4 Things To Consider After You Get Engaged in Nashville

By JP Events Staff

July 2, 2018

So you’re engaged and getting married in Nashville – congratulations!  Now it’s time to plan a beautiful, Nashville wedding.  But where do you start?

Your wedding is a big deal and some may say one of the largest expenses of your life.  We’re certain that you’re concerned over who to hire so that your Nashville wedding is the talk of the town and one that you’ll remember with a smile on your face for the rest of your life.

Before hiring just anyone, take a look at these top questions to ask your Nashville wedding professionals:

  • First and foremost, ask about the basics – such as if they have your wedding date opened, if they’ve worked with your venue before, and so on. These question may seem obvious, but they are very important – so make sure not to forget about them.
  • Ask about prices too. For instance, if you want to serve passed appetizers, ask about the price difference between served appetizers and buffet appetizers. Furthermore, ask about the price of a menu for kids. We know money talk can be uncomfortable, but it’s crucial that you have a clear understanding as to what your Nashville wedding will cost before signing any contracts.
  • Be sure to ask about all the “fine prints” in the contract. More often than not, this is where the important details lie, so read and ask about this before you strike a deal so that you don’t have to face unpleasant surprises.
  • Last, but not least, ask about “technicalities” and numbers. What is the last date when you can send the final guest list? How will the professionals be dressed? These pieces of information are crucial, so place them on your list of questions.

There are several other questions you should ask but these will get the conversation started.  If planning your own Nashville wedding sounds overwhelming, you’re not alone.  That’s why the first phone call should be to a professional wedding planner.  You don’t have to go it alone…we’re here to help!
