MEMORABLE CABIN WEDDINGS
An Intimate Affair
Some simply want only the most important people in their lives present for their wedding – a couple family members and friends. Choose one of our mid-size cabins with 3 to 5 bedrooms that often have the extra space to sleep more guests on sleeper sofas and bunkbeds for little ones like the flower girl and the ring bearer. These cabins are a wedding location and vacation in one for you and the ceremony attendees, packed with amenities like outdoor hot tubs, pools, and game rooms! Host the ceremony in your cabin for a budget-friendly venue and the easiest travel to the reception, ever! You can also rent a 1 or 2-bedroom cabin and have a ceremony just for the two of you!
A Cabin Wedding for the Whole Family
Have about 40 to 50 guests in attendance including the wedding party? Cabins for YOU offers majestic, rustic large group cabins with mountain, valley, and wooded views! Whether your ceremony is with an area venue or on location in the cabin, these large cabins are a perfect way to save money on expensive hotels for your destination wedding. It is also a big plus to have everyone staying together for this special time! Your wedding guests will love playing pool in the game room or swimming in the private indoor pool offered in many of our cabins before they head to their rooms to get ready for the ceremony.
Once again, you can easily hire one of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg’s wedding service companies to send an ordained minister and catering company to host the ceremony and reception all in one easy location: your luxurious cabin! Large cabins are also a perfect way for guests to carpool to the ceremony from one convenient location, instead of multiple hotels! Wedding attendees will love the proximity of their cabin to venues like The Preacher’s House and Enchanted Valley Barn. Splitting the cost of these large cabins is easy, too; simply have guests RSVP with accommodation prices instead of reserving hotel rooms.
The happy couple will inevitably want their privacy for their wedding night, but why not stay in the exquisite beauty of the Smoky Mountains for your honeymoon, too? Save money on expensive airfare to another destination when you have the one of the country’s most beautiful national parks right here. Cabins for YOU offers plenty of romantic 1-bedroom cabins ideal for 2 with a wide range of views, amenities, and seclusion (wink, wink).
