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 sure to be 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.

How to narrow down venues using catering options.

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.

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 do your planning 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.

How to narrow down venues according to your budget.

How much can you spend on the event venue? There is such a wide range of prices and options available, so ask yourself what’s most important to you when deciding this. You’ll spend the majority 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 what the total cost will be 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.

Guess what? We have all of our pricing upfront – no secrets! Take a look here: https://sandycreekfarms.com/investment-destination-wedding-tennessee/

We even have an elopement package if you want something more affordable.

Our advice? Compare all the Tennessee venues you’re looking at and what they have to 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.

4. How to narrow down your budget according to your guest count.

How many guests will the wedding venue accommodate? Remember, more space means a higher price tag, and 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?

78 wedding pictures tennessee wedding venues

Most venues can accommodate a small number of guests. But if you have a large number of 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.

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!

7. How to narrow down your Tennessee wedding venues’ search according to your wedding date and the season.

The time of year and weather will greatly 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!
