Black-Owned Businesses To Support While Planning a Wedding

We know there is power in spending, and weddings are the perfect opportunity to be mindful with that spending power. We’ve seen first hand many of our brides conscious decisions of having a more eco-friendly sustainable wedding or supporting small/local businesses. We’ve gathered a list of BIPOC owned businesses and wedding vendors to support online or locally here in Nashville while wedding planning/shopping because we believe it’s important to be aware of the impact that your spending makes.

Available Online:

Bridal Ready to Wear:

Cushnie They also have traditional bridal, but ready to wear available on Net-A-Porter. We’re in love with this off shoulder pant outfit.

Tove We’re obsessed with Manon, Ceres, and Sabine.

Island Tribe Made to order, but only 2-3 month timeline. The Gili Fringe Dress is a favorite of ours. They’re also dedicated to sustainability and you can read their mission statement here.
