Depends how highbrow you wanna go! Our wedding was minimum hassle, pretty cheap to do (which was good, cos we're not monied folks) and all sorted via email, thanks to our Memphis friends...
* Guests stayed at what's now called 'The Artisan' on the corner of Union/McLean or at 'French Quarter Inn & Suites', both of which were reasonable, price-wise, and within walking distance of eating/drinking spots.
* We got spliced inside Sun Studios, but I dunno if they generally let people do that – you'd need to contact Nikki, the manager... Susie Hendrix married us, and we just hadta sort the license out at City Hall...
* Our wedding dinner wuz at the Bar-B-Que Shop on Madison, which has a nice side room, and they don't charge for it, but you pay a slightly higher than normal 'per plate' food rate.
* The reception was at the Buccaneer, which don't charge, either, but we did slip Buck Wilders (who DJed and provided his decks), Jeff Evans/Ron Franklin/Jack O some money'n'drinks – well, ya gotta!
'Course, if you're going more highbrow, then this is no help at all!
