Weddings in the North Carolina Mountains
The mountains of Western North Carolina are a popular location for destination wedding, not just for people from North Carolina but couples from surrounding states and even overseas. The natural beauty of the NC Mountains plus the moderate climate in Spring, Summer, Fall and even Winter make year-round having having a wedding in Hot Springs very attractive. Of course, guests are always excited to learn that they will have a getaway for a couple of days in a pleasant, scenic location.
Hot Springs Increasingly Popular
In the 1800’s, Hot Springs, NC was a popular mountain destination for people to get away from the heat, soak in our natural beauty, and rejuvenate in the hot mineral springs for which the town is named. Today, Hot Springs is a popular destination for all of the same reasons. Recently named the Best Small Mountain Town from Georgia to West Virginia by readers of Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine, the town and area has much to offer your wedding guests whether it be for 4,10, 100, or more.
A Few Days With Family and Friends
Because Hot Springs is a popular getaway, we have an unusual number of restaurants, shops and accommodations for a town our size. With a nice selection of hotels, motels, suites, bed and breakfasts and cabins and vacation rentals, accommodations for 150-200 people are no problem. We even have a number of campgrounds for the more adventurous.
Plenty to Do
For weddings, there is generally a schedule whether it be a rehearsal and rehearsal dinner or a gathering at a local eatery. The day of the celebration, people are often busy getting ready decorating, getting dressed (whether formal or casual), and attending the ceremony and reception.
As a small mountain town, Hot Springs is easy to get around and most things are within walking distance. As a result, family and friends will have plenty of opportunity to spend time together over lunch, at a tavern, soaking in the hot mineral springs, hiking, rafting or relaxing on the front porch overlooking the mountains.
A Variety of Venues
Hot Springs also has a large selection of locations to celebrate your wedding, including intimate locations at vacation rentals for smaller groups, outdoor venues which accommodate large party tents, historical properties with a variety of facilities, spots with gazebos, and more. There are even some outdoor locations such as Max Patch or St. Judes Chapel in Trust for very small events.
