Posted by on June 08, 2017

Are there wedding bells in your near future? Are you about to tie the knot? Put a ring on that special someone?  You want your wedding to be something you remember and cherish for the rest of your life. Its going to be a day that you look back on when you’ve been married fifty years and you’re holding hands in a rocking chair.

One of the most important things you must consider when getting married is picking out the perfect place. Maybe you want an autumn wedding. Maybe you want the bright sun of summer shining down on you. If you’re planning a fall wedding, you can get married amongst the fantastic fall colors as the trees begin to turn red and yellow. If you prefer the summer, you’ll enjoy the warm weather of Gatlinburg.  That being said, you might want to bring parasols for your wedding guests! They’re functional, fun, and beautiful all rolled into one.

There are many historical inns where you can host your wedding, and then begin your honeymoon and life together.
