KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Couples can now tie the knot and close the curtain at the same time by getting married on-stage at the Tennessee Theatre.
Officials announced new packages couples can buy for their special day. They are designed for small, simple and low-key events, according to a release from the theatre. They are available for $500, $1,500 and $3,000. Wedding ceremonies are offered on-stage or in the Grand Lobby in every package.
“The Tennessee Theatre is able to offer these mini wedding packages to help us earn income when we’re unable to have touring shows in the building," Becky Hancock said, the theatre's executive director. "So it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for you to have a very special day on the stage of Tennessee Theatre."
The "Take the Plunge" package allows for up to 24 participants and attendees, such as a wedding party, witnesses or photographers. It also allows the couple to play music of their choice over the speaker system. They will also be able to put a custom message on the lighted Theatre Marquee.
People can also add on a mini wedding cake to-go, decorated with the theatre blade sign, the couple's first name and the wedding date. They can also get a performance on the Wurlitzer Organ before or after the ceremony.
Couples who want to book the theatre for their special day can submit an inquiry on the theatre's website. Staff will then contact them to confirm the date and collect payment. They will also work with the couple to confirm the details of their special day.
