The mountains of East Tennessee welcomes more and more engaged couples each year, as brides and grooms are realizing the area is an ideal location for a destination wedding. With the 2014 wedding season just around the corner, Visit My Smokies has announced the top four reasons to have a Smoky Mountain wedding and honeymoon.
Couples searching for a spectacular destination wedding site can find many choices in the mountainous areas of Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Sevierville. Topping the list of reasons to have a Smoky Mountain wedding are the scenic mountain views and beautiful wedding locations. There are breathtaking ceremony sites dotted throughout the mountains for private and intimate affairs, while larger mountain top and cabin venues are also available for unforgettable locations wedding guests will be talking about for years.
“It’s not hard to see why the Smoky Mountains are considered one of the five premier destination wedding locations in the country,” said a spokesperson for Visit My Smokies. “With breathtaking scenic views and beautiful chapels, there is no better place to begin a new life together than in the mountains.”
According to VMS, destination weddings are a popular choice today so newly married couples can have a ceremony, reception and honeymoon in one area without traveling to multiple locations. A Smoky Mountain destination wedding is a good opportunity for families to vacation together, while the newly married couple can combine their honeymoon and wedding locations.
In addition to the beautiful scenery and opportunity to spend time with family and friends, couples deciding to get married in the Smokies can also save money with the low-cost marriage license fees. Depending on form of payment, out-of-town guests can spend as little as $38.50 for a marriage license.
Visit My Smokies is the premier travel resource for Smoky Mountain visitors. Engaged and newly married couples can find information about wedding sites and vendors, as well as Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg honeymoon cabin providers to create the ideal destination wedding start to finish.
