Learn more about our ads. Southern brides: y'all better listen up! Our newest Nashville sponsor, DandyLion Events, is a special company who wants to help plan, coordinate and design your unique wedding. This alternative event planning company is a team of three Lionesses, who can assist you in photography, floral design, event design, and planning. Not sure if you need help planning? You just might! And, besides, DandyLion does things a little lot differently than your typical event planning company. In order to create original events that represent the couple, they encourage their clients to bring items from home, and to thrift and comparison-shop to keep their costs low. On top of that, how many other wedding planning companies would say this: "The focus should be on the experience, not the consumerism or materialism of the wedding industry." But there's another even greater reason as to why ALL Southern brides should hire DandyLion Events… DandyLion is also featured in our Offbeat Vendors guide! DandyLion believes in love for all, and are the only event planning company actively promoting their services for LGBT couples in Tennessee. "We are trying to fight the culture of social obligations and sexist, hetero-oriented and outdated traditions." Their goal is to be the gay wedding experts in Tennessee — this includes expansive vendor and venue research, communication, and relationships. Besides using gender-neutral wording on their site and in their contracts, they also put their money where their mouths are: they are all members of the Human Rights Campaign. BOOM! DandyLion Events rocks, or as you Southerners say it, "rawks y'all!" Vendors this cool get booked up fast, so hook up with these ladies today.

Reply Just asked @dandyLionevents on twitter, and they said: "it's from a company in the uk called hellbunny. if they're local it's sold at katy k's ranch dressing." 1 agrees Reply you're my hero. Reply I'm proud to say that my fiancÃ© and I are currently working with DandyLion Events for our wedding this coming October and we love it. Lindsey takes care of us, makes herself available, and gives a lot of attention to detail. I would gladly recommend them to anyone looking for a planner in our area. 2 agree Reply We're working with DandyLion for our wedding in April, and they have been WONDERFUL. It's important to us that everyone involved in our wedding believes in true love, in any of its forms. Also, we're in Atlanta, and even though Lindsey lives in Nashville, our planning process has gone extremely smoothly. 1 agrees Reply I have to admin, it's not very often you see a bride dressed in black…but she looks good Reply OMGOSH!
