Sure, you could go to Pigeon Forge for the mist-covered Smoky Mountains, world-class music venues and Dollywood (country music sweetheart Dolly Parton's very own theme park), but you'd be missing out on what really makes Pigeon Forge perfect for a destination wedding.

See, unlike most states, Tennessee doesn't require a blood test to issue a marriage license, making it an ideal spot for couples looking to blur the line between destination wedding and elopement. Just find a chapel, walk in single, and leave as bride and groom.
