helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

wedding 101Tonight I am honored to be attending a Special Preview Party for Wedding 101, a new unique wedding-planning resource center opening in The Factory at Franklin. Wedding 101 officially opens this Saturday, August 15th, 2009 but I was invited to come to the preview party for some behind-the-scenes insight.

Wedding 101 is a concept that's taken off in big cities like LA, Atlanta, NYC… so it's awesome that something this new and exciting is coming to the Nashville area!

Wedding 101 Nashville will be open during these hours:

Tuesday: 10:00am — 8:00pm
Wednesday — Friday: 10:00am — 6:00pm
Saturday: 10:00am — 5:00pm.

A complimentary service for brides, Wedding 101 was inspired by the highly successful Wedding Library and The Bridal Bar, based in New York City and Los Angeles. Brides will be able to see, hear, taste and touch the finest products and services that Middle Tennessee wedding professionals have to offer.

The 3,500 square-foot elegant yet hip showroom located in the loft above the commons area in The Factory is designed to educate and inspire brides and party throwers alike. Professional wedding vendors such as photographers, caterers, and floral designers will all market their services several ways, from Brochure Display and Shelf or Wall Display to a 30 sq. ft. Floor Display. Brides are invited to come and look through portfolios from a variety of wedding vendors all in one place saving valuable time and money.

Amy Hill Dickerson and Ashley Raye Hicks are the co-owners of Wedding 101. “After years of planning, we are so excited to bring this complimentary service to all brides in Middle Tennessee,” says Amy. “Our vendors are amazing and The Factory is the perfect location for this concept. No appointments are necessary and brides are welcome to come and take their time reviewing all the quality services that are available as they plan their perfect day.”

Each month, Wedding 101 plans to host a “Tuesday Tasting”, an evening event where brides can get a taste of the latest trends in cakes and catering, as well as wedding attire, jewelry, beauty, music, photography and more. Those interested in receiving email updates on the upcoming events can register by going to the Wedding 101 website at

I encourage all Nashville brides to take advantage of this unique wedding planning resource! I'll update with any more info I receive at the event tonight! 🙂
