I get a lot of questions on how to plan your Smoky Mountain wedding on a budget and there are plenty of ways to save! Here are my top three ways to save when planning a Smoky Mountain or Pigeon Forge Wedding.
1. Use the National Park! The Smoky Mountains are beautiful, after all that's why you're getting married here right? Take advantage of the beautiful outdoor
s and choose your favorite spot in the Smokies! There are restrictions and you must get a permit
but it's much less expensive than a venue!
2. Now that you've saved on your venue, it's time for the food! There are plenty of great Pigeon Forge restaurants
that would be great for catering but if you're still looking to cut back your funds significantly try rallying the troops! Friends and family are happy to help out on this special day! Maybe a potluck barbecue reception is perfect for your outdoor Smoky Mountain theme!
3. Flowers. These can be pretty pricy alone much less when you hire a florist to do them for you. Try this bride's awesome tutorial
on how she made her own wedding bouquet.
