If one element can define the style of your upcoming Tennessee wedding single-handedly, it will most likely be your venue. After all, the space itself will ultimately dictate most of the other features of your wedding decor. However, some venues lend themselves to more freedom and creativity for decorating than others. For some brides, choosing a wedding venue that allows for seemingly limitless options can be the perfect choice in order to fully utilize your wedding venue space. Whether you want to create a variety of experiences for your guests, display numerous scenic features or simply stun your guests with how your decor complements the space, a structurally beautiful and strategically placed venue can provide everything you need. To help brides know what specific venue features to look for that will help them accomplish these limitless options, I spoke with Rita Wright, Sales Manager at the beautiful Memphis venue Tunica RiverPark. Read on for Rita’s fabulous ideas!

1. Brides should look for a venue that is located near a variety of scenic features.

The saying “it’s what’s on the inside that counts” should definitely apply when choosing your groom, but not necessarily when choosing your venue. Brides should find a space that will stun their guests from the moment they step foot on the property to the moment they leave. And while enough fabulous decor can transform any space, an elegant scenery can stand alone or be complemented with your own touch. So, when it comes to having picturesque scenery, brides begin to have all kinds of options for their photos, views for their guests and a variety of different ambiances for their event. That’s why Rita suggests to brides that they search for a venue that is located in a prime location that offers a variety of scenic features.

“The Tunica RiverPark is the most unique and beautiful location for a memorable wedding and reception in the Mid-South. Located along the banks of the Mississippi River and surrounded by a hardwood forest, our beautiful garden terrace is the perfect location for your “I Do’s.” The spacious lobby can accommodate up to 300 guests for your reception, again with spectacular river views for you and your guests to enjoy.”

 2. For a truly unique event, choose a venue that offers experiential features to show your guests a fabulous time!

Over the years, it seems like the options for venue styles has continued to increase. Just about every type of building can be seen as a venue in some way. From mod art galleries, to historic museums, to country barns, there are all kinds of experiences that have been expanded to include the special experience of weddings. By choosing a venue that is associated with a fun and unique establishment, brides not only take advantage of the incredible decor already on display, but they can give their guests an entirely unique experience that they won’t find at a typical wedding. As Rita reminds brides, not only can this experience set your wedding apart, but it also allows for some absolutely amazing photo opportunities.

“Tunica RiverPark also includes the MS River Museum, featuring our fabulous aquariums along with the observation deck for the guests, to create the total MS River experience.  The photo opportunities are endless inside and out.”

3. Find a venue that has stunning structures, allowing you to do as little or as much decorating as your want!

No one can deny that there is incredible beauty in the architecture and the bare bones of a venue. In fact, it’s this innate beauty that allows brides the opportunity to go simplistic with their event design or choose to decorate lavishly and elegantly. In a sense, the architecture is the largest part of your decor in itself. So, Rita suggests brides that desire the liberty to go all out or keep it clean and simple should choose a space that’s bare bones can accommodate a variety of styles.

“Our facility is state-of-the-art in design and has won numerous architectural awards. Because of its location in the heart of our casino resort, luxurious rooms are available to accommodate your wedding party and guests.”
