Tennessee is made for adventurous couples with a love of the alternative, who want to grab the bull by the horns (metaphorically speaking, although you could literally, here).
The state is known for its time-honoured roots in America’s country music scene. Memphis can even boast its claim as the stomping ground of Elvis himself, with his iconic Graceland mansion being based here.
Nostalgic music lovers are spoilt for choice here. There’s the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Grand Ole Opry, and countless honky-tonks to experience. Plenty of music selection to keep your wedding going into the early hours!
The spirit of these greats lives on in the vibe of Tennessee. The state has numerous trendy speakeasies and secret, hidden bars, which feel timeless and hipster all at once.
Tennessee wedding visitors would be mad to miss out on the local cuisine. This is proper, indulgent stuff, and our mouths are practically drooling already. The first stop has to be a traditional Memphis-style barbecue, followed by a rich slab of country ham, and finished with a few glasses from one of the state’s famous wineries. Your wedding celebration isn't complete without this Southern-style comfort food, done just as we’ve been craving.
After you’ve filled your boots, Tennessee has an incredible natural landscape, filled with sights to explore. There’s the Gatlinburg Skylift Park, with its breath-taking Gatlinburg SkyBridge (the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in North America), the enchanted trail of the Rock City Gardens, or the tranquil Old Stone Fort State Archaeological Park.
In fact, the magnificent Bays Mountain Park even has its own state-of-the-art planetarium theatre - what better way to soak up nature’s beauty?
