We know there is power in spending, and weddings are the perfect opportunity to be mindful with that spending power. Weve seen first hand many of our brides conscious decisions of having a more eco-friendly sustainable wedding or supporting small/local businesses. Weve gathered a list of BIPOC owned businesses and wedding vendors to support online or locally here in Nashville while wedding planning/shopping because we believe its important to be aware of the impact that your spending makes.

Cushnie They also have traditional bridal, but ready to wear available on Net-A-Porter. Were in love with this off shoulder pant outfit.
