And when combined with the panoramic views that our large Pigeon Forge cabin rentals offer, there is no denying the unbeatable beauty that an in-cabin wedding offers.

Whether you and your loved one choose to set up your ceremony on your cabin’s private deck, in the living room in front of the large windows, or just outside with the large cabin in the background, we are sure that you will not be disappointed in the breathtaking views and scenic backdrop that an in-cabin wedding will give to big days and your wedding photos.

Flexible Guest List

If you have ever helped one of your friends plan a wedding before, then you know the amount of stress that can accumulate around narrowing down the guest list. Not only do you have to comb through both of you and your future spouse’s friends and families to decide who you want to attend the wedding, but you also have to calculate the cost per person in terms of catering and venue rentals. For example, you may want a total of 50 people with you to celebrate your big day, but your budget may not be able to work with that in terms of the price per plate for the reception dinner or rental chairs for the ceremony.

However, by planning a Smoky Mountain wedding in a Pigeon Forge cabin, couples can wave goodbye to much of that guest list stress. Not only do they not have to worry about paying per person for the venue space, but they can also be more creative with the catering plans to reduce that cost as well.

Unlike other Smoky Mountain wedding venues, there is no set list of vendors or caterers that couples have to use when planning their big day inside one of our large Pigeon Forge cabin rentals.

Weddings can be stressful, there is no denying that fact. Between figuring out the logistics of your guests, food, music, venue, and anything else related to your big day, it can be a big overwhelming. However, one of the many reasons we love in-cabin weddings in the Smoky Mountains is that they are known to be a lot more casual of a wedding setting. We see couples often trade-in fancy ballroom dresses and tuxedos for more laid-back style designs and khaki pants.

Therefore, if you are looking for a wedding option that takes less pressure off your wedding and adds more focus on celebrating the love you and your future spouse have for one another, we highly suggest planning a Smoky Mountain wedding in a Pigeon Forge cabin. Besides, it is not the center pieces on the tables that will carry you through a lifetime, it is the bond between you and your spouse and the love you two share that will.
