Why Do You Want a Walk-In Wedding Chapel in Gatlinburg, TN?
The first question to ask yourself is: Why do you want a walk-in wedding chapel in Gatlinburg? In basically all cases, it is better to reserve a date and time prior to visiting than to expect to be able to walk in and get married. Gatlinburg is the wedding capital of the South. There are around 20,000 weddings here each and every year. Availability can be very limited, especially during our peak times.
Even if you only reserve something a week or two in advance, your chances of finding something available will be much greater than waiting till the last minute. Do you want to get married in some of the most beautiful spots in the country?
If so, you need to reserve something as soon as you have solidified your plans to visit. For those who waited till the last minute, we may still be able to help. Give us a call at (865) 365-5025 and we’ll see if it’s possible to fit you on our schedule. Though, it can be rare as we book out many days throughout the year.
Why Do You Want a Chapel at All?
If you’re here in Gatlinburg, you are already in one of the most beautiful spots in the United States. Why do you want to have your wedding indoors? Outdoor weddings in this area offer a backdrop like nothing else. Mountain-view, creek-sides, private cabins, etc. are just a few places that we offer weddings at. With Elope to Gatlinburg’s various locations, walk-in wedding chapels in Gatlinburg are a thing of the past. No longer do you need to get married inside of a dimly lit and sterile chapel.

Can Elope to Gatlinburg Marry Me Today?
While the majority of our weddings are pre-planned, we can sometimes help at the last moment. Granted, we would never recommend waiting till the last minute to set something up. One other consideration is that for last-minute weddings, your options for many locations will be limited. For example, for weddings taking place inside of the National Park, we need at least 14 days prior notice to secure the permits. In that scenario, the only locations left to choose from would be the Mynatt Park location or our Private Creekside location. To make it simple…always book as soon as you have solidified your plans to get married in Gatlinburg.
If you are already in Gatlinburg and looking to get married today, give us a call at (865) 365-5025 and we can let you know if we can fit you on the schedule. Though, we often fully book up many days throughout the year.
