Why a Mountain Destination Wedding might be right for you

Why a Mountain Destination Wedding might be right for you

We’re only a few weeks away from Christmas. It’s the time where a lot of couples become engaged and start looking for a mountain destination wedding venue. Well if that sounds like something that you might be looking for then Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains offer a great opportunity.

For years the Smokies have been known as a great place for couples to elope. Wedding chapels used to line the streets of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. These days more engaged couples are looking to have a larger event and invite family and friends to travel to the mountains and take advantage of the great location while attending a wedding celebration.

There are several places in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park that accommodate wedding parties and what better mountain destination wedding spot could you get than that? The park facilities are available to book through the National Park Service. If you’re looking for a gorgeous location for a wedding that might just be the ticket.

On the other hand, many couples would rather spend their time relaxing and enjoying the time with family and friends so they might choose an all-inclusive destination venue for their Smoky Mountain wedding. One where all the details are handled by wedding professionals including planning, decorating, catering, flowers, and photography. If that sounds more like the plan you’re looking for then Bluff Mountain Inn might be just the perfect location for your wedding plans.
