The Gallery
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
The Gallery in Chattanooga, TN was a beautiful place for a medium sized wedding ceremony. They have a bottom floor that features hanging art and statutes (they'll clean up the floor area, of course), a great sound system for your music (and a piano that you can borrow if you have a player!!), and also an upper floor for more people/party and/or a place to get ready for the bride and/or groom! If you have a VERY small wedding, maybe 20 or 30 people max, you could have the ceremony on their rooftop balcony, which is absolutely gorgeous and already decorated with plants, etc! The people there were absolutely great and treated us wonderfully! They even brought me a glass of white wine when I was getting nervous before the ceremony! :) The space is beautiful and unique and perfect for a lovely, simple little wedding like ours, although you could also go all out and decorate the place and I think it would look amazing, too! You can see pictures of the space at www.redbankgallery.com. Good luck in planning!

Doctor's Building Coffee Shop
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
This is actually a very small (but yummy) restaurant on McCallie avenue (at The Doctor's Building) in Chattanooga. We know the owner well, so I don't know if she would do this for just anyone, but you should ask if you like really good cake!! She makes her cakes from scratch at her home and then brings them into the shop everyday, so you can go there and try some before you decide. It won't be a traditional wedding cake, but I promise you your guests will like it more!! And if you are more tradional, you could have a "wedding" cake in addition to a couple of these for extra deserts. :) The price is really good too, and the taste is unbelievable! Her specialties are Chocolate cake with chocolate icing, chocolate cake with cream cheese icing, and yellow cake with caramel icing - they are all wonderful!!

Greyfriar's Coffee & Tea
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Ok, call me crazy, but I love good coffee and so does my (now) husband and so do my friends! So it was really important to us to have good coffee with our amazing cakes and desserts (from The Coffee Shop at The Doctor's Building)! Well, Greyfriar's in Chattanooga has some GREAT coffee, and they will make it, package it up, and either let you pick it up or deliver it at good prices (see www.rarecoffee.com). I really recommend the Guatamalan if you like good, strong coffee, but you can always go there and try some and see what you like. :) I know not everyone will care about having something better than Folger's at their reception, but if you love coffee, I recommend Greyfriar's for your reception, hands down!!

The English Rose
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
This is more of a bridesmaid's luncheon place than a "bachelorette party" place, but it is wonderful for that purpose - and in addition to partying with your girls, you probably also want some quality time with them on the day of or day before the wedding, so I think this is perfect! They have all sorts of tea and different meal options (it's all good) and lovely service. It's a delightful, quiet place, perfect for relaxing, chatting, drinking tea, and eating sandwiches! They also have more traditional "British" lunches available, so you can ask about those as well. Great atmosphere, great people, great place, and you'll have a great time!

Joy's Flowers
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Joy's Flowers, on McCallie avenue, does very pretty, lovely flowers just as you want them. We didn't have many flowers, as our site was already decorated quite a bit (an art gallery), but I am confident that they would do a great job on a bigger order as well! A friend of mine even went there last minute after the flowers she had ordered from somewhere else had gotten ruined, and they did a great job with absolutely no time! Of course, I recommend give them some time to do exactly what you want, but the point is, you can count on them!! The service is very good and professional, as well, and they really listen to you and try to understand what you want so that it will be perfect!
