Whether you are a die hard greenie or a light green newbie you may be concerned enough to want some eco-conscious elements in your wedding. Gatlinburg and surrounding areas may have just what you need. Wedding chapels galore, natural settings in the mountains and National park, every vendor imaginable is local and ready to help you including wedding planners, florists, photographers, cake makers, even formal wear rentals. Yes, that’s right you can rent tuxes and wedding gowns…that’s something you don’t see too often, being able to rent a gown. Plus if you have bridesmaids, flower girls or any other attendants they can also rent their attire instead of spending a fortune on something they’ll probably never wear again. Plus with the Gatlinburg Goes Green program for local businesses, chances are you’ll find several wedding vendors that have implemented the green initiatives that are part of the program.
