It's All Here!

It's All Here!

You need so many things for a wedding. Since it is probably the largest and most expensive party you will put on in your life, it can be extremely overwhelming and financial shocking. To help meet that need, there are bridal shows. They advertise themselves as a one stop shop for wedding planning. In many ways, they are a one stop shop. What we have discovered during 2020 is that large gatherings of people will not be possible for a while.


So can a couple still have the convenience of multiple vendors close to each other?


It can still totally happen. One of the best options is plan your wedding local. I happen to think Donelson is a great place to get a lot of it done in one place.

Bridal House of Nashville is located in Donelson, TN. Start your day with your own private dress appointment in a relaxing environment with plenty of options for dresses. After you have found the perfect gown, head over just up the road on Donelson Pike to Tucker Photography. Jason has a great eye and been capturing the magical and emotional moments of wedding days for 25 years.

After a consultation to plan out photography for your day, head over to Lebanon road to the Nashville Flower Market. If you want help and expertise on how to do your own flowers at your wedding, they can set you up. They will help you see the types of flowers and support you in learning how to make it come together. Seriously, they will help you know what kind of flowers to ask them to order and then teach you how to put it all together.

If you are wanting someone to take care of the flowers for you, because, face, it, there is a lot of work and planning into the DIY wedding, In Full Bloom is your place to go. Just over the Stones River in Hermitage, and next door to Donelson, they can do it all for your special day. They will listen to what you want, show up, and work their magic. They work on bouquets, arches, centerpieces, and any other floral ideas you have.

Don’t forget you need food, and let’s face it, by now you need a break and are getting hungry. There are lots of great restaurants over here in Donelson and right around the corner from Bridal House of Nashville, Tucker Photography, and the Nashville Flower Market. McNamara’s is a one of a kind local restaurant with authentic Irish food. When they fully reopen, they have live Irish music so you can even find some unique live music for your wedding reception.

Another restaurant that will cater for your wedding reception or rehearsal dinner is Party Fowl. They are a local Nashville favorite and never disappoint.

If you are going for a smaller wedding, historic Stone Hall is a great option. I have seen indoor weddings done on this beautiful site that is owned by Nashville Parks and Recreation. There is an outdoor garden area that you can set up tables and string lights across. The beautiful tall iron garden gates make a great location for vows, and the house has updated handicap accessible facilities. Check it out for a 2021 wedding. 

We didn’t even get started talking about the places you will need to glam yourself up with hair, makeup, and nails.  Guess that has to be saved for another day. Any way you work it out, you can do a lot of wedding planning in a short amount of time because there are so many amazing professionals here in the Donelson Area.
