I receive tons of inquiries from brides asking for tours of Riverwood Mansion for their Nashville wedding and with the statement following our conversation "but I don't have a ring yet". I think it is really smart of prospective brides to start planning early for open dates at venues. Saturdays tend to get booked so fast that looking for a great venue before your groom even pops the question can give you a leg up on the others looking at those same dates.
So just a reminder even if he hasn't asked yet feel free to go ahead and start researching especially if you are looking for a Saturday in summer or fall. Those dates go fast!!
