At the end of the aisle, through the chairs filled with teary-eyed, smiling family members and in front of the expansive windows framing miles of rolling mountain peaks, stands the love of your life, partner, and best friend. The flowers decorating the inside of your Smoky Mountain cabin accentuate the beauty of this special occasion. Slowly stride to the altar in the dreamy light of dusk pouring in through the expansive windows of your large cabin lodge before taking your vows in front of the most important people in both your lives.
If a lavish affair with hundreds of guests, months of preparation, and thousands of dollars spent isn’t your idea of a memorable wedding day, a Gatlinburg cabin wedding may be the perfect fit. Hosted in the privacy of your own cozy cabin in the Smoky Mountains, your wedding day will be just what you want it: filled with love, family, and no stress. Cabins for YOU can even help point you in the right direction for flowers, catering, photography, food, and more! Our experienced Vacation Planners are Smoky Mountain experts and always ready to help!
A Wedding that Won’t Break the Bank
Weddings are expensive. From flowers, catered wedding rehearsals, suits, and bridesmaids’ dresses to the wedding dress, photography, venue, and honeymoon, weddings are a financial strain on many couples. But you don’t want your special day to be tainted by stress of money spent or money you’ll have to pay back when you get back from the honeymoon. A Gatlinburg cabin wedding can alleviate that.
Save money on hotels for the wedding party by splitting the cost of a large-group lodge that has way more amenities (and space to hang out together) than a hotel. You can do your own cooking for the rehearsal dinner in your cabin’s fully equipped kitchen or splurge on a catered dinner by Chef Jeremy at Savory Solutions because you saved on the hotel. Guests will have their own bedrooms while getting to play games, eat, and relax together in shared spaces.
And don’t think that saving means sacrificing. Intimate cabin weddings can also be beautiful and memorable. Local florists can create floral arrangements to fit the day, and a gorgeous mountain backdrop just can’t be beat.
An All-in-One Wedding Venue
The biggest perk of a cabin wedding in the Smokies is the all-encompassing versatility of your cabin to serve as the lodging, the ceremony site, and the reception venue, all in one easy, hassle-free location. Skip trying to help family and friends navigate from one location to the next between the ceremony and reception by hosting both in one convenient, elegant cabin. Pre-ceremony primping with the bridesmaids, drinking and hanging out with the groomsmen, and mingling of family members effortlessly occurs as guests awake from their cozy beds. Meet in the large kitchen and dining room for a bridal breakfast before separating the bridal parties to get ready for the ceremony. The whole day can be carried out without coordinating carpools, specific locations off-site, and travel time thanks to your all-in-one Smoky Mountain cabin venue!
A Wedding Weekend
Spend quality time with family and friends while exploring Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge during your stay over the weekend and before the big day. Easily plan meals and outings together while lounging in the homey living room. Group trips into the mountain cities are a fun, exciting way to bond with family and friends during this momentous time in your lives. Whiz along rollercoasters in Dollywood with the help of their group discounts, venture through the Haunted Mansion to quickly find out who are the brave and who are the chickens of the family, or tour the Smoky Mountain Winery and enjoy free tastings of their award-winning wines while you toast to new adventures together as a couple and family.
The family has the perfect opportunity to take pictures together in the area’s most popular scenic valley drive around the 11-mile loop of Cades Cove. Park the cars near the Cades Cove Outpost and use the setting of the Smoky Mountains as your backdrop. Gather the little ones in front of the old mountain town churches for dreamy, rustic photos you will cherish for years. Take advantage of having the whole family together during this special time by snapping group photos near fields of horses and below stretches of blue Tennessee skies.
It’s more than wedding day when you plan a Gatlinburg cabin wedding – it’s an entire wedding weekend of fun! What better way to start your new life as a couple than exploring, drinking, relaxing, and playing with family and friends you love most?!
