Choosing the wedding venue is one of the most exciting, important aspects of wedding planning. The location that the bride and groom choose will be one that is forever cherished as a reminder of the beautiful wedding day for many years to come. We recently spoke with gorgeous Nashville venue, Iriswoods, to gain some more insight on venue selection and how to make a great venue your own on the wedding day.

When the bride and groom begin their journey of finding a great venue, there are a few important initial steps to take. There are so many gorgeous wedding venues to choose from in the Nashville area making it difficult for Nashville brides to know where to start! First, it is important to have an idea of your budget. Some venues, like Iriswoods, offer multiple packages to cater to different budgets.

Secondly, the couple should decide on the style of wedding that they would like to have from rustic to elegant to traditional. “Here at Iriswoods, we like to say ‘where rustic meets elegance.'” Also, venues book wedding fairly quickly, so Iriswoods recommends starting the venue search as soon as possible to make sure that the couple books the venue they have always dreamed of!

Wedding decor can truly make a venue special for each bride and groom. Iriswoods has such a large inventory of decor that brides and grooms can choose from within their wedding day packages. “We love getting to know all our brides and grooms and being able to make suggestions based on their personal style and preference.”

To make the most of  the wedding venue experience, the bride and groom should take advantage of all that a wonderful venue, like Iriswoods, has to offer, such as the space itself and the inclusion of wedding elements, such as beautiful decor. “Our inventory is so extensive, there is no need for a couple to buy all their own decor to use for one day…from vases, chalk boards, antique doors, arbors, candelabras, mason jars, we have you covered!”

Choosing the perfect wedding venue is so important and special because it sets the mood for a wedding. Iriswoods makes a beautiful backdrop for each celebration with the historic circa 1850 log home, huge century old shade trees, and large open fields. There is something special about being a part of people’s happiest day where strangers become friends.”
