5 Steps to Planning a Gatlinburg Cabin Wedding That Brides Will Love

At Auntie Belham’s Cabin Rentals, we love in-cabin weddings. Not only do these intimate ceremonies help keep the focus on the bride and groom, but they are also a great first step in creating long-lasting memories with your new family.

There are a few steps that we think all couples should take to make sure that their Gatlinburg cabin wedding is perfect from start to finish.

1. Pick the Best Gatlinburg Cabin for Your Ceremony

This is your big day, so it is important to pick a cabin you are in love with. Take a look at all of our Gatlinburg cabin rentals and choose the best one for you.

Cabin weddings are some of the most customizable weddings the area has to offer, and they are also some of the most affordable. At a cabin, you can choose how much to decorate, and not worry about running over your reservation time for your ceremony.

Gatlinburg cabin weddings also allow couples and families to combine the cost of their wedding venue with their lodging cost to cut down on the overall expenses of their big day. Instead of having to pay both for a venue and a place to stay, you and your loved ones can get a jumpstart on creating new family memories by treating your destination wedding like your first vacation together. Many couples choose a larger cabin that can accommodate the entire group, but some do prefer a more intimate cabin for the ceremony.

2. Keep It Simple

One of the main reasons couples choose to celebrate their big day with a cabin wedding in Smoky Mountain wedding in a large group cabin in Pigeon ForgeGatlinburg is that they prefer to keep their plans simple. Weddings do not always call for a large chapel or a horse-drawn carriage. Instead, why not keep the focus of your big day on the love that you and your future spouse share, and enjoy the simplicity of a Gatlinburg cabin wedding?

Some people prefer to have a more elaborate ceremony, but here are a few questions to ask – Do you want to hire a caterer? Do you think you can prepare all of the food yourself? Do you want to decorate the cabin with added novelties, or is the scenic backdrop of the Smoky Mountains enough for you?

Cabin weddings give couples full control over how they want their ceremony to look. It just comes down to what matters to you the most in terms of time and budget.

3. Designate A Go-To Person

Now matter how hard you try to not let them, things will eventually become a little busy during your wedding day. You will want to designate a go-to person that guests and vendors can go to if they have any questions.

Besides, the last thing you want to deal with when you are trying to put on your dress or touch up your makeup is someone asking where to put extra bags of ice. You will have enough on your mind and you will want to really enjoy the day. Just make sure there’s a designated person to help out when you need it!

4. Remember to Include a Map/Directions

If you plan on inviting guests to your wedding who may not be staying in the cabin with you, we suggest making sure that you send out directions or a map to your guests before the big day. This will make sure that everyone you want to share your special day with will be in attendance, and you won’t have to worry about anyone getting lost or turned around on their way to the cabin.
