If you’re planning a Pigeon Forge wedding, congratulations! You’ve selected one of the most beautiful locations in the country for your special day. Planning an important event like this is exciting, but can also be stressful at times. So, we’ve put together a list of must-know tips to help you make the process as seamless and enjoyable as possible!

1. Stick to Your Budget

When it comes to planning a wedding, one of the most frustrating things is going over budget. To avoid this, you first have to sit down with your significant other and figure out how much the two of you have to spend. Once you’ve established this, you can move on to delegate certain amounts to different things. If you really want to splurge on experiences like an extra night on your honeymoon in a romantic 1 bedroom cabin, you can always move money around within your set budget to make it work! All you have to do is spend a little less on things your guests probably don’t care that much about anyway, like extravagant tablecloths and wedding favors.

2. Create a Checklist and Calendar

There’s a lot of work that goes into planning a wedding. It can be extremely stressful to try and remember everything that has to get done. So, give your mind a break and create a checklist for all the tasks you have to do. You’ll feel a sense of accomplishment when you cross items off of your list. You will also find these responsibilities to be a lot more manageable if you space them out over time and set deadlines. This way, the workload won’t be so overwhelming and you’ll always get things done on time!

3. Pick a Gorgeous Venue

There are so many benefits of having a Pigeon Forge wedding, and the scenic venue options are just one! Cabin weddings have become increasingly popular because of the breathtaking views and ample space for guests. Imagine saying your vows on the deck of a beautiful cabin, overlooking the Smoky Mountains! However, if you had something a little different in mind, our clubhouse is also available for weddings and receptions. You can even hold your ceremony on the picturesque grounds of the resort. Just remember to pick the venue that speaks to you and you can’t go wrong!

4. Hire a Professional Photographer
