Overlooked Wedding Must-Haves | Private Events with City Winery Nashville

citywineryOpenHouse-25

City Winery Nashville’s talented Private Events team is well experienced in hosting weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners & more. Below, Event Manager Ryan Walters provides her advice for 3 easily overlooked wedding details every couple should always remember. Enjoy!

On such a special day, every couple’s focus is spread thin across a long list of event details: guest experience, food, drinks, decor, attire, music & so much more. It’s easy for the finishing touches to be overlooked with the bustle around such an exciting milestone! Time and time again, we see the same forgotten necessities that truly make weddings, receptions or rehearsal dinners much easier on our clients.

#1. Hire a Wedding Planner!

I always recommend booking a wedding planner with 1 month prior to your date at minimum. Depending on how extensive the planning and design needs to be, you may need partial or full-service planning. In the beginning, it’s easy to think you can do it all on your own. You have plenty of time, a well-appointed Pinterest board of ideas, and plenty of friends & family offering to help. Couples often under-estimate the amount of day-time meetings, e-mails, phone calls and decision-making this process really requires!

Not only will you be selecting colors, lighting and draping, but you’ll be juggling a full-time job, friends, significant other, family, gym time for that wedding shred! Don’t forget – Getting married can also include the joint tax filings, insurance, house, credit cards and bank account! Are you stressed yet?!

Just like Mary Poppins, a wedding planner can save the day! Planners guide the decision-making process for you, tie up loose ends, and most importantly, manage emotions. A wedding is a monumental life moment and a happy celebration, and with millions of tiny details during this emotional time, a great wedding planner can mirror the positive support some find in a therapist! They’ll listen to your opinions and supply guided leadership with emotional stability, creating evergreen memories that will sparkle with love and joy. Less stress for you!

#2. Food is Fuel!

Food is obviously a critical part of our existence. We require nourishment for our bodies to not only physically function properly, but also to maintain a positive mental well-being. With such a busy day, we always urge clients… don’t stop eating!

Don’t stop eating early in the day. Don’t stop eating before your dress fitting. Don’t stop eating in the days leading up to your wedding. And definitely don’t stop eating during the celebration! The person you’ve chosen to spend the rest of your life with loves you for you. The friends and family attending your wedding love you for you. Life is too short. Don’t be “hangry!” Drink some wine, indulge in the filet, and celebrate!

#3. Take a 15-Minute Break

Speaking from experience, this is the second most important event to happen on your special day, right after the “I Do’s.” Post-ceremony, couples are whisked away for photographs, followed by a rapid succession of hello’s, congratulations, cocktails and dancing. Before you know it, the clock strikes twelve! You’ll find yourself wondering where your new spouse has been all day.

Instead, plan a 15-minute break after the necessary photographs have been taken, and tuck yourselves away. Have your beverage of choice, drink water, enjoy appetizers and even dinner (time-permitting) with the one you love in private before the party continues!

This moment of reflection may be one of your favorite memories from the entire celebration. It allows for the couple to decompress and re-emerge to guests recharged and ready for dancing! Combine this 15-minute break with the help of your wedding planner and a full belly? You’ll be a stress-free, happy couple on your exciting day!

The Traditional 2018 Wedding Trend | Private Events with City Winery Nashville

satcher_wedding_0135

City Winery Nashville’s talented Private Events team is always searching for the latest wedding trends to incorporate into our rental spaces. Events Manager Ryan Walters is head over heels for the traditional, high class look. Below, she’s broken down her top 3 reasons why this design trend is currently her favorite. Enjoy!

Currently, I’m loving the return to wedding tradition: tuxedos, classic colors, formal attire, and elevated dining! Years ago, when barn and boho designs began to trend, this classic theme was driven out of inspiration boards out of need to be thrifty. I love the ethereal look of sunshine, reclaimed barn wood and earthy hydrangeas. It’s soft, feminine, and romantic. But, it seemed for so long, this was the only option. Not anymore! Now, with economic recovery brides are able to get creative and now there are more options.

#1. Putting yourself first!

To me, the return to classic tradition shows me brides are in a place of comfort and financial security. Job security and a growing strength in our economy have created the opportunity for brides to say, “I want this, I deserve this.” I love this confidence in our clients!

#2. Simplicity is timeless!

Personally, I’ve always been a sucker for simple elegance. My style icons are incredible ladies like Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O. I love clean lines and neutral colors with a bold contrast. It’s graceful and mature, photographs well, and can stand the test of time. Oh, and don’t forget the hint of gold! A little bit of sparkle goes a long way.

#3. Luxury Guest Experience!

I’m a total foodie with the heart of a servant, so I love that this traditional trend is bringing back the plated style of meal service! We’ve the opportunity to craft delicious hearty dishes in our event spaces, incorporating seasonal products and bold flavor profiles. By serving to guests in a plated manner, we set those in our care at ease, creating the opportunity for our staff to engage and anticipate needs with a personal touch. Guests are able to fully consume the day’s experience, not just their delicious filet paired with a bold Cabernet. At City Winery Nashville, it is our mission to ensure everyone leaves raving about the food, the drink, and most importantly, the love they felt on the couple’s special day!

We remain committed to the ideal of quality over quantity, which means we brew every drop of Radeberger Pilsner in our hometown, as we’ve always done, to ensure absolute consistency and quality around the world.Wherever you enjoy the distinctive flavor of Radeberger Pilsners, it will taste as crisp and as fresh as it does straight from the tap in our brewery.
