Why Wed in Natchez?

This is your day.  Don’t you deserve to spend it like royalty? In Natchez, fairy-tale weddings are redefined with fun, food and breathtaking scenery that will have both you and your guests talking for a very long time.

Nestled on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River, Natchez is exactly what you picture when you imagine a Southern wedding.  Ceremonies held in elegantly furnished mansions are commonplace here.  Outdoor receptions on the grounds of stately plantations near the river’s edge and buffets under the shade of well-tended gardens are customary, as the city has more than 30 mansions to choose from.  These venues are only part of the charm that lures brides and grooms to Natchez.  

In addition to its beautiful setting, Natchez also easily accommodates the wedding party and guests with its extensive selection of professionals to assist the bride with everything from the announcement party and rehearsal dinner to the ceremony, reception, and honeymoon. 

Although Natchez is popular among brides, its charm appeals to everyone.  Attendants and wedding guests can step back in time for the weekend and tour antebellum homes, take a “Pour Tour” of our local winery, distillery and brewery, peruse the downtown shops, or enjoy the local fare of everything from biscuits and bacon to haute cuisine while reconnecting with family and friends. 

Whether you are planning a fairy tale wedding, a family reunion, or simply looking for a weekend getaway, rest and relaxation await you in Natchez.  And when it is time for the bride and groom to commemorate their anniversary, they can reconnect with their families and attendants where they celebrated their nuptials.  A wedding in Natchez will not only be unique, it will be an experience to remember and revisit again and again.
