Sambuca recently announced an “all-inclusive” daytime wedding package. Brides can now rent out the entire restaurant for 4 hours on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday any time between 12pm-5pm.
The cost is $50 per guest and includes:
~ Valet parking
~ Passed appetizers
~ Lunch buffet
~ Use of restaurant's AV system
~ Wedding cake from Dulce Desserts
~ DJ and photo booth from FADD’s Entertainment
~ Taxes and gratuities
...all for the $50 per guest! Think about it, if you have 100 wedding guests, you can have just about everything you need for $5000. That's quite a deal.

Many Nashvillle brides got a taste of Kernels Gourmet Popcorn at our Sex and the City party a few years ago. Kernels hosted a wonderfully tasty popcorn bar with many flavors, including caramel, frosty, butter and drizzle.
Back then, the popcornery was by custom order but now...wait for it...they have a store in East Nashville! The colorful store opened last month and is the brainchild of my 3 childhood friends - Jennifer, Erica and Amber- who fell in love with the Chicago-style of popcorn and vowed to bring it to Nashville foodies.

2013 - Grand Opening in East Nashville
Kernels is now open to the public 6 days a week so you can get popcorn just about anytime you crave it. It is located at 2501B Gallatin Avenue Nashville, TN 37206. Their sweet and salty goodies also make great addition to wedding receptions or can easily be packaged as wedding favors.
Grab a bag or contact them to discuss options for your wedding. Visit my girls in person (tell them I said hello) or online at kernelsnashville.com.

It all started with an email from Scott of Scott and Kristin Photography, informing me of a new wedding venue, The Frontier Room at Whiskey Bent Saloon. A new venue is music to a bridal blogger's ears! We live for new venues, vendors - anything that gives brides great new options.
It's with great pleasure that I share high level details from Jill and John's Nashville wedding. Their ceremony was held in the venue's courtyard; the reception was held in their Whiskey Room. Scott and Kristin have more photos and details via their blog so be sure to view it. I've enjoyed working with Scott on this feature. He certainly seems like a great photographer if I might add:).

All Nashville wedding planners offer full wedding planning service, which means they take care of just about everything from vendor selection to every detail - from your proposal to your departure for your honeymoon. I highly recommend full service planning if you can find some way to fit the service into your budget, if you have to save somewhere else, a full service planning will save your sanity.
If you have cut everywhere possible and still can't hire a full planning package, there are two other options: month of coordination and day of coordination. Very few Nashville planners offer this limited service but Regalo Design offers full service as well as month-of and day-of-coordination.
What's included? See details below and contact Regalo Design at 615-482-1350 for a complimentary consultation.
Either way you go - please hire SOME help. You will thank me later.
