Cheap Gatlinburg wedding chapels are not that easy to find as this is serious wedding country. Gatlinburg is second only to Las Vegas for the number of weddings per year in the United States, it is set at the entrance to The Great Smoky Mountains National Park and has the title of Wedding Capital of the South, plus it does big business renewing vows.
According to Gatlinburg tourism there are over 20 unique wedding chapels and having just spent a long time searching through each of their very romantic websites for the cheapest it's pretty hard to find out exactly what they charge.
Every wedding chapel has their own wedding packages these start with just the two of you and a minister from $99 going up to thousands. They stipulate how many guests you can have at each level of ceremony, include photography and some even include the bride's hair and makeup. The more they include, the higher the price, so to compare prices is very hard as they don't break it down to all of the individual elements.
A couple of chapels have reduced their rates due to the "tough economic times" but these discounts are applying to weddings during the week not including Friday. However, if you or your partner are in the military there are discounts available for you, some of them up to 50%
To get married in Gatlinburg you will need a Tennessee marriage licence, you both need to be over 18 and you will need a minister. Which is all you need for the cheapest wedding, book your minister and find a great outdoors location, it could be by a waterfall or with the mountains as your backdrop but it will all be your choice. This way you are not pushed into a wedding package available in the not cheap gatlinburg wedding chapels.
