Venue Choice

As with any event, your venue choice provides the entire atmosphere for your wedding and usually sets the tone for the rest of your decor. With a classic wedding, you want your venue to have features that reflect the timelessness of your day.

The Hermitage Hotel in downtown Nashville does just that and more! This unbelievably gorgeous hotel was originally built in 1910, and still carries those aspects of old time glamour and class today which is why it is perfect for the classic couple! I mean, the exterior alone sold me, but the inside is just as stunning!

Color Scheme & Design

Speaking of interiors, with a space this gorgeous, you don’t need a lot of decor. Keep it simple in color scheme and design. A neutral or all white palette is perfectly crisp, clean, and classic, while gold details and romantic candles add the most splendid complements.

Exquisite Attire

A classic wedding wouldn’t be the same with exquisite attire. For the men, a black tuxedo is a go-to, and for good reason right ladies? Hubba, hubba.

For the bride, lace gowns are very popular for classic weddings, but you have other options as well! Think A-line or a traditional ball-gown! If you want a more modern look that still has a timeless quality, choose a gown with clean lines and a nicer material. A long flowing veil is a must!
