Why a vacation rental is the perfect venue for your wedding


I want my wedding to be just like everyone else’s and as expensive as possible…said no one ever.

Your wedding day is supposed to be one of the best days of your life, and you shouldn’t have to sacrifice your own personal style or break the bank to achieve wedding day bliss. One way to meet such perfection is to rent a vacation home as the venue for your nuptials. Vacation rentals offer unique, cost effective solutions when it comes to the details that are important to you as you plan your momentous celebration.

To start, the sky’s the limit when it comes to location and an ideal setting for your wedding if you decide to book a vacation rental. This is because rentals come in all shapes, sizes and locations making it possible for you to turn your dream into a reality. Sites like FlipKey offer thousands of rental options ranging from rustic countryside farms to charming castles, so you won’t have to settle as you plan your big day. Picking a private vacation rental will ensure that you’re in your preferred location and that only invited guests are in attendance.bridesmaids_backyard_home

Once you’ve chosen the perfect vacation rental for your wedding, you’ll have the flexibility to handpick the vendors you want for your special day. That mouthwatering filet mignon from your favorite restaurant or the famous BBQ from a local establishment become possible meal options when you use a vacation rental as your venue. This is because you won’t have to go with more expensive options that a generic reception hall or bustling hotel might need.

Since most wedding-friendly vacation rentals offer affordable nightly and weekly rates you’ll save a buck or two that you can put toward a romantic honeymoon. You’ll likely need to book the rental for many days at a time, which will help you save on separate fees and charges that you’d typically rack up on rehearsal, ceremony and reception costs at a more traditional venue. The extra time on the property, especially before the ceremony, will reduce any last minute stress and give you time to put any finishing touches on the décor.

Finally, having the vacation rental for several days also means that the reception doesn’t have to end early or at a designated time. You can continue to dance the night away with family and friends for as long as you’d like. You and your wedding party can even crash at the rental saving money on costly hotel rooms. Vacation rentals offer all the comforts of a home away from home so don’t be afraid to take advantage of amenities like a gourmet kitchen or hot tub to keep the party going.

Keep in mind that not all properties have to feel like you are hosting your wedding at someone else’s home. From sprawling Cape Cod beach houses with room for the whole family to reconnect throughout the wedding festivities, to organic farms with rustic barns and a farmhouse for the couple to stay after a night of dancing under the stars and a bonfire, you can rent a property that feels authentic to your personal style.

If you envision your fairytale wedding to be unique, personal and affordable then start browsing vacation rentals for your perfect venue.
