If you're getting married in Music City, you'll definitely want to show your guests a good time and help them get a good feel for the city. Here are a few of our favorite Nashville-themed wedding ideas to incorporate into your celebration.

Wedding Invitation Poster (above): Set the tone for your Music City nuptials with a poster-style invitation created by Nashville's legendary letterpress printers Hatch Show Print.

Welcome Bag: Welcome your guests to Music City with a goody bag stocked with drinks, a vintage postcard, locally made treats, and a miniature bottle of Jack Daniel's (natch!).

Personalized Guide to Nashville: A great way to personalize your celebration? Create a custom guide to the city, complete with a list of you and your groom's favorite places to eat, shop, and sightsee. Tuck the guide into guests' welcome baskets so they'll have it once they arrive.

Jack Daniel's Signature Cocktail: Pay homage to the state's beloved whiskey with a cocktail mixed with Jack Daniel's. This libation is a honey Mint Julep garnished with a wooden honey dipper.

Locally Made Favors: Offer your guests an array of made-in-Tennessee treats like Moon Pies and Goo Goo Clusters as a sweet parting gift.

Groom's Cake: If your groom loves to play guitar, then surprise him with a groom's cake inspired by the instrument he plays. This incredibly realistic confection by Cup a Dee Cakes is a scale model of a Gibson banjo.
