Try your options.

 

Drive from the venue to your parents’ house, and time it.  Decide if your guests would be comfortable with it.  Many will be.  I’m orignally from a city just south of Nashville, and I once had to drive 30 minutes to get to a reception.  It was a little lame, but so much fun when we got there.  If you can have more of the reception you want at your parents’, then do it.

 

If not, there are loooots of places around Nashville.  Think about any restaurants with party rooms or lounges, Cheekwood or the Frist.  Any chance your venue would let you set up for a reception outside?

 

Hope it helps!  Mind if I ask at which historic mansion you are getting married ?

If you go with a restaurant option, many restaurants can do a set menu with a couple of choices of appetizer, entree, etc. and let you pick the beverages served. That gives you a bit of control over the costs. 

If you do something at your husband’s parent’s house, consider hiring a caterer to take care of the food while everyone’s at the ceremony.

Glad I could help!  I think you’re right that the best choice will make itself known.  Your wedding  in-the-making sounds lovely.
