Thousands of couples have held their wedding ceremony in the Smoky Mountain resort towns of Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg, Tenn.

That’s why the Smokies rival Las Vegas as a wedding destination.

Our non-credit wedding seminar on Jan. 23, 2010, at the Sevierville Civic Center will help you get involved in this industry by teaching you how to direct the rehearsal, wedding, and reception.

You’ll receive a detailed manual on wedding etiquette, traditions, customs, and new directing techniques.

The seminar fee (includes a box lunch) is $99 if you register by Dec. 16 and $109 from Dec. 17-Jan. 23.

Seminar hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Online registration is available.

The seminar leader will be Lana Needham, a wedding consultant for more than 20 years and author of A Bride’s Dream: The Perfect Wedding for Any Budget.
