Here’s the other issue with Tennessee weddings in popular tourist destinations such as Knoxville wedding venues and wedding venues in Middle TN
The Great Smoky Mountains are one of the most popular wedding destinations. But the truth is, this location is often entirely crowded during the wedding season.
That takes a bit away from the allure of escaping to the mountains and enjoying nature.
Hotel rooms skyrocket for your guests during peak season, and the highway gets very congested.
Crowds of people will flock to all the nearby attractions, taking away from the secluded allure that you deserve for your event.

Do you want a venue that will provide your food, or are you planning on using catering or an outside vendor? Consider what style your wedding is and what vibe you want to help you pick your catering style.
And how much do you want to spend on the catering?
Do you want to go with pre-set catering choices at a venue or have the option to customize your menu? The first option is more convenient, but the second option is more personal and unique.
Some venues in TN charge you for off-site catering…or even the light bill.
Even worse, some venues don’t have an onsite prep kitchen, so you’ll have to fork out hundreds or thousands extra to keep your food at the right temperature at your venue.
P.S. Sandy Creek lets you choose your vendors, including catering, has an onsite kitchen, and we don’t have hidden fees or unwanted surprises! When you plan or work with a wedding planner at Sandy Creek, you can work with any licensed and insured caterer to bring your culinary dreams to life.
2. How to narrow down venues: budget.
How much can you spend on the event venue? There is a wide range of prices and options available, so ask yourself what’s most important to you when deciding this. You’ll spend most of your budget on your venue and catering, and most couples have no idea what they should pay or how to compare Tennessee wedding venues.
Make sure you know the total cost upfront before you sign any contract or paperwork.
The last thing you want is a venue that charges a low rental fee but makes all their money selling alcohol to your guests.
Our advice? Compare all the Tennessee venues you’re looking at and what they offer.
If one offers something the other doesn’t or you have a question about hidden fees, contracts, or more, ask them. If they are shy to answer or don’t have a definitive answer, don’t work with that venue! Hiring a wedding planner is also a fantastic way to help you pick your dream venue and know this information upfront cause they’ve already done all the legwork.
3. How to narrow down venues: guest count.
How many guests will the wedding venue accommodate? Remember, more space means a higher price tag; if your guest list is below that number, it might not be worth paying for an extra room.
What size wedding venue do you need? There are venues for as few as 20 people up to 1000+. What arrangement does your party have – banquet or reception style tables, round tables, high tops?
Most venues can accommodate a small number of guests. But if you have many guests, you’ll want to start your venue search even earlier than you think you need to.
5. How to narrow down more wedding venues in TN according to amenities and inclusions you can’t live without.
What’s important to you? Maybe you want a charming wedding venue with a woodland ceremony and a rustic indoor reception – or a country wedding venue that offers a bridal suite and intimate wedding decor items onsite. Perhaps you’re looking for onsite accommodations or a venue that provides activities for your wedding guests. P.S. we offer all of this!
Whatever is most important to you, list those items and use them to vet and narrow your venue search. Knowing what the venue offers is key to having a successful wedding. Some venues loop their amenities and inclusions into their wedding packages to give you a better deal.
4. How to narrow down your budget: wedding photography wants.
Your wedding photos will be the most important keepsake from your day. Ensure you can capture the photos that make up these memories at your venue by taking a tour or viewing pictures online beforehand.
Endless photo opportunities at our venue
At our private estate, we have 430 acres with endless photo opportunities for you to choose from. When you pick a Nashville wedding venue, you’re often stuck with the same photos that all your other friends have from their weddings. You want unique wedding photos, right? So be sure to consider this when looking at venues in TN.
Here’s another thought: if you have to have photos at that beautiful barn, historic church, Cumberland River, or bell tower, take your engagement photos there with a wedding photographer!
5. How to narrow down your Tennessee wedding venues’ search: date and the season.
The time of year and weather will significantly impact your wedding. Your wedding vibe and style will be impacted depending on if you choose a spring, summer, fall, or winter wedding in Tennessee. For example, a Fall wedding in Tennessee offers cooler temperatures and beautiful colors.
The winter will be chilly but offer you plenty of opportunities to have a gorgeous wedding dress and maybe even a fur (or faux fur) bolero that will make for AMAZING photos. We absolutely love when our wedding couples dress their wedding for the season. You won’t get photo opportunities like that in a venue in downtown Nashville!
There are many great venues to look at, from historic building options to east Tennessee and places that host more weddings than you can count, but whatever you do, make sure you know what the venue will look like on your wedding date!
6. How to narrow down your search: style and taste.
You must narrow down a few different styles to get the most out of your wedding day.
The style should determine what matters most to you and your partner and what will make for an eventful experience.
Your big day is one of the most important days of your life. It’s a time to celebrate with those closest to you and create lifelong memories that will last for years.
Good luck in your search!
