Our wedding was amazing. Our guests had a lovely time, we had a lovely time, and the various little things that went wrong didn't matter in the end. Nashville is a beautiful place to get married and there are tons of options for every price range. Our guests loved coming into town to visit!
We were completely thrilled with Nashville Party Authority. They were so easy to work with throughout the planning process, were really receptive to our vision for the event, and supplied everything we needed (it was a complicated request) for a VERY reasonably price. Our DJ was amazing. He made no mistakes and was extremely professional. I can't recommend them highly enough.
I don't have enough positive things to say about Action Tents, and the owner, Steve. He was a joy to work with from day 1. He got me everything I needed, was extremely flexible, and he prices can't be beat. He was extremely patient with me as I changed my mind month after month, and he followed through on absolutely everything he promised. Book early and you may get a discount off his already very low prices!
The only reason they get 3 stars is because the cake was so. amazing. The customer service was abysmal. After reserving our delivery time 5 months in advance, I found out 4 days before my wedding that they had another delivery to make at the same time and so they wouldn't be able to deliver my cake. They were supposed to deliver at 4, but refused and said the only other option was 10am. My venue doesn't have air conditioning, and my buttercream icing would have melted long before my 7pm reception if it had to sit there for 9 hours. I explained this to them, explained that they had promised to delivery at 4pm, and they agreed that they had and that the cake would probably melt but insisted there was nothing they could do. I asked if they would deliver the cake later than 4--after this new delivery--and they said they wouldn't because it would be after business hours. I ended up having to hire a courier service to pick up my cake and deliver it to my venue. I will never do business with them again, because it was clear to me that my delivery was simply unimportant to them because they were delivering a more expensive cake to someone else. Be careful with them.
Guests were very comfortable, and the group rate was excellent. They kept our out of town bags and handed them out to the guests as they checked in--nice touch!
This was a lovely location, and very reasonably priced. Every one of our guests loved it. We had the ceremony on the front lawn, cocktail hour inside, and dinner in a tent on the back lawn. I was very happy with how it turned out. A few negatives--no air conditioning inside. This wasn't a huge problem for us because our wedding was in May and it wasn't really hot yet--but anything later in the summer would probably be pretty uncomfortable. Also, the venue representative did a walk through with my parents after they cleaned up the night of the wedding, and said that everything looked great. Then, the event coordinator went through on Monday, said it didn't look great, and kept our security deposit. I was pretty peeved that someone told us it was fine and then changed their minds--had they let us know that something was amiss the night of the wedding, we would have cleaned it up, but they did not. Be really really sure that your clean up is acceptable!
