Micro Weddings are becoming increasingly more popular – and for good reason! Not only can they be a little gentler on a budget (but not necessarily – you do you!), but they also allow you to focus more on the things that matter most in life: your closest friends, family, and, of course, each other. Of course, there are some venues, especially here in Tennessee, that are better suited to more intimate celebrations than others. Having a hard time finding them? You’re in the right place! Here is a list of my favorite Micro Wedding venues in Tennessee.
