do the research. Perhaps give a note from the shop, a handwritten one from a calligrapher or an extra one from you and your newlywed love and you’re bound to capture the moment with a smile.

  • Thistle Farms Products
  • High Note Gifts
  • Grab the Gold Snack Bars
  • Goo Goo Clusters
  • The Christie Cookie Company
  • The Bang Candy Company
  • Batch

Find Nashville’s Sweet Spot

It’s one of those parts that so many love – the tasting! Whether you’re getting a cake by a local bakery like Dessert Designs or having one made by the maestros at The Cupcake Collection, your edible artwork might be the centerpiece for this entire fiesta. Taste their creations, talk to the artists and watch your vision come to edible life. Your crowd and their taste buds will thank you for going that extra mile.

Lock Down Day-Of Transportation

The typical go-to for day-of transportation is a limo or party bus for the wedding party and a vintage car for the bride’s arrival/newlyweds transport to the venue. In most cases, this is just fine but Nashville isn’t your typical place and if you want to capture all the special characteristics of Music City in every aspect of your wedding day, consider an out-of-the-box option for your bridal party’s ride to the venue. Old Town Trolley has private charters you can reserve to add that unique touch.
