We all know the typical wedding vendors: you need catering, you need lighting, you need rentals, etc etc. But you need a unique wedding vendor, or vendors that go above and beyond the ordinary and can really elevate the entire wedding experience! If you have a little extra in your wedding budget, consider adding these vendors to your wedding!
A Custom Dance Floor
Nothing dazzles and amazes guests quite like a personalized and custom dance floor. The possibilities are truly endless, and an amazing dance floor can transform any space! A unique wedding vendor who is truly amazing at creating customized dance floors is INKcredible Dance floors. Here an example of one of their floors at our venue:
This gorgeous floral dance floor really elevated the reception space and the entire reception experience. There were so many compliments from guests who hadn’t seen anything like it before! Especially in event spaces where there isn’t a pre-designated dance floor, a custom dancefloor is perfect to show where the party begins.
A Live Wedding Painter
Pretty much every wedding has a photographer and a videographer, but have you ever heard of a live wedding painter? Instead of having just the photos to remember the wedding by, how about also having a beautiful piece of custom art that encapsulates the charm and beauty of the day! Plus, it makes for great entertainment for guests to watch a wedding painted. Heidi Schwartz is a wedding painter who frequents weddings here at The Estate at Cherokee Dock, and she never disappoints. She painted one of our favorite weddings, in which the captain of the predators Roman Josi married the beautiful Ellie Ottoway. The finished product was absolutely incredible! Heidi starts by painting the couple’s hashtag, which in this case was #josiheratthealter (pictured below), and then she starts painting! She paints throughout the ceremony and reception, and the finished product is always gorgeous. and it is the perfect way to remember your big day. She is definitely an amazing unique wedding vendor.
A Coffee Truck
Most weddings have a bartender, but how about a barista? If you are having an out of town wedding, wake your guests up with an aesthetically pleasing cup of joe. Or you can have it at the reception to keep the caffeine pumping for endless dancing! One of our brides had The Aero Bar come Sunday morning after her wedding. It was the perfect ending to an amazing wedding weekend! Pro tip: order their caramel oat milk latte!
A Flower Truck
Adding a flower truck is a great way to entertain guests during cocktail hour! Amelia’s flower truck is a Tennessee local vendor. You may have seen her cute little truck with fresh flowers on 12s or in the Franklin Factory, but did you know that she also rents out trucks for events? Your guests can enjoy creating their own bouquets from an array of gorgeous flowers on the truck!
All these awesome vendors would add a unique and special experience for you and your guests! Consider adding them to your wedding to an amazing and unforgettable wedding that people will be talking about for years to come.
