Check out our fun, new venue: The Simmons Bank Ag Center

For couples looking for a more intimate, affordable ceremony, look no further than Discovery Park of America’s micro-wedding and elopement packages. Our elopement option is perfect for a spontaneous but beautiful wedding with few or no guests.

Because Discovery Park of America has such a large number of unique venues, we can help you create special wedding, rehearsal dinner and reception experiences unlike anything else in the world. From indoor spaces that convey a sense of luxury and sophistication to outdoor gardens with water features that create a feeling of a European wedding to a traditional chapel that allows you to give a nod to the past while celebrating the future with your loved one, no one will leave your wedding uninspired.

It’s also the perfect venue for your rehearsal dinner and reception. Not only is more convenient, it’s also more economical. If you book two wedding events (ceremony and reception) you’ll receive 10% off the total venue rate and book three events (rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception) and receive 15% off.

And with three new hotels right next door, your guests will be able to relax and enjoy your wedding without having to waste time traveling.

Frequently Asked Questions 


“Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! You helped us make our big day perfect! We love Discovery Park and we loved how our big day turned out! Thank you again!” –Nikki & Justin

 “Thank YOU so much! I know you put in hard work to make my day perfect and it was 100% evident. I had like TWENTY PEOPLE tell me it was the best wedding they had ever been to and I owe most of that to you. Thank you SO MUCH for giving me absolutely the best day imaginable.” -Paige Fehland Ritzie

 “The staff at DPA provided excellent customer service in our reception planning and in following through with our questions.  We visited with Lauren a total of three times over a nine-month period, and she exceeded my expectations at each encounter with her creativity and can-do attitude.  My favorite picture of my daughter’s wedding is the Daddy/Daughter/Dinosaur Dance!” –Bonnie

Discovery Park of America has always been my go to place for events.  I’ve had several events over the years and I couldn’t have been more pleased.  My daughter wanted to get married in a church and DPA even was accommodating to that.  She was married in the church and had the reception in Dinosaur Hall.  They are very good in dealing with outside vendors such as catering and entertainment.  If anyone asks me where the best place in West Tennessee is to host an event…I say, “Discovery Park!” –Virginia Grimes

“When I got engaged I immediately knew that I wanted to have my reception at Discovery Park. Little did I know that booking this venue would be the best decision I made throughout the entire wedding process. The entire staff at Discovery Park was kind, patient, and attentive with every question, request or worry that I had. Each time that I visited or called, the events staff made it a priority to assist me in anyway. Every time I take my students on a field trip to the park, visit for the day with family, or attend an event, I smile because this park now holds memories from the best day of my life. I would choose DPA again and again!” —Sydney Robbins
