Pigeon Forge cabin rentals are absolutely packed during Valentine’s Day weekend. Couples come from all over the United States to visit the beautiful and romantic scenery that the Smoky Mountains provide to cabins in Pigeon Forge. Who would blame them? The area not only boasts the most visited National Park in the country, it also has lots of romantic activities that can be used for the perfect date. A big activity for couples visiting Pigeon Forge on Valentine’s weekend is….you guessed it…getting married at one of our Pigeon Forge wedding chapels on Valentine’s day.
There are quite a few wedding chapels in the Pigeon Forge area. Well that’s an understatement. There are lots of wedding chapels here. 30 wedding chapels between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge was the last number we heard. Gatlinburg has actually been called the “wedding capital of the South” before although we’re not really sure who gave them that title.
Valentine’s weekend is one of our most popular weekends for weddings in Pigeon Forge. In fact, the month of February is said to be just as busy as the month of June when it comes to the number of weddings being conducted in the area.
Last year there were over 10,000 weddings in Sevier County where Pigeon Forge is located.
The beautiful views aren’t the only reason why people choose to get married in Pigeon Forge. It’s also fairly easy to get married here. Couples can obtain a marriage license on any day except Sunday. If they get the license in the morning they can get married in the afternoon. This makes it easy for many people who are eloping or renewing their vows that just want a quick planning process.
Couples also enjoy the easy access to a honeymoon. When you get married at a wedding chapel in Pigeon Forge, you can stay at a cabin right up the mountain and enjoy the rest of the week in a Smoky Mountains paradise. Seclusion when you need it, and lots to do when you want it, make the perfect combination for a great honeymoon destination.
Couples don’t have to have a blood test to get married ( as required in some states.) They must be at least 18 years old though. A marriage license for a Tennessee resident is $98.50 ($60 can be waived with marriage counseling), and for out-of-state visitors the cost is $38.50.
