- Wedding: July 2020 - Gatlinburg, TN
Anyone who has gotten married in the smoky mountains or specifically at Spence Cabin- any advice you would give? We haven’t completely decided on our venue, we are still debating whether to do destination or local. We live in IL but have been considering the Smoky Mountains and Spence Cabin/Appalachian Clubhouse. The only thing is I’m wondering how much of a hassle will it be to plan it there while I’m out of state and also I work full time and go to school part time. From what I’ve read so far it seems that it would be all DIY, I also heard we have to bring our own mirrors and extra lighting for hair and makeup. I also heard there’s no cell phone signal in the park and to bring lots of bug spray. I also read that everyone must be out of the cabin/clubhouse by 8pm is that true? If so what did you do with your guests afterwards? That seems very early.
We were thinking of late June or early to mid July 2020- is that a terrible idea? Will it be too hot? The other thing is we are planning to have it be for just a weekend and I feel like it’s kind of a lot as far as travel goes for just a weekend.
I’m just so overwhelmed with trying to make a decision on everything.
