to be honest, the pictures might be deceiving.  i went to nashville/memphis a couple of years ago for vacation.   while in memphis, we stayed at heartbreak hotel (next to graceland).  the pictures looked cool.  it wasn’t.  the hotel was so rundown and gross.  it looked like it hadn’t been remodeled since the 70’s and needed a lot of work.

graceland itself was fine.  i don’t recall the chapel.  if that is what your are into, you should go for it.

 

nashville was much better.  it might be way out of your price range (we stayed at a hotel across the street) but gaylord in nashville was gorgeous.

I would suggest Nashville over Memphis. I live just south of Memphis, and have traveled there frequently. You’ll have much better luck (I think anyway) in finding venues and fun things to do on your trip in Nashville, rather than Memphis.

Memphis in the 2nd most dangerous city to be in as well as there is nothing to do up there. Its just a city with nothing to do. The only reason why I’m planning on gettung married in Memphis is because of my BF’s Mum (she has Primary Progressive Aphasia at 59 and she is mentally declining rapidly). Another option for you, if you like, is you can have your wedding in the mountains by Germantown/Servierville (nearby to Memphis, but still a drive away). But I highly encourage you not to go to Memphis. There’s really nothing to do there.

Sorry if I misspelled anything. Don’t have my glasses on.

If you like, I can send you a link for a wedding in the mountains that is all inclusive except for the food. The owners are photographers, so they have some stunning photography on their site (included in the wedding packages).

I apologise for some incorrect info. The Weddingbee site will not allow me to correct it. The link I sent you is much closer to Nashville, not Memphis (and therefore, not by Germantown). Sorry! I got things mixed up.

But the link I sent is still correct for a mountain wedding. πŸ™‚
