Whether you’re coming from Knoxville, farther afield, or just this neck of the woods, there are plenty of good reasons to have your wedding amongst all the brilliant foliage of a Smoky Mountain autumn. Newcomers to the region may worry, though – if they don’t know who to go to, how are they going to get the very best of the Smokies on their wedding day? That’s where a wedding planner comes in, someone who knows the venues and the vendors. Read on to find out what wedding planning services are available to you in Blount County!

Foothills Bridal

Located in Maryville, the full-service outfit Foothills Bridal offers everything from bridal shows (the next one is in February, 2019) that showcase bridal fashion and offer catering samples, to their magazine, Foothills Bridal, and they also maintain a directory of local vendors, like florists, on their website. That’s not all, though: Their wedding planners are available for small or large weddings, and they’ll both visit the site in advance and handle necessary details the day of, whether it’s pinning boutonnières, directing guests, or tearing things down after the show is over.

Gather & Blume

If you’re looking for an event planner who puts flowers front and center, RH Wilhoite’s Gather & Blüme is right up your alley. This master gardener in Maryville is also an experienced event planner, and his business focuses on handling all the details of your event, from start to finish, (or soup to nuts!) for you. Whether you’re looking for a planner for your entire wedding or someone to take charge of a special rehearsal dinner, Gather & Blüme is sure to keep everything arranged harmoniously.

Colonial Estate Weddings & Events

Wedding packages to suit different sizes and budgets are available from Colonial Estate Weddings and Events, which also boasts a particularly attractive piece of property for hosting weddings. Brides, grooms, and parents of both who are looking for one-stop shopping with an incredible view of the mountains would do well to take a look at Colonial Estate and the different wedding sites and services they offer.

Southern Exposure Events

Kim and Sherry at Southern Exposure Events in Rockford could be just the wedding planning team you’re looking for. They provide full-service wedding planning and coordination, from working with vendors to create custom-made menus for each wedding, to making sure all rented equipment is packed and returned to vendors on time after the wedding has ended. They often work with the Cove Mountain Ranch in Sevierville, a bucolic location for saying your “I do’s.”
