We have our second wedding of 2017 this weekend and I’m extra excited because it’s my first time visiting Nashville! Will is a groomsman but we should have a little free time to explore on Sunday and I would love any recommendations you have for dining and shopping. I’ve heard only amazing things!

This particular wedding is black tie optional (and I’ll likely be scrambling for a dress last minute per usual…) but I always keep an eye out for wedding guest-appropriate dresses as that’s one of the questions I’m asked most frequently this time of year. When I spotted this polka dot halter dress for under $100, I knew I’d have to share! I love the high neck and fitted waist and the pattern makes it a little different from all the other party dresses I own. If you have a spring wedding coming up, this should definitely be on your radar!

  1. Adeles has an amazing Sunday brunch. I also love Le Sel. 12 south has several cute shops including Draper James and Whites Merchentile! Enjoy! Hillsboro Village is also a cute place to walk around and shop.

  2. Hi!
    I’m from Nashville – so excited you’re in my city! I would recommend Pinewood Social, I love the décor and the coffee cocktails they have. It’s seriously is such a mood boost to grab a cocktail and sit in the pretty surroundings! They have bowling, which is very fun, but I typically go for just cocktails. I think you would enjoy walking around 12 South, they have some great food options (Bartaco has beautiful navy and white décor!) and that’s where Draper James is. I also think you’d enjoy any of the M Street restaurants (Saint Anejo, Motto, Virago) and the Gulch neighborhood — very easy to walk around and take in the sights and sounds, but it does get filled up on the weekends with lots of people! I live downtown now and recommend Etch as a newer, trendier restaurant and Merchant’s as something that’s been in Nashville for a while. It’s had a recent facelift, but it’s still got a great southern menu and a well stocked bar. I grew up south of Nashville, in Franklin, and if you’re up for a little excursion — I cannot recommend it enough. Downtown Franklin is something like Stars Hollow and Gray’s on Main is delicious — I have not ordered a plate or drink that I haven’t loved. White’s Mercantile is a really fun shop, and there are plenty of little shops to walk through.

    I could go on forever, but I hope the above gives you some ideas! Welcome to Nashville, we are happy to have you!
