When it comes to weddings, there are some superstitions and omens both good and bad, that have come down with practice over the years. Here at Bluff Mountain Inn, we believe that your wedding should be about you and that means that you can do away with some of the wedding-related superstitions when it comes to yours. You can also tweak some of them if you wish. Here’s a list of 3 wedding superstitions that you can do away with when it comes to your wedding.


  • You Can’t See Each Other Before the Wedding

In the distant past, couples weren’t allowed to see each other until the last minute so that the groom didn’t have a chance to change his mind. Weird right? This somehow led to the superstition of it being bad luck for the groom to see his bride before the ceremony on the wedding day. Some couples flaunt this rule because a first look photoshoot is a great addition to the wedding album and all the emotions involved can be displayed in private first. This could help calm your nerves before your wedding. If you ask us our answer would be, do what makes you happy!

  • You’re Doomed If You Drop the Ring

According to this superstition, whoever dropped the ring during the ceremony would die. Dramatic right? We don’t think anybody is doomed if they’re nervous and drop the rings. All that would happen would be a little stress required to find and pick them back up. That being said, it would probably be best to be careful when handling the rings to your ring bearer if they are quite young. The bands should be tied tightly and the ring pillow should get to him just before he walks down the aisle.

  • You Must Carry the Bride Over the Threshold

The ancient Romans believed that this one protected the bride from evil spirits. We believe that you can do this one for fun when you come back from your honeymoon or better still, walk-in hand-in-hand to celebrate your new life together.

When it comes to weddings, décor is one of the ways that you as a couple can showcase the beauty that is your love story. As one of the top wedding locations in Tennessee, we at Bluff Mountain Inn know the importance that your décor has where your wedding is concerned and often advise our potential couple to pay attention to it. One thing we’ve also noticed is that when you introduce sentimentalism and personalization into your wedding décor, the result is a great event that you and your guests will enjoy and not soon forget. This is because they have a way of turning your wedding from ordinary to romantic and unique. So, how do you do this? The following few tips could help.



  • Your Table Linens

Table linens are a great opportunity for a couple who is trying to personalize their wedding décor. One of the ways to do this is to have something like your favorite quote as a couple, printed on one side of it. You could also have the quotes printed on the top of the linens or put them on the table runners instead.

  • A Photo Arrangement

You can arrange wedding photos of your parents or other couples who are special to you in a special place as part of your wedding décor. It is a great way to personalize your décor and also celebrate their union. Quite sentimental if you ask us.

  • Your Wedding Backdrops

This another great use for your wedding quotes. You could print out and use your favorite quote as your wedding ceremony backdrop or your sweetheart table backdrop. Remember that the quote has to be meaningful and relevant to your relationship and love story. This is a great way to turn your wedding décor personal and unique.

When most people hear black and white, they think boring. But it doesn’t necessarily have to be so. Timeless weddings are one of the best kinds of weddings that you can have and incorporating white and black into your wedding’s color scheme is a great way to make it timeless. Now picture a timeless wedding in the beauty of our Great Smoky Mountains location? Interested? Then let us at Bluff Mountain Inn share a few ideas with you on how to incorporate a black and white color scheme into your Tennessee wedding.



  • Your Accessories

They don’t all have to be either black or white, but a pair of black crystal earrings or a black clutch purse with black and white crystals are sure to look timeless and classy. If you look into any magazine that features classics from the 40s, you’ll be sure to see that with an ensemble like this, you’ll be channeling your inner Hollywood diva!

  • Your Flowers

A simple white flower-based bouquet wrapped in black can work perfectly here. If you want the dark to feature in your actual bouquet, go for white anemones. They have a dark center that is quite close to black and will make for a gorgeous and elegant look in your bouquet.

  • Your Wedding Dresses

Designers are coming up with lots of gorgeous black wedding dresses so you can find one that suits you. If you, however, want to stick to the regular white wedding gown, your bridesmaids can represent the black at your wedding in their dresses. They might be quite happy to do so. For one thing, black dresses are universally flattering and they are easy to find in all fabrics, styles, and lengths. This will also make it easy to coordinate the dresses and your bridesmaids have the added advantage of being able to wear the dresses to another event if they so wish.

The first tip when it comes to planning your wedding is that you should be aware that it is not going to be easy. But that does not also mean that it will be chaotic and stressful. Taking steps like hiring a good wedding planner and delegating can go a long way towards easing your stress, however. The following tips from us here at Bluff Mountain Inn can also help when it comes to the success of your Tennessee wedding.



  • Your Wedding Cake

When it comes to your wedding cake, the taste is more important than the looks. If your cake is a work of art but tastes mediocre, it will not be satisfying at all. A simple cake, on the other hand, is sure to bring joy to your guest’s face when the taste is great! When searching for a chef for your wedding cake, first focus on finding someone who bakes deliciously. The design can come afterward.

  • Your Flower Arrangements

When planning the flower arrangements and your bouquet, take your wedding venue into account. It will help make sure that your wedding looks great in the environment plus local and seasonal flowers are cheaper to procure. You should first talk to your florist about a style before going to the type of flower.

  • Your Invitations

Once your invitations get to press, any mistake you have to change would mean starting the entire process over again. To avoid this, double-check all the texts before they go to press and also remember to order your thank-you notes alongside too.

  • Enjoy Your Engagement First

If you jump right into the planning of your wedding the first day after your engagement, you won’t have time to enjoy being engaged. Take a couple of days or weeks depending on how much time you have to enjoy yourself and celebrate with your family and friends. You can then come back to the planning and discussion of your wedding plans afterward.

Often, couples spend so much time planning the bigger things when it comes to their wedding day that they leave out some vital smaller things. These vital things, although small, can often be the difference between an enjoyable wedding and a boring one. Who can blame them though? A wedding can be quite tasking to plan! Bluff Mountain Inn is more than just an amazing location for your wedding in Sevierville, Tennessee, we also care about your happiness and the overall success of the event. So, while you worry about the bigger things, here are some little things that you should not also forget when it comes to your wedding.



  • A Busy Bag for Kids

This is especially important if you are having a kid-friendly wedding. The bags should contain treats, toys, and activity bags. They’ll keep the kids occupied so their parents can enjoy your wedding and party with you.

  • Dancing Shoes

You can solve the problem of guests not dancing because of hurting feet with this one. A thong that your guests can change into would be a great relief and a motivation to throw in some moves on the dancefloor.

  • Handkerchiefs

Handkerchiefs can be useful for sweat and tears at your beautiful wedding. They can also double as favors for your guests to go home with.

  • Provide Entertainment

Regular wedding entertainment like music, drinks, and food aren’t what we’re talking about here. We mean extras, for example, a bouncing castle or a photo booth. They’ll add more fun to your event.

  • Umbrellas

You can never go wrong with umbrellas at your wedding. Whether as a cover from the rain, a shade from the sun or just a wedding prop, providing umbrellas at your wedding will help keep your guests comfortable and happy.

All of the ideas mentioned above can help keep you and your guests happy and comfortable at your wedding. Our venue here at Bluff Mountain Inn will also go a long way towards achieving that too. What are you waiting for? Give us a call today!
