  1. You can reserve the Iris Garden at Ellington Agricultural Center for $100 donation, but it is an outdoor space with gazebo and you must rent your own chairs, etc. I still think it’s one of the best cheap spots in Nashville!

    I think it would be a fun project to research wedding spots at the various Nashville parks. Their website is really lacking in that regard, and I’ve never seen much information elsewhere other than the Centennial Park locations. Even then, no one talks much about the Centennial Arts Center which has a lovely herb garden, pergola, and outdoor tables in a walled courtyard–all available for an hourly fee.

  2. Hello, I am trying to help my daughter find a unique outdoor wedding venue. They are looking more for a barn type venue or something that is not the typical wedding location. They are not looking for your golf club, banquet facility venue. We are also concerned a bit with price, so as much as they are able to do and arrange themselves would be great. The groom, has planned several weddings for other people, but they are looking for something different. Please let me know if there is anything you can think of to help us. Thank You!!

  3. Johnte & Tanisha we would like to renew our vows of 13years plus our five kids.We never hade a wedding or reception befor. we’ll only have about fourty people show in our party. nothing big just a night to remember is all we ask.our anniversary is on march 23rd and if there’s any thing you can do please email us at johntealmon@yahoo.com. THANKSI

  4. Does anyone know an outdoor venue for a barn/rustic wedding ceremony?
    Only 50 guests and very small reception…cake and punch. This is for my sister who wanted to run off and get married because of small $ budget. I asked her to consider Franklin TN first.
    Any help would be very appreciative.

  5. Hi. We’re looking for a cheap indoor venue for a small wedding reception this May of less than 100 people. Just need room for tables and a dance floor. Location doesn’t really matter, but the family is on a tight budget. Thanks!

  6. Does anyone know of places with wedding packages? I was thinking of doing a destination wedding bc the packages are just so cheap and easy, anything similar to that in Nashville??

  7. I am currently working with a bride where she is having her wedding at Grace Valley Farm in Shelbyville, Tennessee. They have so much to help you save in costs and you can have the wedding and reception all in the same area! They offer lighting, linens and props and a host of other things. I also know of a photographer and event DJ couple that work that venue quite often. Willow Tree Photography , Jennifer Olmstead, Owner, and her husband, Travis Olmstead of DJ T Rav are amazing!
