TWESA: Connecting Nashville Area Brides to Licensed + Insured Wedding Professionals

When you're planning your Nashville wedding, where do we turn to find wedding vendors (besides Nashville Bride Guide)? Most likely it's off of a recommendation or we Google. But how do you know if a wedding professional is actually reliable, licensed, insured and experienced? You could read through all of these Googled vendors' bios to see how long they've been in business, email them to ask if they are licensed and insured and also look on Wedding Wire to see if they've received good reviews on past weddings. This is a LOT of work that will take a LOT of time. But we have good news – there's TWESA

What is TWESA? TWESA is the Tennessee Wedding and Event Specialists Association – a group of Nashville area wedding professionals that meet once a month to network and build their businesses. TWESA also provides a list of all of these wedding professionals on their website for brides. The best news is that in order for a vendor to be involved in TWESA, they need to be a legit licensed and insured business. And another requirement to be a TWESA member is you have to be in business for 2 years. A recommendation letter from another TWESA member and a review from a customer is needed to be a member. So after all of these requirements, you know that TWESA members are some of the best in the business! 

In the TWESA vendor listings, each and every vendor is broken down by category. Looking for a florist? Check out the florist tab! How about a caterer? TWESA can direct you here, too! It's one of the only lists of its kind and it's such a huge asset for planning your wedding in Nashville!
