Airbnb has quickly become one of our favourite hotel alternatives, and the ideal way to immerse ourselves in a destination while travelling. It also doesn’t hurt that it helps save a few dollars on accommodations–so we don’t feel so guilty about splurging on that five-course tasting menu.
Staying at a luxury rental, sure. But what about wedding at one? More and more brides are skipping traditional wedding venues and renting everything from a castle in Scotland, to a Tuscan villa, to a modern home in Bali for their nuptials. Before you book a hotel for your walk down the aisle, check out Airbnb’s list of the top 10 most wish-listed homes for weddings. You may love one so much that you’ll consider releasing that hold on your hotel block.
A few tips for throwing your wedding at a rental property:
Be sure to select “suitable for events” under featured amenities when searching for wedding venues.
Before booking, let your host know you’re planning a wedding. They’ll likely be extra accommodating when it comes to production on the ground, and share red flags you’ll need to know pre-booking to avoid added costs. Don’t forget to ask questions—your host will likely have great recommendations for local caterers, floral designers, musicians and more.
