Getting married on a farm may be more work and more money for you! See why here…

We LOVE farm weddings and they are all the rage right now however sometimes using a family farm could end up being more expensive and more of a headache than renting some of the most popular venues in town! When you are thinking about what you need for a wedding, it can get overwhelming so we have put together a list for you of vendors you need to hire and things you need to rent when you are hosting your wedding at a private property.

            We don’t want to scare you away from having your wedding on a family farm. These types of weddings can be sentimental and absolutely lovely however, you have many factors to consider. A venue will provide you with a lot of these things so that you don’t have to have more vendors than you can count on your fingers and toes.  If you are wanting a farm wedding but don’t have a family or friend’s farm to host it at, check out some of our favorite Nashville farm wedding venues around town…

 

Drakewood Farms

 

Mint Springs Farms 

 

Cedarwood

 

Ready to make a decision? Here are the 5 main factors to consider:

 

1) Budget

 

2) Vision

 

3) Location

 

4) Availability

 

5) Time you have to plan a wedding (or you can just call us) to handle all of your needs for your big day!

 

HAPPY PLANNING!
