Planning Your Dream wedding is Easy with Our Free Wedding Guide
Need some help to start the wedding planning process or to wrap things up? Experience Jackson is here to help! We have created the ultimate guide that every Jackson bride must use to plan her wedding. In the guide, we’ll help you discover venues, book your hotel room block, provide your out-of-town guests with activities to do, and give your hotel guests welcome kits.
Select a Hotel
Instead of calling multiple hotels to see if they can accommodate your wedding block, fill out the one Wedding Room Block Interest form and qualified hotel properties will contact you to make further arrangements. – Hotel arrangements should be made 6 to 9 months before your wedding date.
