This business was born from the idea that the perfect wedding doesn't require a year of planning and a long guest list. At Why Wait Weddings in Franklin, Tennessee, we provide a quaint space to have a simple legal ceremony or vow renewal.

We specialize in elopements and micro weddings and typically have availability on short notice to accommodate those who do not wish to wait.

At our dedicated space, we offer two packages: One is a simple legal ceremony, and the other includes photography from our partner Dahlia Orchid Photography.

We also offer on-site officiant services if you are planning a more traditional wedding! We can provide support for a rehearsal and travel to your venue to officiate and sign your license. Note: A travel fee may be required for distances over 50 miles.

Please reach out to discuss options for your special moment!

Why Wait Weddings made it easy!!

We were able to "make it official" in Nashville so our destination wedding was hassle free and we didn't need to be stressed about getting a marriage license in a foreign country.

Hi! My name is Emily and I am the Owner of Why Wait Weddings!

In the summer of 2022, I attended an elopement ceremony for one of my good friends. I loved being a part of that beautiful moment so much, that I wanted to provide that experience for couples in Nashville!

The wedding industry is known for being expensive and can be booked out way in advance. I'm committed to being an affordable option to support couples who are ready to make the leap!

While I may be newer on the officiant scene, I am not new to the wedding industry! I spent a few years after college as a wedding DJ!
