‘Tis the season of holidays, from Christmas, New Year’s, and Valentine’s Day. With gifts being exchanged, fireworks going off, and romantic dinners, many proposals and engagements are happening.

And if you’re in that boat, CONGRATULATIONS!! We are so excited to congratulate you on your upcoming wedding.

Now, it’s time to start planning and working on finding just the right spot for your special day. I know, I know, once you start looking and it can quickly become overwhelming.

Wouldn’t it be great if that long and stressful planning season between “he liked it so he put a ring on it” and “I do” could be, well, not stressful? Or what if instead of an entire season, it was a week?

Well, we’ve got great news for you! Here’s how you can elope to Gatlinburg TN in just one week!

How to Elope in Just One Week


Find a venue for the wedding that has great, all-inclusive packages, and includes a wedding coordinator.

You say that will take longer than a week? Not if you know where to look. Most people think “Spur of the moment wedding? Vegas!” But maybe you should think “Smoky Mountains”. The Smoky Mountains are within a day’s drive of half of the United States. That means that not only can you get there in a reasonable amount of time, you can even plan to get there this week!
Plus with all-inclusive packages, your planning can officially be done. Flowers, cake, music, food and more are taken care of with your input.

Grab your something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and the sixpence for your shoe.

The online shopping world makes it easier than ever to get a white dress and a good looking suit on short notice. Pull out an antique handkerchief, use your dress, get a blue garter, borrow some earrings from a friend, and find a sixpence (or order one) and you’re pretty much set to go.

Call off work and pack your bags.

Put some of your well-earned vacation time to good use. Not only can you get married, you can stay in the Smokies for a few days and honeymoon as well. Don’t forget your hiking clothes and shoes and your adventure spirit. The Smokies are a great place to get out and explore.

Get going!

The best thing about eloping in a week is that you get to enjoy the thrill of running towards each other to the altar.

And we could just not be more happy for you!

You may think this sounds unrealistic but we assure you, that if you decide to get elope in a week, we would be so honored to be a part of your special day and make it happen just that fast.
