Should I look at all-inclusive venues in the area like Spring Hill TN and Nashville TN?

All-inclusive wedding packages typically cover a lot from decor to a wedding coordinator! Most packages are not truly all-inclusive, the meaning of course you’ll still be paying for wedding invitations, your bridal shower, etc.

BYO Vendors to Sandy Creek Farms

In fact, many venues give their clients a list of preferred suppliers including caterers, florists, and other decorators. Sandy Creek Farms is no different; we don’t want to lock you into certain vendors, so we allow you to bring your own vendors, and also have preferred vendors to match your unique style.

It is important to note that all-inclusive packages are usually best for smaller weddings (under 100 guests).

If you’re planning a much larger wedding, an all-inclusive package may not be the best option. When planning such a large event it is important to consult with professionals who can help ensure your day goes off without a hitch no matter what.

If you’re having a large wedding, hire a wedding planner.

Larger weddings require hiring a team of professionals who have the skills needed to pull off an amazing event.

But if you have limitations and a smaller budget, it can be beneficial to use an all-inclusive wedding package.

What to look for when researching all-inclusive venues

When viewing potential venues/venues in person, keep in mind what is included with their packages and whether or not that includes everything you want.

For example, some venues provide food and drink but the cake they provide may not be up to par with what you exactly want, so you will need to add on a baker yourself. That’s why sometimes a more inclusive package isn’t a great option for you (ones that include catering, etc.)

Customize your wedding to perfection

If you want a custom wedding without being locked in, hiring your own vendors with the help of a wedding planner is the way to go!

Have some peace of mind

For many couples, an all-inclusive wedding package provides them with peace of mind and helps them stay within their budget. If this sounds like something you might want to consider, look at local venues and determine if they offer this type of package.

Many couples choose to work with these packages after they have settled on a certain venue because they know exactly what’s included- and usually save money in the process.

Researching different venues in your area will give you an idea of what else is included with their packages.

Make sure you hire professionals to build your decor, cake, and flowers- not included in most all-inclusive wedding packages!

Often these packages also provide a discount if you book within a certain time frame.

It’s important to note that many vendors will require deposit payments for weddings so be sure to find out whether or not this is required when booking your package at the venue.

For many couples, an all-inclusive wedding package provides them with peace of mind and helps them stay within their budget. If this sounds like something you might want to consider, look at local venues and determine if they offer this type of package.

We hope this helps you narrow down your search for wedding venues! Don’t hesitate to reach out if you need any more help :)
