Hey girls!

I've planned my wedding in September in Gatlinburg, Tennessee! I've booked a chapel called Chapel in the Park, the outdoor center in particular, for that date. If anyboy has any reviews and/or suggestions for that area, I would appreciate it!

Thanks! Elizabeth

Thank you!

I know! I was there in 2007 and absolutely loved it! This time, I get to take my entire family, and I'm really excited!

btw - My fi's name is Brian, too. :)

Honestly, I thought *most* of the attractions there were overrated/overpriced, but as a child I would have loved Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge.


That said, I recommend spending as much time as possible in the park, the aquarium, the space needle (you get 2 rides up for the price of 1 - we did 1 during the day and 1 at night), the tram is kinda expensive but it offers a higher and different view of the area and there is a decent gift shop at the top. There are a ton of putt putt/go cart places in Pigeon Forge.


There is a small pizza place, Ogles, on US-431 just outside of town that was really good. Flapjacks does great breakfast fast and cheap. Bubba Gump is okay if you like seafood. Hard Rock Cafe basically sucked.


Parking is free along River Rd., you have to pay everywhere else.


We used Gatlinburg Log Cabin Rental by Rainbow for our cabin and if we ever go back, we'd use them again.


I'm sure there is more, if I think of anything else I'll let you know

I am considering using them in this Fall.  What do you think?  I am so afraid of doing all this sight unseen.  Please let me know your satisfaction with them.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
